@shakin: Well, I suppose we all do things like that... things that seem peculiar to others.

I myself like to eat my blackberry pie (or rhubarb pie) drenched in a bowl of milk. I also used to put strawberries in a bowl of milk topped with sugar (very healthy).

I swear, I've scoured the internet up and down and could not find a picture of it... but yesterday I was reminded of those old plastic shells that cassette tapes were in when you would first buy them from the department store. Then when you would get home it was like trying to open a vault trying to get the thing off. Anybody remember these? Have a picture?

Something like this?



Yeah, I'm having a hard time finding a picture too.

Basically a clear plastic thing that locked the tape (or CD) in and was about two feet long so it would be hard to hide under clothes? I remember this. But never had any trouble with them, as the music store would remove it at the time of purchase, instead of making you take it home and throw it away (!)



EDIT: They might be called "keepers" or "security holders". Still having trouble finding good pictures to confirm though

Well, yes. Sort of like that. I'll come up with a drawing to give a better idea of the look of them. These were a type of keeper that was actually part of the purchase of the tape. There were no security features, other than they made the cassette a much larger item that could not be taken from the store so easily, as you mentioned.

Okay so, this isn't exact but, I think it's pretty close. It's just one solid piece of plastic with no way to open it. You basically had to cut it off with scissors somehow. Very annoying.
