    GAS is a horrible, disfiguring, incurable, contagious disease that is easily picked up by direct contact with a bass guitar or amplifier. It can cause profuse sweating, tremors, inability to concentrate, and dangerously high blood pressure. Acute attacks are always accompanied by intense and painful cravings, often to the point that if someone offered you a Sadowsky in exchange for your mother, you would comply without even thinking. GAS cannot be effectively treated or cured, even though every sufferer has tried. The most common home remedy is to liberally apply one's credit card to the problem, but this usually only slows the cravings temporarily. Treatment for GAS is not covered by medical insurance, and there are no 12-step programs that I am aware of for sufferers. But remember this, sufferer; YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! While your friends, family, spouse, and collection agencies will undoubtedly look at you with scorn, remember that you are part of a family of fellow GAS victims. WE FEEL YOUR PAIN!!
