Title: I gotta admit
Post by: Brent on Dec 03, 2003, 10:37:55 AM
I gotta admit, I like the ad-free browsing. The board is wider, and I'm not in hand-to-hand combat with those *$&^! pop-ups. I don't mind banners, but if I ever meet the clown who invented pop-ups, me and him and my Smith & Wesson are gonna have a short but effective little chat.

The same goes for the maggots that write those 'browser bugs' that mess with your browser. They change your homepage and pop up ads whenever you open a browser, and the new ones grey-out the settings so you can't change it back. THOSE scumbags ought to be taken out back and shot.

Me: "So, you're the guy that wrote that annoying browser bug?"

Him: "Yes, I sure did! Cool, huh?"

Me: (BLAM) (BLAM) (BLAM)

Dude, I will respond to this post because I've had this "itch" ever since I read it.  I can't control myself any longer, so, instead of biting my tongue til it falls off, I'll respond with respect to you.

WTF?  DUDE!  You're complaining that I'd love to bop monster upside the head and you're here talking about blowing someone away because you don't like their pop ups?  

Man.........Brent..........DUUUUUDE.......what's up with that?  That's some seriously farked up intense weirdness ya got goin on in that skull of yours.

Bop on head for beating me up, shooting in the head for a pop up.

um...care to explain why my bopping is worse????  



See...I can be nice.....

Lol, yes, because my violence wouldn't be court-sanctioned. I'd go to jail for it (as I should). But it would be worth it.....  lol


> That's some seriously farked up intense weirdness ya got

Well, duh. Haven't you been paying attention?


> Bop on head for beating me up, shooting in the head for a pop up.

Sounds fair to me. Let's sign it into law as soon as possible.


> um...care to explain why my bopping is worse????

I don't recall saying it was worse.

Finally, I don't think anyone here but that whiny-weenie "sweetnsad" could possibly take me seriously. I doubt you actually did, or am I wrong?

Well, you could say, "I lost my pacifier, please find it for me!".

Or you could say "I'm such a shallow and vindictive little whiner that I actually typed the words 'haha!' into a post".

Or you could say "My ass still hurts from the spanking Brent rightfully gave me earlier".

Or you could say "I'm such a hopeless weenie that I waited for a chance to say something bad about Brent, but he didn't even seem to care".

You could say any of those things. :)   lololol

For this, you get a "bite me".  Court sanctioned violence?  Let's not debate this too long, (cause there's a TON of extreme opinions on this subject, one of them being mine) but what on earth would you call the death penalty?  Amen Indy, High Five Indy, WTG Indy, and all sorts of other "woohoo's" directed to me.  (I can hear the crowd go wild)


-----Finally, I don't think anyone here but that whiny-weenie "sweetnsad" could possibly take me seriously. I doubt you actually did, or am I wrong?-----

Dear Mr. Brent,

Your needless slam on sweetnsad earns you 2 bops to the head.  You said in a whole buncha posts that this was unacceptable.  And did I think you were serious?  puhleeze.  I, however, AM serious when I say I'd LOOOOOVE to be given the go ahead to skull monster.

> but what on earth would you call the death penalty?

I'm totally in favor of the death penalty. The difference is that it's administered by the State, not on a person-to-person basis.

I only wish the death penalty could be applied in lots more situations, like crappy drivers, people that park like idiots, and the ones that come to my door at 8:00 Saturday morning trying to sell me their religion. I mean, if a particular religion was really that good, would they have to go door-to-door selling it like magazine subscriptions? I always refuse them very politely. Speaking in a calm, well-modulated voice, I say "Get the *&$% off of my porch before I blow your &^%@ing heads off, you stupid &$%ing  %@*holes!!!"

Stop whining. But rest secure in the knowledge that your inferiority complex is fully justified.

While it could be called "drastic" by some, I sure as hell stopped seeing them at my door.  

When they come over, take their little pamphlet.  Pretend to be very interested in what they have to say, then commence to eatin!  Yes, you read right.  Start eating their pamphlet while staring at them.

You will NEVER EVER EVER have another door to door religion sale again.

Trust me.  They'll run so fasta way from you, they'll be trippin over their dropped pamphlets.  

Serious dude, it worked for me!!!

Post by: Indigo Mom on Dec 03, 2003, 08:29:48 PM
I thought it was brilliant, if I do say so myself.  Extreme, yes, but ya hafta go to extremes to prevent these people from knocking on your door all hours of the day and night.  Some people just don't get it when you say "I'm sorry, I'm just not interested".  Cause as we ALL know, they're bound and determined to get you to buy into their crap.  They come back.  And they keep coming back.  You can even tell them you worship Satan...and they'll keep coming back!!!!  ("He" would want us to help this poor soul)

So you two BONEHEADS can call me weird all ya want.  It won't be me hiding behind the couch as they're peering into my house trying to get me to see the light....it's gonna be YOU.  LOL

I'm still getting popups.

I hate popups.

Popups suck.  
Title: Even better...Brent they'll never bother you again!
Post by: StPaulieGirl on Dec 05, 2003, 12:18:27 AM
Okay, this humiliated me as a kid, but my mother would debate the Mormons and Jehova's Witnesses.  She would actually try and convert them at the door.  Ahhh, memories.  My dad would shake his head and go have a shot of whiskey.  I'd sneak into the backyard....nevermind.  They will not come to this house to this day.  Back in the desert, my now ex put up the sign forbidding trespassers, preachers, and salespeople.  Yep, and some people still didn't get it.

One thing I did way back before we lived in the desert, was when a couple of church ladies came calling.  I just ran loose on them.  I did conspiracy theories that would make Art LaBelle proud.  The best part was when they slowly started backing away from the door.  These days, I'm just too damn polite.  

If you have the energy, mess with their heads.  Hey it's not like you invited them over, right?
Title: i had to reply here separately brent
Post by: mudbunnies on Dec 05, 2003, 06:00:18 AM

Title: politically correct ... not
Post by: mudbunnies on Dec 05, 2003, 06:05:41 AM
i thought brent's original post was great.

i empathized with it
i laughed with it
i enjoyed it

its true, we all hate something that someone else has invented, um like the term Non-custodial parent....

its our right to voice our opinions, we may not all agree but comeon if we couldn't voice it, what freedoms do we have?

so brent's not the norm, most of us in some way aren't either...

i have so many non norm traits that i proudly display them on a t-shirt!
drives my neighbors crazy... besides i'd stand right beside brent and tell them i didn't see anything, guy shot himself, must of been the pop ups that drove him to it!

relax folks....

its friday.... go have another cup of coffeee

I wasn't slamming Brent, just givin' the ol galoot a run for his money.  I too thought it was funny.  I know he knows I thought it was funny.  

I don't think we were "fighting"...but getting along in a weird, tacky, cheezie sorta way.

Thanks!

Actually my POS computer died....hard drive #6 crashed.  I was finally out of warranty.  Don't buy Hewlett Packard products.  I had every freeware program known to man on that other one, and I've been trying to find the websites.  Thank you again :)
