    one thing that we all have in common is that we think we are the better driver on the road or that we are are smarter than others.

    Apparently the new way of ruining your brain is smartphones. The old way was TV.

    I can say with some measure of confidence that the sign and associated tape (that you see in the photo) was originally hung above an older urinal with a conventional chrome pull-flush-handle.
    The old urinal was malfunctioning in some fashion, and the sign was taped above it and to it.
    "Please don't pee in this one, it's broken," was the implied message.

    Workman came in, eventually, and removed the offending urinal.

    They didn't, however, remove the sign.

    That is all.
    Not much more to say.


    This was my first thought.

    Many things that may look stupid actually have a perfectly good explanation.

    One time I was hiking with a girl I was dating, there was a vine hanging from a couple of trees, right in the middle, she asked how can a vine have climbed I such way, I said, probably there was a tree there long ago. The vine had moved on to the other trees and remained in place after the original tree was long gone.

    I feel the same way, for a long time I thought I would learn to like it. It does sound great and I play certain songs on it but now that i have another SG this one will have to go.

    I think Gibson tried to mash up 50 years of SG neck profiles into this model.

    I'm trying to downsize so ideally I'd like to trade 3 guitars for one that I really like.

    Mine's 6 years old now. The neck has advanced from being slightly different from the rest, to a little bit of trouble, to painful to use compared to the rest. It'll go this year. I love it and all, but I don't futz with painful necks.


    You too? I never liked the neck on my 50th anniversary either but for me it was since the beginning. I never warmed up to it. It is a weird carve and weird taper and cannot put my finger on what the problem is.

    Mine is too getting sold or traded.

    Hi! I saw the Fender Champ head that you've built and I think it's an amazing job you did!!! I'd like to do the same for a Victoria 518-T (copy of a Fender Champ 57) Could you provide any help? Or even, would you want to build another that I would buy from you?

    Great. Unknwon is a great act and guitarist, not a lot of people get into him on this forum though. I plan to see him every time he is in town. I have seen him 3 times now.
