Nything that youve tried so you can listen to music while swimming without wearing an astronaut helmet on your head?

You can't be serious?????????

Have people become so bored with every activity now, that it requires listening to music while doing it?

Are we listening to our MP3 players while fuking too?

Some people enjoy music a lot, and technology has enabled us to easily listen to music while we do other things. I'm listening to music on my iphone while I:

Walk anywhere
bike anywhere
take the bus anywhere
cut the lawn
shovel the driveway
sit around at work

etc etc etc. I love music.

SO wanting to listen to some music when you have your head down staring at the bottom of a pool for ah hour or two everyday is supposed to be some bad generational thing now?

Yes. I get bored swimming 40 or 50 laps and music would help as it helps me when i run too.

Once again, reading SF has caused me to covet things I never even knew existed.

Swimming has always been a form of meditation so listening to music sounds very strange. But to each his own.

Uh...you've never put an album or record on before fucking?



I'm listening to music pretty much all hours of the day, sometimes even while falling asleep. I'm sorry you don't have that level of appreciation for music that you can't understand why somebody would want to play it so much.

I don't think that's the same thing as having headphones/earbuds on, with wires attached to an ipod while fuking. You can read a book while fuking too, but it probably means you aren't too interested in the fuking.

I'm sorry you don't have that level of appreciation for music that you can't understand why somebody would want to play it so much.
I have an extreme appreciation for music...which is why when I'm listening to it, that's all I'm doing. What you are describing is the sort of mass ADD young people seem to have these days.

If you are doing a boring task, and having ear buds and not being totally aware of your environment doesn't pose any safety risks...then go ahead and listen to some music. Even then I would prefer having speakers rather than it in my ear.

Having ipods in your head while doing pretty much everything is not multitasking...it's doing everything half-assed.

The irony is that I may be older than you. Well, physically, that is.
