"I Found It On E-Bay"

A reader sends a link to one of the more interesting auctions I've seen in a while on E-Bay.

~ ORIGINAL PRICE: $32,648.00 ~
Manufactured in May, 1998. This U.S. Military Submarine camera is in excellent cosmetic condition. Uses a 31-pin connector. Taken from a working system. We do not have means to test the item, therefore it is sold as-is. Best offers will be considered.
Weight: Approx. .88 lb.
Measurements: Approx. 4" x 2.5" Diameter
Videospection cameras are used in a broad range of mission-critical applications such as deep ocean & N.A.S.A. space mission photography.
THIS ITEM HAS BEEN RECENTLY DEMILITARIZED BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT. THIS ITEM IS FOR SALE ONLY TO U.S. CITIZENS WITH OFFICIAL RESIDENCE IN THE U.S. YOUR RESIDENCE WILL BE VERIFIED BEFORE ITEM IS SHIPPED.


Not quite sure what I'd do with it, but it'd be pretty cool to have. I'll have to talk to SubBasket about this one... (she, of course, will say the money would be better spent on baskets...)

As I look through E-Bay, I notice there's lots of cool stuff from my old boat USS Connecticut. (Not so much from Topeka or Jimmy Carter.) Still, the model I have of her is much cooler than this one...

All the better to spy on the girl's boyfriends with... Or you could put it near the stairs, raise it to the upstairs landing and see what the boys are up to... Or use it to take a picture of the cat's nefarious blanket deeds.. The possibilities are truly endless.
