Well, I suppose this is seriously downhill since that handsome devil "Unk" posted his pic. Sorry about the thumbnail, but I haven't mastered enlargement technology. (The brave of heart can click for a larger image.) I chose this pic because of the mysterious "chemtrail" in the sky. Or is just a damaged photo?

Is that a weapon in your hand, Ken?

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), May 22, 2000.

Here's a link to Pic thread #2


That ain't no chemtrail...I've seen 'em and inhaled their deadly gases..they make you spend all your time in chatrooms...snicka!

-- Peg (pegmcleod@mediaone.net), May 22, 2000.


Per the caption, it is a Savage "combo"--.223 rifle over a .20 gauge shotgun. Single-shot, hammer-selectable. While not a huge Savage fan, the "combo" is quite handy. It's light, points well and you have the option of a "wing shot" with the shotgun or a "head shot" with the rifle.

-- Ken Decker (kcdecker@worldnet.att.net), May 22, 2000.

Sorry, Ken. I totally missed the caption. I've gone back and read it now. I gave up coffee a few years back. Perhaps I should start again. I REALLY don't want to do that, however. I'll just try and get more sleep next time.

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), May 22, 2000.

Shame! How can you shoot our feathered friends?

-- (nemesis@awol.com), May 22, 2000.

Anita... no problem. I also function a better with a good cup of java under my belt.

As for "Nemesis," I only hunt the tasty ones. Are you one of those folks who decries the cruelty of hunting between bites of a chicken sandwich? Personally, I think everyone who eats meat should experience the process of "hoof to table" first hand. Having seen factory farming, I far prefer the time-honored traditions of hunting and fishing.

-- Ken Decker (kcdecker@worldnet.att.net), May 22, 2000.

Geez, you don't look like an asshole, kenny ;-)

-- Hawk (flying@high.again), May 22, 2000.

"Geez, you don't look like an asshole, kenny ;-) "

What's an asshole supposed to look like to you Hawk? To me, it's the hole in the ass, doesn't look anything like a complete human.

On the other hand, I'm taken for a loop with this picture. He looks more like a younger hillbilly than the pompous grey haired with a bowtie man his style of writing made me think he was ;-)

A cute hillbilly even. Makes me want to call him "Kenny" too ;-)

-- (you@got.me.kenny), May 22, 2000.

Jeepers, he does look sorta hillbillish huh? Not that that's a bad thing. Cannot think who it is he reminds me of, some WWF wrestler mebbe? Funny how we draw a mental picture of a person based on the words they write.

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeed@yahoo.com), May 22, 2000.


May a grouchy grouse poop on your parade.

-- (nemesis@awol.com), May 22, 2000.


That wasn't me that posted that Ken!

What a jerkoff!

My reply was going to be this...

Ken, Is that the same shack that the Unabomber use to live in?

[real Hawk. OTFR]

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), May 22, 2000.

Unk, you are a veritable "James Bond" compared to me. On occasion, folks have been fooled by my burly physical appearance, particularly in casual attire. In real life, I am a rather casual guy... and I much prefer blue jeans to Armani. Early in Y2K, I adopted a writing style that sounds a bit like "Charles Emerson Winchester III." My conversational style is much different than my formal (and occasionally acidic prose.)

-- Ken Decker (kcdecker@worldnet.att.net), May 22, 2000.

Whoever that was that just used my name - you screwed up jerkoff! I never spelled "flying" with the g, always "flyin." Hah! Also have recently shortened "high" to "hi".

Don't do that again dipshit or I'll track you down and make you eat your balls on a shiskabob!

[real Hawk. OTFR]

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), May 22, 2000.

Ohyeah, James Bond, yep, that's me.

And of course you noticed the picture of me hanging out with the movers and shaker of the world, in our Armani suits, last summer in Monaco.

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeed@yahoo.com), May 22, 2000.

Nice pic, Ken. Now then, where's Flint's? And for that matter, where's yours Hawk and nemesis?

-- CD (costavike@hotmail.com), May 22, 2000.

You couldn't handle a pic of me, CD. Are you the asshole impersonating me? You debunky monkeys are even smart enough to copy my handle right.

[imposter. OTFR]

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), May 22, 2000.



AREN'T smart enough, damit...

[imposter. OTFR]

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), May 22, 2000.

Chill out Hawk. I realize you're pissed cuz some lowlife stole your handle, but don't take it out on me. I have never posted to this forum or to the old TB2000 under any name except CD.

(Come to think of it... Maybe I'm merely replying to the lowlife who is once again stealing Hawk's handle. Hmmm)

-- CD (costavike@hotmail.com), May 22, 2000.

The other trouble with picking out a Hawk post by the handle is that he changes between "flyin@hi.again" and "flyin@high.again" seemingly at random.

Although at times I'd wondered if he used the latter one to indicate his condition... ;-)

Anyway, whoever is impersonating people, please stop it: it's irritating.


P.S. It's especially unwise to irritate Hawk, him being a 6'4" bounty hunter and all.

-- Someone (ChimingIn@twocents.cam), May 22, 2000.

That last post accusing CD wasn't me either, it's the asshole again.

OTFR, could you please take a look at the IP location of the imposter and tell me who it matches up with? It is the one who posted the picture of Ken and the last two responses to CD. Thanks.

[real Hawk. OTFR]

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), May 22, 2000.

Hey Hawk! How ya doin guys? Two Hawks, what a dilema. Reminds me of a Star Trek movie -- set your phaser on stun and wait to see which is one is more vulgar! No offense intended Hawk. In your own way, you have a certain kind of consitent charm...

Nice pics Ken.

-- JoseMiami (caris@prodigy.net), May 22, 2000.

"Consistent" Sorry bout that. I should always compose my posts in Word first and run the spell check.

-- JoseMiami (caris@prodigy.net), May 22, 2000.

Thanks OTFR, but I need a little more help than that. I believe it is a violation of Internet law to impersonate someone else and use the exact same e-mail address. I want to know who is doing this.

I am not asking you to give me the IP location, number, or e-mail address. I need to know the name of anyone who has posted on this forum before under another name who matches the location of the imposter who is using my name. I would greatly appreciate your help, thanks.

[Real Hawk]

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), May 22, 2000.

Hawk, you should email me to discuss your problem in private.

I helped you here when you asked on a post, but really I shouldn't. It causes more problems than it solves.


-- Old TB2K Forum Regular (freespeech@yahoo.com), May 22, 2000.

And you don't think someone using my name causes problems? That isn't free speech, it is illegal. I'll mail you.

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), May 22, 2000.

Howdy Ken:

Home for a short time. Great picture. Ol Dan'l must have looked like that. You need the beaver hat to make it compleat [notice the old style spelling, Ol Dan'l was never much of a speller.

Hawk, at least half of my posts on the old board were by someone else. It just happens. Since I haven't been here for awhile, there may be more on the new board. Everyone knows you. I wouldn't worry too much about it. You are among friends.

Best wishes,,,

-- Z1X4Y7 (Z1X4Y7@aol.com), May 22, 2000.

OTFR, I know it's a hassle for you, but you really need to tell him.

Hawk, you can always subpoena the tapes.

-- (Ladylogic@...), May 22, 2000.


I just mailed you and it bounced because your address is bogus. Could I have your REAL e-mail please?

This guy (who's REAL name is "hawk"...his parents must have been dropping acid when they named him) has a REAL e-mail address with the extension ".again" WOW thats a new one!

A dude with a FAKE name and FAKE e-mail wants people to stop "impersonating" him.

Heck Ken is just a southerner. You can tell by his posture, can't you? Ken is like all of us who dream of times pass. I wish life was different myself. Let Freedom Ring Let Angel Sing

-- ET (bneville@zebra.net), May 24, 2000.

He looks like the Unabomber. What the hell is he doing with a gun up there anyway, trying to look macho?

-- (dipshits@are.you.com), May 24, 2000.

Yikes. Leave for a few minutes and all Hell breaks out.

As for the rifle comments, it's pretty common to carry a firearm while hunting. Many of the photos from my youth have me with trusty rifle in hand and, on occasion, a dead animal. There's nothing "macho" about it, it's just a rural lifestyle thing. And this is not a "southern" affectation. I'm from the west... similar, but not the same.

Now, is anyone else going to pony up some pictures?

-- Ken Decker (kcdecker@worldnet.att.net), May 24, 2000.

That some real adventurous hunting there Ken, 30 feet above the ground on a balcony.

-- (lounge@chair.hunting), May 24, 2000.

"Funny how we draw a mental picture of a person based on the words they write."

I missed this on the first pass through the pictures. Can we revisit this thought? I know that *I* was met with the standard, politically correct statements regarding how lovely my family was, etc., but nowhere to be found were any statements indicating that the reality was inconsistent with the fantasy. Did MY words conjure less of an image than Ken's?

Just to start, I'll express my own thoughts on the reality versus the image for the pictures I recall: Unk: Your picture, as well as Debra's reflected a more attractive shell than I'd imagined. Consumer, Capn, Peg, Richard: I found your pictures consistent with images I'd conjured. Ken: I can't comment on the image I had of you because you'd already met with folks IRL and I learned of your attributes before you presented your picture. I'm having a "senior" moment here. I can't recall if others posted their pictures or not.

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), May 24, 2000.

I hate it when these after-thoughts occur, so this will be my last one on this subject. Future: I didn't really HAVE a picture in my mind of your physical attributes. You never really provided one in your conversations. It's not like anyone else really did either, but somehow I could associate in my mind someone with similar thoughts and attribute THEIR attributes, or in Unk's case just listen to him describe himself to establish a reference point. In your case, I simply drew a blank.

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), May 24, 2000.

Unk: Your picture, as well as Debra's reflected a more attractive shell than I'd imagined.

So what you are saying is that even though I am, in the words of Ken Decker, James Bondian on the outside, you imagined me as more a John Merrick on the inside? Or as a John Merrick on the inside, the outside shell, in the words of Ken Decker, of a Bondian nature surprised you?

Help me, is this something that should please me or not?

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeed@yahoo.com), May 24, 2000.

OK, Anita, I'll bite. I you look almost as I had pictured you, except knowing your Nordic heritage, I made the "blonde" association. For some reason, I also thought Peg was blonde.

Future, I thought you were older and I know why: Your "email address" (think@gray.matter). I assumed (*incorrectly*) that you were an older gent.

Ken, I had seen your description so I had no preconceived notions.

consumer, you are pretty close to the mental image I formed.

Unk, I wasn't even close. I thought you had dark hair (or used to, anyway).

Capn, again, I wasn't even close. Thought you were older, but I attribute that to not really knowing enough about you.

I didn't really know enough about Deb to have formed a mental image, as it was with Richard.

-- Patricia (PatriciaS@lasvegas.com), May 24, 2000.


Who's John Merrick?

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), May 24, 2000.

OK, a bit seriouser here.


I know a gal named Anita, who goes by Nita, She is blonde, as I knew you were, roughly your age, and also of Nordic descent. I pictured you in my mind as her. You do not look like her, which in all honesty is in your favor. That is where (how?) I accuired a mental picture of you.

As to Ken, well, he looks more "woodsey" than I imagined. Again, not that that's a bad thing, he certainly need make no excuses in the "manly good looks" dept. I pictured him in my mind with more of a standard military/teacher look: crew cut, thinner, and with both hands on the gun, hee hee.

I think what we do is subconsciously pick a face that fits the name of the poster we are attempting to place a face upon. Combined with attributes from folks we know who "feel" the same to us as the poster does, and, viola.

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeed@yahoo.com), May 24, 2000.

Hint: "I am not an animal"

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeed@yahoo.com), May 24, 2000.

Unc ^^^^ LOL, do I look like a 'drunk'?....ROFLMAO

-- consumer (shh@aol.com), May 24, 2000.

Unk... I am a human being. And I the only preconceived notion I had about you was something to do with pecs. (laughter) The next pic I post will be in an Armani and without the goatee. As for the burliness, it's just part of the package. Well, Stan Faryna did I say I looked like a high school science teacher. (Egads!)

In truth, I think photos are just another layer of shadows. It takes more than a pic and some online scribbling to know someone. I do hope to meet some of you IRL.

-- Ken Decker (kcdecker@worldnet.att.net), May 24, 2000.

Unk has pecs? [I didn't even notice whether he "dressed" right or left. Did anyone else?] I was captured by his smile. My senses simply zoomed in on that feature and that feature was a pleasant site to behold.

Didja ever discuss with your mate the quality that first struck you as attractive when you met? Heh. WE have. I have a man with pecs that don't quit, strong shoulders, a butt worth grabbing at any time of day, but I was attracted to him by his smile. [Appreciation of the other qualities came later.]

Unk, DESPITE the many times you've told me of your height, I STILL imagined a short man. As you said, it's a function of our minds relating to similar experiences IRL. My Uncle Fred was the outstanding example in my life of a "baldING" man, and HE was short; ergo the one with the Unk in the name and the self-professed baldING MUST look like my Uncle Fred.


Depending on the lighting and time of year, my hair moves between blonde enough to be considered blonde and dark enough to be considered brunette. It's one of those in-between hair colors that can't be replicated by anything in a bottle. An in-depth analysis [which you might know I've performed] indicates that SOME of the strands are BLACK, while some of the strands are BLONDE, while other strands are somewhere inbetween. [It's both fitting and yet humorous that I'm spending my last night of single-hood discussing hair follicles on the internet while I COULD be out somewhere doing something much more creatively destructive.]

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), May 24, 2000.

Last night of singleness? What did I miss when I was getting popcorn?

Ken, likewise.

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeed@yahoo.com), May 24, 2000.


Thanks for stealing my identity after I posted my picture on your thread! I AM JOHN MERRICK!! BTW, I'm beautiful inside and out.


Did you lose your left arm in a hunting accident?

-- Hawk (flyin@hi.again), May 24, 2000.


SO went to Las Vegas for 4 days with his family [and THEIR extended family, etc.]. He returns tomorrow. I don't even enjoy SHOPPING with this bunch. I can't imagine spending 4 days with them. I think it's time to buy some beer before the stores stop selling it. Is this the same thread wherein Consumer asked if she looked like a drunk? [grin]

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), May 24, 2000.


[Boy, am I SLOW!] It didn't occur to me until almost 2 hours later that you might have thought I'd finally decided to tie the knot. It ain't gonna happen in this lifetime again, Unk. Once was enough.

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), May 25, 2000.


I think one time in e-mail, I told you I had golden highlights in my hair. I was born blond, but as I got older it darkened. It does lighten up a tad in the summer. Lately, I've noticed some silvery colored strands, here and there...what's up with that?..LOL Might be time to hit the bottle soon...hmm...let's see..Nice and Easy, Miss Clairol or Michelob Light?...LOL

-- Peg (pegmcleod@mediaone.net), May 25, 2000.


Yes it is....see above about 5 up!! (Very evil grin....) sounds to me like shopping with my mother in law...LOL...

I'd rather bear wrestle.!!!omg, did I say that?

just a chillin

-- consumer (shh@aol.com), May 25, 2000.

Ken, I've seen some high school science teachers who were pretty hot stuff. ;)

Is that a chemtrail in the background

-- lindy (lindy@lindy.com), May 26, 2000.

Hawk, you said,

Ken, Is that the same shack that the Unabomber use to live in?

[real Hawk. OTFR]

What do you mean "used to"?... ;-)


-- Someone (ChimingIn@twocents.cam), May 26, 2000.


I was checking this thread to see if I missed any pics and I caught this from you (must of missed it the first time):

You quoted Uncle Deedah (I think) who said:

"Funny how we draw a mental picture of a person based on the words they write."

You went on to say:

"Unk: Your picture, as well as Debra's reflected a more attractive shell than I'd imagined."

Uncle Deedah then asked:

"Help me, is this something that should please me or not?"

You never really answered which is unusual for you. I'm curious too. Based on my words what did you imagine? You are saying my "shell" is more attractive than my words? Or my words are less attractive than my "shell?"

Uncle Deedah -

I don't think we should let THIS one go. Anita has some 'splaining to do! However will she manage to get out of this one? And ... no Anita, Lilith will not help, she will only get you into more trouble!

-- Debra (??@??.com), May 28, 2000.

Ken, the picture in the sky does not resemble what I have seen, sorry. ..I do not know what comprises the aerial photo, but it is not the same that I have seen for 18 months. I cannot jump on this chemtrail train, because it isn't the same. Maybe you are "spoofing". For those, who have seen what I have seen, the criss cross blanket, of twin vapors, which do not dissipate, but gather to form a plume of a cloud cover, on an otherwise cloud free day. I have no control, but recognition.

-- Truth (for@llofus.org), May 28, 2000.


I think I already explained to Unk that my "vision" of him corresponded to my Uncle Fred. It wasn't his words that led me to that, but his handle combined with his description of baldING. From your posts, I expected someone older, black hair [tinged with gray], in an unkempt looking hairstyle. I think this picture came from your posts on herbs and menopause. I have a book on herbs somewhere where the author had this appearance.
