I would love to have one, too, but I don't think there have been any produced since the 2004 model year. If they still make 'em, I might have to go and get one.

As a dancer, I'd head for the shoes and stock up! I go through these things like you wouldn't believe and they are all expensive! I'd head for the Supadance aisle!

Now, my other thing is cars. I'd rush into the Summit and head for the Mopar department!!!

You did say 'anywhere' didn't you? In that case, how about Fort Knox. could do a lot in 3 minutes.

My place would be, go figure, the Guitar Center. And I would head for the keyboards and sound systems sections. Ive always wanted a cordless mic, a Roland Ax-1, my own sound processor, my own monitors (the ones I have here arent mine and we have 2 other sets at the studio), a couple of Takamine acoustic guitars, Id grab a couple more Alesis synths, hey, I KNOW I could clean up GC in 3 minutes with no problem!!
i would pick a bank ...go into the safe and take all the money

The stupid thing has given me a lot of trouble for the past 3 years. The cooling fan is now making an annoying noise, so that's probably a sign that something is about to go out in it, and if it does, I'll be going to Fry's Electronics for a Mitsubishi or Sony HD TV, either Plasma or LCD. Forget the DLP platform!

I also have a 27" Magnavox regular CRT TV, which I bought 13 years ago and I never had any trouble with it. Not bad for something I paid $450 for back then. The Panasonic is about 2 months short of being 4 years old, and I've already spent half of what I originally paid for it in replacement digital lamps!
I hear ya' on the troubles with your "HD-TV".... I've heard similar from my tv repairman. Recently had to come and so a minor repair (first ever) on an 18 yr. old Projection tv. Never had the color guns replaced, still gives out a good picture. Fine for me! Of course its a RCA. The other good tv I had was an 18yr old Zenith floor model with the walnut cabinet, got it at a scratch/dent sale off the floor of the appliance store. NEVER had any repair calls to it. Finally left it in the basement of our old house when we moved. It was starting to get fuzzy/smudgy picture. All these new-fangled plasma this, tiny that...they have more new troubles than you can shake a stick at.

For 3 minutes of shopping? Easy, the NCU Credit Union two blocks away. I'd take a wagon to pull behind my scooter, and I'd shop in the vault.

I'll ditto the response of Best Buy! As much as they annoy me sometimes, I could have a REALLY fun time shopping there for 3 minutes... only problem is that I couldn't cover the whole store, but I'd definitely hit the computers and digital cameras. Some other good places would be Target, Petco (my critters are expensive!), Barnes & Noble, and Macy's.

P.S. I'm moving this to the new Shopping forum, if you don't mind.

LOL... I didn't even think of cars! In that case, I'll hit up the Lamborghini/Lotus/Bentley dealership on Van Ness.

It'd either have to be Best Buy or Neimen Marcus. Both I doubt I could clean out in 3 minutes but I definetly could pick up quite a few items that I've always wanted.
