    Waiting to hear the review... Can you do a A/B comparison between Lowes and Home Depot?

    Check your math there big guy. The first post was made on 05-30-2005, 12:23 AM by masterpp.

    I wonder if he ever found that ever elusive black paint. :rolleyes:

    I don't know who you are or where you came from, but thanks for taking the humor out of this thread.

    Head/****/moron? You want to go head to head fine. Check your math again. This thread was updated for the first time since 9/14/07 on 1/7/08, post # 20 was the bump. That's more than two weeks.

    As you were saying?

    Quit being so GD sensitive! This WAS a funny thread. Some peoples kids. Pffft. Oh, and since personal insults are not allowed on this forum, how about I provide a mental image to you to make up for the fact that you called me a moron, ok?

    BL'Ome. I think we are even now.

    Who am I? I am John
    Where did I come from? New Jersey.

    Want to threaten me now? 'Cause that'll be fun and it seems to be where you are heading.

    There, now that that is out of the way.

    The thread was started way back in May 05. It was bumped for the first time in November 05. Then it was forgotten about until January 06. Which was really the 3rd time and not the second. Then it got bumped AGAIN in September of 07. Then it was bumped again in January of 08. The last time it went stale was January 8th, 2008. It was then bumped again on January 22nd, 2008 in a lame attempt to be funny. January 8th is 14 days BEFORE January 22nd, that's TWO WEEKS! I was wrong on the number of times the thread was being dug up but I can add and subtract well enough to know how many days are in a week.


    Face, I did not get my hand stuck in the supercharger. Go back, read the thread again. It should clear some things up for you. Then again, you are a Chevy owner. That's not saying much.

    appadv, what can I say? From the mouths of babes.


    Hoosier21, I wasn't the one that fired the first volley. So, I'm a ****. Big deal, no sweat off my back. But hey, if I'm apparently so good at it, might as well stick with it, right?


    So go ahead everybody, cut me up some more. Try and make me look like a fool without researching your argument first. It's just the Internet but if it makes you feel cool to posture in a lame bid for acceptance at my expense, go ahead. I couldn't care less.

    Actually I'm a Buick owner at heart, that's where I learned about forced induction, bypass valves, and blow off valves.

    I remember the thread clearly, I was trying to bring some humor back into the thread.

    You may want to consider decaffeinated or releasing a little more often, you'll live longer.

    Yes, tell me how to proceed. ;) :D :D :D :D :D

    Until then, I notice that your name is "Jstas" if I recall. From reading many of your posts and getting to know you and where you do come from, it should be renamed "Just-an-****". That would seem more appropriate. Crawl back under your rock at any given moment in time as it seems with many members here on the forum that you and your attitude won't be missed.

    Good example here. http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35275

    Please do educate me on how to threaten you in the meantime as I would really like to know. I'm actually stumped on how to threaten you. Fill me in please.

    Love, Tom. XOXOXO

    Oh, BTW could you point to where masterpp could get some black paint? He would really like to know.

    Plain black paint is equivelent to zip cord. You're a total doob if you use it. To get the absolute best performance out of whatever you're painting, you need the $287/gal black paint made from pure carbon black and yak piss mixed by Tibeten monks on the slopes of the Himalayas. Anything else and and you can't call yourself a true paintophile.

    We counted some black paint once that was for Stealth bombers. They kept it in a freezer at 20 below or some such cold number. Apparently it was valued at 30 grand an ounce or some such..

    Do they have audio grade black paint? Like the type that you put on walls and it gives the room a better acoustical response? And does it work on the magic pebbles?

    yeah, I can't find it now but its sold online and in some specialty audio shops. It was kinda like the popcorny stuff they spray on ceilings, it had lots of chunks of stuff in it at various sizes, the walls looked textured when painted. Supposed to work quite well though according to my local dealer, just as well as 2in foam.
