    I can't understand how people watch this stuff. The signal to noise ratio is so bad. Mostly self indulgent talking and grab-a$$ery. The other two are bad enough--as soon as I saw that German guy in there I hit stop. He's just intolerable.

    I scanned ahead. Seeing him hit in the head was fun, sort of, but it took--wow what a surprise--waaaaay too long for the payoff. Signal to noise ratio: poor

    Self-indulgence. it's a real thing, and not a good thing.

    Edit: wow sorry I appear to be cranky this morning

    I'm convinced. Where can I buy some toan wood?

    Where does toan grow? Is toan covered by CITES?

    And every piece of maple is like every other piece of maple, and every piece of ash is like every other piece of ash, and every piece of alder is like every other white guy with too much education and disposable income...

    The ToanWould tree grows in an underwater cave, its location carefully guarded by the chicken of despair.
    For aeons, the magic properties of Toan have left it vulnerable to poachers, who imbue the Toans with aspects of commercial gullibilty. Beware of fake ToanWould. It can make your hair curl at inopportune moments.

    Toan wood is pretty much used just to make this garden tool:

    Well, technically it is two words: Toan Wood. Grown in Toan Forests, located in underwater caves... just see post number 6 for the details.

    Boss is coming outwith a toan wood simulation pedal.
    Line 6 will undoubtedly follow soon after with a toan wood simulation multi effects processor the size of a sheet of plywood.

    Seriously, I can hear a difference in wood types in an acoustic, but not electric.

    I have it on excellent authority that toan plastic is being developed at this very moment by Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. And you know just as sure as night follows day, toan carbon fiber cannot be far behind.

    We live in a brave new world, people.

    I'm so far gone I actually watched 3:10 of this elaborately setup lame, weak and unfunny video.
    Oh well, as they say, have a nice day.
