objection[edit]

¶ I am relatively certain that Christians are not supposed to say or write words like “fuck”. --Pilcrow 01:38, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Get the fuck over it. :-* — [ R·I·C ] Laurent — 01:48, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm relatively certain that Christians are not supposed to:
  1. be faggots
  2. enjoy pornography
  3. be liberals
So I'm clearly a pretty terrible Christian. I'm currently wearing a totally awesome "Property of Jesus" t-shirt. It's my favorite. <3 — [ R·I·C ] Laurent — 01:56, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
Yes, well, I am sure your faith is quite important to yourself, then. I suppose you also take it seriously, judging from your behaviour. --Pilcrow 02:18, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
Serious as all 7 of the heart attacks that are keeping Charlie Sheen alive right now.
Ok so that was sort of a joke response, but yes it's quite important to me. I just have a much less formal relationship with Jesus than most Christians I've had the misfortune of dealing with would be comfortable with.
Yes, I talk more shit about Christians than a lot of atheists. Which reminds me of something I need to add to this page. — [ R·I·C ] Laurent — 02:42, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

About Volapük and Bizarro fiction[edit]

While I don't think that the Volapük language is terrible, I guess I could defend to the death your right to lampoon it. The conlang gets me into thinking about a children's book written in Volapük, with the main character in a Sultana Avatar Set from Dungeon Fighter Online. On Bizarro fiction, with some references to odd things (I think the bizarro authors are liberal, but that's my guess, not a stereotype), I don't know what you'll say or think about it. If you're new to this, you could read their starter kits if you want. Thank you. --Lo Ximiendo 22:49, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

All I wanted to do was add a simple example sentence and couldn't find any coherent descriptions of the simple grammatical functions I wanted done. That's all I was talking about in my edit summary. I have no plans really to learn or edit Volapuk. Speaking of Bizarro fiction, I've wanted to read Carlton Mellick 3 for a loooooong time, but I've never had the opportunity to buy Satan Burger. Or any of the other ones by him I really want to read....for there are many. — [Ric Laurent] — 23:05, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
Were you denied the opportunities to get any of his books, or is it a different story? I have Pseudo-City by D. Harlan Wilson as a library book that's due on November 10th (I think), and I feel bad for the salesperson in the book who has a kitchen growing on his back (spoilers, but he committed suicide because of it, shattering into pieces like glass; the kitchen was okay, though). --Lo Ximiendo 23:21, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
I live in a place where such awesome stuff isn't readily available. I couldn't even find friggin Brave New World at the closest library. If I want CM3, I'll have to order them online. Anyway, I collect books so I'd rather have them than borrow from the library. — [Ric Laurent] — 23:34, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
So your place of residence is conservative or something? You could join the Bizarro Brigade if desired. I wish I can join too, but I'm not sure how. --Lo Ximiendo 23:47, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
NC has a large black population, so it's sorta balanced, but I live in eastern NC which has a lot more whites so conservatives do have the upper hand out here. Book burnings and NO SHARIA LAW and that sort of thing lol. I'll buy them eventually, probably from Amazon, but it could be a while. — [Ric Laurent] — 00:26, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
D. Harlan Wilson teaches (or taught?) college writing and literature in lower Michigan (my state of residence) so it's probably no surprise that one of his works is in the Troy Public Library. (I use the Ellis Library and Reference Center here in Monroe, my hometown or homecity; but thank you, Michigan eLibrary, for your miracles.) --Lo Ximiendo 00:55, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

awesomeness[edit]

I generally despise people regurgitating their lives on userpages (and subpages), but I have to thank you - this is the best reading material I've gotten in a week. I'm a failed/failing writer who needs inspiration, so your stuff is pure gold. Either that or I am waaaay too sleep-deprived. Anyway, when I wake up, with my luck my inspiration'll be gone, but 'twas sweet while it lasted. Thanks! --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 04:44, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Heh... thanks :) I kinda think of Wiktionary (and indeed most long-term collaborations) working better if those involved have decent relationships with each other and know something about each other. I figure letting people know I'm unhinged and yurodiv is a good warning of what I'll be like in my editing. — [Ric Laurent] — 16:31, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
