Re: Video rant on sports fans

Ya know, this latest ongoing online spat reminds me of a lost episode of The Twilight Zone I once saw decades ago when I was a kid. Let's see, who wrote the script? Yeah, it was Rod Serling himself. It was really neat. :) It was about these two guys who posted in a website's forum. One of them was a...

I'll provide the bananas ...

Two observations need to be made at this point:

1) Name-calling never convinces anyone of anything.

2) Completely ignoring is more effective than responding.

Re: Video rant on sports fans

This personal tit for tat between Fat Man and Fitman's Brother has the potential to continue indefinitely, but it won't go anywhere. :|

A lot of heat generated, but no light.

Re: Neil Armstrong - First Man On Moon Died Today At Age 82

My sentiments as well ...

Mrs. Earl cried when she heard the news. She was in high school during the lunar landing.

Re: Video rant on sports fans

I cannot disagree with what Millhouse has said. He's right. But I'm still torn about this situation. On the one hand, I do believe the presence of sports fans who disagree with this website gives life to the forum. There does seem to be an increase in posting when a critic has started posting here. ...

Re: Video rant on sports fans

It's funny; but at the risk of incurring the wrath of Fat Man, somehow I sense that Fitman's Brother is good at heart. I think he's probably a good kid. (Hey, I mean, I call him a kid because at my age, I'm old enough to be his dad or possibly his granddad. :mrgreen: ) Of course, he does get a littl...

Re: Video rant on sports fans

Continuing from my post above ... To me the only objectionable content in the video was all the cussing, nothing else. Of course, that's nothing new. Needless to say, I realize that online cussing is a frequent occurrence; so, that's all I need to say about that. Other than that, nothing special. So...

Re: Video rant on sports fans

Why is there so much hatred of nerds? Sounds like socially acceptable bigotry. Although I wasn't a nerd in high school (since I didn't deserve the honor of being called one, as my study habits were poor), I get sick and tired of it! Speaking as a 62-year-old man, high-school social life today seems ...

Re: GOOD NEWS!!! Sandusky Convicted of Sexually Abusing Boys

Skul, I would have given you a "thumbs up," too.

And I'm sorry I didn't ban him myself. I wasn't thinking. I was just extremely tired and depressed.

Re: So a few questions

JimmyJohns, I probably shouldn't do this; but I'll answer for Fat Man before he gets around to posting a response to your latest post. You're right; Fat Man is a virgin, but not for the reason you assume. The trauma of being raped by a fellow inmate in the mental institution where he was incarcerate...
