    Judging by the URL, that photo was uploaded during June of 2014. If it was legit, it would have a timestamp from decades ago.

    Since you seem to be struggling with starting your haiku, I'll pen one for your usage:

    Or how about this one:

    As you can see, strong improvisational skills are needed when practicing the noble art of haiku; it sometimes becomes necessary to add non-sequitur words into the mix to aid in the poetic flow. You'll pick it up eventually.

    It's pretty easy to ignore the trolls and stick to the substantial posts in a thread most of the time. Don't let yourself get drawn in by irrelevant unsubstantiated posts and the thread won't get derailed.

    I am confused...I thought you had no problem with racism, sexism or bigotry. Hypocrite!

    :lol: Are you a female?

    Oh, the talk about the German gene and this and that and the other, great stuff for the psychologist's office. Now, I know a good one, you should see him:

    Dr. Von KickhiminZheAss.


    Careful. The couch is more like a futon.

    I take it you neglected to read my entire post or the article I linked to in that thread? It was speaking about women gaining power from those references to being called a girl. Try harder Quantum. Maybe you can convince yourself.

    BTW Where did I defend anyone over a sexist remark? Can you find a quote from me or a thank you?

    Actually, I didn't come up with the German gene thing. That was peach...I just thought it was hilarious and ran with it.

    Quantum's sole mission on this board is to get himself into arguments so he can deflect and divert until you end up talking about a completely different subject. Any subject at all as long as it gets him as far away from his obvious lapses in intelligence as possible.

    Somehow we have gone from me saying I dont condone you calling Gracie a **** to I am defending you because you are Black even though she called you a Negro by her own admission.
