Like most addictions, CDC's Flashback is not inexpensive, but, hey, you may as well put what's left of that shrinking 401k to good use. Who needs stocks when you can have something with the looks of a classic movie star, the moves of a world-class gymnast, the most modern of comforts and conveniences, and perhaps best of all, the blissful sonic qualities of a heavenly choir. A sound investment, in other words.
