Remember when Radio Shack sold electronic components? And didn't suck?
Of course, last time I went into The Shack looking for anything more complicated than a pack of batteries you could also still see music videos on MTV, so there's that.
I once got an awesome strobe light kit from Radio Shack, and I remember they carried photoelectric burglar alarm kits and a bunch of other neat junk. Anybody else miss the cool stuff?
