    what is the origin of GAS?

    I mean, i know the feeling, but why GAS.

    Is it G.A.S.? And if so, what does it stand for?

    I need to compile a bass slang dictionary with definitions er something.

    thx,
    lp

    It comes from the simple philosophy:

    I prefer, "He who dies with the most toys, is still dead."
