Yep, not quite midnight yet (where I am, anyway).  Just realized today was the anniversary of this thread.

My how it has grown

––––––––––––––––––––
We really, really need a tacked thread that explains all the "ARFCOM-isms" of the site, so we don't have to answer questions about Heat, AROCK, acronyms, etc. every bloody week.

So here's a drawing board.  Hopefully we can get all the facts collected here so someone can draft a much more eloquent thread to tack to the top of the forum that will remain the ultimate reference for these matters in the future.

Here's a start, edited with works in progress.

––––––––––––––––––––-

87 - Popularized by ARFCOM member MarkM as an answer to all stupid questions.  "How many mags do I need? 87!"  "How many rds of ammo should I have? 87!"  "How many guns do you have? 87!"  Its origin is often incorrectly attributed as "being one less than 88" (88 standing for HH - as H is the 8th letter of the alphabet - meaning 'Heil Hitler').

9mm vs. .45ACP - An argument so old that it pre-dates dinosaurs.  An argument so beaten down that even Rodney King thinks he got it easy.  The general answer is "Get Both" (see below), but a more real-world answer is "While shot-placement is the most important aspect of defensive shooting, both cartridges are capable of penetrating 12" of ballistic gelatin, and are considered good for self-defense."

Acronyms & Abbreviations - An extended list of these commonly used on the site can be found Here.

And so it begins... - An overused phrase found most frequently in threads about alleged or proven government abuse, or sarcastically in threads on events of unimportant or hysterical subject matter.  Its overuse has, under ARFCOM laboratory conditions, enabled the ability to falcon punch someone via TCP/IP –– use at your own risk.

ARFCOM Curse - A site-specific euphamism for divorce. Threads with this in the title usually progress into a sort of "ARFCOM Center for Lessons Learned" tutorial. Actions recommended usually end up being some combination of drunkenness, promiscuity, prayer, and serious spiritual reflection after completely removing firearms from your place of residence "right fucking now".

Arfpocalypse Now - An, as of yet unfunded, major motion picture event epitomizing the wet dream of every ARFCOMer, and many of the ARFCOM-isms on this list.  The original can be found Here, and its sequel Here

AROCK - A former member who earned the ire of ARFCOM by attempting to screw with another member's employment and livelihood and shall forever bear the stain of infamy.

Babnanas - It doesn't matter if you've been an active and participating ARFCOMer for 8 long years.  It doesn't matter if you have almost 12,000 posts under your belt.  If you post a detailed account of an alleged event involving law enforcement (in a publicly available area of the website, no less) then, after you are pressed for details or if someone states they may verify your claim, do not send site staff an IM threatening legal action against AR15.com.  Your account will be permanently locked on the spot, and you will only be remembered for your typo at the beginning of it all.

Blading at 45 / DISENGAGE! / Massive Adrenaline Dump - Perhaps the most memorable WalMart thread on ARFCOM, where an employee of the store attempted to disarm a member who was purchasing ammo.  The member wrote about his experience, and what he did (blading away at 45 degrees) what was on his mind (DISENGAGE!) and what he was going through (Massive Adrenaline Dump).  It has become recognized as the pinnacle of all WalMart threads, setting the bar for generations to come.

Boating Accident - A common tradgety amongst ARFCOM members resulting in the loss of a gun collection.

Box O' Truth - See Old_Painless

Chili - Always the subject of debate regarding the inclusion, or exclusion, of beans.  Perhaps the only subject capable of fracturing ARFCOM's solidarity and triggering civil war.

David Olofson - An ARFCOM member who loaned his AR15 to a friend to shoot at a range.  While at the range, the rifle malfunctioned several times, firing more than one shot when the trigger was pulled and subsequently jamming.  ATF caught wind of this and seize the firearm for investigation.  The rifle was outfitted with a three-position selector switch that, on its own, does not make the firearm a machine gun.  ATF tested the firearm and ruled that it was NOT a machine gun.  Upon this ruling, a subsequent test was ordered using cartridges with significantly softer primers.  This time the AR15 did fire more than one cartridge per trigger pull (which for those of you knowledgeable about AR15 mechanics and operation, are aware that a primer strike occurs every time the bolt closes - thus why the ammo is manufactured with hard primers) and a ruling was reissued declaring it an illegal machine gun.  David Olofson stood trial and was convicted, as there is no provision in the machine gun ban legislation for malfunctioning firearms.  He was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison.  David's story is one which should enrage all firearm owners.  The case essentially tells the public two things - (1) If your legal firearm malfunctions and fires more than one shot per trigger pull, you're a felon, and (2) the ATF can legally modify either the firearm in question, or the testing parameters of the firearm, in order to obtain the desired result.  In any other instance, this would be considered "tampering with evidence".  More about this grotesque abuse of government power against David can be found here.  A copy of the brief can be found here

Deej86 - ARFCOM Member who remembers everything.  EVERYTHING.  He even authors Happy Birthday threads in the Team Member Only forum for team members whose birthday's he's aware of.  Courtroom stenographers, cameras and voice recorders would be obsolete if Deej86 could be cloned.  This would be counter-productive, though, as while each Deej86 clone would be able to remember which clone number he is, he would be unable to tell all the others apart, thereby invalidating his ability to remember "everything".

Dinner Pictures - Pictures posted by ARFCOM members depicting their dinner, which are then rated on a 1-10 scale; 1 being absolute failure (required upon absence of meat), 10 being absolute win (usually proportional to the amount of bacon used).  Often dinner pictures will involve chili, which will guarantee initial disagreement escalating into the deployment of the ARFCOM Site Staff Riot Team, applying ban/lock time as necessary.

DK-Prof/Goose/Duck/Dresser/The-Flying-Dutchman/etc. - A beaten-to-death inside joke originating from a thread about a furry convention by kitwulfen, DK-Prof shared a story a former colleague told him about a sex act involving a goose and a dresser drawer.

Eric the Hun (Wayne Cobb) - For those who remember Eric The Hun ("ETH"), they say they can only hope to be half the man he was.  ETH would regularly meet members from/in the area at his family's farm in central Texas, and graciously hosted several ARFCOM get-togethers which included a great deal of shooting, drinking (after the line was cold), and "general asshattery". Wayne and his beloved Beagle Scooter held court in the bunkhouse where he made his world famous Windex Margaritas.  He never met a stranger, he treated everyone as a life-long friend and was willing to give you the shirt off of his back. Several of the Dallas/Fort Worth crew and others got together and put together an AR15 in DeWalt yellow, and presented to him at a Hun Farm Shoot in a DeWalt toolbox. It was the first time anyone had seen Wayne speechless. He was a prolific poster on ARFCOM with well over 10k posts and was a thoughtful voice of reason in the midst of the insanity in General Discussion (GD). He always signed off his posts with a witty and salient missive in the midst of his moniker.  It was one of the darkest days on ARFCOM when his brother informed us all that Wayne had succumbed to a massive heart attack and had died.  (Written courtesy of wiggy762 - on page 3 - with some edits made).  His Memorial page can be found here.

EXPcustom - An ARFCOMer of very few words, and even less thoughts.  Every single post of his fall into one of two categories –– (1) Anything and everything to come out of California is "big city thinking" (no matter how absurd the subject), or (2) "<Insert non-California noun here> ".  Probably the first troll in the history of the internet to pester people by inflating his ego instead of antagonizing other posters.

Fire on a Plane - ARFCOM member TREETOP had an unfortunate experience with airport security regarding the legality of having a plastic AK47 stock in his carry-on luggage.  While arguing with security about this, another security agent rummaging through his backpack managed to ignite a butane-fuled soldering iron and lay it on some mail in the backpack.  The luggage subsequently ignited, causing the agent to hysterically accuse him of attempting to smuggle fire onto the airplane (as though he was some kind of modern day Prometheus).  Story can be found here (Archive Link)

foing - A famous typo from former user shaunofthedead whose last known presence on ARFCOM was in a thread he created, asking if he should go or not to an orgy a stranger invited him to.  His last post was "fuck it im foing".  He has never been seen since.

Freakzilla Incident, The - It started out as a declaration of innovation.  ARFCOMer Freakzilla, created a thread on April 25th, 2010, announcing that he had invented something new for the AR15 rifle.  He claimed that, in his own words, "it's something that Eugene should have thought of" (For the uneducated - "Eugene" refers to Eugene Stoner - inventor of the AR15 rifle platform).  With much anticipation, conjecture, and skepticism, accusations of trolling were rebutted with claims about patent application submission, prototype development, testing, and - in the words of Borat - "Great success!"  With all the hype and build-up the thread was generating, you'd think Freakzilla was an employee of Apple's marketing division.  The day finally came, and the investion "that Eugene should have thought of" was revealed in a YouTube video –– a bump of what appeared to be J-B Weld on the inside of the dust cover.  The purpose?  To indicate an out-of-battery Bolt Carrier Group.  Expected MSRP - ~$50.  The doubters wept in hysterics.  The believers ignited signal fires across the many mountains of the world, calling for the tarring, feathering, crucifixion, hanging, drawing, quartering, and running out of town on a rail (in that order) of Freakzilla.  As the dust settled, the aftermath was made clear.  Many were disappointed, many more were entertained, and someone bought Freakzilla a Team Membership.

Fudd - Slang term (originating from the fictional character Elmer Fudd) typically applied to a "sporting" gun owner; eg; a person who typically only own bolt action rifles or break-action shotguns for hunting or shotgun sports who believes the Second Amendment protects hunting rifles rather than political tools of last resort. These people also generally treat owners/users of so called "non sporting" firearms like semiautomatic handguns or semiautomatic rifles with military origins or features with unwarranted scorn or contempt, despite the differences being based on a cosmetic, rather than functional basis. Additionally, these persons often state that the only purpose of "non sporting" firearms is use by "terrorists" or criminals (see "Zumbo"); their behavior is exemplified by a willingness to sacrifice another law abiding gun owner's weapon of choice to the anti-gun lobby to protect their own.

Get Both - The quintessential ARFCOM solution to all "Should I get (Item1) or (Item2)?" threads.

Heavy 6 - Nickname for an obese man depicted with an MP5, apparently "storming" while training, which soon because the subject of infinate Photoshops.  One such Photoshop depicted Heavy 6 sneaking up on a man hunting in the woods, causing a commenter to say "Watch out!  You've got Heavy on your 6!" –– Thus the nickname "Heavy 6" was born.

Herby Curby - A trashcan with wheels for ease in transporting to the curb in front of one's home for pick-up.  Infamously stolen from ARFCOM member SWIRE's curb by his neighbor.  Hilarity ensued over discussion of how to deal with the neighbor, retrieve the herby curby, and rig it to prevent further theft.

I Am Legend - A thread (found here) started to commemorate the impending release of the movie by the same name, depicting many members crawled up into their bathtubs with AR15's and dogs, imitating the similar scene from the movie.  It later evolved into including "tactical chickens", ammo forts, loofah-lugs (as opposed to bayonet lugs), and war faces ARFCOM didn't know women were capable of making.

JDessel - ARFCOM member who actually found Lootie and proved it.

Justinwb - An erratic, well known and somewhat liked member of ARFCOM who turned into an infamous and notorious troll by faking his own death.  He posed as his mother creating a thread informing ARFCOM about his death.  His loss was mourned and he was entered into the ARFCOM Memorial Hall.  Shortly thereafter he authored another thread saying that he was "posting from [his] blackberry from the afterlife".  ARFCOM compassion justifiably turned into rage and he was perma-banned with extreme prejudice.

LaRue_Tactical - (Mark) LaRue is an Industry Partner with ARFCOM, and a domestic manufacturer of high-quality firearm parts and accessories.  LaRue is widely known and acclaimed for reasons beyond his company's products; among these a monthly giveaway he runs for ARFCOM Team Members - the winner receiving practically an entire rifle setup, as well as his financial contributions in support of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  His "private" forum can be found here.

Lootie - Nickname coined for the individual depicted in the infamous shot of a black man "rescuing" numerous bottles of Heineken in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

M16 Bolt Carrier in an AR15 - A thread (found here) which lasted six years discussing the legality of putting an M16 Bolt-Carrier into an AR15.  A concise summary and explanation of the issue can be found here

McUZI Rant - Perhaps the most epic,scalding, and lambasting rant anyone has ever been subjected to.  Member McUZI let loose with this rant on member Garandman with such a tirade that Garandman was unable to show his face afterwards without his verbal-beat-down being mentioned.  Here, for posterity sake, is the McUZI rant in all its glory:

Garandman, your incessant posting of sanctimonious bullshit and self righteous nonsense proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that indeed sometimes the slowest sperm does fertilize the egg... While you may fancy yourself some sort of a "Christian”, I am sure Christ would gleefully leap off the nearest bridge in order to disassociate himself with your holier-than-thou crap. All I can think of when my eyes are burned with the continual lack of quality content of your posts, bible thumping horseshit, and moderator ass-kissing is that another 4 minutes of my life could be potentially wasted should I make the mistake to read whatever you have written. You have dirty clothes, BO, bad breath, and I am quite confident that should one open your top dresser drawer, it would contain skid marked underwear. Your children will grow to be nothing more then felons or beggars due to their genetic lineage. Likely, even your car is a smog machine, and pollutes the earth like you pollute this site. You are a festering infected boil on the ass of gun ownership, and Christianity; with the apparent intelligence of an autistic gnat with downs syndrome. You are the type of weenie that causes people of mutilate themselves, trying to escape the emotional pain that people as worthless as you even exist. Knowing that you are a gun owner, I am strongly leaning towards supporting testing for firearms. The fact that a man who can’t even grasp the insane hypocrisy that exists in your constant barrage of self-sainthood is allowed to own a habiliment of destruction is a fucking social calamity, and needs to be stopped. You cry like a woman, and you have a night-light to fend off boogie men. You dress in drag, and you listen to ABBA. I am guessing that early in life, Hitler encountered the Jewish version of "Garandman”, thus explaining his future actions. I wish you nothing less then painful pancreatic cancer. Stones in your shoes on long walks, and blisters on your ass as you sit down to shit. Sleepless nights, broken hearts, hurricane damage to your home, sadness, pain, misery, "Out of the Closet” outspoken homosexual children, traffic tickets, loss of loved ones, felony convictions for crimes you didn’t commit, weight gain, stubbed toes, sprained limbs, damage to the transmission of your car on the ONE DAY you really needed it, always having "something in your eye”, having to smell other peoples farts in elevators, long waits at traffic lights, getting laid off from your job, medical bills, having a squib load, then firing a round after it, holes in your socks, underwear that’s too tight, sexual impotence, limb amputation, or any other possible iniquitous event that could harm you as bad as your mere presence harms humanity as a whole. I believe elimination of inutile cocksuckers such as you could bring everyone on this planed of differing views together, for the sole purpose of your eradication. You are living proof that humans can impregnate rodents. I fucking hate you.

mfingar - Member of Team LaRue (See "LaRue_Tactical" above), mfingar is to be acknowledged for two significant contributions to ARFCOM.  The first is, perhaps, the longest running, unarchived thread to date or possibly in site-history –– Cutting Gun Case Foam.  Posted on August 14th, 2006, the thread remains active and unarchived at the time of this entry's addition (November 25th, 2009) due to its incredible usefulness, clarity and simplicity of instruction.  The second contribution mfingar is to be acknowledged for, is in fact an ongoing contribution, with some of the funniest, most professional looking Photoshops to ever entertain ARFCOMers.

mhoffman - ARFCOM member most well-known for a (de)motivational poster of his I Am Legend bathtub picture, captioned with the ATF Form 4473's question 11.f, asking the buyer if they have ever been committed to a mental institution or declared mentally unstable. (Pic)

Napoleon_Tannerite (aka: N_T) - Prior to his ban, most widely known for having actually thrown his AR15 down a driveway.  It was actually an outdoor range, but the video he made was done clearly to reference this phrase.

Nuke Boy - A previously obscure poster, CW135657 was just your average ARFCOMer until fate intervened.  A simple request, CW135657 simply asked that someone Photoshop a mushroom cloud on the horizon in the picture he provided, depicting himself gazing off into the distance.  While the first few posts delivered what he requested, the next 19+ pages - though elevating him to ARFCOM fame - served as a poignant (yet amusing) reminder of the unwritten ARFCOM rule "Never post a picture of yourself, requesting a Photoshop.  It will not go as you intended."

Nuke it from orbit - Aside from being, truly, the only way to be sure, it is an often used (para)phrase from the 1986 movie Aliens, commonly found in threads about liberals, Sarah Brady (and all things Brady related), Democrats, zombies, chupacabra and any other actual or fictitious threat to ARFCOM as a whole, or its members.

OMG IT SPINS - The now Internet-wide Picture is of ARFCOM member "Karma".  It's origin is of revenge by his wife, ARFCOM member "SP1Girl", for him placing a game-camera in the bathroom.  Archived thread

Old_Painless - A well known, knowledgeable and highly contributive member of ARFCOM, O_P (as it's often abbreviated) runs The Box O' Truth, where various firearm and ammo "urban legends" are put to the test.  Results are well documented and photographed.  Alongside updating his website with these tests results, he authors a thread in General Discussion (GD) and provides the results there as well.  O_P is highly regarded for his knowledge in all areas, especially on the topic of firearms.

Plane on a Treadmill - Origins from the question (paraphrased) "Will a plane on a treadmill take off if the plane is traveling forward at the same speed as the treadmill in the opposite direction?"  If combined with the "Chili - With or without beans?" question, it has the potential of causing ARFCOM to divide by zero and collapse into itself, becoming the first black hole on the internet to suck the rest of it down along with it.  The answer is that - since a plane generates thrust via the engines mounted on the wings, and not from its wheels - the airplane WILL take off, despite the increasing speed of the treadmill.

Range Report - Aside from instances where it actually is a Range Report, it refers to ARFCOM Member niceguymr who went to a bar, picked up a woman, brought her home and really did SIIHPAPP (see below). The thread was originally titled "I just siihpapp", went 4 or 5 pages of "IBTL" (In Before The Lock) before he edited it to "The Range Report" and took down the pics. Everyone who quoted him edited out the links to the pics and the whole thing was covered up before any mods or staff saw it. The thread was never locked, sits in the archive, and is the stuff ARFCOM legends are made of.

RebelGray AKA Ryan Anderson AKA Amir Abdul Rashid - Former ARFCOMer who posted under the name RebelGray, was a member of the US Army National Guard, and an M-1 tank crew member with the 81st Armor Brigade in Fort Lewis, WA, that was about to deploy to Iraq when he was captured, charged, and convicted for attempting to spy for Al-Qaeda.  He is sentenced to five concurrent life-terms.  Further details of his treason.

Ronmann - A banned ARFCOM member and author of weird threads such as "pantsed by gangsta thugs" "my buddys a survivalist" "lost $300 ar the casino today" "me and girlfriend have it out again" "revenge on my boss also" and inventor of the "beaver chop" (in an apparently deleted thread) - "and let me clarify something for once and for all;it was not a beaver chop it was a reverse uppercut karate chop to the twat.a move that i developed in my home dojo.do you guys savy?".

Ryan's Steakhouse Story - A story about an ARFCOM member's visit to Ryan's Steakhouse.  So hysterical, that no summary can be offered, and the consumption of any liquid while reading is absolutely prohibited.  You'll laugh, or your money back.

Seeing Eye Cat (SEC) - Reference of the continuing tales of ARFCOM member Piccolo's adventures with his cat.  The name originates from a story where Piccolo spray-painted a white dowel rod with a red tip, put the cat on a leash, and wore sunglasses to go see a movie.  After driving there and parking, he began playing the role of a blind man with his Seeing-Eye Cat.  Nobody questioned his ability to drive, or see a movie, since he was blind.  Nor did they question the concept of a Seeing-Eye Cat.  A collection of stories can be found here

Sgt. Sugarcookie - A morbidly obese character frequently portrayed in camouflage, carrying a firearm with sunglasses and a helmet.  He is from the internet, and he is here to help us.  Rumor is that he is secretly ARFCOM user Aimless.

SgtAR15 - A member who earned the praise and affection of ARFCOM for his repeated threads depicting various scenes and scenarios using action figures.

Shower cookie - Member Shoes created a thread depicting him leaning out from behind a shower curtain, with a cookie in one hand and a CETME in the other, glancing off-frame with a concerned look on his face.

SIIHPAPP - "Stick It In Her Pooper And Post Pics", a phrase which can be found in almost any thread requesting dating/marriage/woman advice, is guaranteed to piss off all three female ARFCOM members, and attract the immediate attention of every member online to any "Range Report" threads (which itself is guaranteed to result in either a ban, or mass disappointment).

SniperWolfe and EladFlow - The two "original" lifetime members of ARFCOM, who posted unintentionally homoerotic pictures of themselves shaving each others' heads in order to earn a membership.

Spike's Lower Incident - Refers to this thread where ARFCOM user ARs4EVER, presumably either off his medication or under the severe influence of alcohol (both?) complained about Industry Partner Spike's Tactical's AR15 lower receiver, stating that it was not Milspec.  Only three responses by Spike's and 4 1/2 hours later, did ARs4EVER decide that working with Spike's to address his complaint was more work than hacking the receiver into four pieces, taking a picture, posting it into the thread, and expecting that a point would be made (beyond a profound display of his own incompetence).

Squatdog - Nobody can take a full power-shot from him.

StyerAUG - A much liked member with a great Class 3 collection, old movie fetish, and epic disregard for the CoC. Banned for posting Koran TP pics. Banned again once he returned for trying to sell his 50,000+ ARFcom identity on the EE.  Finally perma-banned for trying to advertise and sell in GD without a dealer account.

Taisch - Member of an Airsoft forum whose dress-up photos were the ridicule of ARFCOM for over a week.  The ordeal took an unexpected turn when the Taisch actually joined ARFCOM, and posted photographic evidence that it was, indeed, him.  A Team Membership was purchased for him, and he has since disappeared, unseen since.

Throw it down the driveway - An expression born from the auspice that performing such act on one's AR15 would give it a "battle worn" look.  The comment is usually found in threads where people proudly show off new firearm acquisitions.

Tman - A regular contributor/assistant to The Box O' Truth, and a close friend of Old_Painless, T-man has passed on.  Old_Painless's eulogy for T-man can be found here

Walmart Threads - Threads written about a user's experience at a WalMart.  Hilarity usually ensues.

Wandering Duck Thread: An ARFCOM member had a girlfriend with a female roommate who was overly protective of her stuffed animal - a plush duck that could be bought at any Walgreens in the country. The ARFCOMer's girlfriend stole it and took photos of it doing odd things to make the roommate mad. Eventually, the duck was shipped to members across the nation, along with other ARFCOMers purchasing similar ducks, and taking pictures of it doing things all over the country.  The ARFCOM version of "Flat Stanley" emerged, and the duck - along with a photo album of its journeys - were returned a year later.

wchiang - An ARFCOM member who was identified by Geraldo Rivera on national television as the perpetrator of the Virginia Tech shootings in the immediate aftermath, but prior to the release of details like (1) the shooter's name, and (2) whether the shooter was still alive or not.

What gun did Al Pacino use in "Heat"? –– The FN FNC-80

Zumbo - A now infamous firearm magazine column writer who wrote about using the AR15 for hunting, calling it a "terrorist rifle".  The fallout was nothing short of spectacular, involving a retraction of the statement and advertisers abandoning his publisher.  (A short, poignant, video explanation of the incident)

––––––––––––––––––––-

Anyone else have anything to contribute, add to, or clairfy?

Let's get the ball rolling on this so we can finally settle all this.

Origins of "87"


I believe there was a member that answered any question with "88". And since "88" is a racist type thing (eight letter of the alphabet is h, hh meaning heil hitler). 88 was considered a "no-no", and "87" was born.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Heads up

You guys could save me a lot of time by authoring the recommended entries yourself.  I could just copy/paste.

It would also be better since we'd have numerous people contributing and editing the entries, instead of relying on me and my swiss-cheese memory

Oh yeah, I've also been around since 2006, so some earlier stuff might require the input of older hands

markm answered every assinine question with "87"...not all questions indescriminately.


OP:

Posting IBN_T used to be a bannable offense.

You forgot the legendary squatdog thread.

"Can Ye Smell It" from the overzealous poster in the tech forums who finally got to play with his daddy's AR15.

"you can't see out the bun" was epic as was "tercher" and others from another legendary thread.

Throwing your rifle down the driveway and Napolean_Tannerite:
Apparently, he dragged his new rifle down a rock driveway to give it the "used" look. The criticizing never stopped. Within five replies to one of his threads, there was always a "throw it down the driveway" quip.

In an earlier incarnation on ARFCOM I remember the orginal Mall Ninja thread, I think it started over on GlockTalk.



Then there was McUZI.  McUZI had an epic temper combined with an eloquency of insult bordering on genius.  Here is copypasta of one of his rants:









Garandman, your incessant posting of sanctimonious bullshit and self
righteous nonsense proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that indeed
sometimes the slowest sperm does fertilize the egg... While you may
fancy yourself some sort of a “Christian”, I am sure Christ would
gleefully leap off the nearest bridge in order to disassociate himself
with your holier-than-thou crap. All I can think of when my eyes are
burned with the continual lack of quality content of your posts, bible
thumping horseshit, and moderator ass-kissing is that another 4 minutes
of my life could be potentially wasted should I make the mistake to
read whatever you have written. You have dirty clothes, BO, bad breath,
and I am quite confident that should one open your top dresser drawer,
it would contain skid marked underwear. Your children will grow to be
nothing more then felons or beggars due to their genetic lineage.
Likely, even your car is a smog machine, and pollutes the earth like
you pollute this site. You are a festering infected boil on the ass of
gun ownership, and Christianity; with the apparent intelligence of an
autistic gnat with downs syndrome. You are the type of weenie that
causes people of mutilate themselves, trying to escape the emotional
pain that people as worthless as you even exist. Knowing that you are a
gun owner, I am strongly leaning towards supporting testing for
firearms. The fact that a man who can’t even grasp the insane hypocrisy
that exists in your constant barrage of self-sainthood is allowed to
own a habiliment of destruction is a fucking social calamity, and needs
to be stopped. You cry like a woman, and you have a night-light to fend
off boogie men. You dress in drag, and you listen to ABBA. I am
guessing that early in life, Hitler encountered the Jewish version of
“Garandman”, thus explaining his future actions. I wish you nothing
less then painful pancreatic cancer. Stones in your shoes on long
walks, and blisters on your ass as you sit down to shit. Sleepless
nights, broken hearts, hurricane damage to your home, sadness, pain,
misery, “Out of the Closet” outspoken homosexual children, traffic
tickets, loss of loved ones, felony convictions for crimes you didn’t
commit, weight gain, stubbed toes, sprained limbs, damage to the
transmission of your car on the ONE DAY you really needed it, always
having “something in your eye”, having to smell other peoples farts in
elevators, long waits at traffic lights, getting laid off from your
job, medical bills, having a squib load, then firing a round after it,
holes in your socks, underwear that’s too tight, sexual impotence, limb
amputation, or any other possible iniquitous event that could harm you
as bad as your mere presence harms humanity as a whole. I believe
elimination of inutile cocksuckers such as you could bring everyone on
this planed of differing views together, for the sole purpose of your
eradication. You are living proof that humans can impregnate rodents. I
fucking hate you.


McUZI





We commend garandman's almost philosophical
equanimity in the face of this withering assault.

There is also the hondaciv opossum thread, which has led to many references to opossum here.

He posted a description of an opossum and asked what the hell it was, hilarity ensued.

It needs Killswitch and Dusty_C: who they are, what happened to them

Shoes wasn't armed with a FAL

It needs a link to the abbreviations/webtalk thread/index.

My bad. I do remember somebody being banned for using 88 as a reply... That was when I wasn't a 'member' yet, just a lurker...
