Except for the tiny fact that I haven't smoked pot in years, though sometimes my HE-500s + Lyr + certain tubes make me want to seek out the local high schooler ;)  Now, go get the right guy!  He shouldn't be hard to catch.  He'll be the one moving really sloooooooooooow :D

Lmfao, hey, at least I'm a 17 year old in COLLEGE. Face full of munchies and eyes drifting off. Body full of euphoria. Oh now you guys want me to go smoke...but I want to cut back a little :P

Dunno about making Beats better, but I'm quite sure they can measure the change in speed and spin of electrons traveling down silver, SPC, and pure copper cables.  Or was that the acid?  Maybe the 'shrooms.  Either way, they can see it (Stan the), man.

Right on.  Only a community college in these parts, and I think the HSers probably are better connected.

Stop saying schiit.  You're tempting me, you bad, bad man, you ;)

Well, smoke it if you've got it.

What are you studying?  I suppose it's early to select a discipline.  Engineering?  Electrical + Audio?  I expect to be demoing your first cans in about 7 or 8 years.  Yeah, you should start weening yourself now ;)

lol naw, it's leaning toward computer science (software engineering) but might end up being electrical engineering.

The electrical stuff is definitely more fun than software engineering, but nowadays most of the action is on the software side. I've basically have had jobs in all three fields. If you do electronic engineering you'll have enough of a programming background to make the transition to software engineering if you ever need to.

That's what my cousin told me. To do ee then get a minor in cs. However, I already have a very good connection for cs, leaning me more toward that. He's letting me know what I need to do to get an internship and he's had (I think) over 7 already o.o. He's working for Facebook now and got a tesla totl model in his 20s along with 100k salary and 100k worth of fb stock... I trust his judgement haha.

He will be out of a job soon. MySpace is getting back :tongue_smile:

I was wondering, are there any stores in NYC where I can demo any of the Hifiman cans?

I started out as an EE, designing Audio (Electronic Music Synths - the Analog Computer type), then process control systems, right down to discrete A/D converters. Then moved to mostly Computer Science. My favorite place was at Bell Laboratories back when it as the place to be, which it is no longer. I wrote a Real TIme OS with multiprocessors, that was a gas. The person that wrote the first Intra Processor  communications didn't use the hardware since he didn't understand it. I rewrote that using the DMA and Interrupt controllers which improved the performance, a night and day difference to his slow CPU based memory transfer/copying and polling techniques, fech.

In the USA the demand and pay for EE's isn't like it used to be. Software on the other hand is high in demand and pays well. Most software development is boring, occasionally I get something really interesting to do. Right now I'm calculating a huge amount of numbers on a Grid using Map/Reduce with 128 CPU cores, still boring.
