Yeah, he was the guy you'd find drinking the bong water.

Maybe if I try the stuff I'll understand what "spiritual messenger cats don't have rectums" means. And don't ruin it by explaining the meaning beforehand.


Ha ha ha.

Has anyone noticed that when playing back music that every source has a "correct" volume?

By that I mean, the sweet spot.

Increase the volume just 1 more and it becomes too loud and blaring, decrease it 1 less (than the sweet spot) and you can't quite achieve lift-off. Not enough "grunt factor" to rock out (or jazz out or symphony out or country out or...) with.

It seems that each "source" has a perfect volume that varies.

Or is this just me?


Looking at your avatar....would you say that your significant other is in her/your sweetspot.....or exceeding it?

I guess I should have read the whole thread before posting. It has been 18 years since for me. In college, after it warmed up during the spring, every Friday we met at the Bell Tower for "High Noon". You couldn't get in trouble for it ......back then.

This thread hijack sure is bringing all of the old stoners out of the woodpile generating a lot of interest.
