Other blogger’s put wish lists up. Things from Amazon, DVDs and the like. Widgets. Gewgaws.
I want the same thing I wanted when I was a little boy: I want a jet.
In fact, I want an A-4 Skyhawk. And you, gentle reader, can buy one for me. For around $149k from EBay,* unless you want to go through the high drama of the actual auction. Which, you know: Be my guest, if that’s the way you’d prefer to handle it.
Oh, and the seller says that I’ll need around ~$750k to make her airworthy. Maybe you can all pitch in on that.
He also says that he “has a line” on a TA-4J cockpit that can be used to “convert a single.” Which is just enough to queer me on the whole enterprise, because that makes it clear that he has no idea what he’s talking about. You don’t just slap a -J cockpit into -C and call it a day. Wouldn’t fit *. *sigh*
