I recognize some of those characters from my days of slinging beer across
the bar at Seattle's Blue Moon Tavern.
One of favorite "Moon" stories is the day two guys in white coats came in
looking for a paranoid schizophrenic who had escaped from Western State
Mental Hospital. The bartender (not me) who was usually stoned on a low
dose of LSD asked if he could help the two gentlemen. They described the
person they were seeking. The bartender looked at them with his eyes
twinkling and said, "We have a couple of paranoid schizophrenics in here
right now, but none who match the description." The two white coats
turned and walked out.

See? You are already trained for the part, Bob! Did you read about
Callahan's drink pricing structure?
BTW, since it's a virtual bar, your pay will be virtual and we trust
you to pay your virtual taxes on your income. If you don't, there's
virtually nothing that can be done.
There's also a rather strict employment condition. If you're too drunk
to sling the drinks, we'll help out behind the bar - if that's okay
with you, of course. I hope that's not a deal breaker.
Not a problem. Our usual requirement for bartenders at the Moon was to
stay one drink behind the average consumption so that you could always say
that you were more sober than the average customer. Occasionally that
could get away from you so the one of the regular patrons would step in
and tend bar for awhile until the regular guy had a chance to either sober
up or get even more wasted. We only had to "86" our own bartenders a few
times in the 20+ years I was an owner.

Same here, cept he can yank his britches if he wants, its his home.
I however will keep mines on. heh

There have been at least two such comments in the past, including, most
recently, the comment in which you said, "You have the lifespan of a TV
commercial." What does that even mean? My life's going to be cut
short? Do you know something I don't, psycho? ...or is that just
incoherent schizo babble that I should just ignore? Another comment
several weeks ago was even more direct and threatening. And the other
claims are not disputed. (i.e. e-mailed directly at my home address,
followed to unrelated newsgroups and harassed.) Face it. You're an
Internet stalker and a psychopath. That's what you are. Deal with it.
I know those are harsh words, but sometimes the truth is pretty
painful, and if you look at the previous threads you'll find that I
have never had a harsh word to say to anyone until after repeated
I've forwarded your previous posts. Who knows? Maybe they'll dedicate
a special edition of Dateline just for you, right after the part where
they arrest the dudes stalking 13-year-old girls. So, when you hear in
the media about all the terrible predatory activity that takes place on
the Internet, they're talking about you, psycho!
And you want to know how to "trim widows"? Yikes!
...Then again, sounds kinky. ;)
It's quite possible Don meant something like 'attention-span' or

I think that that particular "13" year old was stalking them. ;)
I happened to have inadvertently caught some of that show, myself, by
the way. At first I thought it was an act. Maybe it was.
In any case, it is entirely possible (actually, I have a personal
anecdote) that some 13 year old girls fantasize about and want sex with
older males, and while my knowledge of some kinds of history is
limited, it's also possible that females of the past (and maybe even
presently in some cultures) were getting pregnant and having families
very early in age.
When I was 13, I started a newspaper route that had me delivering to a
delicious assortment of sexy female bachelors with their own
apartments, and I can assure you that, if anyone had to know if
anything transpired, the cops and Dateline would be some of the
furthest removed. :)

Try alt.psychology too. Maybe they can give you free advice on how to
build a private practice.
One of my points being that, if you were my Dad (perish the thought of
you on alt.architecture barking insults and fanning the flames, though,
but maybe you don't tell) and I'd have been regularly "experimenting"
at 13 y/o with this luscious 23 y/o hottie newspaper customer, and
loving every second of it, there'd not a thing you could do about it if
you didn't know about it.
And let's face it, I think there are many kids who would rather not
think about their parents "experimenting" with each other, either,
whether gay, bi or straight. Yikes! ;D
I realize that perhaps, to quote you: "...those are harsh words, but
sometimes the truth is pretty painful", Dad.
Can you explain how you can e-mail someone at their home address?
I always thought postal mail went to home addresses and emails went to
email addresses (which technically are on a server until you retrieve them.)
I've never had the need or desire to email him before, so anything I
don't send, he won't receive?
"The hacker jargon term mu (meaning neither yes nor no), can be used to
accurately respond to a question of this sort, saying that the question
asked carries incorrect assumptions...
A common way out of this argument is to not respond with a simple 'yes'
or 'no' answer, but with a full statement that also includes context.
To use an earlier example, a good response to the question 'Do you
still beat your wife?' would be either 'I have never beaten my wife' or
'I do not have a wife.' This removes the ambiguity of the expected
response, therefore nullifying the tactic."
