    ^^Correct, but Fox News stated ban, so those that cant or wont read past the headline are going with ban.


    But you yourself called it a ban.
    Is this the shiny new object of the week, the straw ban............lol.


    Yep, that is exactly what Fox called it a" ban", are you arguing that fact? I know where you find your shiny objects.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk Signature S60's;Cables: Wireworld Eclipse IC; Audioquest Big Sur IC; LAT International speaker cables; PS Audio AC-3 power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; SDA2BTL's, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    Political memes posted as fact and accepted as fact, are sign language of the ignorant, for the ignorant

    So, you admit you didn’t read past the headline. Don't worry, it's ok.

    Political Correctness'.........defined

    "A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a t-u-r-d by the clean end."

    ... asking for a friend...

  • I haven't seen "Right Guard" spray deodorant in a while.
    Excellent choice for making impromptu flame throwers and/or spud gun launcher propellant.

    Until the Right Guard supply drought situation eases up, I guess continue using MAPP gas as a suitable replacement.

    The propellant in those cans is propane i believe. Just buy propane and forgo the sticky residue....

    ahem. tap-tap Is this thing on?

    I just want to say...

    This thread is almost neck and neck with the storied black paint thread in the annals of Polk lore!

    IMO of course.
    YMMV.

    Maybe some of us are looking for the sticky residue effect.

    ..... for scientific reasons.

    It never ceases to amaze me the things some of you folks will argue about.

    Splitting lanes with no skid lid. Double stupid Texas thing.

    Idiot I used to do some work for lived to slowly split lanes at red lights. Not to get to the front but to look into cars. If the driver had his/her phone in-hand, he'd shatter their side window and scream at them about texting and driving (at a stop light). Then ride off going through Facebook and making posts on his own phone. He feels broken windows and dented roofs were doing society a favor.

    Yeah....if he did that to me, I'd also do society a favor. Him and that bike would be at the bottom of the nearest pond.

    Concrete to Italians is like duct tape to Americans....lots of uses. You can use concrete to beautify things, or solve problems.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    So... in other words, when you say to someone. You and me, we need to take a walk", it would be advisable to be in a very public space. :p :s
