"The future ain't what it used to be."




Just a question for the regulars here. For the most part I'm just a browser as I personally find the group as a whole much more insightful than myself(so, I learn alot from reading your exchanges...thank you for the insights.). My question is about People like Jon, and Xenovis.... do you experience alot of people who claim to be time travellers? If so, do they all seem to exute this idiotic sort of banter....exclaiming the grand nature of their travels only to be shot down(and rightfully so)by true thinkers? I know there are alot of kooks out there and I'm curious as to how common this is. It would seem to me that if they were going to study our behaviors then they would not be so forward with the true nature their motives. It's seems very odd to me. Well, actually, it seems assinine to tell you the truth.
Did you ever think for a minute that the READERS of this forum might actually think that you and some of your regular POSTING self serving bum buddies are dull and predictable? Check out the readership numbers on individual postings during this little exchange for instance. If people honestly don't like reading a poster, they just don't bother. The numbers in this case say they WANT more "kooks", you just hate admitting it. Now quick, scrounge up some support from the clique to save your pompous little ass. You know you want to............................

You really are this pathetic, aren't you? That's too bad. I guess there is little more one can say to that.
I might point out that the reason your posts are so high is because you are truly ignorant. For some reason people like the monkey exhibit at the zoo quite a bit as well....maybe it's because they like to throw feces at each other and that is amusing in a sad, and pathetic way. I am not saying that you are not entertaining. But I am saying that you like to throw crap at people. Take that how you will.
Aw Whatsa Matta ?

The real reason the overall read count was high, was because the site got an award in the middle of it all, ya silly bugger. More overall visitors, more reads. "Cause dumb people like watching a monkey", good answer lamewad. I noticed you were standing right at the fence. What you don't get, is that most people figured out what was really going on pretty early and just settled in to chuckle at the whole thing, and watch you couple of condescending dweebs over react to a kook. Sometimes laughing at people who are laughing at that monkey can be fun too. It sounds like you're having a hard time accepting the fact that anybody can be interested in this topic, but not in your tightass perspective on life.

Re:Aw Whatsa Matta ?

O.k., I give. You are obviously just going to continue these juvenile responses until you anger me. Do not expect me to place another rebuttal, you will not receive one from me until you show some civility. I do not ask for anyone else to support my opinion of you, your actions have done more than support my position. You may want to read through some of the better discussions from the archive if you have not done so already...they can be insightful and very interesting. If you feel you are somehow not interested in the subjects that we discuss here then please find another forum that may appreciate your interests. Enthusiasm is a great thing when it's constructive....and the regulars here appreciate a good open-minded exchange of ideas. I've said my peace.
Re:Re:Aw Whatsa Matta ?

"UNTIL you anger me"? BWAHAHAHA

What's next, SimonB chiming in, saying he knew all along? You guys get so caught up playing King and Queen of the Time Travel Forum that you've learned to ignore what wankers you can be. I've been around for about six months, and will be sticking around, whether some of you bossy arrogant little shits like it or not. Yes, I've read the archives, and yes there are interesting and worthwhile comments posted here. I just don't need or want your permission to continue to enjoy them.

Re:Re:Re:Aw Whatsa Matta ?

Hello there Jon. How's tricks.

Just to surprise you, I'm not going to get hostile in any way. It achieves nothing. Maybe you noticed that?

We're not wankers just because we found your manner offensive. As that's what you set out to do, what did you expect?

Are we wankers because we responded? or because we insulted you back in no uncertain terms? It all comes down to the relative safety of the internet I suppose...there's not much risk of getting your teeth backhanded across the street is there? (Please don't take that the wrong way - I'm not wasting my time by physically threatening you

Anyway, who cares? That's not the point.

I agree wholeheartedly that you have as much right to be here as anyone. I guess that's the double edged sword of free speech.

You have to decide whether you want to be respected for your unique opinions or not though. That's your choice, not ours. If not, then I suppose this falls on deaf ears and you'll continue to make pointless 'long distance' insults.

So where are you going to go from here? I think that we'd all prefer to avoid the pointlessness of continued hostility.

It will be no surprise if you post an offensive reply though, but it doesn't really matter. If you've already formed the opinion that anyone who disagrees with you is inherently a wanker, then there's nothing that we can say to change that is there?

I'm extending you some social grace, what you do with it is up to you. If you think that I'm a wanker by being polite to you at this stage, I guess that you'll have to live with it won't you.

One last thing. What made you so resentful of the regulars here in the first place? I mean, as I recall you were 'thumbing your nose' from the word go..Did something about us offend you that early on?

Do you find this 'hopefully civillised' message patronising and condescending?

Yours hopefully(although probarbly in futility),


Ps..a little bedtime reading from 1970...

"Gould is more than just a synergistic reaction between the era and the audience. His remarkable year is being capped by the ultimate cinematic coup--a leading role in a film by Sweden's consummate film maker, Ingmar Bergman. Bergman picked Gould for the part of a rootless archaeologist in his forthcoming film The Touch after seeing him in Getting Straight --the movie among the four currently in circulation in which Gould feels he gave his best performance. "Very often you see American monsters created by the audience," says Bergman. "Oh, they do have something, but it's only one dimension. They can never express anything but themselves. What I want from the actors in my pictures is an ability to express the second and third dimensions, an ability to put the part together inside themselves and then materialize it. I want to get it from their faces, from their eyes, from their movements. I can see that Gould has it."

There...did you get the deep underlying message. (There isn't one actually).
Re:Re:Re:Re:Aw Whatsa Matta ?

Did you actually read this thread before you wrote that? SimonB.......SimonB......what the hell am I gonna do with you? I think this one has kinda slid by ya.

"Jon Formet"
You poor thing:(((((((((((((((((

Oh it was futile after all, you crazy young unbending thing you.

I'd rather that you didn't do anything with me thanks, and yes I did read the thread. I like to have some idea of what I'm talking about see...

The doctor prescribes a girlfriend. They're good for the constitution and particularly beneficial in soothing rampant insecurity.
(You'll be able to identify girls as the menacing creatures in the pink romper suits).

Meanwhile, here's a few words from Mr Jarvis Cocker..

You are hardcore, you make me hard
You name the drama and I'll play the part
It seems I saw you in some teenage wet dream
I like your get up if you know what I mean

I want it bad
I want it now
Oh can't you see I'm ready now
I've seen all the pictures, I've studied them forever
I wanna make a movie so let's star in it together oh..

Don't make a move 'til I say "Action"
Oh, here comes the Hardcore life.

Put your money where your mouth is tonight
Leave your make-up on & I'll leave on the light
Come over here babe & talk in the mic
Oh yeah I hear you now, it's gonna be one hell of a night.

You can't be a spectator, oh no
You got to take these dreams & make them whole
Oh this is Hardcore - there is no way back for you
Oh this is Hardcore - this is me on top of you
& I can't believe that it took me this long
That it took me this long

This is the eye of the storm
It's what men in stained raincoats pay for..
But in here it is pure, yeah
This is the end of the line
I've seen the storyline played out so many times before...
Oh that goes in there
Then that goes in there
Then that goes in there
Then that goes in there
Oh, & then it's over
Oh, what a hell of a show
But what I want to know
What exactly do you do for an encore?,
'Cos this is Hardcore.

...Invigorating, isn't it. Please use it as some kind of incentive to release your pent up sexual tension. But not here, because that's just plain filthy. Cut a swathe where it will be appreciated you prospective stud you..

(Please note Jon. If you are anything near as physically repellent as you have repeatedly displayed yourself to be mentally, don't attempt the Jarvis wooing method, or you'll end up with a restraining order).

Tatty bye..
Re:Re:You poor thing:(((((((((((((((((

Well Jon, that's because you have gone out of your way to be thoroughly dislikeable.

Why do you not place any value in being respected?
Re:Re:Re:You poor thing:(((((((((((((((((

Nobody's ever loved me, or respected me, so I don't respect them..
The only pleasure I get, is from the perversity of being disrespected.
I don't know how to change. You see, I have absolutely no redeeming features..
Re:Re:Re:Re:You poor thing:(((((((((((((((((

I thought that perhaps you had no redeeming features, that this deeply unpleasant and repetitive behaviour may be more or less the full extent of your personality.

The problem you have is, if you were to attempt to overcome your character flaws, there probarbly wouldn't be enough left to carry on with.

It looks like your buggered I'm afraid..
Re:Re:Re:Re:Re:You poor thing:(((((((((((((((((

Oh why god?...why did you make me this way??????????

By the way, you accidently mispealt you're as "your"...oh there goes my pedantic streak..

I have to say, that I don't understand why the time gap between our postings is so small, but I'll make an unfounded categorical statement anyway because that will be really funny...um...I...er...oh I can't think of anything...oh why??

...Why does the universe mock me so????
