I ate a chili pepper and when I woke up, this site was here.
Around Summer 2002, I was spending money on nothing but bills for school and who knows what. My brother had just gotten Scars, to which my impression was "that's really dumb to spend all that money on sunglasses", but then I tried them on and really noticed the difference in quality. I'd never seen a lens be so clear before. My comment was Everything looks like the Autolevel function in Photoshop. What a nerd I am sometimes. At that point the Splice came out and my brother wished he had waited and gotten that instead. So one day when I was at a cookout playing hooky from work, the one shred of champagne taste that I had kicked in and I decided to get a pair
After that, I got a pair of minutes, but they were too girly and didn't look like the online picture, so I gave those to my sister and then got a pair of leather Mars, since they were so odd. That lead to a pair of 24k X-Metal XX's, and a Time Bomb. Then on and on and on. Once the site took off, it was all over. I think I had a dozen or so when that happened.

Welcome to the site

Yes, bottom is definitely the Black Chrome.

Black Chrome is the one on the Scar and Black Iridium Splice. It has a slightly purple finish. Dark Chrome is flatter, like the Matt Kennseth Splice.

Here's that same pair in 2009 along with the matching Penny.
I believe we were told that they were screen worn at the time, but it just didn't seem to match what we saw in the movie. Plus movie memorabilia has its own market, so it would make sense that anything screen wore would end up in an auction.
I did hear that the Rodman Zeros, just basically fell apart during and after filming, so no hope for those.

Yeah, I'm sort of feeling like 'Oh Jean is getting more than a cameo in this new movie. Remember her?'

Awesome, look forward to it.

Ooh, I want to see that lens, but not really buy a whole OCE model to do so.

Nice, congrats on rejoining up.

and I got custom 100th pairs with Century Club etched. I was giving him a hard time earlier about not matching. Rick is a trend setter.

Those look great.

That's rough. I just never trust the checked luggage, so I always do carry-on only. Seems they're cracking down on that too now.

The serial numbers

No, sold off most of them after the last breeding season. I was gung ho on diving into the next, but then I used some of the profits to buy a new one, and it died a month later, and it just sort of made me look at things and realize that I didn't have the time. I sold off all but 6, and then last year down to 2. I have the all white Ivory, and the Paradox Albino still. It's manageable, and a stock of rats lasts me half a year now instead of a month. I miss it at times, but I have to be realistic about my free time.

I feel like we need OK Soda to make a comeback to match

Supposed to be online only, but I saw some reports of it showing up in NYC.
May 24, 2019 12:42 PM
The model is called the Four S. It's from the early 2000s
