So, they waste two pages of a thin magazine to try to persuade us to spend more money than we need to, on a woefully limited supply of outdated stock, from people who know less about it than we do?

A friend used to refer to it as "The Arapiles Mountains"....

I sometimes use 'The Arapiles"....

but in both cases it is always a piss take

Because thatís what you get from sitting around on rock ledges all day, as well as it being an abbreviation.
