There are lots of good sagas in the yospos cat thread, the story of Walt, the cat who was a stray in a goons backyard and became a floof lord was a good one

Oh, and the cat wedding where some goons for married and included their cats in the ceremony

Unfortunately those thread(s?) are massive

Another one that was wonderful was the goon who didn't like cats in PI who asked for help with a stray and ended up having several cats he doted on. I think one was named supernintento chalmers?

The naked king of shoredich (sp?) was a fun little saga.

Goon has his street or block closed off for some sort of emergency and started posting pictures and taking suggestions as what to do.

Statistically you'd think that I'd sometimes fluke into typing a decent post. Nah. Only the most tedious, shitty posts, all day every day baby!

Don't bother engaging me, I don't ever get the hints to fuck off.




What was the thread about the guy who's wife wanted to let him with a purple dildo?

Also, whats all this about getting perma'd by boobs?

What's a war hero got to do to get some lubrication around here?

I have no idea how to find the thread but there was a goon that discovered his redneck neighbors was stealing his cable, so he used what I think was the conversion box for a Genesis to send a electrical surge though the cable, intending to blow out the tv or something minor. Though because the house was badly wired or something it started a fire.

Oh yea, and I thought i'd never have to hear about goonporn until recently when that whole ugly incident came up late last year.

One of my great regrets is that during the Trukk saga we were supposed to meet up with him while passing through Tennessee, but never did.
Apparently he had been working late the night before and slept through the time when we were passing though.


Also has anybody mentioned the Trukk saga?

Yep, and the other guy got a 5000 dollar grand piano. For his fifth floor walk up.

Benzos are GABA agonists, so they tell your brain to slow its roll. It’s like alcohol, except instead of eventually passing out or yarping everywhere, you just black out and lose your inhibitions and memories.

And if you spend enough time on them, your body starts making more glutamate, which makes your brain speed up. On the low end, you have a bad headache and the shakes. On the high end, you have hallucinations, and seizures, and die. Which is why the TCC benzo thread had a guy at the 2300ish page mark asking for help about smuggling benzos into SAUDI loving ARIABIA so he could function there. They, uh, execute people for drug smuggling there.

He didn't actually buy the piano... he just bid on it, but the reserve was $50k, and he didn't meet it.

While that thread was hilarious, at least a couple of people ended up dying (Brewkakke was actually selling Da Joose, and had a moose as the website logo, and I can't remember the other guy, but there was at least one other), and that sucks.

I also remember the thread where someone thought they had a copy of the first Super Hornio Bros, so they went through all this effort to digitize it, but it turned out that the video was just a mislabeled copy of the second one.

Is the heroin/opioids general thread still active? It was always pretty horrifying how the early pages of that thread were a mausoleum of permabanned dead posters.

Super Hornio Spit-shine
Panel 1: The port town of Left Mano Island is covered in a white sticky sludge, citizens are stuck in the sludge.
Anouncer After a hard night of partying in Sierra Beach, somebody came all over Left Mano Island and you’ve been framed for it!
Panel 2: MAL is shown, dressed as Mario with a paper towel dispenser on his back
Announcer: Use a paper towel dispenser known as CUMRAG to clean up the mess and collect Blind Sprites.
Panel 3: A blue pianta in a police cap yells at MAL.
Blue Pianta: Go straight to work, you can’t miss the mess pal. Your first job is to clean up all that ugliness. And remember, we’ll be watching you, we’ll know if you’ve been wacking off.

I feel like the SA mods have been a bit self-flagellating about that stuff. Not only was it a different atmosphere, there’s something to be said for giving a shithead enough rope to make their own noose. People like PCOS Bill can’t say they were just chased off because they were unpopular, it’s “nope, they were a shithead on a level that goes above and beyond the call of being a dickhead”.

Having quit a volunteer job over a toxic dickhead that just got the cold shoulder and played victim, it’s a prettt big difference.

E:And it was also something for the community to say “gently caress no, get out” to, which is valuable.

There was also the guy who baked to death in his car after taking some (he had already hit a psychotic state while on it and terrified his wife enough with a gun that she had fled the home with the kids).
Iirc that wasn't joose, I thought it was way later than joose. Iirc I think it was just opiates or maybe a shitload of Imodium or something like that.

What happened afterward was the wife came on and posted about his death, and some goon quickly replied like "sooo he owned me drugs [maybe money?], can you send me that now?"

I appreciate this post. I have typically been a rope-giving type of moderator in the past so that when I do come down on somebody they can't cry capricious. Given the last couple months I've been worrying that I should have operated differently.

There was also a song from probably 06 that still pops in my head on occasion. I'm almost certain it came from SA the chorus was "it must be true and I'll never forget because I read it on the inter-net!" This happened right?

Being able to buy other people’s av’s is a big part of it. You can be a shithead, but how does “not posting for six hours” stack up to “someone in the community paid :bux: to make sure you being a dipshit follows your posts around?” Self policing doesn’t always work, obviously, but it’s an outspoken community and the punishments have been dialing in over the last while.

I think car guy died of an opiate overdose but had also been getting into phenazepam and his wife had moved out with the kids when he threatened her with a gun.

Pretty sure I'm not getting him confused with the guy who punched his girlfriend in the face because he was tripping because he didn't think she was real.

Or the guy who was only vaguely concerned that his girlfriend had passed out for a bunch of hours while he watched sports.

Car guy was an opiate overdose, and his wife came on on his account to ask which of his drugs were which, iirc. There was also an OD that involved a movie theatre and someone showing up to ask about the drugs they had.

The whole "he owed me drugs can you plz send them" thing was regarding Brewkakke, who died of a phenazepam OD (probably?) and was effectively the thread's dealer. The request to plz send drugs was literally like, on the first page of the thread announcing his death.

e: it wasn't on the first page, but here's the RIP Brewkakke thread.

Yes. From memory, no one actually DID IT, but someone did ask if that's what they meant, and was immediately told that they were stupid.
