GAS = ?

OK OK - I know this is a stupid question, but I've looked all over the site and can't find an answer.

 

What the heck does GAS stand for, is it an Acronym?

 

I know what the definition is, when you can't fight the urge to buy yet another piece of gear, but I often see it in caps and wonder what it stands for.

 

The best I can come up with is Gear Addiction Syndrome...

 

Sorry for the stupid question, but I'm one of those people that needs the background on stuff.

"Google" is a joint venture of agencies including FBI, CIA and Homeland Security. They have devised a means to track all of your web traffic, your questions, and your contacts. They are gaining access to your email and even offer services to search your computer. The government plans to analyze this information and project any problems you may cause in the future.

 

Beware, they have people planted everywhere, even on forums, to push you into giving your secrets to Google.

 

By the way, Robert is not my real name. My name is really Albert. Yes. Albert. That's it. And I really live in Texas.

Do You think Sven (Google Is Your Friend) Golly is an undercover CIA operative?? ;):D

I don't know. My contacts tell me that the agency went through some budget cuts and transferred agents from a special undercover training center. The agents were training to infiltrate the Balkan Islands while disguised as sheep.

 

I don't think there is a connection there, unless I missed something.

To alleviate the stress of GAS, I tossed my gear catalogs a long time ago in favor of the 'net.

 

The problem is that it's really tough to balance my laptop computer when I'm in my library doing my morning constitutional. :freak::D

The catalog is a little more bearable when you run out of T.P. :eek::eek::D:D
