It's been more than two weeks since the JREF webmaster sent my drooling amoeba of a husband a letter saying this:


Thanks very much for sending me this SASE. If you'll send email to jeff@randi.org with the word queerasa2peckrdbillygoat* in it, I will reactivate your account.

Thanks for following through with this. I know it's inconvenient.



Like a nutrient solution for President Fuck-Nutty's terminal chance of being let back in JREF... of course, nothing happened when he emailed back. But that didn't stop George from leaving pecker tracks all over my new gingham kulats.

How am I supposed to tell President Bush that, although the wheel is spinning, the hamster looks dead?




* Not the real password, is it, Jeff?

The only butt around here that's hurting is yours at the end of your shift as "towel boy" at the bathhouse.

There is a theory that there is only one user here (shemp) and that every other account is one of his socks.

Yes, even you. How sure are you?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

There actually was a forum once that had just one person posting

It seemed creepy as hell, but also kind of awesome

Turned out they were using the forum as a personal database and posting cross linked data and info just for themselves to be able to use

Which makes it was less strange

Until you find out every last entry and post was about the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Before Wikipedia I was part of a group doing a similar thing, a thing where we tried to use a forum as a linked database of everything, which included anything somebody would write

It has wiki like fast linking and was pretty cool

It probably still exists


(does quick check)

Yep

And it’s still going

No, I have no more than 30 or 40 sock puppets.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
