When I was a kid working at Turin Bicycle Co-op in Chicago in the late 1970's we had an endless supply of Mafac brake blocks. I mean boxes and boxes. The story was that sometime around 1970 when the guys running the store were often stoned, someone had ordered 500,000 pieces instead of 500 he was supposed to have ordered.

They were pretty hard by the time I was installing them as replacements in 1978. We did a lot of toe-ing in.
