Alternate Dimensions and Ancient Technology
In physics, there is a theory about alternate dimensions. Every decision we make, the opposite decision is played out in an alternate timeline. In 1971, Sears gave us a glimpse into an alternate dimension.
A dimension where Liberace is not a flamboyant piano player but rather a plain blue collar working Joe. Maybe this Liberace played piano but he did not have the showmanship of our Liberace. Probably went by Wladziu (Polish for Walter) or even plain Walt.

I have observed that when people see an 8 track player or tapes, they point and giggle, snicker, or even laugh heartily. Actually, what makes most people laugh is the prices that others put on 8 tracks at garage sales. It almost makes me feel sorry for the poor things (the 8 tracks not the idiots trying to sell them at ridiculous prices). They used to be the state of the art technology and now they have been reduced to being fodder for humor. Here are some 8 track players in their full high tech glory.

8 track tapes are NOT collectibles.
