It was a bit strange to read this sentence after having just read the thread on semi-automatic pistols....

My first moment was in high school circa 1985 or 1986 when I got some Cerwin Vegas, a Pioneer receiver, and a Fisher CD player. I'd had boomboxes and consoles until then, and the step up was dramatic. My CDs came alive. I remember the drums on Rush's Power Windows (an early "DDD" recording, back when I looked for that kind of info), how they sounded so real and full in the intros for "Marathon" and "Mystic Rhythms".

Nah, I'm 34 and she still tells me once a week I'm going to shoot my eye out.

This past hunting season, getting a burr in the eye was close enough for her to nag me some more.
