1. Pure genius!
Satellites orbiting at 300 feet! I think it needs MORE CAPITALS, but the odd structure is a good touch. I give it 0.6 Timecubes. This is a guy to watch.

4. He even has a web site
http://www.ufoworkshop.0catch.com /

But you should read it soon because there is a law that anyone who talks about this stuff goes to jail!

10. Wow, I want to try this one!:
"You should be able to go out in your back yard and build the equipment need to form a wormhole. Not only form a wormhole but be able to use it to manipulate gravity."

11. For $300 or less!
It sounds dangerous to me. Wormholes leading where? Do we really want to inflict Texans on remote parts of the galaxy?

12. Follow the link that says "I got pictures"
You will see the "upscale" mobile home with the foil over the windows and the "gently used" Ford Taurus in the background.

It is all made out of 2x4 boards, mirrors and bathroom mold. Yeah, the stuff that grows in your shower.

the "three sides" of "the two headed coin."

13. The health forum has been pretty funny lately
I think enough of us have complained about Dr. Antivax that he's now the official forum chew toy. I've insulted him six ways from Sunday, as has Coz, and none of our posts have been deleted.

I especially liked his driver's license photo.

15. I'm sure he'll be back
He/they seem to post in spurts. He doesn't even get much support from the woos anymore.

9. OMG!!! 'Manipulating gravity'!
What a beautiful piece of pure woo.

There is a song I came across somewhere about a woman who marries a foolish man from Texas, and comments, "You can lead a horse to water/ But you cannot make it drink./ You can talk sense to an idiot/ But you'll never make him think!" Referring to this theorist perhaps?

17. UFO,s, 9/11 MIHOP, and hidden energy sources
If there were an award for the most amount of crazy woo, in one post (a WOOZY, I suppose) this guy would win, HANDS DOWN.
Hmm..maybe we should use WOOZY as a code word for "batshit insane post"..... :rofl:

18. We could have our own WOOZY awards
I guess it would have to involve other sites oe boards so as to not 'call out' others, it would probably get locked or deleted if we linked to posts here.

21. Chapter two is here and it's just sad

I'm amazed at how fast that went from hilarious to pathetic.

26. This is really sad
He thinks his posts are being "kicked off the net" by them. And notice that his "replies" bear no relation to the posts he's replying to. What's the state of psychiatric care in Texas? The poor guy clearly needs help. I just hope he gets it before he's hit by one of those satellites orbiting at an altitude of 4 feet.

28. This guy lives 15 miles from Abilene TX
Which has two "state-of-the-art" hospitals. (I have done work in both of them) The help is available but he has to look for it.

There is also a large Air Force Base in Abilene (Dyess AFB) with B1B bombers and lots of helicopters (really). That might lend to his condition.

I googled his name and found a lot of interesting (read: comic) stuff. From the dates of his writing, it appears he is going down hill fast. His earlier works were almost coherent, but now...
