Markus' almost completely unfiltered transcription of his mental processes is a genuine mystery to me. It is as though he is in the room with you, thrashing about, tipping shit over. Alternately whispering and shouting, dropping ciggie butts in his unfinished drink and spraying halfswallowed ash-booze everywhere.

Noone writes exactly the way they speak, surely? It takes real talent.
Good.

Thanks Mission. More interesting that the way some other people write on here.

Because you have form.

You ask questions, people respond, and then you never get back to us

Not true, the reason I don't get back most of the time is threadcapping. It's the single biggest hypocrisy of this place. People complain that there's no one posting on here. Then when someone does, the same people try to threadcap it, yourself included. So why bother? Take this thread for example. 11 posts before a serious reply from Doug.

I've always assumed he uses speech recognition software that's in need of a tweak or two.

Yes and Doug and Nick gave me some names, that i'm checking out. :? Just because you can't physically see me researching them doesn't mean it isn't happening. You know, you say you're an English teacher, but none of us have actually seen you teach. So we assume you're not lying.

Nah my Donegal accent would be too sexy for the software, it would make it digitally blush.

:lol:

OK.

It was just a bit of a daft question, Markus. I mean, we got what you were asking, but who wasn't commenting on all of those things in that time period? What exactly are you interested in?

It's not a daft question at all. It's like that US saying, opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. Some people like Peterson are more interesting than others. Like everyone can tell a story but Ustinov for example is more interesting than most.

I do.

He wrote The Usual Suspects, and many another fine but indecipherable 'mystery movie'.

Markus is a gift to humankind, a gift that keeps on giving.
