a few years ago on a boat project I was working on. I eventually either got them from Ebay or Amazon, but had to buy like 100 of each. I needed like 2 of them each.

I have a lot of resistors if I ever need to calibrate a fuel gauges again.

we just had a bill that we paid each month. I would go in and just put my oil and filter on my dads account. Look at a pin up poster, talk local football and eat some peanuts. Those were some good ol' days.

There used to be more of them than McDonalds back in the 80's. Surprised I dont still get emails from them asking for my zip like when I got batteries. I remember a place where a stand alone one was on a street not 300 yards from where another one was in a Mall across the road. Now they are all gone including the Mall

Me, I went in one I think 3 years ago before a trip to New Orleans CFP game to get some $2 bills.

every town needs a not so nice, trashy BYOB strip club where you can procure meth sold as cocaine and all sorts of other illegal necessities.

As it stands, I've got a local option that's better than Radioshack even in it's heyday.
