    Bravo! Nice display!

    And yes, I bought one! The Erco Figure Eight Challenge has probably increased global commerce!

    Excellent! Time to stir up some figure 8 activity on this long-quiet thread. What do YOU boys got to show?

    Whit, at this point I'll settle for you walking a Figure 8 in your R2-D2 beanie. :)
