  1. Just don’t stop by when your on vacation, well atleast not at the beginning, you WILL end up leaving with something, and it’s usually big and heavy.

    And bring a flashlight if your eyesight isn’t that great, its called the “Blackhole” for a reason folks. I think out of the 4 or so times I’ve been there, the lights were on once, and a good third of them were burnt out.

    I did pickup a pretty slick old mechanical calculator my last trip through.
