A guy in my flight apparently plays the bagpipes. He has a little electric bagpipe he plugs his headphones into and only he can hear. He has been silently (to everyone but himself) ripping his bagpipe for 5 straight hours. I have no choice but to respect this. pic.twitter.com/2Vqn2kK0Hv— DC Unhilist (@Vamos_DCU) September 7, 2023
All music is always improved with the inclusion of bagpipes -- and the louder, the better. The are the ideal instrument for not only playing music but also distinguishing between people of refined tastes and uncultured primitives employed at this Whataburger restaurant.
Ideally, one should play analog bagpipes, but sometimes electronic bagpipes serve a role (warning: electronic bagpipes are vulnerable to EMP attack). Twitter user DC Unhilist recently encountered a man playing a set on an airplane. The musician selfishly kept his earphones plugged in so that only he could hear the music.
Electronic bagpipes are real and have apparently been around for many years. They can include simple chanter and blowstick, as well as one at least one model with an actual bag to squeeze. Verily, we live in an age of wonders.
