Well, yeah, but I expect him to be consistent. Relentlessly consistent.
Consistent to the point of pathologic behavior even. Only a few days
ago, the Chinese were exploring the Moon with Marco Polo in the 13th
century, bringing cheese, dust, and syphillis back to a waiting world.
Now the Chinese are too stupid to find there way out of an egg roll. If
Tom starts flopping in the wind like a weather vane, it could lead to a
causal discontinuity in the fabric of space-time. Nobody wants that,
since it could lead to an American winning the TdF, again.

To be fair to Kunich, I don't think he was saying
the Chinese were dingbats, I think he was putting
those words in Robert Chung's mouth, or Chung's
desertation, more precisely. Kind of like the
"Why do you hate freedom?" rhetorical strategy.
Apparently, denying Marco Polo's trip (IIRC, he goes with
Win-Ny Poo to the East Pole to discover honey) is equal
in Kunich's mind to calling the Chinese stupid. But
being Tom, he manages to assign the words to Chung so
incompetently that you reasonably thought he was
claiming the thought for himself.

Relentless consistency in one way usually leads to whacky inconsistency
in others. The thing that's new here is that Tom's posting frequency has
gone up, making the discontinuities in his belief system more obvious.
And entertaining.

And spelled dessertation - something about the Chinese claiming to
have invented creme brulee. Whatever. Since the best creme brulee has
a coffee bean, not some berry, in the middle, they could at best
invented an inferior creme brulee.

Unless Marco and the Sixth Chinese Fleet also discovered Northern
Africa. Have to read the dessertation.

There's the implication right above in the quotation of yours. So don't cry

So selling public stock in a "company" without any assets, no intellectual
property and not even a business plan describing a method by which ANY of
these could be achieved isn't fraud? Funny that none of these companies
could have qualified for an honest bank loan.

Is it your belief that the dotcom bust was caused by dogwalk.com?

And was there ever a dogwalk.com (or dog-walk.com) to
begin with, or is that another one of Tom's alternate
realities?

Dunno about dogwalk.com, but VDB provides an optimal fitness programs for
dogs, kind of like a canine version of 53x12.com.

He gets credit for realizing that coffee doesn't have to be made 9
parts coffee bean, one part water, which made it way more popular (not
to mention, cheaper). Unfortunately, the French had already committed
to bad cofee at that point.

Damn, it may be a bad joke, but you'd think it wouldn't need
explanation. Unless you are unfamiliar with creme brulee, which does
make you an unfortunate.

I'm so glad I went back and read your post, TK.

Tom Kunich trying to invoke usenet rules to gain points. Yet more
Klassic Kunich. What a laugh. I mean really.

Your spelling and word form problems undercut your attempts to be an
authority on everything.

You're one of the few people who gets twitted on this, ever notice?
It's because you act like such an incredible jerk around here, Kunich.

Get it? --D-y

If it had been funny I'd probably have got the joke ;-)

I thought it was some exotic kind of irony that I hadn't been programmed
to understand.

at first I thought a Kunich AI was an oxymoron because it couldn't be an
artificial intelligence if programmed to mimic Kunich, but now I realize
this AI must stand for "Artificial Imbecile".

Nice to know rbr is in the forefront of Artificial Imbecile research
because I've never heard of it before.
