    I'm a completely different breed of human being. But I still find myself crashing occasionally at the end of a long day.

    I'm a complete snob, but that's nothing to do with owning a Mac. It's more with being a middle class university-educated multi-lingual arsehole than anything else :D

    That's only because dynamicv considers American and UK English different languages. ;)

    I can beat that!

    I'm at the level of snobbery that can only be achieved through being a two-time university dropout. :p

    I thought this thread would inspire some outrage and controversy. but this total comical approach is even better, I am truly laughing my pants off right now.

    Sorry about that, I'm a snobbish mac user, what can I say? :D

    P.S. that could be wrong, depending on what you were trying to say

    I'm a multi-tiered snob. I can only listen to AAC encoded at 320kbps or higher, but only if I have my Shure headphones and are using a patch monster cable connected to my $2000 Denon receiver. But most of my library is AIFF files at 10400kbps.

    When I purchase my computers I am forced to decide if I want to wait 9 months for the newest rumored processor specs to come out and if I don't, the machine I purchase better be perfectly assembled with symmetry and battery flushness that rivals an expert cut diamond. I often return upwards of 6 Macs before I am satisfied.

    I consider Windows to be the product of a Neanderthal pooping.

    No, the nuestro is my bad (Spanish Spanish doesn't use the nosotros you see, just Colonial Spanish ;)). I can't actually write Spanish or Italian, but speaking them is far more forgiving :D :D

    Don't diss the Neanderthals. They had bigger brains than you.

    Big brains are so overrated, I mean, I use a Mac so of course I'm smarter. I am smarter than Neanderthals and all of the Australopithecus species of man. COMBINED!
    <zing>

    I bet they all used computers that were ugly and didn't match the colors of their cars. In my case its a silver Porsche, cause I use a Mac that is silver and it matches my Porsche. And I'm awesome.

    Why not Apple Lossless? Accomplish the same thing at 50 - 70% of the space.

    Cause my ears can hear a difference. Duh.
    It all has to do with the ratio of your eardrum impedance and ear canal length.

    Not to be pedantic (I can't help it, Mac-wielding snob here, remember? :D), but 'nosotros' is used in Iberian Spanish. You probably meant 'ustedes' which is usually 'vosotros' (y'all) in Spain.

    Anyway, if you try using 'vosotros' in Mexico you'll get a funny look, or a beating, depending on the region :D
