  1. This description makes me think of the aesthetic and tactile differences between real and fake breasts. 😁
  2. I've been procrastinating about joining this karma out of fear. I've been afraid to venture down this bunny hole considering my past experiences. A few years back I bought my first Carver amp and at last count, I now have 11 amps. I'm afraid the tubes will be equally vexing and cause me to seek them out beyond reasonable explanation and elicit financial irresponsibility. That being said, I'd love to do a SS/Tube shootout. If it hasn't been taken, count me in with 34. Very cool karma
  3. It reminds of an Emo Phillips joke. Roughly quoting him, he says: it's nice to see young people in the audience as well as those who, let's just say, were born a more comfortable distance from the apocalypse.
  4. I always preferred the fantasy sequel "Debbie Does Dishes"

    If they're not oxygen free...they're crap! 😉
  6. I remember reading an article about this movie by humorist Dave Barry. He said they must have made the cinematic decision to strap the camera to the head of a hyperactive seal.
  7. Dennis, The last M500tmkII, that you had listed, taunted me relentlessly until I eventually bought it. This new black faced specimen is calling me even louder. However, having little to no income since March, I can't even entertain pulling the trigger on this one. I hope she finds a good home. -PhilDent
  8. This is a different type of work bench. I built it for my woodworking projects. It's primarily an assembly table with space below for all my hand/power tools. It also is the proper height to be used as an outfeed table for my table saw, and it can be split into pieces and stored easily.
  9. I recently bought a 2020 GMC Yukon and it takes 8 quarts of 0w-20. I bought four 6 quart cases of Mobile 1 at Costco for $37.00 each. Your deal seems too good to be true.
  10. The purchase that put me on this Carver journey was an amplifier (a $150 EBay impulse buy). I was blown away by how much a good amp improved the sound of my outdated system. After some time descending down the bunny hole, I've acquired 11 Carver amps (I think) and now I've turned my attention more towards speakers and room treatment. I've also tried to determine a hierarchy of components to get the most bang for my buck. To my frustration, I've answered the question differently at different times and perhaps thrown good money after bad. At the risk of sounding pretentious, this is when I comfort myself with the Neil Peart quote, "The point of the journey...is not to arrive" Enjoy the music!
  11. +1 on this hot sauce. I made it a point to pick up a bottle or 2 every time I was at the Dallas airport.
  12. To roughly quote Groucho Marx: I've got half a mind to join the club and beat you over the head with it.
  13. I like the Dunkelweiss version of this Bier.
  14. The BluDento has good range too. I use it in my garage system. I've even opened up my garage door and let my neighbor across the street hook up to to my c1 and dual m500tmkiis via Bluetooth and crank the tunes. The only issue I've had is the USB power cable. It tends to fall out if you move it around.
  15. I don't notice color distortion in my frontal vision. I often wonder what kind of clown world most people live in.
