Atomic Fallout Falling on eBay

Yes, the nuclear menace and Capitalism have long gone hand-in-hand. Even today! Here they are, the threats of Atomic Annihilation being sold on eBay. Bid high and bid often while the bidding is hot! Or you can be like me and just look :)

I wish I could get Junior to show this kind of gumption as these boys are demonstrating. Usually it's a major achievement just to see him crawl out of bed and get dressed in the morning!

This would be a good thing to put on the bathroom door. Of course!

Oh my gosh. I love CD stuff and this is all awesome. I have an awesome CD book on preparing a fallout shelter, etc., but I can never afford the other things on here.

They are crazy expensive, aren't they? And I never see anything like this in our local shops either, so my guess is that these items are maybe rarer now than a person would think. Which drives demand even more. But its all good - people are putting some value in history, as they should!
