    The gym was playing some really bad techno today.
    There may be good techno somewhere, but this was NOT it.

    Me: Do you know what song this is, and who produced it?

    Gym Desk Guy: No..., but I can tell you the station and you can look it up.

    Me: Cool - I have a computer that sounds *just like this song* when it crashes. I could record it and sell it to whoever produced this record and get rich.

    Gym Desk Guy: Here's the name of the radio station, you can google it and find their playlist....

  2. I waste good sarcasm all the time. Here.

    I actually really like techno
  4. I used to be a huge techno fan. Back in the days that I had a massive stereo in my car. I still enjoy it from time to time.

  8. Normally, Mark, I'd take high offense to your opinion on principle alone and launch into a personal attack of 5 year old proportions. I just bought a blimp, however, and my recent formation of BLimp Owners Worldwide (a multinational spinoff of Just Owners of Blimps) has me in high spirits (that's airship humor). In light of these recent strides in my world of material possessions, I forgive you. Money can buy happiness.

    ...especially when one refuses to use emoticons.

    The MTV of written language.

    I hate it when my sarcasm is either too subtle and people believe me, or their just too thick to notice and I end up looking like a dumb***.

    Other Person: Oh it's... *manes band/group*

    You: Yeah, you ought to let them handle that one...

    I remember telling my son that I didn't object to his listening to techno, I just objected to his listening to BAD techno. He objected to my opinion until one morning he suddenly turned his attitude around completely. It was some time later when he confessed to WHY he had changed his mind. He was listening to one of his techno CD's while doing his homework, and suddenly realized that he had bee listening to the same song for over an hour. Since it was a three and a half minute song the fact that he had not noticed the point in the song where the CD hung and repeated the phrase meant that the song sounded the same as the mistake.

    After that he actually listened to my recommendations for a while.

    I'm not a very sarcastic person. When I post, I like to think that the great amount of thought that I put into it is beneficial to all of mankind and that someday my posts might bring world peace. I'm a pretty humble guy who doesn't like to rock the boat very much. One day I'll be better than Jesus.

    It's why it's so popular among witless, young teens. instead of being funny, you can pretend to be funny by playing opposite day.

    Scatological humor is the lowest form of wit.
    Sarcasm may be a close second, but it has its places.

    Maki, your humility and absence of boat-rockership are nearly legendary in some circles.

    Scatological humor is far from the lowest form.

    Mockery and name calling are lower.

    But the lowest of all is punnery.
  20. Seriously? Even below this thread about chest hair and manliness? http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=407858

    I took an informal poll consisting of Thinking Humans, Bottlenose Dolphins and Lower Primates with a rudimentary understanding of ASL...they all disagree with you.
