. . . there are 'offense junkies' who just love to be offended."

-------Richard Dawkins

Yes!  I know folks who go around with their offense detectors fully deployed and connected to huge databases of real and imagined offenses the search results of which are fed directly into outrage engines.  Have fun folks.

Most ad copy targeted at musicians is presented in terms of moons and Junes and Ferris wheels and dizzy dancing ways you feel. It's not that easy for an actual engineer to follow.  It's very much the antithesis of Joe Friday: "Anything but the facts ma'am."

When my 335 was stolen and I decided to go Strat for a while, I played every strat in town---I had about $3,500 in insurance money to play with. We had four full time retail music stores in town then (we have Guitar Center now) and I think I played about 20 Srats. The "stratiest" sounding, best playing one was an American-made Strat for $800. It sounded way better than the most expensive one in town, a custom shop reissue  for around $3,000. And it had far better tuners and a better whammy bar. Much of the hardware on the custom shop reissue was crap on purpose because it had been crap in 1954 and it had to match.  "Vintage" all-original authenticity buys you resale value, not playability or good tone.

That does it with all this sexual assault and gender discrimination crap. It's burkas for EVERYBODY ! ! !  Men, women, boys, girls, goldfish---EVERYBODY ! ! !  I told you this is what it would come to if you couldn't behave, but noooo . . .  Everyone was just too damn busy to pay attention.

Everybody into your bags---NOW!  I have a case of 55 gallon Hefty Lawn and Leaf bags here that you can poke some eye holes in if your burka is at home, but tomorrow I want to see real burkas on EVERYBODY or there will be hell to pay, people!

. . . you can get a Flat Earth pizza at Papa John's with cheese-filled arctic hump in the center and a stuffed crust antarctic rim. Can anyone confirm or deny?

I want to move to one of the millions of square miles in Flat Earth Australia that no one has ever been to because they can't find them. Maybe then everyone will leave me alone.  See, Australia's size, as misreported by NASA, the National Geographic and the Australian government, is about 3 million square miles, but if you place the east and west edges of Australia, say Perth and Sidney, on longitudinal lines that emerge radially across infinite space from the North Pole (as we Flat Earthers now know them to), then Austrailia turns out to be more like 6 or 8 million square miles in area.  Well, it turns out that no one on the ground in Australia can find any of these millions of extra unreported square miles, so I'm thinking that would be a perfect place to hide.
