    I'm fairly new to this forum and I've noticed when someone wants something real bad they say they have "GAS" or they are GASSIN for something. What does it stand for? I thought it might be "Gui**r Acquisition Syndrome" but that can't be it. Then it would be BGAS. Just wondering............



    Maybe it's what you get when you eat lots of carrots. :eek:

    You're almost right. The G is for Gear.
     
  3. Yes, it's an expression used by those who have trouble driving cars with standard transmissions.

    Thanks guys! I didn't think of Gear. Makes sense now. I must admit I'm GASSIN for an Ampeg B2R when the budget allows. It would be the first small step to getting a decent rig.

    Thanks again...

    I thought about this post for a while before I posted it because I figured I'd get razzed about it but I've seen pretty dumb questions answered with respect and humor. That's why I keep comin' back!

    I needed a manual for a Boss Synth pedal a couple of weeks ago and a guy from Canada that posts on this board sent me his. (I'm making those copies and will send it back to you shortly ConU) Lots of good people here! :cool:
