One Game Ends. Another Begins.

Here's a fun one for the quote game. No Googling!
Several years ago a college in Colorado made a study of the effects of music on plants. Plants exposed to beautiful, soothing music thrived and turned toward the speaker. In an otherwise identical environment, another group of the same type of plant was exposed to acid rock. Those plants turned away from the speaker and within three days had shriveled and died. Further experimentation proved that the sound waves of the rock music had actually destroyed the plants’ cells.

That is incorrect.

But seriously, thanks for playing.

Scott Aniol? Matt Herbster? This was first published in the SI forums, right?

By the way, I might have seen buckeye this am - if he's who I think he be

Ben said...

No, no, and no. Scott actually finds this argumentation weak, if I recall correctly. I can't remember how Matt makes his case. And as for the SI forums, well, the author of this quote knows how to spell, use punctuation, and say something without getting into a KJV debate.

By the way bookpress, only one guess per comment. Try to be a little more deliberate about this. It's one of the marks of a healthy post.

You may well have seen him if he's who I think he be, and you're who I think you be.

I really hope you all check back in when the answer is revealed.

Oh, Benoit is a good guess. He came to my church when I was in Jr. High to tell us about backmasking. Of course, he had to preach in the gym since he played rock music and that wasn't permitted in the sancturay . . .

Not Benoit or Makujina.

Never heard of Benoit, actually. I'm going to have to check him out.

Do we need hints?

You're a tricky guy, Ben Wright.

It's Bill Gaither!!!!

Ben said...

Oh, so confident . . .




. . . and yet SO WRONG!

At least I can tell no one's cheating with Google.

Frankly, there has only been one guess that even has a similar occupation to the correct answer.

here's maybe an educated (informed) stab, without googling!

Audio Adrenaline... jk

Ben said...

C'mon, Brandon. John MacArthur never could have said that . . .

. . . oops.

(The precise quote is taken from his Ephesians commentary.)

I was wondering if that's what you were after, Ben. I found the same quote yesterday...by Googling. (I'm so ashamed.) It made me grin to think of people busting the chops of fundy's over it, just to have their days ruined to find out it was...HIM!!! :-)
