    No, that would require some work and maybe some knowledge. What they have instead is their bank account, that's it.

    But that requires the level of non-audio expertise that I, regretfully, do not posses.

    This was enlightening to me. Apparently, I have ingested lots of bad info over the years .

    For just a couple $$ you too can purchase some nylons and practice rubbing your thighs together. How to extrapolate that into enjoyment of audio is up to you.

    @ 3:00 mark, "This is the kind of stuff you don't want to do, kill dogs owned by female attorney's" LOL!

    He does not understand octane as a higher octane rating, which is a measure of pre-detonation resistance, will not in of itself damage an internal combustion engine (though the opposite will - a fuel with too low rating for a given design will pre-detonate and possibly damage an engine). He is right in that paying for a higher octane fuel than your engine is designed for is a waste of money.

    I have an uncle who owns a small cattle operation. I wonder if I purchase the manure and created an audiophool "grounding box" with it how much I could charge...$5k? $10K?

    edit: Yikes, his solar system example has me thinking: I wonder if my $30k system was "grounded" (with a ground rod, turning it into a 'lightening rod' circuit)??...

    Are the cattle rare breeds. The more expensive the cow, the happier the electrical pixies.

    They're weird like that.

    I remember searching for Intel NUC stuff one day and randomly ended up on a circle-jerk thread in some random forum were these people were sucking each other off about how they had the secret knowledge that putting an Intel Optane SSD in NUCs was key to audio quality.

    I wish I was joking.

    So, yes, you absolutely can sell that, and you should.

    It can detonate, it can pre-ignite, but it can never, ever pre-detonate.

    You could sell it to Sausageistic Soostems to stuff their connectors with.

    Pay more attention to the presence or absence of hyphens! What you are talking about would be a small-cattle operation. A small cattle operation might refer to the surgical removal of a wart.
