But Miss Scarlett, I'm afraid of cows!

Damn, I'm glad it's Friday!

I've actually seen cows running. Surprised me the first time I saw one chasing a truck pulling hay. All the other cows were just standing around or either chomping grass while this one brown heifer was chasing the feed.

Don't let them fool you. I watched a charlet jump a fence as tall as she was, from a stand still. There's unbeleivable power in those 'docile' creatures.
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

When I was a kid we used to play in the neighbors cattle feilds, and yes, they are not nearly as slow as they look, more than once I had to climb a tree.

I went into a pasture to pick shrooms one time and a whole herd came running towards me. Scared the shit out of me! :)

The thread title and the current thread topic are pretty funny when considered together.

Like the new sig Eyes! Another perfect example of how that company is run. Banning you is another feather in Byron's cap for the HLP!

Thanks. And the jerk won't even delete the name. If he's not going to re-activate it then he should go ahead and delete it and stop fluffing his membership numbers. It wasn't until after I asked him to be professional enough to answer the email that I received a reply about my request for a review on his decision. Some review. :roll:

How am I suppose to prove I'm not a sock puppet. I told him I was not. What does he want, a sign affidavit?

Eyes High little suspected what would happen to what she wrote:... And the jerk ... should go ahead and ... stop fluffing his membership ...

:shock:

That must be something he started after I was banned... :?
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Oh . . . it was, Chig. As a matter of fact I think it started specifically because you were booted. Something about "too salty," or somesuch. It's been so long; I can't remember anymore.

:clap: Nice signature, Eyes.

Byron's a dickhead.

Thanks MM.

And you are right. StarGazer was not a sockpuppet. She was me. And still is me on another reading forum.

now that we have managed to hijack SandRider's hijacked thread I have one little question... How's the TV still going Papa Bear?

sun's a comin' up and I'm awatchin' "Sir! No, Sir!" on LinkTV (9410 on yer DishTV)

(I've posted about this movie before, back when Link first got ahold of the rights and
began running it; 2005 documentary about the GI Movement, the antiwar movement
within the military during VietNam - the history that's been so twisted and buried
over the years, that most of these kids here have no idea what the reality was -
the massive, massive resistance within the military; Air Force officers not
forwarding bombing target information, the day they gave up trying to make us
take off the black armbands; and the public's real opinion -the Fort Hood
protest ... &etc.)
http://www.sirnosir.com/the_film/synopsis.html

also:
required reading for those under .... ohhh, let's say 37 ...
http://www.wintersoldier.com/index.php


A DishTV tech sent me an email saying, basically, "shit happens" ...
he seemed to assume it was due to maintenance routines, that retask
channel packages or something ... I kinda figgered that, tho ...

Didn't realise you were StarGazer, Eyes. You know that place is messed up (I mean despite the other evidence) when they can ban someone like you.

Thanks Cyn and sorry about fibbing in the other thread about not knowing if StarGazer had gotten a chance to respond (she didn't) but I was still trying to protect the identity just encase dunenovels would give her a fair chance. Well now I know better. My very first banning, and I wasn't even trying. :tissue2: :lol:

Yeah, you might as well. There's nothing going on over there except blazes of glory and SparrowsOfDune giving his extremely bland perspective in excruciating detail.

Thanks for the tip, just read a few reviews and they all support your opinion.
