    ok, so I was talking to a girl I want to go out with over AIM, and I told her I play bass, so she says "gimme a minute, I need to consult with the female bible (cosmo)". So she comes back, and types in what cosmo has to say about the bass...

    so according to cosmo.. " choosing such a physically domineering instrument indicates that he probably takes charge in the bedroom. you have to be willing to relinquish control and let him work his magic."

    I couldn't stop laughing, and I hope you guys (not sure if this works for women...) will enjoy this as much as I did.

    Hey, if she's not willing to relinquish control and let me work my magic, I will gladly relinquish control and let her work her magic! Better yet, we take turns! The important thing is to get to the point where the issue comes up!
     
  5. If Cosmo is the female bible, God help us all... :rolleyes:
     
  6. Haha I actually read that article, a friend showed it to me a while back and I laughed.

    My first thought of this thread was pointed torwards Cosmo from The Fairly Oddparents.

    I think thats kinda funny, although ironic for me - I'm a bit too passive when it comes to girls...

    It sure appears to be for chicks. Not sure what grown women read.

    The most magical thing about me is that my pinky finger is double-jointed. My Jaw makes a magical "popping" noise when I open it wide.

    So, do all of us bassists have to say, "I swear that's never happened before. Trust me, it usually lasts longer. I swear!" Who's with me?

    Fellas?


    Anyone?

    Haha, I read Cosmo once on a trip with a few girls when I was out of reading material, never again! At least it's not being negative, wonder what they think of ERBs then, guess with an instrument that domineering you may as well leave your panties at the door along with your free will ladies :p. I'm so gonna run that by some of the girls I know.
