Why is it considered virtuous to work like a slave all of your life when you
really don't have to. Just don't get married, don't procreate, don't buy a
house and a new car, etc. It is really quite simple, but most men are fools
and live lives of quiet desperation.

I'll make you a deal, I'll post all the messages to ARBR that I want you to

Verbiage requires facility and intellect requries that you think???
You make no sense. One cannot think without intellect. Since you
obviously don't realize that, you must be devoid of intellect. Perhaps
that is why you verbiage make no sense. Lie I said before. Intellect
is requirement for intelligible vervbiage. Your replies just get worse
and worse.

Gee Eddie, who's said virtuous?
It's not called virtuous, it's called rewarding.

I got married, had three sons, bought a house, have new cars, new bikes,
big ass TV,
big ass computer, and other stuff you don't care about, oh yeah, and stuff
for the kids as well.
Started my own business, run my own show, wife started her own business,
runs her own show, make our own lives, ran races, studied martial arts,
teach tai chi,
write, ride bikes. Oh and by the way, we started with zero, no family
money or connections,
no outside help, no special talents except the brains with which we were
born.
It's nice to feel plugged into the world, productive, active and successful.
Saves me having to call myself "the great" and hide my lack of self esteem
by trolling
in newsgroups and calling people names like a preadolescent.

People are generally surrounded by those like themselves and if you find
yourself surrounded
by " characters who are idiots, jerks and assholes" chances are you qualify
for inclusion in that
very same group. Of course since you have imposed yourself on this group
rather than the other
way around those in alt.bike.whatever don't meet that description.

She and I lived in Minneapolis for a few years and the people there tend to
be very nice;
generous, polite and kind. I guess they've been too nice to straighten you
out or is it that
you only share the obnoxious part of your psyche from the secure anonymity
of usenet?
I'm glad though that you've chosen not to marry or procreate, it would
bother me a bit to
know that you'd inflicted yourself on human beings. This is really a better
spot for you
since you are always just a mouseclick away from oblivion.

It is you, who needs to desperately stop defending Vandy, he is capible

JP is the upwardly mobile idiot who thinks himself successful because he did
not starve to death like the savages in Africa regularly do. I have nothing
but contempt for him and all his so-called accomplishments. His piffling
"production" would not be "rewarding" to me in the slightest. He is the
quintessential materialist. I feel sorry for the poor slob.

Minnesotans are the biggest jerks in the world bar none! Most of the time I
am ashamed to be from such a fouled up state. The one thing I would like
most to do in his world is to get my hands around the throat of Garrison
Keillor and choke that stupid son of a ***** to death. To hell with him and
his prairie home companion. And most especially to hell with any who think
like him.

I am not so much defending Vandeman as I am attacking Curtiss for being such
an all-around jackass. You are right on the edge of falling into that
category yourself. Please put your brain into gear before you post.

When you reference me, then post to ARBR. How God Damn likely is it that you
think I will ever reference a nonentity like you? Also, note the subject

There's no such thing as cyber reality. Everybody knows that.
Hell, li'l Billy or Bobbie or Abner or Poindexter or whatever
the 'R' stands for, that's an oxymoron. You should be intimately
acquainted with that word/phrase.

And just FYI, I'm from and living on Planet Earth, where I'm
currently groovin' to tunes by PF (some Syd Barrett stuff on
Umma Gumma, The Screaming Blue Messiahs, Yes [including a
spirited rendition of 'And You And I', off a pirated tape
of one of their live tour visits], Led Zep III, some arcane
Jethro Tull (Under Wraps, etc) and some weird Brian Eno stuff.
So I guess I'm actually slightly hovering over Planet Earth
a couple of feet.

But tomorrow I'll have my feet firmly planted on Planet Earth,
while you'll still be ... you. Good luck with that.

I'll also be hoping to get some work in from the employment
agency for which I work, and maybe make enough money to live
on better than bannock, oatmeal and rice, and maybe make
August rent. Y'see, I know all about reality.
It sucks sometimes.

Anyways, the situation is hopeless but not serious.


cheers, & good rides,
Tom

No, I don't want to post to ARBR, so I'll post where I want to. I agree

You can post to Timbuktu for all I care, but if you want an answer, then you
will have to post to ARBR. I only occasionally look in on RBM when I feel
like slumming with the hoi-polloi and other assorted slobs like you.
