My grandfather lied about his age to enlist in WWII. He looks just like Harrison Ford in his wedding photo, his bride smiling that "fuck you I can't believe you just said that can't you behave for five seconds?" smile. He kicked cigarettes like some folks kick a cold, and called out his asshat son-in-law at Thanksgiving. He dragged my cousin back to school when his father (my grandfather's son) passed away suddenly and his mother was too distraught to function. He raised seven children, who gave him fifteen grandchildren, and five great-grands so far. (This is how you properly kick Darwin's ass, in case you were wondering.) He celebrated his 50th anniversary with his wife and after she passed got himself a girlfriend. He used to get my brother all riled up on sugar and lack of adult supervision before dumping him back on my mom. He always wanted tech support from the kids and grandkids, but he fucking listened and got it after the first time.

He's in the hospital, his girlfriend crashed the car they were in. Surgery went better than could be hoped for, but the recovery is not going well. He's almost 94, and has been in bonus rounds for a while now. His girlfriend was discharged for her own injuries (fractured ribs and cracked sternum to his spinal damage) and he was relieved to see her when she visited. Given his stroke six weeks ago, and everything else, well, it's sensible to be a little pessimistic. Anyway, I thought you all should know the kind of person he is, because he did some awesome shit and the eventual obituary, whether it's this incident that gets him or another in a few months or years, will no doubt be boring and ignored by all.

Fuck 2016.

I'm sorry to hear that, and I hope he pulls through.   :sad:

I am a terrible person, because I'm not necessarily pulling for him to recover from this one. There are worse ways to go, and the longer things drag on the more likely "worse" becomes. As it stands he'd be looking at hella physical therapy for even upper body mobility after this and an assisted living facility, and none of that is stuff that would make him happy.

Fuck. Sorry to hear it QG. At least he wasn't shy on the living life front, sounds like he did his fair share.

Thanks for sharing.

Still falls under the current (very out of date) set of rules, since there's an extremely high probability that he was an alternate account of a previously banned member.

But really, I was just tired of him turning every potentially interesting thread on the forum into his personal screechfest. I know it's not technically spamming but it has the exact same effect on the board.

Thank fuck. The board basically became the RP show for a minute there.

Shit, QG, that's terrible and I'm so sorry to hear it. :(

A note to the Electoral College:
Its better to be faithless than gutless
YMMV
Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It’s what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re going to get selfish, ignorant leaders.     St George Carlin

If he was who we think he was, then hoooooly shit, dude, you have no idea how right you are.

You know I hate to say this but when folks get all secret service about trolls and weirdos it just sounds like a bunch of tin-foil hattery. I know its xmas but the tinfoil goes on the turkey not the cranium - just saying.

Your opinion has been noted and will be given all of the consideration that it merits.

It occurs to me that we are horribly underprepared for the next 4-8 years. RP ran rings around this place, when he couldn't make a point he would resort to absurdism. He is going to be the least of our problems now.

This is a distress signal: Would all walking glitches please reawaken.
May you find your worth in the waking world

Naw, even if thats the best we could do it beats doing nothing, and a walking glitch doesn't mean a destructive trip, if anything there will be too much of the destructive trip going down.

It is a very, very small triumph, but I have been looking for a published deiodinase preadsorption concentration for a week, and I finally found one.

WOOHOO!

Also one of the undergrads I'm training on the scope looks like Harry Potter, and is very annoying.

Annoying because he looks like Harry Potter, or independent of that?

Yeah, xRP was kinda tripping but did provide for interesting thought experiments.  His angle of incidence toward the board was off, bombastically buffoonish, yes, but I would be remiss not to pass along the fleeting idea I have that he could change his ways to be more gentle.  I digress.
