Again tho, excellent telescope. I can't say enough good things about it.
Having just read Ella J.'s daft put-down of the book via 27bslash6.com, I decided it would really be worth the heavily discounted price if for nothing more than to stick it to that sad, dreary, chubby carrot-up-the-arse. And yes, that can be a noun as well as an adjective; you don't think I would lie about something like that on Amazon's web site, do you?
Ella J., my hat is tipped. And by way of repaying the favour, if you would like some suggestions how to remove that obviously large and intractable vegetable from your fundament without incurring equally large and intractable proctologist's bills, please get in touch with either myself or David. It involves drawings of spiders, so you'd probably want to sharpen your pencil.
The book, by the way [that's BTW to you, Ella J.], is hilarious.
I may have to sue him, because I just spit coffee on my work monitors. I was reading about Bill's insight of Google Images, and when I read "Horse Dicks" I was mid-coffedrink, and spit coffee all over my monitors. Now my boss is upset.
This may teach me that I am to do work while at work.
Thank you Mr. Thorne. I don't think you're a foggot.
In his emails, Thorne manages to walk the obnoxious without ever having to resort to rudeness. It's hard to believe these people continue to reply to him. The book is full of articles and emails from his website, but the best are the emails with pictures, either along the same lines as the spider or where people ask him to create something for them but give him way too much room to interpret their directions. Another favorite is a email conversation between Thorne and a hate mailer beginning with "I have read your website and it is obviously that your a foggot."
Those who believe that adults should act as such and take life seriously will find Thorne and The Internet is a Playground offensive. Most, I think, will wish they'd found him and his website sooner. Seriously funny on a hard to describe level, you'll either "get" David Thorne and his book - or you just won't. In my case, The Internet is a Playground caused out of control laughter and caused people to look at me funny.
