How about you get up in the middle of a song on one of your favorite DVDs to use the bathroom, come back, and go back to the bathroom in the middle of the same song.LOL

I was a lonely 15 year old once, then I went outside and ... well, went to university and became a poor 19 year old prog/beer addict.

# Whatever: When the 'Progressive Rock' genre section on your iPod is bigger than the general 'Rock' section. Or if you have all the subgenres as separate sections... and Zehul has more bands in it than... I dunno, Blues. :P
