I mainly play my classical Yamaha. It's a CG something or other; wasn't too pricey at all. Really a quality instrument especially for the money. I have a Music Man Axis also although I rarely play electric. That too is a fantastic instrument. If I could have any electric would probably be an old Gretsch Country Gentleman..

Rule 1: First perform any calculations inside parentheses. Rule 2: Next perform all multiplications and divisions, working from left to right. Rule 3: Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.  Mathgoodies.com
PE(MD)(AS) The reason (multiplication & division  MD) and (add & subtract  AS) are "grouped" in sets of parentheses is that when those operations are next to each other you do the math from left to right. You do not always do multiplication or addition first. It may be the case where division will be done BEFORE multiplication or subtraction will be done BEFORE addition  Regentsprep.org
A common technique for remembering the order of operations is the abbreviation "PEMDAS", which is turned into the phrase "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally". It stands for "Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction". This tells you the ranks of the operations: Parentheses outrank exponents, which outrank multiplication and division (but multiplication and division are at the same rank), and these two outrank addition and subtraction (which are together on the bottom rank). When you have a bunch of operations of the same rank, you just operate from left to right. For instance, 15 ÷ 3 × 4 is not 15 ÷ 12, but is rather 5 × 4, because, going from left to right, you get to the division first.  Purplemath.com
Rules
1. Calculations must be done from left to right.
2. Calculations in brackets (parenthesis) are done first. When you have more than one set of brackets, do the inner brackets first.
3. Exponents (or radicals) must be done next.
4. Multiply and divide in the order the operations occur.
5. Add and subtract in the order the operations occur.  Math.About.com

No I competed in the US open a couple of times Big Ache started a thread a while back in which I posted a picture an old gi with USA on the back that was from the US open...
Lost to I think the canadian olympian that tournament
I won USJA and USJI nationals if I remember correctly...
You don't remember?? Anyway, right on. Judo is a great sport. Can't say I agree with all the new rule changes but whatever. USA judo is crazy; They really went to town on the USJA last year. I'm glad they resolved all the issues and the USJA is still around though.
