A new LOW even for Stephen Poole

For anyone who still thinks this jerk has some human characteristics

So if Stephen Poole is evil for a joke pic then Im guessing many of the people here who hope everyone dies from Y2K are the same as him.

Paul Milne several weeks ago said to the extent that he was glad that Harlan Smith died because he was a polly.

Just don't get caught in a breeze because the wind just whistles from one ear to another.

Actually, what he said was that he was glad Harlan was no longer able to harm people. There are many ways Harlan could have stopped harming people. It just happens that his dying was the way it happened in this case.

I've stayed out of the Poole bashing, but the asshole has hit a new low. I wonder how funny those unfortunate folks who have lost everything think that "joke" is.

I'd like to bitch slap that jerk-off.

Uncle, I see why you'd like to bitch-slap that jerk-off. I'd like to knee him in the goolies, myself.

This is Poole's idea of humor. A photo of the NC floods is entitled, "Dweezilor remediates the Y2K problems at a plant near Greenville, NC." A balloon from one of the flooded buildings reads: "Oh man!!! My buddies at CSY2K ain't gonna BELIEVE this one! I set the network date to 02-29-00 and the lights went out! And there's water EVERYWHERE! Hey!!! Where'd everybody go?"

And this person calls himself a Christian? Poole, you scurrilous codpiece, send a donation to help these poor people immediately:

Salvation Army, P.O. Box 241808, Charlotte, NC 28224-1808. Mark the check "Floyd Relief."

Poole is a worthless disgusting piece of Polly filth for making a joke out of other's suffering. I look forward to the day when we can watch him die painfully because he was too stupid to prepare.

And so if a doomer died then I can claim gladness at his/her death because they were going to bankrupt people?

And gilbert, nice to see that you proved my above point on Milne.

-- MrWayCool (wow@cantbelieveit.com), September 23, 1999.

Obviously he doesn't live in Eastern NC. Don't think he should visit soon, either.

I would like to believe his point of view that nothing much is wrong or will happen. My instincts are telling me otherwise.

Suppose you are on an airplane that has several experienced pilots. Suddenly the instruments start showing some kind of anomaly. The pilots all disagree: Is it serious? Will the plane crash? What exactly are the instruments saying?

Now, all these pilots are very smart people, and very experienced, yet they have diametrically opposed views of whether anything is wrong with the plane, or if it is, whether it's serious.

Oh, and there is no place to land the thing. It has to keep flying constantly.

You're the passenger. How comfortable are you? What do you do?

You start making a parachute!

One remark I must make to Poole: There is nothing immoral about being armed. The morality or lack thereof come with the use, not the mere posession, of a weapon. He is a Christian, yet Christianity spread throughout the world largely because Europeans used firearms. Christianity and Islam are the very archetypes of religion spread by force. So why the jitters over guns?

Would you care for some cheese with your whine?

If you cannot take it, please do not dish it out. It is disappointing (putting it mildly) to think that you suppose yourselves to be: 1) the saviours of society; and 2) the people from whom the human race will spring after we polly's are all dead.

If you and your progeny represent all who survive, then death is a welcome alternative.

Just keep painting with that wide brush AR, I wonder if "All blacks are the same." is another of your misguided beliefs? Hmmm? Is it possible to tell one Asian from another? Or are they all "gooks" to you?

The consistency of idiots may be the only constant in the universe.

Someone stated that engineering is a contest between scientists (attempting to develop idiot-proof systems), and the universe (which is improving idiots). They concluded the universe is winning. This forum should be Exhibit A.

Well, since BOTH of us post to this forum, and because WE are also part of the universe, one would have to conclude...

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeed@yahoo.com), September 24, 1999.

Someone suggested that Andy Ray is really Stephen Poole. I think they may be right. So, "Andy Ray," as you sit in your nice dry, comfortable abode with all modern conveniences, dashing off what you consider screamingly witty ripostes, have you made a donation to the Floyd disaster victims who have nothing but fear, uncertainty, doubt and misery? If not, why not?

-- Old Git (anon@spamproblems.com), September 24, 1999.

...that you are an idiot.

Wassup AR? Not so quick on the draw that time eh? No quick witty response?

And yes, I know that it would include me. But that's a given, where's your humble pie?
