+1.

In other news,

I'm looking for a good set of earbuds (really, anything is better than the 3 dollar pieces of junk I have now--don't use them too much) because I just got an LG enV Touch, and am going to grab a 16GB microSDHC card for it so I can put some of my music on it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know that people tend to think Scullcandy is the norm, but from the two I found on Newegg, this Sony pair has a better bass response than these this Scullcandy pair. I'd like to keep it under $35 or so.

Also, off hand, does anyone know if I'll see a difference with my enV Touch if I go with a class-6 speed microSDHC card vs. a class-2 speed?

Thanks J! Those look pretty darn good. Any personal experience with them or did they just stand out to you? (I love Senn. btw...they make quality stuff from what I've used from them).

I bought them for a friend. They seemed fine, despite the different wire lengths. That's a huge pet peeve of mine. The wire should be equidistant from the headphone port. That isn't the case here.

Glad to see you back, J. Thought we lost you there for a while.

What? No love for me!? Haha. Just kidding.

Thanks, though, J. I know that you know your audio stuff, and I couldn't find anything better than what I posted, so I think I'll probably grab those. Read a few more reviews on them on the 'net and they seem like a good bang for my buck...and I'm a cheapskate so, that's good. :-D

I'm not really into headphones. There might be better alternatives out there. I'd check with some other audio forums.

I got the vaccine. I'm still alive, well as of now anyway. One week today. No dystonia. I still lack the ability to do physics though.

Haha the name thing, it's just a funny story. I want to get a pilot's license so the name is contradictory. But like swine flu, yes it's a fact, is killing people. BUT so does an ordinary flu. Since the swine flu is not a death toll. By death toll I mean as soon as you get it, make a bucket list and die. You have a large chance of surviving, and this isn't the only story I have heard about negative effects of the vaccine. So because of these two reasons I feel the flu shot is just an unnecessary risk.

My dad got swine flu, went to work a week later. (He coulda gone back in three days but doctor's note)

same, I got both. One in each arm, I'm still alive too.

Just man up and get it. Your chances of getting Dystonia with the shot are much less then your chance of getting swine without the shot.

Eat your spinach, and quit thinking you are smarter then the doctors. You aren't.
