Preposterous products for people with more money than brains

Its still a bit early for an ONT, so I'll entertain you morons with this for a few hours.

Behold the Wattgate 381 "Audio Grade" Duplex Socket. To normal human eyes, it appears to be a rather ordinary, albeit decent quality, duplex power receptacle...one you might expect to pay a few bucks for rather than the $.49 crap in the big bin at Home Depot.

But, no - this beauty clocks in at just under $150/each...only about 100X more than a nice P&S CR-15 which I use everywhere and costs about a buck and a half at Lowes.

You really need to check out the customer reviews for this baby at that link and I think you'll see what a tremendous value it provides.

...It would be great to experience the unmatched audio-grade capabilities of this duplex socket on road trips or while jogging with an iPod. Looking forward to the next generation wireless model!...

...I bought the WATTGATE 381 AUDIO GRADE DUPLEX SOCKET to power the US Airforces Stargate at the Cheyenne in Colorado and WOW!!! We dialed out and made an instant connection the Pegasus Galaxy Stargate without even using a ZPM!...

I feel like such a fool for investing in all those cheap $1.50 CR-15's when I could have been getting $150 Wattgate 381's to plug my StarGate into..
