    The Pet Peeve Thread

    I hear ya. to make things worse, it's usually songs with vocals that get stuck in my head, but I seem to greatly prefer listening to instrumental stuff lately, and that doesn't do as good a job of exterminating the earworms.

    inexplicably trimming 9 of my 10 finger-/thumbnails. I wouldn't say I do it a lot, but I've done it more than a few times.

    Hey Guitar Guys!

    if you live in a single-family house, you might try shutting off all the breakers except the one that leads to your amp's outlet and then make sure nothing else is plugged into that circuit. if there are multiple meters, like if you have a separate one for a water heater or something, it might not hurt to shut off the main breakers for those other breaker boxes. that should rule out local electrical interference, leaving you with RF and the guitar. do you have (or can you borrow) other guitars or other amps? if so, try different combinations of amp and guitar and see whether the issue goes away.

    Hey Guitar Guys!

    is this with effects pedals or without? if with, do you use batteries or DC adapters?

    I regard it more as a hopeful wish rather than actual advice.

    CNN is now calling Wisconsin for Evers.

    2018 Midterm Elections

    yeah, there are 4-5 counties that aren't all in yet per CNN, most of them red but small. but I'm having a hard time seeing Walker pull it out.

    2018 Midterm Elections

    CNN now has Hurd ahead by not even 700 votes with 100% reporting. too bad, would have loved to see the reversal. edit: though, duh, as tight as that is, I'd have to think there'd be a recount, at least if that's truly 100%.

    The Marijuana Issue.

    yeah, I use an edible labeled as 2:1 CBD-to-THC as a sleep aid on occasion. I get only slightly buzzed, but it's enough to make me really sleepy. plain CBD doesn't do that.

    The Marijuana Issue.

    some days it seems like I can't get away from it. moreso downtown than in my neighborhood, I think, but if I walk from my house to the store along the nearby "main" drag, there are some apartments that seem odor-prone.

    The Marijuana Issue.

    say what? yeah, the homelessness is terrible, and I never hear anything about our esteemed municipal leaders wanting to do anything about it, or at least anything practical.

    An Insidious Trend

    I wasn't aware the proprietor could see the tip amount after the customer signs the thing. seems like it disappears from the screen in my experience, but I don't get tabletted often enough to remember. do you know/remember if it was Square or some other system? (not addressing you specifically...) I nearly always pay cash for takeout/food carts. so even when the order gets entered on a tablet, I don't have to touch it. on the rare occasion when I end up having to use a card, I just bite the bullet and tip 15% as my penalty for not having cash. if it's someplace I regularly go, I probably tip a buck every time anyway, and a little extra support for a place I like having around doesn't bother me. if I didn't like the tip options and had a buck on my, I'd probably pick no tip on the tablet and immediately drop a buck in the jar. I also would prefer to be in the habit of not tipping at food carts until I get my food, but most places always get it right for me, so I usually just do it when I pay. agree with Shelton, the lack of option for custom tip is lame. don't think I've ever seen that.
