    On local Craigslist, guy decided this would put a hesitant buyer over the top:

    I gotta admit, that's one use for the commode that I hadn't thought of before.

    Maybe the seller owns one of these and therefore doesn't have the same degree of sensitivity to the object.

    wow, such a nice looking guitar also, don't know what this guy is thinking, maybe he is one of these Gibson Guitar Company bashers you see online, otherwise have no idea why he would do this

    It’s like a $6,000 guitar so I don’t think he’s a knee jerk Gibson hater. I guess he just doesn’t care if his guitar gets cooties.

    What are "cooties" please? Not heard that word in the UK. Do they hurt?

    When you are around 12 years old in the USA, cooties are the worst thing you can ever imagine. Nobody is quite sure what they are but you can get them from dumb girls (as Logan said) or if you are a girl you can get them from stupid boys, and either sex can get them from anything else they consider gross somehow.

    I strongly suspected this. :D Thanks for confirming. Here is yet another fine example of the internet spreading knowledge and understanding between nations.......

    Returning (slightly) to the original topic, I used to admire the Music Man Stingray bass. When it first appeared, Leo Fender said that when he designed it, he saw it as an modernising update to the Precision bass. I tried a few with a view to getting one.

    However, someone then pointed out it resembles a bog seat (john seat in US English??):

    I saw it, now I can't unsee it!

    Don't want one anymore.

    Sort of like a Clownburst LP.

    Makes me cringe! Id be more worried about stray fecal bacteria at that point. F*ck that. Id bleach it. Cooties be damned I'm against the real gross things. If you were to ask me 10 years ago, I'd assume cooties was slang for an STD.


    I advocate for compost toilets, more sustainable in the grand scheme of things if used properly- rather than the insane waste system we have right now.
