Message 1398357 - Posted: 3 Aug 2013, 17:50:24 UTC

And YOU have the gall to call me WHAT??


Actually I didn't call you anything, what I said was:

It is a travesty to everything SETI@Home stands for, we all know he has delusions, a lot believe he should be permanently banned for the depths he drags this public forum to.

Please do what most others do and ignore him, let this fanciful garbage sink to the bottom of the pile where it belongs.


I have decided not to post on these boards any more as long as you do. I was alerted to the fact that you were "calling me out" by friends. I have nothing to add to the above statement.

Have a nice day, sir.

One, if he were a friend, understands that sometimes another person has to live in another world to survive.

And, given that, I have done a well bit better to do so than some who deal with the demons I have.

You call me down, Robert.

I know you are right in many respects.

But, baby, you have not walked even an inch in my shoes.

So, best get your mind straight.

I done more, I have experienced more, than most outside of the military friends I have have done so.

Just because I try to share with you some things I have experienced in my freaking teenage years with you........

I should have known better.


Mark, I am NOT your friend. We've never met and never will meet.
Although, with the rich fantasy life you seem to be leading, you may think we spend every weekend fishing together and enjoying each other's company.

It's true that I haven't walked an inch in your shoes, but that's because I've spent my time trying to improve myself and the condition of working people via my union activities.
I haven't spent untold hours drinking my life away. I don't live in a junk filled house with a herd of cats.
I don't make stuff up to impress the gullible.

No. You can keep those shoes. I have a better path.

As for your claim that you've done more and experienced more...
How?

You've boozed more than anyone by your own admission. Where have you found time to do everything else?

Wake up to reality Mark. Look around your home at the piles of junk.
We've all seen the dusty old electronics with bags of beer and soda cans behind them.
Wake up.

You are not an important person. You do not make a difference. No one cares.

What does one say after reading things like this last post?

Why does one need to say anything? Especially knowing the response you are likely to provoke?

You are not an important person. You do not make a difference. No one cares.

Robert, that statement is demonstrably false. Please confine your statements to your own opinion, and do not presume to speak for others.

Thank you, Donald.

It's not so much being put in my place when I deserve it.
And the Lord knows and I know I do need to be dressed down once in occaision.
I accept that. I have for many years. The mods give me special exemption by banning me.....'almost'. I hope they realize that I realize what they are doing.

I DO.

I have thanked the mods more than once for their understanding of my personal issues. And I have a shitload of them, kids. A virtual bomb every day I wake up on this earth...............
I have things that haunt me to the death.
Not that I am the only one, I am sure. I just seem to have more than my quota, as it were.


So, OK.
No more names mentioned.
Mo personal attacks. They should be dealt with swiftly.

I am here to stay, you shall not chase me away.

So, you shall have to deal with me as with any 'normal' Setizen.

The 'red-x' is your friend. Just tell me what and why you are objecting, and I shall do my best to deal with it.

Most of all, remember.
I have kitties.
They are my best friends.
They are yours too.

Meow.

I hope some day I get through to some of you.

I get verbose......really not thinking and just shooting from the hip when I get drunk. Many of those shot hit home, it seems, ans it irks some that my opinions can be so bold and brave.

But I suspect that even my detractors could say that once the kitties get their teeth into a subject and really dig in..........
You might have a hard time prying me away from it.........in any state of mind.

So, don't please write me off when I drink too much. I have been doing it for 35 years, and your lack of acceptance of it just ain't gonna change it.

You can, though, please accept me for the man I am.

What you have to understand is it was NEVER a 'better than you' thingy.

I just always tried to excel and do better than the rest at anything I have done.
I crushed them at most anything I have ever done.

And JJ was no different. And I was not different back then.

I HAD to have her.........and she had to have me. Just that once.

I did. This was a teenage thingy.......I wish all of you would get by that.
35 freaking years ago.

Do I hold a torch for her still? Yeh, I suppose I do.....
What other man does not remember his first love if not married to her?
You all make me sound somewhat like a freak for this.
I assure you, I am NOT.

It was a pure and simple love at the time.
I had to leave, she had to stay.

I was left to explore what was between my loins..........
JJ gave me one night.......and the next morning it was like.ll
Hey, that was cool, what next.

\Next thingy I knew she was making out with Cheri.

I ditched the relationship at that point. Besides, my bus had to leave.

Give you this much.
As was suggested by another poster in another thread.

My recollection of particular dates, places, and times has started to go away.

My recollection of certain events in my life has not.

I can recall a certain woman or car I had back in the sixties. What I did with that woman or car back in the sixties. Just not the placement in time.

I have lost that now...... both the lady and the car.

When I say I had a 600hp Pontiac LeMans........I had it.

I cannot any longer quote plate or title numbers. That was to insignificant at the time, and still is now.
I can probably still remember tire pressure. About 20 in the back, about 40 in the front.
I still run them that way in the Olds. Because I drive that way. Hard into the corners. And the tyres wear just fine that way. Rotate them from front to back this fall.

I wouldn't totally agree with this. He has provided occasional amusement.

As for your claim that you've done more and experienced more...
How?


This I agree with you Robert--we're told not to judge him (and rightfully so) but yet he presumes to have experienced more in life then us. This doesn't wash for me.

I hope he mellows out and understands in Seti all are equal. Then he probably wouldn't be banned as much or at all.

And I almost forgot to mention.

Yesterday was a triple kitty birthday here.

Tigger II, Bandit, and Purrball (littermate sisters) had their 12th birthday yesterday. (And elder Squirrel is now almost 18-1/2yo.)

Happy Birthday, my beloved kitties.

I just saw a picture on Facebook of a cat carrying a knife in its mouth. The words on it said, "She's been doing this with various size knives all week. I don't know how much time I have left."
