A wise man once said: "Googolplex would be the numerical equivalent of a bodybuilder who OD'd on steroids and exploded."
More silly quotes:
Penisaur: Elton John once said that his music is symphonic tech. death with a tinge of grind elements. I was gonna argue that statement with him but since HE said that's what it is, then he must be correct.
ntchode: reported? imdeth your crotch can destroy suns, why not hot teachers?
MattCbassist: you do realize that if you blend Carvin,Ibanez and ESP......we will all die as it says in the holy book.
MatrixClaw: It's a good thing I like boobs or I'd be more pissed that you just bumped a 2 week old thread for that :facepalm:
severed-metal: You'd rather have black stool than a hangover.
I think your priorities need to be sorted.
webbtje: It's not that the existence of this thread offends us, it's just that you can have half a dozen new orifices torn into you without having to clutter up the forum.
What does offend us is taking the Lord's name in vain. He saved you, you know. He saved us all.
littlephil: I've officially lost all faith in Batman.
There was a Batman cartoon on TV, he was soldering a board from one of his Batvehicles.
On the component side of the board.
Right in the middle of a trace.
Where there was no components.
Schism1985: When a guitar becomes so metal that it's neck can no longer handle the brutalness, the guitar sheds 2 frets as an offering to Shiva, the Hindu god of war.
Julia: Lynch uses different stuff now. He's still chasing tone. He hasn't realized that no matter what he plays he's still going to sound like George Lynch.
Tone Deaf: Nono, there's a difference in a girl, and in a bitchy dramatic girl. Girls are your friends/lovers/whatever. Bitchy dramatic girls are pimp-hand fodder. Just like guys are your friends, but arrogant guys who think they own the place, are pimp-hand fodder.
