This is certainly true, Gord, but not only is there no accounting for taste, I'll wager there's no accounting period, when it comes to how a Russian becomes a billionaire!

This refers to an image put up by KB more than a year ago (post # 22). The "cousins" image I had put up was taken down, but here's a link for the curious:

http://wirelessnorth.ca/wp-content/u...wallpaper4.jpg

And just below KB's post #22 is my answer to Gord's lobster image (post # 28), but my entire post was taken down in that instance. To see an awesome pair of lobsters, though, go to the link Gord provided to my image in his post # 31.

Ah, the good old days . . .

How many categories of Oddities do you think there really are? I mean commercially traded of course. Not all oddities are worth money.
