    I was just reading the latest thread on paying cash for cars and realized, that for the good of humanity, we should have a consolidated thread of TGP wisdom. Please help compile this list.

    I'll start off with a few pearls.

    1) Never buy new cars; always buy a good used car.
    2) Banks are a criminal enterprise.
    3) Flu shots are for chumps.
    4) Generation (insert yours here) had the best music ever.

    Not only an excellent suggestion but your observation is certainly one of the touchstones of TGP wisdom.

    Underwear is worthless until you get in a car accident
    Your feet don't stink, it's just the bacteria farting
    a man's greatest accomplishment is how creative he can be in hiding his gear purchases from his wife

    Kemper rules and Axe Fx Ultra sucks.

    And vice versa.

    You can spill wine but club soda and table salt absolves you of staining your carpet.

    Occasionally, facts become an annoying inconvenience.

    Frogs are okay in your salad, but only at a pterodactyl viewing party.

    • If one waits long enough, the guitar/amp du jour will almost certainly wind up in an Emporium thread as a 50%-off guitar/amp du jour a few short weeks later.
    • It is ok to hate JM and JB equally.
    • SRV was nothing more than a meaningless barroom player and there are at least 276 bajillion players in my town that are better on any given night.
    • Sure your GF posed for Playboy, but there are at least 276 bajillion girls in my town that are better looking on any given night.
    • I don't get Hendrix or relic'd guitars - so neither should you.
    • Clapton sucked and what I say in a thread on TGP will likely hurt his feelings. Oh yeah, and there are 276 bajillion players in my town that are better on any given night than Clapton was when he was playing with Cream.
    • Etc.

    the tone from BOSS pedals are rubbish, unless you are a good player, because tone is in the fingers

    People who watch or played sports are all knuckleheads. Typically.

    • It's more efficient, less expensive and far more sensible to ask for legal, medical and veterinary advice here, than it is to call a lawyer, doctor or veterinarian when you need one.
    • When you are engaged in a deep Pub debate about local, regional, national or international economics, make certain you don't listen to the guys/gals on here that manage billions of dollars daily for a living.

    Smoking a cigarette makes you a filthy, degenerate hillbilly.
    Smoking a pipe or cigar makes you a witty, sophisticated gentleman.

    There's a fine line between crazy and eccentric.
