    Okay, I'm a little slow on the uptake. I know that LOL means laugh out loud, and IMHO means in my humble opinion. What does G.A.S. mean?

    LOL :p

    It took me forever to figure out what YMMV meant. I understood how it was used, but I couldn't figure out the words. (Your Miles May Vary, right?)
  6. I got these really great LOLipops, those Tootsie Pops... man, those are the best LOLipops ever...

    BTW, FWIW when I figured out YMMV I was like OMG, *** - LOL. :rolleyes:

    Edit - this thread is not about basses.

    my favorite is an oldie:


  15. you know, I've been a musician for 20 years and only heard of GAS from this forum. Before I got into bass playing, I was a keyboardist exclusively. Of course us keyboardists have a form of GAS (perhaps worse than bassists do) but I've never heard it called as such. I've heard the term "Gear Lust" used more often though.
