    LOL, that reminds me of a story my employer told me. He made the mistake of pissing at an electric fence.
    Better him than me, needless to say. :laugh2:

    You have to admit.. tinkeling has a ring to it. Even though it was not a word before :naughty:

    My boy had to try it when he was younger too, and always encouraged his friends to do the same. No wonder they don't speak to him today! LOL!!

    Not sure I'm following this.... Small bells have tinkled forever, since they were made. Then there is that small Pixie that got her name from it.... Tinker-bell.
    Young boys have tinkled in the toilet since my parents were growing up...
    Maybe its a local thing, I just never knew it!

    I wouldn't have guessed you had any difficulties with it at all.

    Cheers mate, I try. I can be in between half decent at it and suck at it. Depending on what time of day it is.

    I am 100% wireless these days, and this is one of the reasons. Get it checked ASAP!

    I once got a shock from my strings after I put my slippers on and dragged them across a carpeted floor than I didn't do that anymore and every thing was fine. Cal

    I was playing outside once and every time I stepped off our plywood stage or touched my lip to the mic I got a nice shock. Felt like I'd been tazed a few times by the time we finished our show!
