Found a nearly identical hourglass online for $11,980 less. This guy's not only too expensive, his ego is the size of Manhattan.

It's very nice, but not $12,000 nice. The video is very watchable but he takes himself so seriously that it's almost a parody of itself.

Thanks for sharing this post and for your great blog!
