I just thought I'd throw this out there! I got a couple pair of the boots for my museum and to give to friends and the last time I went to the Blarney Stone, I remembered that I was on my thief. So, I decided to hide and take a count of how many ppl actually ran up to the stone to get a pair of boots.... Ya- this was ridiculous. I got to the stone when it was at 24k seconds remaining. I threw a DVD in and laid my laptop on the coffee table and just casually took a count...... at 18k seconds left....... roughly only a QUARTER of the time had gone by since I started counting, over 400!!!!! different characters had run past me! I have had enough counting at this point, I just thought I'd share the CRAZYINESS of what I saw!
