What did you steal from U2?

Not meant to be a thread about how U2 changed your life, brought you back to God or got you through a rough situation--all of which are good topics; however, this is meant to be more playful. Everybody is influenced by their favorite bands either
subtly or blatantly. Many fans take something from the band as a token.

For example:

1. Do you wear shades more?
2. Do you write notes on scattered pieces of paper?
3. Whose attitude did you cop?
4. What cause U2 introduced you to do you work for
as homage to the band?
5. Did you change your dressing style?
6. Did you steal a pickup line?
7. Have you added an idiosyncracy of theirs to your
behavior?
8. Has your language changed.

I wear sunglasses more, been introduced to Irish tea and Guinness and bought a pair of drumsticks (can't play drums).
And although Bono is my favorite, I think Larry is more like me, so I got the Larry glare down pat.

5. - I bought a flat cap identical to the one Bono wore during the gig with Pavarotti/Edge and Eno.

Ha, I stole a few things!

- During the Elevation tour, I wore NOTHING but numbered shirts. I have about seven of them. Here's one, for instance:



- I bought a copy Explorer, just because I thought that The Edge looked cool with it.



- I flash people peace signs at random

- I do The Edge's signature foot stomp when I play guitar live

- I have at least five pairs of sunglasses that I don't even wear. I bought them because they reminded me of Bono shades.

And there's probably more that I'm not even aware of.

I'm going to have to somehow incorporate his new double-footstomp from the ABOY video into our upcoming talent show.

I am now agressive,well not too much, and impolite(not here, in normal life), and acting like i'm cool-like The Fly
I try to imitate Edge while playing guitar and i will have child-molesting moustache like Edge from Pop.
Trying to get 7 shirt.
