yeah, the first sentence in, i knew who it was. that, plus his first name.
It seems like a joke to me, having become familiar with his unique sense of humor. Back when you had the ability to ignore people here I had put him on my list a couple of times because I thought he was just an insulting prick but in reading others responses to him (and through that his original posts) my appreciation of him grew. For example, one time I mentioned to someone here something about my plans to move to the West coast when I retire. Well, Jack honed in on the word plans and then he said For you?
and then made a list. I can only remember two of the things he put on it right now but they were 1. drinking milk, and 2. cell mitosis. How can you really be mad at that?! It gave me a good laugh and ever since I've been OK with the guy. I hope he was kidding. His post are usually fun to read.
