Well, I didn't want to state the obvious, that I've known since about two hours after I signed up here!

But seriously, I do have an open mind, occasionally I do learn things from generally ridiculous threads like this. I am grateful to have differing opinions tossed at me, even if they are somewhat forceful at times!

It is my sincerely ridiculous hope that this be the last earbud thread ever. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going out for a ride with my buddy Van.

Personally I find it distracting, and I have encountered others who it clearly compromised their situational awareness, so its a reasonable question everyone should at least ask themselves before doing.
