    I was eating rice, raisins and soymilk when I watched the Dutch tribute
    by Shug.
    I will now be cleaning my keyboard for the rest of the day.....

    HYOH dude.. i think most find aesthetic (read: semi-shiny, cool-looking/unique design made of ultra-lightweight metal) and functional (read: quick, simple connect/disconnect and tightening of various rope) value in Dutchware. It's a like to have, not a need to have. I have fun playing with knots and bling..

    I'm one of those guys . . .like watches, knives, flashlights, knick-knacks & gadgets. Typically I go for the "details." Something about intricacy and tiny details that flip my switches. On the other hand, I also really like titanium, items that are overtly functional and utilitarian. I don't understand it all My father has a little bit of OCD about him . . . among other things. Perhaps, he has passed on a little of the "bad" with a lot of the good!

    Or next thing you know, you'll look like the guy below and someone will have to make a voyage to toss your Precious Dutch Bling in to a Volcano! (Shameless Lord of the Rings reference)

    BEWARE ... be warned ... there's more to Dutch's Titanium than just the Titanium!



    WARNING: Will discuss Rhurbarb Strawberry Pie and Livermush at random.

    Hooked. If you can resist, so be it.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I have what's called buyer's resistance. It is strong and cannot be wavered.
