Shake it, and watch the little sparkles of white, puffy magic float gracefully down.

Is a snowglobe a tracking device in Japan?

hey.. quite a number of people suggest that i use one, so i think i should at least know what it is or how it works..

i've only been on a.net for 12 days, yet they keep mentioning things like snowglobe and flairport as if i know what all this "inside-joke" is all about

and no, i am not from japan  Smile

Wait a minute. Give me a break.

At first I thought you were just crazy stupid - and then I thought you were just pathetic. Now I realize... you're a fake.

Lets review the facts, shall we?

1.) FACT: In your first post, you talked about "memorable people." You knew who GKirk was and you knew that he was closely tied to "sheep." You knew 9V-SPO was, and that his threads reflect that he's a horny git. You knew UDO - who hasn't used that screenname in A LONG time. Yet, you don't know about the infamous FLAIRPORT?

CONCLUSION: You've either been lurking on A.Net for quite some time, as proven by your knowledge of certain members. Or, more likely, you've already been a member of the site, and you're pretending to be someone else. Either way, you're playing stupid when it comes to FLAIRPORT and snowglobes. If you remember UDO - you remember FLAIRPORT.


2.) FACT: You have claimed you flew through Singapore's Changi Airport, yet in another thread, you didn't realize Singapore was in Asia! You said it was in EUROPE.

CONCLUSION: You never went to Singapore. Had you done so, you definitely would have realized what f'ing continent you were in. You are lying and pretending to be stupid.


3.) FACT: You said you only flew THROUGH Singapore - and that's why you didn't realize you were in Asia. HOWEVER, the photo you posted, titled "I took this at Singapore's Changi Airport" is a photo taken from INSIDE A CAR. Why were you in a car if you were only flying through the airport?

CONCLUSION: You're once again pretending to be stupid. You either never flew through Singapore, and ripped that photo off the internet. Or you stayed in Singapore, which would mean you knew you were in Asia.


4.) FACT: You created a thread talking about Math subjects you are studying. Nothing special. Your typical high school math curriculum. However, in another thread you claim to be this great math and physics genius.

CONCLUSION: Either your parents/teachers lied to you and told you that you were smart in physics and math - or your lying. Because that curriculum IS NOT indicative of a genius.


5.) FACT: You used the ORLY image and the Cargo Bay image.

CONCLUSION: You've been on a.net before - because in your first week, you're already using those images. Newbies don't know about those things.


6.) FACT: You talked about the VPL and camel toes.

CONCLUSION: You're not some innocent virgin chasing after some Asian girl. You're a horny old guy pretending to be a dumb kid to get some kicks.


7.) FACT: You claimed to speak Russian - albeit rusty Russian, but speak it nonetheless.

CONCLUSION: You don't speak Russian. Because I goggled the terms you translated and it came up exactly how you spelled them. You just used an internet tool to translate, and pretended to speak it. Fraud.


8.) FACT In certain posts, your grammar has been impeccable. You used proper punctuation, spelling and syntax. Yet, in other threads, you couldn't even properly spell Singapore in a consistent fashion, and your writing was atrocious.

CONCLUSION: You're smart than you let on. You pretend to be a stupid twit to get a raise out of a.netters. You have an odd desire to pretend to be a 20yr old boy who is woefully ignorant.


9.) FACT You posted pictures of yourself. I don't know if they were fake or not... but now they've disappeared. You deleted them.

CONCLUSION: When you first joined, your intentions were to be smart, witty, funny and contribute something meaningful to the thread. However, over time (we're talking a time frame of less than 2 weeks) you converted from that person, into someone who was silly hearted, ignorant, a poor speller, a liar, a geographically incompetent person, and a total fraud. You deleted those pictures because they no longer suited the "new" image you were trying to build.


10.) FACT You used the images of some poor Asian girl, and pretended like she was your love interest. You told us about your pseudo-stalking, and you gleefully talked about how you were trying to get her to like you. You posted an image of a fortune cookie she gave you - which conveniently translated to "you're a pig." You made a post that was eerily similar to FLAIRPORT's. YET NOW YOU WANT US TO BELIEVE YOU DON'T KNOW WHO FLAIRPORT WAS?!?

CONCLUSION: You sir, are a fraud. A fake. You're trying to bamboozle A.net into becoming the next FLAIRPORT. You're pretending to be stupid, you're pretending to be pathetically chasing after a young girl. You're pretending all of this to achieve some sort of rise out of all us.

And some of us may ask, why? Well I'll tell you. Just look at your very FIRST post on A.net: "Where Are Some Of The Memorable People?" You came in here with a knowledge of someone who has been around the block. You posted that thread, because you WANT to be one of those memorable people. You WANT to be one of those a.netters we joke about for years to come. You WANT to pretend to be someone else.

You've been exposed.

He apparently did not get his grammar and spelling facts wrong.  Wink

Though, I agree, something smells fishy. I have been a reader of A.net for many years, but only signed up recently.

No. He's saying that you're an idiot.
