I was thinking of paying for my outstanding ISP bill with a picture of a 7 legged spider ...

Here at toms we used to have a cage where we encouraged the trolls to live and recreate ... but they ate so many n00bs the staff made us close it down.

RIP Forum 40 !!

Good article! I never heard of trying to pay a bill with a drawing but thought it was funny as H*ll.

The worst trolls are people who don't even realize they are in fact trolling.

Ive always imagined a TV show called Troll Hunter where they track down particularly offensive trolls and pull them from their (Mothers) den. I think a cross in the heart or maybe exposure to sunlight would do in most of them.

Well after exhaustive analysis I can confirm we are all in fact trolls within this forums area ... in fact healthy debate (minus the nocturnal emissions) are considered essential in this area.

I therefore (out of respect) have to violently disagree with all of you next posts.

But your a 40yo virgin geek who has had less luck with the girls than monkeyboy has ... at least that's what Jeff used to say all of the time.

/stretches the truth slightly

Ah, the stuff I know that I wish I could unknow about Monkeyboy. haha
March 1, 2012 10:44:22 PM

Bacon??

Seriously ... are there no others who wish to engage riser in I in a good mindless arguement?

There is plenty of room for abuse in this thread.

I was going about my business, making a grape slurpy at 7-11, but then I took an arrow to the knee.
March 2, 2012 12:07:57 PM

Long weekend here !!

I'll try to find out who shot you with the arrow.

I'll start with the hippies then move on to the Democrats.

I have an alibi !!

Death by Castration
I love it
No I dont need help with my mental illness
I am perfectly normal
In fact I am the only normal person I know
Everybody else is crazy
Well at least that is what my dog tells me
:) 
March 4, 2012 12:22:07 PM

You may be more normal than you realise.

Then again you might be a complete loon.

We are all situationally effected and prone to the latter from time to time.

March 4, 2012 12:46:49 PM

I will take three
no make that four
cant forget good ol Mom
Is Paypal okay?

loose defintition of insanity
repeating the same action over and over again and expecting a different result

for example
if you drink an entire bottle of Jack Daniels
bad things happen
so if next weekend you drink another bottle
what did you expect?

that is why I have a strict three drink limit
I dont like waking up in a strange hotel room with my pants down
and holding a female mannequin

well at least the mannequin was female.....
March 5, 2012 6:56:36 AM

I tried to sell one to Mal ... <sigh>.

He really needs one ...

:) 
March 5, 2012 6:58:37 AM

I have a strict zero drink limit.

I'd much rather a cola and packet of BBQ chips or a coffee and cheese platter.

Got some bbq and satay chicken ready for the BBQ tonight ... and some mango chicken.

This thread is making me put on weight.

March 5, 2012 12:38:09 PM

it is winter here
so BBQing isnt happening
but I could go for a Beer Chicken
you know when you take a beer can and cut the top off
poke holes on the side
use seasoning (I like Goya Adobe) in the beer
then shove the beer can up the chickens butt
and cook the whole thing on the BBQ (a smoker works really good)
so the beer boils
even if you are not a drinker it tastes awesome
March 6, 2012 8:44:24 AM

Over here that would be considered sacriledge ... wasting beer like that.

For a start the alcohol does not reach the stomach in a useable medium.

If you think burning a few copies of the bible / Koran will get the christians / Muslims upset then try wasting beer in front of an Australian ... or a Kiwi ... or a Brit ... or a German.

I know your fullstrength beer in the US is like our light beer but I consulted experts and you can only use beer as:

A social drink;
Anesthetic;
Beer Batter.

We will need to petition the beer gods and see if stuffing a chook with beer prior to cooking is acceptable.

This is akin to the canonisation process so may take 40 or so years while experts mull it over a few thousand coldies.

Cheers !!

Smoked beer chicken is fantastic!! I only use cheap beer like Pabst Blue Ribbon, or Old Milwaukee that you wouldn't want to drink anyway. :) 
March 6, 2012 12:49:15 PM

Yes really cheap beer is best for beer chicken
you need something with a really strong flavor even if you wouldnt drink it
I like using Natural Ice (Natty Ice) or Steel Reserve
March 7, 2012 11:48:49 AM

Stuffing chooks with beer ...

Explain the how to do it process and I will give it a go.

I have Coopers real ale / dextrose / golden syrup and some Canadian Blonde / Dextrose / Hakkertau hops blend as well.

Should I go the darker ale or pale bitter pilsner ?

We make our own beer.

This is Australia.
March 7, 2012 1:04:18 PM

use a really strong beer also
something with a real bite
need strong flavor
subtle flavors wont work

also I like to cut the top of can off
make little holes above the fluid line
and use seasoning in the beer
I like Goya Adobe seasoning
but just season to taste
one firm rule
is for every one beer in the chicken
you MUST drink three while cooking
Not my rules
I didnt make them
I just have to follow them
March 7, 2012 1:08:12 PM

Doesn't the aluminium leech into the chicken ... I don't want alzheimers !!

Do you leave it standing up in the oven I spose?

How and I going to bbq a chicken standing up though?

Sew it up?

The oven seems the only way I guess.

That's a can of beer nobody gets to drink.

A sacrifice to the gods I guess ...
March 7, 2012 1:54:27 PM

you can use skewers to go throught the chicken to prop it up

also the Law of the Beer Chicken is :
you cannot ingest beer chicken without at least a .10 blood alcohol level
or in other words
you should be just as cooked as the chicken

I like the way you think. Cheers! :)

Actually I am a very light and social drinker now
I drank only a handful of times in 2011
I use to be a 5-6 night a week bar person
but then came along wife and child
so priorities changed
as I am only driver in family and do not like to drink alone (wife cant drink-heart condition) my recreational alcohol imbibing drastically decreased
but even that is at end of night and not going anywhere with daughter asleep

Nothing like a family to change your evil ways.....

Come on now....You should know by now this kind of thing shouldn't be advertised.

I was just talking about clove cigars

Good. Then we have no problem.

It is interesting reading your posts SMP. Mainly because I see them written almost like txts, each thought a seperate line without any form of continual thought. :) 
March 12, 2012 4:16:26 PM

hmm not sure how to take that :) 

I learned in the corporate email environment with many a regional and district manager who was quite ADD to keep my writings short and to the point and also I like to avoid huge walls of text
March 12, 2012 5:30:22 PM

In non-formal back and forth banter, I suppose you have a point. Much like carrying on a text conversation with a tween. :)  If you write your thoughts well and supply the information in a easy to read manner it would be easy to write complete sentences. Though, I find myself laboring to read many of your posts. :)  But I also thank you, as others do, for the compliment of being intelligent enough to decipher your crude grammar. :) 
March 12, 2012 5:44:10 PM

I was actually in honors english classes in high school and I am also quite well read.
I am sorry if my writing style bothers you.
If it is a labor to read and comprehend my posts then by all means feel free to not read them :) .
I would like to say that while your post is quite polite you just may just be one of the nicest trolls I ever did meet :) 
I feel like you are trying to elicit a negative response from me but I will not stoop so low to get into a "flame war".
I did not realize on Toms that there was grammar police so pardon me for being myself.
I ask you sir that if you do not like my writing style then how about we avoid being on the same threads together.
I will bow out gracefully from this thread and lets just agree to avoid each other.
I respect that you have achieved the position of community reporter and are a well respected long time member of Toms so I do not want to cause any trouble.


March 13, 2012 12:03:29 PM

I read people's writing and get an idea of how they think and do honestly assemble an idea of them based on that.

What do you do for a living? I need to know so I can wrap something around this style of writing.

I do not profess to be a psychologist as they all seem to have many personal issues/demons in them, but I do like watching personalities and assembling quirks and whatnot together to see how a person has come to be themself. Mostly a curse I suppose but it interests me to see the current path people are on, how they started, and where they expect to end.
March 13, 2012 2:30:31 PM

okay fair enough
I graduated high school with about 3.5 GPA taking honors and college prep classes
including PASCAL and BASIC programming also vocational AC/DC classes
Instead of being smart and going to college for computer science like I originally wanted to I decided to take a year off to work (dept manager at local supermarket-making good money for a kid in the late 80s)
In my twenties I suffered from three nervous breakdowns due to being a BiPolar Manic Depressive with delusions of grandeur,paranoia etc
By the time I was thirty I was a store manager for RadioShack and did that for 8 years until the stress got to me (at one point training to be district manager)

I decided to work with my hands instead
I went to Lincoln Technical Institute and got my EPA Universal Tech license in Htg/AC
spent two years in that field

I also along the way got engaged to a fantastic woman with a 4 yr old daughter
Been with her for six years
She has suffered from aortic valve replacement,cervical cancer,stroke and brain surgery during this time

Now I work from home repairing/building computers and I am hoping for a management position with Staples (just applied and dropped off resume for the resident technician position)

I am mostly self taught
Thomas Jefferson is one of my heroes.
I love the idea of the Renaissance man
But by no means am I an educated man.

Riser I am sorry you have a problem with me and my grammar
I really try to get along with everybody
If you felt a need to correct me that is fine but you should of done it in a PM
and not publicly embarass me
!
