Startdown: I Want to Vacuum


I came across this ad on the Craigslist just the other day: 65,000 Electron tubes. Amplifier / Radio tubes – $9999999. Before you get too worried, it is okay, they don’t actually want 9 billion dollars or however much that it. They do want to try to sell you all those tubes for the low low price of $25000. Which, while actually a mentally conceivable sum of money, is probably just as unrealistic as 9 billion for most of us. I also am not a huge fan of trying to sell anything on the internet without a picture, but they are supposed to be forthcoming! (I had to just google the webs for the lead image.)
