    I know I asked this recently, forgot the answer but searches turn up nothing. It's an acronym that must have shown up during my 4-5 year left hand tendinitis hiatus. I've tried all sorts of relevant word combos and NAD just isn't making any sense, even when I read the related posts.

    Thanks-

    Or the more formidable pluralized version, used contextually with "swift kick". :)

    Or my favorite :

    NTM-AD, -GD, or -PD.

    NTM= New To Me which of course means I didn't pay full price.

    What this means is some other schmo buys the Fender Excelsior for $300 plus tax new, decides he doesn't like it, puts it on CL for $200 and I buy it and take the $100 extra I would have had to spend on a new one and replace the bad stock speaker w/ a much better Eminence one.

    Those two extra letters could save you a ton of dough.

    The mighty "TM" is always in direct opposition to an impulse buy at GC or a late night drunken online MF purchase.

    Those 2 little letters are your friends and want to save YOU money.

    (Won't you let them ?)

    Thank you !




    I've had toooo much coffee...

    Which is exactly what your wife threatens when she learns about your NAD.
