Should we care if a piece of equipment comes from a pet-free, kid-free, smoke-free home?


I agree that I do not want a preamp or speaker coated with a film of smoke, but I am confused as to what a child or pet could do that would not be otherwise visible. You would see the cat scratches on the speaker grill, the dog chew marks on the rack, the iguana turds in the amplifier cooling vents. And what's a little dog hair among friends? As a 3 year old, I supposedly put my finger through my grandfather's new DIY speaker but I'm pretty sure he replaced the drivers so even that doesn't really matter. Most things will be visible and/or easily remedied.  Maybe the price will even be a little lower because of the cosmetics. If it doesn't mess with function, not a big deal to me.

What concerns me more is does it come from a drunk-free, drug-free home.  I think befuddled owners are far more worrisome than pets or children.

LOL!  I don't think it was autobiographical . . .

      I was thinking more along the line of a blanket expose' of ALL porn stars.

      Don't think they just shoot that doo-doo they do, for poo-poo, do you?

I heard it was about another notorious capitalist.

          UH.... Adam Smith?

          No, wait... Bill Gates?

        Oh, hell... they probably both had the occasional ho' sign an NDA too.

Ha ha! A couple of good guesses, but it was the captialist with tiny hands that she had an affair with back in ’06.

                                             OH,,, #45?

      You DO realize: he's a rather large individual, which may make his hands appear smaller.     After all, were all things relatively sized...but then again:

LOL!  Well, you know what "Little Marco" said about his hand size . . . but don't take his word--Stormy has made some comments about that also.
