    great idea this. how long I wondered what NGD and GAS were!

    I may be wrong but I've always understood NOS to mean an unused item (guitar or anything else) that may be several or many years old but was never sold to a customer and has never been used. Still in original wrapper, in other words...?

    "Sacred Cows"
    (do you have one?)

    [​IMG]


    "Sacred Cow"

    a person or thing immune to criticism or questioning

    one that is immune from criticism, often unreasonably so

    an individual, organization, institution, etc., considered to be exempt from criticism or questioning

    figuratively, anything which is beyond criticism

    **************************************************

    "Fact"


    a claim corresponding to objective reality

    a detail concerning circumstances past and/or present

    a synonym for reality

    **************************************************

    "Opinion"

    a belief or judgment which rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty and/or meet the definition of a "fact"

    a personal view, attitude, or appraisal

    an opinion is often the result of emotion or interpretation of facts

    an opinion may be supported by an argument, however, people may draw opposing opinions from the same set of facts

    **************************************************

    "Preference"


    the selection of one thing and/or person over others

    a strong liking or personal valuation

    the option to so select, and the one selected

    a preferential bias, partiality and/or discrimination

    **************************************************

    "In–group Bias"


    a tendency to believe the members of your group has a higher status than those outside the group

    for example, guitar/amp ownership wherein anyone who endorses what you own is held in a higher status
    than those who do not endorse and/or express a preference for something other than your guitar/amp, etc.

    **************************************************

    i believe John Lennon's quote below summed it up best regarding one of the most significant music/sociological related "Sacred Cow's"
    in modern times (if not yours, without a doubt mine):

    "We were just a band that made it very, very big, that's all"


    my opinion is when someone such as Mr. Lennon indirectly addresses "Sacred Cows" – this is noteworthy...

    **************************************************

    at times, there seems to be confusion regarding differing meanings between facts, opinions, preferences
    and the irrefutable validity of sharing one's experiences... they are not synonym's of the other

    this not semantic hair splitting... words have specific and standardized meanings –
    strongly encourage knowing the meaning of a word, any word, when communicating

    class dismissed :laugh2:

    "More Cowbell!"

    [​IMG]

    "it's come to my attention some of you people
    don't know what 'more cowbell' means...

    come on, wise up

    forget urban legend crap

    it's an euphemism, if you don't the word then Google it

    'more cowbell' really means a couple of things, depending on context

    you know, context determines meaning

    one, it means the guitar needs to be louder, a lot louder

    two, it can mean the guitar solo is not long enough,
    it has to be long enough where you even forget
    what the hell song you're playing

    or, like i said, depending on context, 'more cowbell' can also mean
    turn up your amp and spank and wank away until the cows come home

    okay, you got it? good... now then, let's hear a lot 'more cowbell'"
