• Off his fucking nut…

    Ever see someone describe themselves and then you later realise that they don’t know themselves very well, and aren’t very well socialized?

    “I be fifty-three, healthy, six feet, 180 pounds, good looking but nothing to get all up in the air about, blond receding hair, green eyes, university grad., writer, teacher. Can work in exotic locations and have done so, easy to get along with, adventurous, survivor, world traveler. Have bicycled thirty thousand miles through nineteen countries—USA, Canada, Mexico, western Europe, eastern Europe, former Soviet Union, China, south Korea.”

    That seems pretty innocuous, albeit a lot like a personal ad from a middle aged guy looking to find some cute young thing who’s willing to don spandex pants and ride crouched over on a bike with him for hours on end. Someone points out that this sounds like a personal ad, and the original poster loses not only his OWN mind, but those of everyone within a mile radius of his location…

    One of the best posts in this huge thread is #90, which contains the classic line ‘O.K. I hope to meet you. Please don’t wear yellow, I really hate yellow. The bad voices sound yellow.’

      I think we found that at Metafilter a while ago; isn’t he a riot? Just insane.

      When I spotted this, I was intrigued, so I dug around a bit and found more evidence of him around the Web:
