My New CB Analogy (in General)
March 11 2007 9:12 PM EDT
CB is a bit like golf i guess. You see, it takes practice to learn how to play correctly, but it takes time and money to get good.(learning the game) You have to pay membership in a golf club, which is somewhat exclusive because you have to pay in a way which some may not wish to. (paying USD for supportership) But in order to get into the worldwide rankings of golf, you have to spend money (USD) or train for a very very very long time. Getting a trainer helps too (NCB/NUB).
then they go and change the golf balls so your club is worthless ;)

mmm they make it different shapes sometimes too... and don't even get me started on the wind!
or how about they make the length of your driver 24 inches shorter so you can barely swing it? ;)
CB is really like a box of chocolates ... you never know when that delicious creme-filled piece that is your favorite will get nerfed into a chocolate-covered caterpillar.

Or how they make your golf club have about 40% less damage and give it the ability to cut through 10% of defense? Whoops. Was I being too literal?
you could say it makes the ball fly about 40% shorter, but helps you get though the 2 or 3 bushes on the entire huge course ;)

No, they've just fixed your club so it's perfect for the par 7 holes.
they make a club that goes through bushes? where do they sell this wonderful thing?

Your golf ball goes 60% the original distance, but goes straight through trees 50% of the time. Not a bad deal.

I think that they deadened the ball, meaning that your driver just became your putter.
Now you have to use your cannon to hit that ball with enough power to get across the grass

Then sometimes you catch some crazy drunks fooling around (or just sleeping) on the green.
no it just means that someone can hit the ball with all they're strength, the hole will just evade the ball for the first three shots
How about this, a new driver comes out of the tour, it's more popular than white balls, some folks point out as loudly as they can that it's not quite as fair as it should be, as this new driver works great in nearly every situation. Time passes, it continues to become apparent that not only is this the case, but that it's really a better choice for any situation than any other club. It's unceremoniously banned from professional use.
Be happy they didn't just go poof, cause if I actually had gotten my way they'd have been nuked from orbit...

And just as the best golfer is about to hit a hole in one, the crowd blow raspberries very loudly.

Waah, waah, waah... whining, moaning, griping...
My analogy - CB is like cigarettes, fairly expensive, too much of either makes you unhealthy, I have the urge to do both frequently... But they both make me feel like I guess I can have something to look forward to in half an hour or so... And there are worse things... much worse... (i.e. WoW and Smack)

Smack is slang for an illegal substance that rhymes with Heroine.

I'm pretty sure we can say the actual name in just saying what it is. I see no harm in that. But, thanks for the definition.
