And why not ? There are three or four people worth meeting on this forum. I won't deny that I enjoy inciting anger here, but I have nothing to hide. Actually, if you would like to hear my voice, add me to your MSN account: fabriziopelucchi@hotmail.com.

We can enjoy a quick chat.

again, i have no problem with the way you post, but i'm afraid i wouldn't be able to stop laughing if you talked like that in real life.

i have no idea why you'd do it, but the internet is full of loons anyways, who knows what you're trying here. you're a mystery.

As for your last remark, it is doubtful that our paths would ever cross in "real" life. I don't pretend to be superior to anyone, but you do not quite fit the bill in terms of what I would consider a suitable acquaintance.

to me you're nothing more than an avatar. why would you wanna ruin the illusion by meeting me?

You would have probably filled two whole paragraphs of stuck-up mumbo-jumbo to express the same thing but hey, it takes all sorts.

You need to understand the difference between verbosity (i.e. using too many words) and word selection. PD arguably has a 'problem' with the former on MTF, but his word selection is usually fairly precise.

shut the fuck up!! this is about frankie. sorry buddyholly.

Re: In The Spotlight: buddyholly

The problem of primadonna is that he is insufficiently intelligent to realize that language's purpose is communication. One's language is adapted, within limits, to one's interlocutor's abilities. If he wishes to convey something to 90% of the people on these boards, he must select appropriate vocabulary and sentence structure.

His pretentious and peripatetic palaver not only alienates those who do not know his words nor are able to parse his sentences, but also exposes himself to the ridicule of those who do know his words and can analyze his sentences, because they know that behind the gossamer of words there is no substance.

His "veiled" reference to a NYC building inhabited by Germanophobic Jewish yuppies was most unsuccessful in evoking anything other than derision in my bosom and, undubitably, in Rrrainer's also.

Iīm retired. Donīt look too bad. I go to the gym, play tennis and in my heart I think Iīm still 18.

I am stuck in the 50īs and Buddy Holly is still the king of rock and roll to me.

The last great relationship was a 10-year relationship with an American teacher, who taught in school that successfully mixed the kids of foreign employees with the kids of local Dominican employees. I think it was the first school outside the US to be given full US accreditation. The school was run by nuns who enjoyed weekend trips to the casinos and merengue clubs of Haiti!! But back to the relationship: my girlfriend didnīt want to marry and get tied down to one place and neither did I. So it worked beautifully.

I went to university at Queenīs, Belfast; Imperial College, London and University of Toronto.

I am now retired. After a few years in Northern Manitoba, Canada I found I could live and work in the Caribbean, so the choice was a no-brainer. I chose the Caribbean.

I made a few trips to Crissier to worship at the temple of Girardet.

well, but you're implying he goes at me (or others) on purpose, in order to get us going. i think it's just his nature. the purpose thing plays a rather tiny role.

or he's doing it even more dead pan than you.

4. have you ever met an inuit in canada? did your job take you to northern countries as well (arctic circle, polar ice etc.) or was it just southern countries?

5. so you never touched a gun even though you've been with potentially dangerous tribes like the one in papua-new guinea?! what did you guys bring along to defend yourself, how did you know those people weren't gonna eat you?

6.
why honduras? were you there during the coup (this spring, i think)?

7. does costa rica experience any sort of gang violence, the kind of violence that's plaguing pretty much every other country in central america plus mexico, colombia and some others?

8. do you think quebec should be able to secede?

9. have you ever worked in a country where a civil war was going on (dom. rep maybe?)?

10. did you ever nick some minerals you had found?

You threw away a 10 year relationship just because neither could make compromises?

Frankie?

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.
