I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

It's not "pics" but "picks".

BIG, HUGE difference. Unless you play with a picture.

Metallica all use Tortex

Jason used the blue ones and those other two goofballs used the green ones.

The colors determine the thickness but i dont remember what they are.

I use the blue ones myself for guitar, I believe they are 1.14. I bought a 200 pack once for like $20 but only have a few left and none have the size on them anymore.

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

That's the 1.12 dunlop tortex - however that would have been early on, or just a random pick, as i've seen in interviews for a couple of years now where he's stated that he plays with that, i have a magazine next to me with that exact answer given to that question in it in an interview with him

Would you like a picture?

I use Clayton Delrin and/or Acetal Rounded Edge Triangle Picks.


Once you've used such a large pick, all others feel small and inferior to the powerful triangle.

All the other guitarists I know think I'm weird because I don't use (or like) dunlop tortex picks.
