Re: Be Funny Or Die Trying
If you are talking about what I wrote, ...

No, I was not, but rather to Phat's repeating of an old evangelical Christian meme (which I had only heard from fundamentalists post-1970's). That simple fact is evidenced by my message, Message 627, having been explicitly a reply to his Message 624. For that matter, I have absolutely no idea what post of yours you are talking about since it forms no part in that chain of messages.

Glad you were able to get all that out of your system. Since it has absolutely nothing to do with me, I'll just let it lie there.

Re: Be Funny Or Die Trying
Thanks for the concern and explanation, do you mind if I call you Dave?

Glad you were able to get all that out of your system. Since it has absolutely nothing to do with me, I'll just let it lie there.

Me too, and I can leave that there. I just wanted to explain myself:

In Message 615, you said fuck me and fuck trump, and I had no idea where that came from. Given what I had just written; If that was just a simple misunderstanding, then IDGAF and we're good.

One thing you could have done for me was "acknowledge" my last reply to you, Message 615 (then I would have known you saw it and didn't want to disagree here). You can do that to that to this post to say that you agree. Otherwise, please respond with your disagreement.

Re: Be Funny Or Die Trying
... , do you mind if I call you Dave?

My name is David. I have never gone by "Dave". No aversion to it, just never have.
My emails at work (Outlook) got all screwed up when our web-head entered my first name as "Dave" instead of "David", whereupon I lost everything.

Other than that, the only moniker I never seemed able to respond to was "Sarge". Though I have no problem with "Chief", but then that's a different service.

{In-line Footnote:
While undergoing my annual physical I was waiting to have my dental X-ray taken. The DT came out and announced the next patient as "Chief". As all three of us CPOs looked up, I suggested that he not simply use our first name.

If you're a civilian, just remember back to Rock Hudson's line in "Ice Station Zebra": "Because of the close quarters here {on a submarine}, we're all on a first-name basis. My first name is 'Captain'."
}

In Message 615, you said fuck me and fuck trump, and I had no idea where that came from.

Basically, tequila. Over a decade ago I collected some quotations. One of them (Mitch Radcliffe?) said something like this:

quote:
A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any other invention in human history, with the possible exception of handguns and tequila.

As for my Message 614, as I seem to recall (through the haze) I was trying to be humorous by responding like a typical Trumpette. Though we should all note here that you misquoted me! This is what I had actually posted in Message 614:

DWise1 writes:

Fuck you. Trump won. All your Christian sentiments are worth complete shit. Stop bitching about it already!

Do feel free to point out that specific "fuck trump" text you think I had said in that message.

Also, I had not seen your reply, Message 615. Nor did your reply Message 630 in which you most recently took me to task make any mention at all of the original offending message Message 614, thus robbing me of any context. That was further exasperated by you always pointing to your Message 615 instead of my offending message Message 614.

I guess the humor of responding like a Trumpette just did not translate across as I had intended it to.

I do apologize. It's just that we are all in for an incredible four-year shit-storm. Not just the USA, but most of the world.

Edited by dwise1, : Trying to get the ratings right in the in-line footnote. Had to remember back that it was dental X-rays.

Edited by dwise1, : Specifying "the humor of responding like a Trumpette" to remove ambiguity

How to deal with politically challenged family members
I'm sick of the unfunny leftist excuses for humor. Now you can get sick at mine.

I recently discovered The Rebel Media YouTube channel. Great politlcal stuff (and extremely pretty young women if that might interest some of you.)

Also this funny guy. Yeah Thanksgiving was a while ago but the message is perenniall.

Edited by Faith, : No reason given.

Evolution's funny !
Just listened to an episode of this on the drive in to work today:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06jm72p

Available for free on the BBC iPlayer, and worth a listen for some smiles. (Basically, a stand-up/sketch show, around evolution).


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?
