    Simple question:

    What does GAS mean? Is it a real acronym or just something funny to say when you want something REALLY bad?

    Well, this applies to either definition.. I have really bad GAS for Conklin's new Rocco signature. It's not even out yet, is this healthy???

    GAS = Gear Acquisition Syndrome.

    A terrible disease suffered to varying extent by all. I have a chronic case!!

    Don't feel too bad, Mark. I was a member here for about a year until I figured out what GAS was (and diagnosed myself with).
    However, I'm still trying to figure out whats up with carrots! Can someone help me out? :confused:

    The carrot option you see on polls is there for those who just don't give a rip about what's being discussed.

    ;)

    While there is no known cure for GAS, there are a couple of things that can minimize the effects of it...

    Prescription for GAS

    1. Wife.

    Take one. If that doesn't do it, you may have to take a few more (but purge your system of the previous one first).

    2. Kids.

    Take once and repeat as necessary. The more you try, your chances of overcoming GAS increases greatly!!!

    Heh, kinda like a tech forum that I visit that frequently uses "taco" just like this forum uses "carrot".
