Repeated Bose bashing threads - uncool

Excessive product bashing or glowing praise without an explanation why you feel that way - uncool.

Tell others what they are hearing - uncool

Poor grammar, punctuation or excessive slang use - uncool

Take anything written in this forum personally - uncool

Sell something won from a Head-Fi give-away contest - uncool

Wearing headphones backwards - uncool

The second you asked "how to be cool", you're not cool already.

You should start giving away free stuff. The more high end the stuff you give, the cooler you are.

1. Use acronyms

2. Put lots and of info in your sig and color code each line

3. Be sure to maximize smiley usage

4. Think of some innovative or unique application or modification of an everyday household item, then post pictures so everyone can marvel at your creativity and pledge to "try something like that" themselves

5. Make lots of jokes about your wallet

6. Start a thread about one of your other hobbies that is titled "<insert hobby>-fi"

7. Be sure to discuss your own problems either here or at home so you don't read about other members recent achievements and accolades and become jealous, which leads to you becoming frustrated because you someday hope to be one of those people. But you of course realize that you must improve your work ethic before such rewards will prevent themselves. This is of course a realization that you have long since accepted but that doesnt stop your parents from repeatedly reminding you that you can do better. This will get bottled up and eventually pressure the cork to pop right off the fragile bottle of emotional stability you try so hard to contain, and you will end up projectile vomiting all of your emotions onto an unsuspecting and good humored thread. This is a fun loving community and outbursts of frustration due to your meddling parents and their nitpicking is uncomfortable for all of us here...

...even though said parents can be annoying at times

To the OP, I couldn't tell you. I'm about as cool as a zitty four-eyed nerdy kid dishing up burgers at McDonalds.... while listening to a Zune with Bose earbuds and a pocket protector.

I think the people with good cameras/good photography skills that post pictures of gear are cool.

Everyone likes to see some good pictures.

Also, the first people to do a mod are cool. Kramer comes to mind.

So if you mod stuff and take pictures of it then you are epitome of coolness.




Not cool: recommending equipment you have never heard. This happens WAY TOO MUCH. I have probably done it a few times, but I really try not to.

just don't follow the ways of those who make thousands of inane polls and threads on completely unrelated subjects.



and create in yourself a mix of kirosia and duggeh.

ive started at least 4 or 5 silly threads already, a count of one per month; i feel like a slob. my operand for not using caps is that i am not cool enough yet. once i hit 500, i shall use caps for people's names etc as then i can at least say that my 500 is for you. then, when i hit 1000, common initial capitals will come out to play and if ever i reach the level of most of the cool posters in this thread, i shall even capitalise the very terse little letter 'i'. cheers again (is he having a laugh?)
