Might be a handy thing to wear to the Second Amendment March or the roughly simultaneous Tea Party protests taking place in DC this April.

Pretty cool gadget. And on the manufacturer's website, they are available for the "bargain price" of only $199.99...

http://camshades.com/default.aspx

The specifications are pretty impressive though--4gb of on-board memory, and an SD card slot, so you could record a BOATLOAD of video. Plus an MP3 player.

If anyone out there is volunteering to be a "test case" a pair of these may be well worth their weight in gold...

Oh, if only they came with "driving amber" lenses like the Serengeti sunglasses that I love so much... ;)

Amber lenses... Hmmm... Now I'm tempted....

Not only would these be super-useful for OCers, but they would be VERY fun to use on the range. Now THAT would make for some cool YouTube clips...

DOOM? I couldn't play that, didn't have 15MB free to install it. I had to stay with Castle Wolfenstien. (plus it came on some stupid round plastic thingy I didn't have a drive for.)

I still have DRUG WARS. The code was so simple I moved it over to my TI-89 by hand. Those BBS games would only give you a certain number of moves for a day. I used to play this one, I forget the name, where you had a space ship and traded goods around the galaxy and such. ASCII graphics were so awesome with EGA video.

Ah, my mother loved (sarcasm) the sound when she picked up the extension line..
