    Haha, if you read my thread, too much philosophical thinking.

    I'd rather not share mine, but let me hear your stories. :bassist:
  2. I have to read your threads

    I have a million threads in OT.

    Basically I just found out that too much philosophical thinking leads to depression.

    Too bad my personality causes me to think about everything. I'm like a perfect Psychoanalytic/Freudian mindset.
  4. No, but it seems that way.

    um... it hasn't.

    finding bass was probably the best thing that could have happened in my life.
  10. my arms/hands are 2 different shapes. ive got 6 calloused fingers and one forearm is bigger than the other. i have a wider reach on one hand. when you really take a look, it makes your body awkward.
  11. My left shoulder is noticeably lower than my right. And I prefer lighter basses....

    Ears don't hear as well as they used to.

    Spend too much time on TB instead of livin' life.

    Spend too much money on bass gear instead of payin' bills.

    ask my wallet.....
  19. I spent lots of money, but that's not a negative really. The negative is I found this forum and spend lots of time on it.
