You could use EM effective microorganisms to get the pads like new. A friend of mine had an oil tank in his backyard underground. As he switched his heater to gas he needed to find a new purpose for the tank. He filled it up with a EM mixture and waited some time. The he could use that mixture to water his backyard without any hint of oil stink. Now he uses the totally clean tank as a rain water reservoir.
EM is from Japan and is also used to revive farmland that has been overused for decades.

Hey mrscotchguy. How would you say the experience of drinking (and getting drunk), while listening to music is? How many drinks is in your opinion the "sweet spot" for listening to music? I've actually found myself to really hate the low-fi sound when I'm drunk. I find the piercing trebles to be more annoying than when sober.

Didn't read the entire stream but the story is quite entertaining and my suggests Febreze spray

Waitaminute! You make me sound like a lush! eek.gif oh.. Wait beerchug.gif

I cannot comment on how sound is processed through the brain when inebriated, though I can tell you that my smell, or maybe just my judgement goes out the window! I hate to soil any images of myself, but I don't really drink as much as you'd think. I know, bummer. Generally, I like to play it off that this hobby of mine is just a cover to get hammered while being labeled a connoisseur... My customers love to think that I am drunk all the time, maybe to feel better about how much they spend on whisky. Not sure, but in the end, I will tell you what I tell them. Enjoy yourself! You're the one spending money, so enjoy it your way!

This may be blasphemous to you, but my current choice of poison:

 

3 oz. Jack Daniels Honey

9 oz. ginger ale

1/2 oz. lime juice

 

So smooth and puts me in the right place to enjoy music :)

Mine is Scotch in a glass... 

 

What kind of Scotch? Whatever is on offer at my local supermarket ha

 

(I have Jack at christmas as a treat!)

Nah, that's not bad... Trust me, I see much worse. Actually, substitute the ginger ale for Ginger Beer and you have a take on the Moscow Mule... Truth be told, that's very is very similar to my favorite drink the Maimie Taylor:

1 part Ardbeg (or other smokey Scotch of Choice)
3 Parts Ginger Beer (**** N' Bull, Barrets, or other spicy option)
1/2 part fresh squeezed lime

Serve "Up" in a Collins glass with a lime twist

The Maime Taylor originated in 1899, named after the famous opera singer. The Moscow Mule wasn't invented until the 1940s in Hollywood. Add a copper mug, you have a Mule... Names flow easy after a drink or two::

Bee Sting
Honey Mule
Tennessee Mule
Donkey's Kick
Ass Stinger
The Democratic Buzz

I find that the taste of Coke (the legal kind!) complements the flavour and aroma of whiskey well. Ginger ale is too sweet and takes away from the flavour of the whiskey IMO.

Be sure to try Ginger Beer then, it's a whole different beast. The heat from the real ginger makes all the difference. Ginger ale is like riding a bike with training wheels, Ginger Beer is like cruizing on a motorcycle!

Ginger Beer Brands I recommend:
**** N' Bull
Gosling
Barrets
Soiux City
Fever Tree

Thanks, I'll be sure to try it.

 

I had a really good whiskey drink at this unknown place downtown... under ingredients they had "???" so I guess it's a secret recipe lol. I also had a jacked up (extra shot) Lynchburg once - it was pretty good, if a little sour.

I like the sour component in a quality drink. I feel like the American (North American?) palate has been coerced to fixate on overly sweet flavors -- not dissimilar to the "Beats Effect" with overbloated bass. Once you break away from high-fructose concentrated beverages, handmade ingredients become necessary. That's a whole other topic, but using ingredients to create a balanced ratio of acid-to-sweet is truly an art form that makes or breaks a "craft cocktail"!

So I am speechless... I know, hard to believe! Justin from Sennheiser shipped me out a new HD800 box... well, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words:






I don't know what else to say besides Justin, Sennheiser -- YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

They did not have to go so above and beyond for me! Originally, I just called in to see if I could purchase a new box, and Justin was kind enough to offer a trade for my stinky old box, for his new one. I was not expecting anything this amazing. Thank you! smily_headphones1.gif

Should I use the air freshener in the old box before I send it back? Or leave them the nasties? evil_smiley.gif This might become the "office incentive"; do your job or else... THE BOX!
