A few from my Grandpa -Raymond Emsweller (usually prefaced with 'now then...' and a wag of the index finger at you)

Perhaps these are unoriginal, but I heard them first from him so they're his in my mind, mmmk?

There aint' nothing I like better than to watch a man work

I like to look a man in the eye when he takes my money

If you want hot food, you've got to wait for them to cook it

We've et everything but the table

It's not how much money you make, it's how much you save

That henhouse is the most expensive hobby I ever had, I paid for the chickens and feed, Lucille kept the egg money

They used to give you a free hat, now you have to buy them

One day this country won't be able to afford to feed itself

I never get full, I just get tired of eating

I sure miss that guy...

"I'm almost done buying stereo gear" (Arf)

"My system is now complete"

And on a personal note. The day I left for the Marine Corps my dad gave me some good advice as we were waiting for the bus. "Shup up and don't volunteer fur nuttin", "keep your head down", and "Don't get no higher than pickin' corn nor lower than diggin 'taters boy. You'll be ok"

"Of course I love you!! (while trying desperately to remember her name...)

"Speed costs money boy! How fast yah wanna' go?"

"Hold my beer and watch this" (all time favorite in Okeechobee......)

Thebes, your doing some serious trolling with this one. Wink

I must not be the quality fisherman I thought I was because so far not even a nibble. I thought "Set is a topology not a religion" would at least bring one keeper to the surface.

Better use some fresh bait:

Expensive cables are just plain expensive.

Raising wire is wacko science.

Doubling up speakers is an abortion of distortion.

Push pull is the way to go but it does get confusing when your dating Twins.

B+ is a grade not a scientific term.

Phase is relative.

Oh what's that over there up in that tree! Why I do believe it's a Parrot!

Marty, try a couple of my favorite audio TRVTHS that are usually greeted with stony silence or kill a thread all together:

I'd rather hear a first class recording over a boom box than the bulk of commercial releases over the worlds finest system.

Vinyl's dynamic compression is as hard to live with as CD's limitations. Sometimes worse...
