    Probably live a hell of a lot longer, and have fewer grey hairs. Sheep would stop being afraid of having their coats sheared. Global warming would come to an end, North Korea would blow themselves into oblivion, and all would become at peace in the world.

    Don’t be so assuming. Today he could self identify as a female lgbtq goat, and tomorrow he might be Pricilla, Queen of the Snowdrifts.

    And Home Depot has grown exponentially thanks to us having to continually replace shrubbery, burned grass, peeling paint, and bathroom fixtures after you come to town.

    At least the lights still work... occasionally!

    I was thinking how we'd have to walk and drive on dark streets at night again.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Russ is a hack!

Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it.

    I used to honk the horn when I drove past George Grand's exit on the NJ Turnpike.

    I think of ol' George (Toasted Almond @ AK) when I see these bad boys rumble overhead -- many Thursday evenings.

    sorry I kind of cast a pall on this thread -- I'd put Mr. Grand & Mr. @lightman1 in the upper strata of the pantheon of Polk Forum Folk.

    Russ, keep the shiny side up and the dirty side down, as we used to say on the CB radio :)

    Russ is special people for sure, in a short bus kind of way. :p

    He *is* the poopiest Russ in the world.

    Well without Russ.....

    -I wouldn't have 3 dedicated circuit
    -I wouldn't have had a month or so to listen to some BOSS tube monoblocks
    -I wouldn't have gone to LSAF
    -I wouldn't have my kids bugging me about where is "Mzzzr Russ", and "Where does he live".... and finally "Where does his kids live"
    -I would have living bushes
    -I would have more beer in my fridge
    -I would have one less audio enabler around.....

    Dunno, looks like his positives outweigh his negatives :grin: ...
