Why have a guy that looks like this on your ad? Does this guy have really bad teeth, or is this some new fashion?

Oakleys cost over $200 without an audio system. I'm always loosing sun glasses. I try to get them at dollar stores. I hate paying more than $10 for them. I saw a Consumers Reports article where they tested sunglasses. It turns out that optically, the real cheap ones are just as good as the expensive one. No differencees were measureable in clairity or resistance to UV.

Yes, that's the great thing; the cheap ones work just as well in all aspects. Laughing

I saw a Vin movie in a stereo store demo of a high priced video and surround sound system. Kinda pointless but I guess I understand why they don't use Schindler's List.
