    The difficulty I've found with some smart people is that they get used to right most of the time and start to assume they are right all time. Its very hard to get them to listen to views and reasons of others because already know they're right. No idea what the name of that condition is....but if you know how to manage those types please let me know!
    It's called the GBC syndrome.

    No, no, no - GBCS is where a person has an uncontrollable need to react to everything he posts.

    If I was smart I could figure out what the syndrome name is that you're looking for, but 'cause I ain't I shall just call it Fred.

    My mom was a nurse for years and years. I remember asking her once what PhD stood for, without a pause she responded, "Piled Higher and Deeper".

    Fred? Fred? You have just insulted Fred. You could have just been nasty, but no, you had to go the whole hog. Fred is no longer your friend.

    Did somebody say "Fred?" (Not sure what folks here will think of this, but nothing ventured nothing gained....this is probably a fusion masterpiece of sorts for folks who like that sort of thing). A crazy beautiful Allan Holdsworth guitar solo kicks off about 3:45 into things.
