    I am home sick today, and for some reason I feel the need to share this...

    I have some bizarre habits when it comes to volume knobs. If there is a strange smell in the car, I never fail to turn the volume down on the stereo. If I go for a walk with my walkman, and light a cigarette, I turn the volume down as well. And the creme de la creme===>if I pick up one of my electric guitars and play it as is, UNPLUGGED, I constantly check to make sure my volume and tone knobs are UP, even though of course this MAKES NO DIFFERENCE!!! Should I be checking into the loony bin, or do others out there have similar quirks to these?

    Sitting here with nothing good on TV, I have time to ponder these things. Kinda like the time in Peanuts when Linus became consciously aware of his tongue and it freaked him out. When he told Lucy about it, it drove her monkeybats as well.

    Maybe I need Glenn's crack pipe??

    Whew...at least I'm not alone in that!

    By the way, have any of you realized that since his signing up, Glenn has made approximately 17.3 posts a day?!?!?!

    If my fever goes up any higher, I may just figure out a way to actually only make 3/10ths of a post.

    Down In Flames is posting a whopping 28.5 times a day. That's 1.185 posts per hour, or 0.01975 posts per minute.

    Didn't use a calculator either.

    Oh my god: I'M A GEEK!!!!

    If posts only equaled $$$ then they might mean something to me.

    As it stands, they don't.

    I don't ever want to pass Glenn in the post count.

    Bad precedent.

    The day that the dumbest jerk on the boards has more posts than the human equivalent to the VH Encyclopedia will be a sad day in the land of the links.

    To be honest, Glenn writes posts. I crack one-liners.

    There is a difference, and I'm aware of it (as is anyone else who's read our stuff. ).

    Damn, Abe is taking that Calculator nickname to new heights.

    And I'm a little miffed that DIF is trying to lay claim to being the "dumbest jerk" at Links. I strongly believe that the vote is still out on that; and I've got a speech ready to go.

    Man, I thought I was the only one who did that. I have a good mind to super glue all the tone knobs at 10 so I don't have to worry about it.

    It had better be a concession speech, Glenn.

    It has been made known to me, via Mr. Cochran, that I am ahead in both the machine and manual recounts.

    (Although, in the end, dimpled chads may be my undoing... LOL.)

    I play the piano, but one time, I borrowed a really badass keyboard synthesizer and played it every damn day for, like, a summer. I loved that thing. I wrote and recorded lots of shit with it. I would mess around with all the knobs, buttons, and faders on the thing while I was playing.

    Then I had to give the keyboard back, and for months after that, every time I sat down at a regular piano, I was ALWAYS reaching for the knobs, dials, and faders that didn't exist. I also tried to plug headphones into a piano more than once, and when I got done playing I would reach to turn the piano off! I still do that sometimes.
