And yes... I did arrest Police Officers, during one of my many 'interesting' jobs. In a very varied and 'interesting' lifetime.


Has anyone ever tallied up the claims made in this forum?
If no one is keeping track of those kind of things...
I was an astronaut
I was King of Canada
I was responsible for the US withdrawal from Vietnam
I wrote the Bible
I carved the statue of David
I invented the computer and the self driving car
I broke the sound barrier on a bicycle
and whenever the Pope calls on me for advice, I simply state, "Keep it real, man."

Well, I read this thread from start to finish and am forced to admit that I still have no idea as to what you cricketers are talking about.
It may seem blasphemous to some of you, but not all members of the commonwealth have been exposed to the game.

Now that I'm retired, I'll stop and watch if I ever see it being played.

Racism was invented in the 70s


What can a rational being say to someone like this?
There's no way to cut through the dense layers of racism and stupid that are wrapped around the dormant organ he calls a brain.

I would not expect you to understand a manic depressive's mind.



I seem to recall you once admitting this to be a self diagnosis.
Since everything you say is bulls4!t, there's no way of knowing if the admission was bull or if the depression is bull.
It matters little.

What matters even less is the story of a lonely 60 year old virgin, living in a house full of garbage (you admitted that too) and cats.
To overcome feelings of overwhelming underachievement, the man rages to the world, "NOTICE ME! I AM HERE!"
But no one gives a damn because the lonely 60 year old virgin in a dirty house full of garbage and cats has spent years gradually insulting or even threatening others online.

Now this guy spends his time talking to himself in his own little thread.
Not playing well with others is how you end up alone online.

My Gawd, it's no wonder you are still all alone in a hoarder's house with only cats for company.
What level of dysfunction can turn, what must have been at one time a normal person, into such a drama queen?

If you're going, go.
If you're not going, lay off the melodrama.
For, I do declare, this overacting is giving me a case of the vapours. Oh my.

Bite me Clyde
I used the term to show the duality of Sattler's screwed up life and thoughts.
The cat guy has spouted off in opposition to every progressive post for years, yet now he seeks the compassion of his fellow citizens.
I have none to give where that lifeform is concerned.

So, in closing, may I repeat... Bite me.

It is better that their putrid and fetid inner hatred of those Not Them. Is exposed to the Cleaning Air of Ethics, Morality and Tolerance.

Understanding they have no Ethics, Morality, nor Tolerance. And most probably will never. Their self-exposure will probably lead to their consignment to the Toilet Bowl of History.

We can only hope.


I was going to go on a venomous rampage after reading this drivel, but, what good would it do?
If this Clyde guy believes he and the cross dressing cat guy possess the high ground where ethics, morality and tolerance are concerned, carry on fools.

When Lori arrived, were you wearing that dress you spoke of earlier?
I'm forced to laugh heartily at Mark's behaviour. It's a microcosm of right wing politics.

When he became uncomfortable with the notion of his employer and local authorities being called in, he changed the topic.
Just as the Trumpster fire has deflected public ire by bringing out that old gem of bathroom use by transgender people, so has Mark Sattler changed the topic with a single statement.

Two years ago, you were almost blind too. Not much of a change eh, after all.
https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=73850&postid=1469000#1469000

But of course, being almost blind, you shouldn't keep your drivers license.
I'm sure your doctor will make sure you don't drive. It would be reckless and dangerous....
If not, and since everyone here knows your name, and where you live, I guess it would be a
service to society if your almost blindness was reported to the police, so that they can make sure that you do not drive a car any longer.


I'm more concerned with his ability to wire a firetruck properly.
Is it a moral responsibility of a citizen to report dangers to the authorities?

We have an admission of the progression of blindness, which he says could occur within a time period of a few months.
Not only does this person drive a car on public roadways, he is also involved at the manufacturing stage of emergency vehicles.

Are we, the untold numbers of citizens viewing this thread, obligated to report to both civil authorities and the company this person is employed by?
Does knowledge of this person's impairment involve those who have read this thread in a liable suit if Mark kills someone while driving or if firetrucks all across North America start failing during emergency situations?

Any lawyers out there willing to offer advice on this situation?


If I were impaired to the point of not being able to do my job properly, no team of lawyers would be needed to ask me to step down. I can see the circuit numbers on the wires.
I can still do my job properly and accurately.
You can go to hell with that post.
That was a sick post, and unwarranted, at best.


Your comfort level is outside the question being asked.
Are citizens, with first hand knowledge of visual impairment growing within another, obliged by law to report that information to civil authorities and to employers who may become the target of lawsuits if emergency vehicles start to fail?

I'd be outraged if an American citizen, having read Mark's admission, were found partially liable by way of NOT reporting.

Every morning, I leave my bed and check them. And then I go back to bed to try to get some more sleep.

I am getting older, and it is getting increasingly harder to do that.


We're the same age, so I can relate to the difficulties of leaving the bed to check the computer.
I have but one computer to look at and it exhausts me, I cannot imagine looking at several.

Your efforts every morning are at par with those of a Kentucky coal miner on a double shift and you put everyone with only a single rig to shame.
I better not see anyone else complaining about how hard it is to check their single computer again.
You sir, are the Uberman.

Thanks a lot America.
With the Trump victory embolding them, our Canadian extreme rightist lunatic fringe is spouting off louder than ever.

Fortunately, we have 3 years before our next federal election.

I am a white, union member, working class male.
I support women.
I do not pretend to have greater understanding of the pressures women face in life. I do not belittle women because their experiences are different than mine.
What I do is extend my support to women with the belief that they know more about the experience of being a woman than I do.
If women say the playing field is tilted against them, my reaction is not to argue, rather, I seek ways to level the field.

Some of you fellow SETI members should take a time out from your attacks and actually consider what women are facing in our society.

Trump is a pig. Those who justify his behaviours are pigs.
Pull your heads out of your arses and take a look around. The times, they are a changin'.

No worries For the Children... she can handle herself very well.
I've been following this thread with great delight as Es99 plays Whack-a-Mole with some lesser intellects.
I'm under Dr's orders to avoid stressful situations, such as jousting with the yapping coyotes, so I rarely get involved these days.
