Cool pic, makes me laugh, dude. But I don't understand. The cat looks stoned. Maybe I do understand.

The vast majority of us who are biased against Behr paint are so from personal experiences which hold far more weight in our decision making when buying paint than testing and and articles from a guy we don't even know.

I for one have had multiple bad experiences with their paint, the final straw was a few years back my neighbor paid me to put a nice paint job on one of those wood shed-like things where all the pumps and filtration systems for his swimming pool are located. He bought the paint before I could stop him, which I applied multiple coats with an Airless after prepping the wood well beyond what was typically necessary in hopes it would hold up. Well... it lasted two years before cracking and flaking off. I re-painted it in the shame fashion almost 3 years ago but this time using Dunn Edwards, and it still looks great.

At least you based it upon your experience with it, for which I give you credit. That is much better than bashing products which you have never applied.
