OMG! I love that jpg. I wonder what kind of deal he got. and yes of 
course that will require a TON of custom wiring and HVAC if he intends 
to turn them all on at the same time. In fact in all seriousness that 
will most likely require an upgrade of his incoming AC connection to 
some combination of: 3 phase / 440v / mucho gage wire. I want to here 
and see more about this story. Is this in bhm? Is he blogging this? Does 
he want corporate sponsers? - just imaging a big "Enjoy Coke" banner 
above is garage as he loading up these boxes.
