    What the heck? Some people are insanely wasteful. Thank goodness you saved it from the landfill.

    That would have been a much better find if it'd been an old Mongoose, before it became a dept store brand. At least it's shiny!

    Barely....

    This IS one of the better versions of the Wal-Mart Mongoose, meaning "not as crappy as the rest".
