Jim, Jim, Jim,
Did you really think you could say "sorry" and get away with it?
Before I start handing you your ass on a platter I would like to say to the admins that I am fully aware of the rules of TUDiabetes and such but I don't take kindly to mental midgets such as Jim-Bob here insulting me for no reason. So do what you will.
Jimmy: you shouldn't store your glasses up your ass; I know you must like the feeling, but all the shit left behind seems to be hindering your eyesight. Too bad you don't have any similar excuse to explain your intelligence (or lack thereof).
I wrote "big fan of . . ." not "I believe them." I'm also a big fan of Santa Clause, but that doesn't mean I believe he is real. How about you try to follow what you are saying before you suggest others do. "A government conspiracy would require the cooperation of tens of hundreds of individuals, none of which could ever devulge their "secret"." Tens of hundreds??? You do know that means thousands . . . right??
Math lesson done, on to history. Greek history in fact. Once upon a time Greece had a King. A big bad man appeared out of nowhere and overthrew him plunging the country into chaos. People died, starved, and were tortured because of this man who had become a dictator. Brave people gave their life to stop him and eventually succeeded. The government conspiracy theorists claimed for decades (that's tens of years to you) that it was the American government that gave him power and everyone laughed at them. Ten years ago the CIA files on this matter were declassified and guess what? All those people who you consider an insult to humanity were 100% correct. The US government trained him, funded him, and used covert military operations to dethrone him. It also rigged elections in his favor and kidnapped people on his behalf.
All this happened and yet all those tens of hundreds of people involved never divulged their secret. Greece, by the way, is not the only example of this, just the one that is closest to my heart.
So unless you were apologizing for your display of stupidity, my answer to you is: apology not accepted.
And for future reference you shouldn't use Sci Fi as an insult. Have you ever heard of Jules Verne? No, of course you haven't. He wrote Sci Fi books such as A Journey to the Center of the Earth, From the Earth to the Moon, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World in Eighty Days, and The Mysterious Island long before space, air and underwater travel were possible.
What a ridiculous fellow he was to think that we could go to the moon . . . right?
Go ahead Jim, keep pocking the bear. I'm in the mood for jackasses like you today.
