i must beat you then eh? bother, it is tiring trying to be cool. that i why i quit in secondary school and instead majored in being thrown down the stairs. (spent grade 9-10.5) in usa private school before moving to canada and they did not like skateboarders there... not at all, still have the marks...

that said, i will post more. how glad i am that i did not mention that i liked headphones to those same basketball/american football jocks... that would have burned the house down.

hehe

And after all that? he never did make a dent in that Coolmeter. yeah, i'm talkin' 'bout YOU, 1911! how dare you sell those HHF-1s!!!!

ahem. well, what i'm trying to say is it's a marathon, not a sprint. just enjoy listening to music for, say, the rest of your life, and post here because you like listening to music on headphones, and eventually you'll know everyone and everything here and vice versa - the internet may be endless, but head-fi isn't.

4) get a cool catchphrase like "aaaaaaaaaaaaay" or "sit on it"
5) water-ski jump over a shark

i wouldnt really call it a firesale..i just choose to pursue hobbies that i will spend time with...that said,,if you can afford it as i could then what is the problem with buying all the cans that i did and then reversing direction when it no longer entertains? it was a fun ride and i have nothing but fond memories..i live my live in sprints...

To be particularly cool be hot. To learn how to be hot to be cool, read Paris Hilton's book. She must know what's hot. She says so all the time. For Sure. Like Really, You Know?

Pm@c, your digging a hole for yourself my young friend.

Please stop getting aggravated with comments directed towards you.

I don't care who made the suggestion/comment or what intentions lie underneath it, just grow up and stop making fits.

Your just making a bad name for yourself on here, and you wouldn't want that would you?

And there is no need to change your name, would you change your name everytime if someone said wrongful things to/about you in the real world?

I'm not trying to attack you, I'm just trying to make suggestions to help you better improve your browsing experience on this forum.

Suggestion 1
Google "how to be cool" and then put all seach results into prcatice - yes all 143,000,000 pages worth.

Suggestion 2
Impersonate Fonzi and everything he did on Happy Days (jump a shark while on water skis!!!).

Suggestion 3
Or simply be cool by not worrying about being cool.

Hey, thanks for the apology

After reading the other thread and why supposedly you were so jumpy insulting me for no valid reason in this thread, and also after realizing that you are not a little kid but a 19-year old, well I must say I have changed my mind, I stopped thinking that you are a real jerk, seriously.

...and here i always though that typing in just common case (no caps), was just a simple act of laziness

With this knowledge I have surely climbed one more plateau in my never-ending quest for total and complete coolness.

One warning for those who have made it...it's lonely at the top, and there's nowhere to go, but down. Look at Robert Blake and Phil Spector.

for some of us spending lots of time at a keyboard and doing many cap shift strokes can produce a tendonitis or something vaguely akin to carpal tunnel syndrome. lack of routine capitalization can be a form of discomfort control.

*&^%$#@!! This thread is still going?! Did not someone say earlier that we are GEEKS here, and that we therefore can not be cool?? I am not cool, and no amount of can make it so.
