You never think Im joking, but this thread is essentially a joke, and my post is so utterly ridiculous and so obvious just the counter to it, that as I said, I cant imagine not realizing its satire.
Mind you, Im not saying its funny....Im just saying its meant to be dead pan humor, which admittedly is difficult to read, but in the context of this thread, with this title, and my post....and countless examples of you missing my dry humor in the past....how does that possibility not occur to you before responding, in the same drab, im from the 50's and dont get humor manner every single time?
As far as deluding yourself that I am actually serious the several times, you have missed these sarcastic quips...I honestly dont blame you at this point...and am almost willing to agree, that I indeed am always serious, and never joke around especially with a poster like BBS, in a thread like this, with a title like this, just so you dont realize exactly how little a sense of humor you must actually have to miss it so often....
Actually.....as I said before...you just miss it because you bring biased judgement of my personality and just miss the humor every time. Once again, all I can say is I like to change it up...believe it or not...but look through my posts at large, and you will see I jump from serious to joking very easily...and to some degree, consider AAFitz to be a character to some degree, which is why I suspect you misinterpret me very often...just as I misinterpreted you as overly christian and possibly a young earth creationist at one point.
The thing is, you told me you weren't, so I changed my faulty view and actually believed what you wrote....you should do the same...because of the many things I do in this forum, and the range is quite large, the one thing I dont really do is outright lie, because I really like to be honest....
Sure, ill mislead, antagonize, patronize, on occasion troll, but Im actually very honest if Im serious, and for the last time, Im telling you that I joke around a fucking lot, and its usually when the post is like this, in a thread like this, when its so stupid that I assume most will get the joke.
Also, its meant to be hard to tell, and to some degree...thats the joke. In this case its on you....sorry, once again.
A recent anecdote just for you John, just so you can understand my humor at a basic level....
I was just fixing a patio for my best customer, at her $8million (+/-$1mil)dollar home. She spilled some wax, and it wasn't all that easy to fix to the tune of about half a day. I told her, to genuinely make her feel better that, "at least she spilled it on the patio and not on her leg or something"....and then went on to say, that, "even though it would have been less work for me"...totally deadpan, with even a hint of aggrevation." Now, while you would have stormed in the house telling your husband that I was rude and complained about a few gratuitous hours of work, she laughed, because what I said was so utterly ridiculous, that it absolutely had
to be a joke, and while perhaps reckless on my part, it served its purpose.
My point is, Ill risk joking around with the best customer I ever had and possibly ever will have....so Ill sure as shit risk joking around with you fucktards...so be warned, and don't be so surprised next time.
And sure as shit dont take it personally, because I am pretty sure, that these forums are more or less, the most bullshit way of communicating with other human beings, and after many years, am quite positive nothing can be taken at face value, because without the benefit of a face...the communication is at least, ineffective. Its the reason I use so many damn words, because I cant just give you a subtle glance that would easily reassure you I was full of shit the whole damn time.
Also, if you check out my recent post in suggestions, youll understand that Im at a 3 right now.
