Firstly, I'm not on a horse, tall or otherwise. Secondly, I'm not trying to build myself up by tearing anyone down. I'm simply making an observation and judgement based on a particular contingency. You are free to make your own observations and render your own judgements from those observations as well. The numbers I quoted are the general ranges pretty much agreed upon as the percentages of folks in the United States of America capable of engaging in varying degrees of formal operational thinking. Thirdly, if you are asking whether or not I am capable of formal operational thinking, then I'll answer you directly, yes I am. That is not based upon my opinion, but rather, based upon the results of several batteries of cognitive functioning testing I have underwent at various stages of my development.

 As far as Walkerman goes, he seems compelled to be snarky with my posts at every opportunity he can find. That's his issue. Tell me, Mr Buffet, if someone is unable to deduce blatant product placement in front of them, on a video screen, what conclusion would you draw about their ability to engage in abstract thinking?

BTW, what are you talking about, exactly? This post was about a nice looking young woman (who I, for one, have NEVER heard of) using a sunburst Larrivee as a prop and it became some kind of "I'm smarter because my mom had me tested" psycho babble,  with bad grammer ("I have underwent..." WOW) and bad spelling (ditto) thrown in just so we can wrap our arms around the premise of "Product placement" (and all this time I thought Sean Connery drove Aston Martins because they were cool. Boy, am I a dope).

Here's another one where the Larrivee makes a cameo at the beginning, then disappears:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjHf9PQDQXA&feature=channel

GA-ME is right on target:

"Plastic" is an excellent description, to go along with shallow, sexualized, pointless and pretty typical of where a lot of country music has ended up today. Watching her in those videos almost gives you the creeps, like she's a narcissistic tramp that only has one thing on her mind...

...however, I suspect you guys are just jealous that you're not that Larrivee guitar being strummed by her and pressed up against her body...

Actually, what's giving me the creeps is the last line of your post. Change that, your entire post gave me the creeps. How this video made her a "narcissitic tramp that only has one thing on her mind..." is beyond me. Unless what was on her mind was: "I wish I could play like Chet Atkins!"

 .......with bad grammer ("I have underwent..." WOW) and bad spelling (ditto)

I'm not one hundred percent certain, but I believe "have underwent", as utilized in my original sentence, is a grammatically correct present perfect tense. It is my understanding that one can use the present perfect tense to describe one's experience.   For instance, I think it would be correct to say: I have underwent multiple x-rays in my life. Any forum grammarians have a definitive answer? If it is incorrect, I'd certainly like to know why so I have a better understanding.

Edit* I think I found the answer myself. Underwent is the simple past and undergone is the past participle so undergone is needed to form a proper present perfect.

I don' t know nothing about future or past participles...but undergone sure sounds better than underwent in that sentence...

I'm getting old with you (and very married also). We got a video with a very nice looking young woman with red hair, no less, and I'm trying to figure out what model Larrivee cutaway she is almost playing.

bbblacksheep was right (above): we are beating a dead horse...

...I guess I was paying too much attention also to the LYRICS in both videos/songs, which are as lame and egocentric as all the flashes of cleavage...and I'll leave it at that. 

Not trying to ride a high horse (since, as noted, it's been beaten to death); but the first post WAS a comment about her "visuals."

Absolutely and AMEN! I never once said check out the quality playing, technique, style, lyrics.....or forum members grammer, belittling one another etc. I am not a big fan of the music, but love the guitar. I think she looks great, I expected some disagreement about the visuals, but not insults.
 
I am a relatively new member and I get the feeling there are users of this forum, who consider this their personal playground, to intimidate and show off. I come here to learn and have some fun. All too often I see threads turn into competitions. I am sure there could be many more members of the community, who would contribute their 2 cents if they weren't afraid they would be put down or insulted.

I apologize for pointing out a video featuring a "signed" recording artist and a Larrivee guitar. I didn't realize it was offensive.

  Thanks for your posts and thoughts. For my part I just didn't like the style of the video at all. I would rather see a real player. But we all are different. And you are right we do treat this place like our own playground.
               It's good to be reminded by others that we don't "own" this place.

I think that Jesse Farrell plays - she was featured as an endorser in several months of Larrivee ads, in Acoustic Guitar at least.  I find her a 'decent' singer by today's commercial standards. Otherwise, no comment rolleye

Yep this is where me and a few others spend our down time when we're not riding in our motorcycle gang and playing kitten baseball. The next thread I'm gonna start is a slideshow of my biceps.
