Bad boys Bad boys, whatcha gonna do?
Eewwwwww. I had to look that up.
You know this could just overtake this thread, what with the easiness of the lame dad jokes Schiit always conjures up.
They could be:
The Toilets. We take all the Schiit.
The B-holes. If there's Schiit, it goes through us!
The Cesspools. Sometimes we have too much Schiit.
The Skidmarks. Schiit has really left a mark on us.
And on, and on, and on....
Last Christmas, I gave coprolites as stocking stuffers. Not everyone appreciated them.
You know,I have some of those, someplace...
Sometimes you just need exlax!
This whole thread could be summed up with "I thought I needed a schiit but when I got to schiit, I didn't need schiit no more".
Is that sorta like the old "paid my dime" line?
Perhaps there'll be a Schiit Exlax [sic] before too long.
(or maybe Ejggslaacks or something like that...)
Grown men making poop jokes...
Because poop is always funny!
I think that's why I can't get behind Schiit as much as I want to. Their dad-joke sense of humor reinforces my own biases towards what I think about the audiophile world. It's lame! And therefore I'm lame. By trying to distance themselves they've dug themselves and me deeper into it. I want to live under the delusion that I'm a tiny bit not a dork. I know, it's a falsehood but we all can dream.
One of lifes great disappointments is when the Schiit is not quite as good as you hoped.
That being said, you need to read the book. They may be many things, but lame they are not.
I don't know if that's actually what happened here. It's not that this unit is not as good as I hoped..it's that the problem I bought this for, worked itself out in ways that ended up being better than adding something to the signal chain.
It's quite a remarkable little device otherwise...there are many instances I could have used it in in the past. And I'm sure it'll find a place in one of my systems in the future. It's not being returned.
Guess you may not want to visit their retail store then. It is called "The Schiitr".
I kind of like the sense of humour. Kind of telling us not to take audio too seriously.
Hmm...how do I say that I appreciate the levity, if not the execution of it? I prefer more of a dry sarcasm and biting wit to, um, dad jokes.
You're not suggesting that they've dug themselves into deep doo-doo, are you?
No, I didn't think so.
I'm just going to counter with absurdities at this point. Here's a fancy alpaca.
I actually use that Alpaca's picture (or one very, very similar) in one of my glycobiology lectures, on "modern" monoclonal antibodies. It turns out that the camelids (alpacas, llamas, camels, dromedaries, and whatnot) make antibodies that are structurally simpler than normal human IgG ("immunoglobulin G") antibodies. Their antibodies have one polypeptide (protein) chain; our IgGs have two chainz. ... and there's another antibody platform, called IgNAR, that is derived from the antibody structure found in the elasmobranchs (e.g., sharks).
If my college profs had had slides like that, I might've learned something in Organic Chemistry!
Also... Alpacas are so punk.
oh, come to think of it, I also reference (in an academically responsible way, of course) my flashbulb memory of Raquel Welch being attacked by antibodies in Fantastic Voyage -- in that same lecture.
(just in case any of you folks thought that biotechnology was boring...)
