This is basically my retirement plan. I'm going to just get a bunch of rocks and spraypaint them all orange. Then I'm going to have some "expert" come out and write articles in a bunch of music blogs. He'll write something like, "place a GreenAdder-brand orange rock on top of each piece of equipment. It gets rid of audio thetans."

Since audiophiles will pretty much buy anything as long as it's expensive and has a bunch of woo attached to it, I should have a few million dollars in no time.

Just as my orange rock supply is getting depleted, I'll pay my "expert" to reach out to the blogs again. "Orange rocks are still worthwhile," he'll write, "but the new GreenAdder-brand red pinecones are the newest in warding off equalization chupacabras."

Using a CD-ROM drive for playing CDs, the "Halo CD 1″ sucks in the CD's contents at 4x normal speed, giving its CPU time to detect and eliminate disc errors before outputting near-perfect audio.

Oh great, now teh CDs will sound even more sterile and unnatural.  Call me when they make a Lunix $10,000 turntable.  Real audiophiles need the warmth of vinyl.

Bucky Katt: sandbar67: What's a "CD"?

Certificate of deposit.  It's a form of savings account.  You can get one at any bank.


The shoebox under my bed pays more interest than the CD rate at my bank.
