Name YOUR FreeRepublic Must Read Members II-Where is Everybody?
Free Republic Thread I bumped Into ^ | 02/22/03

Posted on 02/22/2003 10:41:44 AM PST by TaRaRaBoomDeAyGoreLostToday!

I went through my bookmarks today and noticed alot of the old unaccesible threads and went down memory lane. Where is everybody? So many I can't list but I wonder where they went or if screen names have been changed.

While having some fun and updating this thread

Name YOUR FreeRepublic must read members

I hope many will also check in or knowledge of new screen names be made known-if they are still here.

I always got a kick of the cantankerous people who used to be on this forum. A+Bert, Jethro Tull, Arthur McGowan, etc. I don't know why people complained about them and got some of them banned. I know Jethro Tull and I had many battles as we disagreed on much, but based on Freep mails that went between us, I think he was a decent guy. I always got a kick out of "pinging" Arthur McGowan after he went ballistic one day about ping lists. I haven't seen him around here in a while. Is he still around or did he finally get sick of all the pings?

I like the Freepers who aren't afraid to enter the fray and take unpopular stands, like sinkspur, Senator Pardek, Dog Gone, DoughtyOne, etc. There are many other people here who present good arguments and add spice and humor to this forum. Of course, I am leaving many, many people out which is why I don't like responding to threads like this.

Yup. The nannies have bestowed more decorum, but as for me the sometimes debaucherous confrontations were often times enjoyable and a much needed release from the one voice choir.

IOW yes, I do miss the old days, the more eclectic mix and eccentric characters.

Which brings me to a quick parable...

A wealthy man wanted the most perfect car in the world. He had hear that Ferrari was a work of art and most probably the ultimate automotive statement.

After plunking down vast sums of money and waiting over a year, the Big Day finally arrived and the car was delivered. The man had it parked in a prominent spot at his home, then got a lawn chair and bottle of his best wine.

Over the next few hours he studied and considered the Ferrari from every perspective, marveling at it's beauty and perfection. Eventually Old Tom the local handyman wandered by. He had been doing carpentry work in the man's house and was finishing for the day. As he passed the Ferrari he stopped and also marveled at how beautiful the car was.

The new Ferrari owner was most pleased with this and couldn't resist talking to Old Tom.

"Isn't this a fantastic car?" he bragged, hoping to get Old Tom to admit it was perfect.

"Oh YES" said Old Tom. "It's almost perfect".

"ALmost?" asked the wealthy man. "What do you mean almost? Do you know how much this car cost? I waited over a year while it was hand crafted!"

"Yup" said Old Tom. "It's just too bad the front bumper is a half inch lower on the right than the left. You'd think that for that much money they'd get the darn bumper straight".

"Oh". laughed the wealthy man. "I think you're wrong about that. I was told this car is perfect".

"Weeellll" drawled Old Tom. "It's not just the bumper. The right and left doors are different, the taillights are uneven. Heck, I don't think there's one thing on the car that's perfect".

The wealthy man was incredulous, but Old Tom pulled out his tape and level and after a few minutes and dozens of measurments, he was proved correct. The car was an amalgamation of uneven, unequal and sometimes completely different parts from one side to the other. Even the distance between the front and rear wheels was different from the right side to the left.

The now disillusioned wealthy man silently retreated to his chair, poured more wine and angonized over how imperfect his perfect car was. He couldn't even bear to look at it thinking he'd been swindled into thinking it was perfect. He made plans to take it out on the dealership the next day. He was going to make them take it back or if he had to, sell it at a big loss to the next sucker.

Meanwhile Old Tom packed up his tools and walked off. "Still it IS a beautiful machine taken altogether" he said to himself. "Wish I could afford one like that".

Moral: It's our imperfections that create character, personality and make us memorable.

There was a poster...a Hindu Astrologer...I used to like to read. He and I didn't often agree, but I found his posts interesting, even though I don't believe one hoot in astrology of any persausion. He had a website too with li\nks to the Hindustan times and such, but I've lost the link. I forget his screenname but I think it started with t a "J".

I listed YOU just now as a WHERE IS!

I'm pretty much here on a daily basis! Evidently we're just hanging out on different threads. Which just goes to show that this place has gotten so big, that it is possible for one to lose himself in the vast world that is Free Republic these days. (We just added out 100,000th member today.)
