E.  As promised, you still haven't killed Google.

Crom damnit Steve!  Will you please get back off that retired large-curd-cottage-cheese-butt and DESTROY GOOGLE once and for all like you promised?  Google is a festering pimple on the ass of my sanity.  You can borrow my suicide vest, I'm sure you can find an unwitting intern to deliver it into the belly of the beast.

Hey Battle Cat,

Can you change his avatar to Dr. Evil ?  :w00t:

That'd be awesome!

Yeah that would be appropriate and funny, but I don't want to mess with a member like that.  That is the sort of member abuse I decided long ago to abandon.  Personally, I preferred his previous avatar showing Steve Balmer apparently holding a huge invisible dong up to his mouth.

This guy can't be real. This is some elaborate sarcasm or satire or something right?

Yes, yes, yes, or yes.  His blog leaves no doubt about this.  I recommend you read it.  I used to read it the last time he was here then I lost track of it till now.  This is good stuff, great fun.

I haven't had time for it yet but I was hoping the blog would be good, enlightening fun. I'm glad to hear I have something to look forward to there.

The last I saw you, and this is to the best of my recall, some internet men were sent to this forum to take you back to wherever it was you had apparently escaped from.  It was all very mysterious.  

Actually, now that I've been thinking about this for awhile it wasn't Steve Ballmer, it was the guy who had the Wilford Brimley avatar.  Sorry for the confusion.

While doing research on Monkey Boy, I came across an honest to goodness video made by Microsoft where Ballmer is in costume as Dr. Evil and Bill (gag) Gates is Austin Powers.

I think it's on Business Insider's web site.

I couldn't bring myself to watch it, and slowly backed away.

We understand. Getting aroused at work is a big no no. At least, in most places it is. In some few places they actually encourage it.

I'm pretty sure this takes the prize to this day for being the worst promo video Microsoft has ever released:

I still remember the way the chant made my skin crawl. It still does. I tried to watch it all just now but I couldn't take it past 3 minutes I think. I think 3 minutes at a time is about the maximum allowable human dosage for this.

Good thing I'm a cat and not a human.  I watched the entire thing.  Now if you will excuse me, I'm just going to lick this barf back up while it is still warm.  Any cat will tell you that tuna is a terrible thing to waste.

Thanks, but my blog is really just a record of my interest and whatever I am thinking at the moment. The world needs this!

"OP" means Original Poster, that'd be you.

But Steve "Monkey Boy" Ballmer would know this.

Seriously, you're just a teenage troll because…

A. You do not know correct grammatical language:
  You don't write, "Is there really a such thing as a Mac game?"
  You should have written, "Is there really such a thing as a Mac game?"

B. The fact that you made the same grammatical error, twice.

C. You really don't have the leisure time to be posting on a Macintosh specific site in the forums if you are teaching courses AND are an owner of an NBA team, all the while raising three children.


D.  Monkey Boy's "Location" is not Redmond, he lives in Hunts Point, Washington.

E.  As promised, you still haven't killed Google.

F. Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing (v32) works just as well on a PC as on a Mac.

BTW, love the new avatar. Now if you'd just hold your little pinkie up to the corner of your mouth, you'd be a dead-ringer for Dr. Evil!
Before you impersonate someone else, at least do your research.

Sheeeesh!
A. My grammar is my grammar, it is correct. I could think of a dozen ways to express the same thing, that does not mean that they are all wrong except the one you like.
B. See A
C. Try being a billionaire, you can do whatever you like.
D. I don't "live" in one place. That is a poor man's concept. I have residences in five states and three overseas. Several I have not been to this year.
E. Google? I decided to manipulate than destroy.
F.  I have a 33% stake in Borderbund, I defacto own Mavis Beacon.

Who knows more about me? - all you know is what they tell you. We control you son and you don't even know it!

I was enjoying a nice bacon, egg and cheese sandwich on toast for breakfast just now when I was treated to this bit of flowery prose, or should I say barfy prose? Don't worry though. I still enjoyed it just the same. I became comfortably numb well before anyone wrote a song about it.

Learn to grammar Steve and to spell too. That last post was just ridiculous! No wonder they put you out to pasture.

You must be right at home in the world of sports. Where else can you be surrounded by rich and famous people who all skipped college but somehow were awarded degrees anyway?
