Well, with out a picture, we all know the color of Paul's eyes.
I'm pretty sure they are brown.

Dave,
Regarding your Inca series Phelps-Dodge transformers.
Be prepared to make a fortune. As urban legend has it,
Phelps-Dodge are descendants of the tribe by the same
name. You may already know P-D dabbles in the copper
market as part of metals used in feedline
manufacturing.

But before that, well before that, an Inca General
named Rumiñahui fled the marauding Spanish and took
with him a large share of the ransom he had been
collecting for his King. He disappeared into the
remote mountainous region of Ecuador called the
Llanganati. The load of gold artifacts he took with
him is considered the largest undiscovered treasure in
Latin America, valued at two billion dollars.

Much of this loot was manufactured into transformers
with gold laminates, painted in the usual black
wrinkle or dark, nearly black varnish. Clearly it was
not an issue of rust or tarnish but rather a means to
camouflage the quantity of gold as innocuous "ham
radio" transformers that people would think are worth
maybe $1, or $2 if multitap.

Just as clearly as their black finish, this "iron" has
an unusually good grip on gravity. You may indeed have
the treasure, if these transformers seem particularly
heavy.

See you on ebay , perhaps.
