Are they sure the kid was male?

Boy seems to be blurred out

It wasn't the picture I was reaction to, rather the extraordinarily wide age-range given in the description. In the absence of some weird medical issue, an 8 year old is not easily confused with a 14 year old!

$10,290?!

WTF? Does it have a cat-sized gold brick in it? How is something without a transmission even worth that much money?

Copley Place has a Barneys?

I didn't know that. But I can't stand Back Bay anymore because of all the tourists. Yes, I'm a hater.
