“I bought this HDMI cable around Christmas time.

When hooked up with a flux capacitor and a selenium rectifier or wheatstone bridge, you can view the future in quadraphonic phasal matrices.
Some temporal distortion is an unfortunate artifact, but it should be fixed in an uprgade due by the CES.
What’s great about it: Can also be used with a four-poster bed
What’s not so great: No discount for buying by the case quanties (more…)
