    Ernie Ball Cobalt

    Climate has a lot to do with it but I've gotten many bad Ernie Ball strings. They always give me freebies when it happens but I've had some that were only half wound (half way the length of the string) and some missing ball ends. Just defects, no big deal. My issue with EB's is the G string on...

    Ernie Ball Cobalt

    Yes as in after every set (1 hour give or take the venue). Wipe them down or they will be unusable by the next set. I have my strings changed every 4 days on stage guitars. Daily on studio axes. These strings retain their original tone longer than nickel but the feel gets terrible after minimal...

    Ernie Ball Cobalt

    Do you topwrap? I haven't broken a string in years now since I started topwrapping. I dig the Cobalts. Not as great on a Strat as they are on a LP though. For life span they have tone for weeks. Not a huge fan of the feel on the wrapped strings (10-46) but the unwrapped strings have the best...

    My 12 y/o is being bullied @ school

    I was never picked on as a child. If someone called me a name or something I'd laugh and call them something worse. Once I had a kid try to strangle me nearly to death from behind because his taunts wouldn't get a rise out of me. After the duty teacher pulled him off of me *this was 5th grade*...

    Yeah, this is one of the reason why I haven't been around much lately. Not the only one by far, but the biggest one for sure. Hendrix Ray Leigh Robichaud, born February 11th at 13:54 2011. Baby Hendrix by LoKi6922, on Flickr Baby Hendrix the Beatles by LoKi6922, on Flickr More...

    1928 Cell Phone?

    Remember the tsunami a few years ago, and how they found ruins of an ancient city nobody even knows the name of? They've found intricately carved metal pieces under the ocean that are as precise as a CNC machine can make. As for carbon dating, this has been talked about for years, and is still...

    You’re not doing me a favor

    We all worked those jobs man... They are not designed to be a career choice. I served, I pumped gas and changed oil, I've sat behind a cash register and smiled at angry people all freakin' day long for years before I decided I wanted better. People blame the economy or whatever else, but the...

    You’re not doing me a favor

    Yeah man, but that's your job. You are more than welcome to work somewhere else. Nobody forces you to work in a service or retail environment. I'm a network admin as my day job, but this even applies to the full time gigging/touring band I'm in... If I want people to remember that I'm good...

    + eleventy billion. People in server positions also assume that tips are implied now. Some restaurants even have the gratuity included on your bill... :wtf: I do not eat at those places. I don't care how good of a wait staff you think you've hired, they don't get EXTRA for simply doing...

    1928 Cell Phone?

    Well, they've found bits and pieces of unexplainable things, but no evidence. Carbon dating is ultimately flawed though... I'm not sure I buy the 100's of millions of years ago stuff... Hopefully they keep finding cool stuff though! Just a few more notes about this video... It wasn't a scene...

    Oh yeah... Without using it it will evaporate. It's not a closed system, or else it wouldn't light when you flicked it, it'd boom. :D

    The Holographic Universe - Crystalinks ;) Nothing is impossible. It's just a matter of time. Look at it this way... Science has done some crazy things recently. It has transported matter from one location to another, it has entangled particles and used them to send information INSTANTLY from...

    1928 Cell Phone?

    You can go back even further. There were maps available in the time before we knew the world was round that show exactly what the land mass UNDER the ice of Antarctica looks like. We *current man* weren't able to view the land under the ice until the invention of radar and satellite imaging...

    1928 Cell Phone?

    Yep. Without getting into dimensional theory and showing myself as the nerd I am, if you did travel back in time and kill your own father, you'd simply create a different branch in the time line, but it wouldn't make a lick of a difference to any one other than yourself, because you'd be the...

    You’re not doing me a favor

    It's a completely different world now... I remember seeing it happen... The constant raising of taxes and prices didn't help, because we as consumers just proved we'd pay anything by still buying their crap, regardless of price increase, or quality even. Well, not all of us, but the majority of...

    Zippo Lighters

    Not if you use Zippo brand fluid. It is actually tasteless and odourless and supposedly burns cleaner than butane now. I use a Zippo to smoke my pipe, as I quit cigs 2 months ago and kept on with just the pipe. It's great, but don't use the cheapy fluid. I can also light my pipe outdoors now...
