    I love you for posting this! Don't forget the help naming my band, or how to install a bad ass II bridge, or really any what's the best (fill in the blank). They make me crazy. Use the search function jabrones! :rollno:

  4. Go eat a meatball! :D Now THATS witty!! Hehe....

    I think most of those types of threads are from newer TB users, or more novice bassists, folks who are still in bass boot camp, so to speak....so I wouldnt let it bother you too much. There is a whole lot of wisdom, experience and intelligence here at TB to compensate for it.

    You forgot:

    "Are Sadowsky/other high-end basses really worth it?"


    "Avatar cabs???? (did search, no info)"


    "I don't understand the need for 6+ string basses"


    "I ate a waffle/There's a bee in my room!/I hate cheetos/I can't find my socks"... basically any Mike Money thread in OT. :D

    Oh yeah, anything involving "Cthulhu puppets" is usually pretty lame, too. People post the weirdest crap.

    Schroeder cabs
    Groove Bass amps

    Nothing at ALL against the cabs. Im sure they are great, but definitely over done. Im sure Groovebass are fine too, but dayum...it is constant.
