People always use the shark episode, but the show had tanked long before that

I had stopped watching long before, and never saw the shark jump


And didn’t care

Perhaps because "jumped the shark" sounds more cleverer than some other cliche. :dunno:

That's comical coming from you, a well known disrespectful attention seeker on this forum.

What exactly was your point in posting an American flag in a thread titled "The past is a foreign country"?

How is that in any way respectful of either America or its flag?

Then what is it doing in this thread? Especially this thread.

No, I was not wrong.

You are the one looking for an "out", not me.

You posted an American flag without explaining that it was not about the topic of this thread. That's blatantly deceptive on the face of it.

You should have explained that you meant it to be about the 9/11 anniversary, and that you did not intend for it to be interpreted within the context of the purpose of this thread.

Your intentional deception is typical of the way you often troll this forum. And now you are trying to weasel out of it by blaming me.

So again, fuck off, troll.

Interesting how another poster "got it" and you didn't.

Opportunistic trolling that failed. Seems to be a habit with you doesn't it.

Now xouper can explain to everyone how me, posting old glory, on 9 /11 in the UK, as a Mark of respect which was explained, on this thread, is trolling.

His desperate weasling should be fun.

I already explained it.

You only "explained" your post after you got caught posting it in the wrong thread. Given your long history of trolling the forum and otherwise behaving like a dillweed, that's all the explanation needed.

Wrong again. As I have explained numerous times, I use it when you no longer deserve any additional response beyond simple scorn.
