So when do your stickers arrive and have you already fashioned a foil hat??? :lol:

There was a semi-serious study done some years ago by a couple of MIT students that showed wearing a tin-foil hat would actually make you more susceptible to radio waves.

Instant gratification is actually pretty good. It's fast as well.

That happened to me as well! It may be a Spanish scanners thing :lol:

In the scanner screen (the guy showed it to me afterwards), the pedal appeared by a piece of cheese I was carrying. Cheese color in the scanner is close to plastic explosive color, and it came with a little box full of cables... I really dont blame the guy :lol:

Nowadays of course they'd ignore the wires and haul you off for importing cheese... ;)

You don't need reverb, just stack two EQs together with a really long cable

Now they probably just want to grab as much duty and taxes that they can.
