I was pointing out the obvious parallel between that story and when golden-eared audio types say, "What, you can't hear how much better that sounds? Well then your rig/ears aren't good enough to tell the difference." I was pointing out that this is exactly the same thing that happens in the Emperor's story - hucksters claim that the new suit of clothes they are making for the Emperor cannot be seen by fools, and everyone plays along not wanting to be called a fool for not seeing the clothes.
Just pointing out a parallel to an old story.
I won't be freezing any cables or tubes in the near future.
Read Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Robbins, and Charles Bukowski.
