GAS and carrots?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Bryan Hassing, Mar 29, 2002.

  1. Hello: Although far from being the most pressing issues on my mind, could someone here describe the acronym "GAS" that I keep seeing on this board? Also, there seem to be an inordinate number of references to carrots on a bulletin board devoted to bass playing. I miss the connection. Could someone elaborate? Thanks

    GAS stands for G ear A quisition S yndrome. Its basically the want/need/disire to get bigger and better stuff (sometimes not even that, just the disire to get different stuff). I don't know the carrot thing, I don't think I've seen it used, unless its the whole dangling a carrot in front of a horse.

    As far as i can tell by the search i just did, carrots date back to July 21 when somebody did a poll and one of the options was...i like carrots...so there we go...:rolleyes:

    yeah, it's just 'cuz we're a bunch of weirdos.

    (i remember the first carrot poll, but i can't remember what it was about)

    from then onwards, most polls have something related to carrots as an option.

    in conclusion, polls are lame.

    "I like carrots" = "I don't give a damn".
