I thought you guys might be interested in trying out a free Tweak[SUP]TM[/SUP] that I have become aware of to help increase your enjoyment of Talkbass. I found it works best in OT, but in 1000's of blind tests it has also been shown to have positive results in the Technique and Miscellaneous forums. Basically what the involves in manipulating informational fields. There is a specific area of the brain that, although not testable through normal "science", one or two people have researched and concluded that it can affect TB enjoyment. They call this the "PacZone". By maninpulating the "PacZone", its been shown that TB enjoyment can be increased. So, here's the free test. Now, I know you are probably skeptical, but try this out and see how it works. Feel free to post back the results to let others know how it went. 1. DOwnload and print out the following picture: 2. Tape the picture on the side of your monitor. 3. Post in TB OT and see how you feel. Okay, we shall call that the "base state" of the PacZone. 4. Take the picture off your monitor and put it in the freezer. 5. Take the picture our of the freezer and put in the microwave (now don't turn it on, just put it in there). 6. Take the picture out of the mircrowave and draw a mustache on the guy on the right hand side of the picture. 7. Put the picture back up on the side of your monitor. 8. Post in TB OT and see how you feel. Now, what you have done is manipulated the PacZone and moved from the base state to a higher state. You should feel increased enjoyment in your OT postings. Now, this isn't something that can be measured by "science" (but who cares about that right). The important thing is that, subjectively, you are having more fun. Feel free to share other tips for enjoying TB more in this thread. BTW, if anyone is interested I can show you where you can purchase some tips for increasing enjoyment in other areas of TB by manipulating the "Turner Region", the "Metal Place" and the "Fuqua Patch", but this stuff is proprietary so I can't just give it away.
