I get kind of insulted sometimes when I'm on reddit and some kid has his guitar laying on the bed hitting it with sticks while turning knobs on his pedals and then talks to everyone like he's a really skilled guitarist. .but I also get that the same kid may be a genius and I'm just being a Mr Burns saying "get off my lawn"
