The Truth About Chuck Norris


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

So to clarify: BEING rude, offensive and churlish for no reason is OK; CALLING someone on it (in this case with a slight but common vulgarity) is not.


Sorry, I don't consider that a "slight" vulgarity; please don't use it again.

Thanks - fair enough. I'll rephrase my offending comment:

It's a malmo post so of course he's being rude, offensive and churlish for no reason . . .

What the hell is wrong with you? Didn't the man just tell you to stop it?

The only thing wrong with me is that I take offense to you coming on here with your typically rude and condescending posts. I don't care who you are pointing your barbs at, it sours just about every thread you enter, almost always without cause.

The photo credit thread was a great example. Some very rare poster wants to give some photog an attaboy for what he considered a nice picture, and you went off on him. And still are earlier in this post.

It is tiring and the boards would be better off without it, regardless of whatever slight glimmer of useful info you occasionally post here.

I just looked back, seemed like a completely innocent comment. More trying to start a conversation than make any accusation.

Malmo, this is about right. You bring good content to the boards but the barbs sour it, especially when unprovoked. How can you still be smarting over the photog request?

I didn't "go off" on anyone on that thread. You are projecting your own miserable mindset into my posts. It was YOU who chose to sour that thread, not me.

Here's the entire exchange. Straightforward until bad hammy decided to ruin it, as he always does.

jamese1045 wrote:I only asked whether you made the photo or who did to offer my compliments. I don't know you, your age, background, nothing. Standard operating procedure when displaying photos publically is to show credit for the artistic ownership.

I could have been clearer and I am sorry to have caused any confusion.

malmo wrote:"Artistic ownership" -- surely you jest? You've made a lot of presumptions there. Where I come from when someone gives you a photo, you don't ask them for their SSN and drivers license. You just say "thanks." Which I did.

Look in the mirror pal. I am not "smarting" over any request. It was none of the guys business, nor is it any of your business. End of story.

Now I could say, as you've said before, "look in the mirror, pal." But in this area you're blind and so I will not mock the afflicted . . .

Tough-guy actor and martial-arts expert Chuck Norris, real name Carlos Ray Norris, sued publisher Penguin on Friday over a book he claims unfairly exploits his famous name, based on a satirical Internet list of "mythical facts" about him. Penguin published "The Truth About Chuck Norris: 400 facts about the World's Greatest Human" in November.

Garry, does this mean we can't discuss our favorites choices in breakfast cereals here? I prefer Special K, with Granola mixed in, and sometimes Grape-Nuts. Does this get me thrown off the list?

Probably not, but your preference for Special K confirms that you're just a flaky guy.

I've never understood how anyone can eat grape-nuts. Do you chew them or swallow them whole? Or do you leave them to soak overnight to relieve them of their gravel-like hardness?

I like various Trader Joe granola's mixed with one Weetabix.

Thanks...

Good question - sometimes I let them soak a bit in the milk, but sometimes I like them crunchy.

The link does not work. It might have been removed already.

I must have missed this thread in real time. It is quite entertaining.

And in searching for that, more Chuck Norris lines than anybody should ever need (and now you know where Dos Equis got its inspiration for the most interesting man in the world)

You're probably very lucky that the link has been killed for piracy reasons. I suspect the content would have made you the second of the day to be banned for political violations.

Allowing someone, and his wife, to speak his/their minds on the great issues of our day is a political violation? By the way anyone who is interested in Norris et als views they can google it easily. Or see it on John Stewart.

Feel free to discuss all the great issues of the day you like with family, friends, or on a thousand other boards. Raise politics here and your right to discussion gets curtailed. It's a pretty simple rule.
