2. Random thoughts.

I think He got a pizza, but I don't remember why.

Quite a few of us picked up on the "beer & travel money" theme. I remember that I did.

24. No. Impossible. Shocking idea.

Reincarnation is just a whacky lib concept, they say.

4. Random thoughts - I kinda miss that guy, lol. He wasn't your typical evil RW troll.

He was more a lost soul drifting about, NOT TAKING HIS MEDS.

His flameout was inevitable the way he was going.

15. I hope he's okay too.

His writings were rather fascinating, if not particularly rational. I can only hope he has some people in his life who care about him. I'll always be sorry that he flamed out here.

29. No, not evil - just a wiring problem, imo.

When the Admins posted the stuff that got him booted in DU2's ATA, it was definitely over the line. Rather shocking, actually. It made me feel very sad for him. I think he was very troubled, but never evil.

7. Yeah, I'm sad he's gone.

I always wondered if his account got hijacked or something. Or maybe it was just a medical issue. Anyway, too bad. I found him entertaining.

10. one of my all-time favorites

I still don't know if it was performance art. But I will never forget the character or the phrase.

I wish he would come back.

22. If it was performance art....

It was really, really tedious, crappy, obscure nonsensical performance art.


The guy was a nutcase, pure and simple.

If nothing else, I hope he got help.

11. And don't forget "many unique experiences."

I THINK that was him, anyway. And "unique" he certainly was.

As are we all, in one way or another.

I can't find the pic anywhere but on DU.




Cheers to Random Thoughts, wherever you are.

14. He was kind of charmingly goofy

Reading his posts I always thought he was on the inside of something I was on the outside of. Not sure I wanted to be in there with him but it was always entertaining.

And then all of a sudden he wasn't there anymore. Couple of months ago I saw a post that referred to beer and travel money, but I couldn't remember his name.

Looks like he flamed out big time. Sorry to see that because I'm sure he'd have some incomprehensible comments on current events.

18. Because of him, I now have a phobia of the word 'concept'

Not really, but his ramblings were certainly peppered with that word.

23. I always thought he was a Government Experiment that escaped.

Either that or a program that spit out random phrases running unchecked in someone's basement.

25. Random Thoughts reminded me of

someone who was once extremely bright, but who dropped 1, maybe 2 too many tabs of purple dragon back in 1968, and just never fully came back.
