Huh?

Billy, could you elaborate? I'm apparently too dense to get your point (if there is one).

  • Olds, sorry that you were not administered any pre-op sedation (or at least a lubricant) prior to the history version of your colonoscopy.
    • As I recall, Icon charged extra β€” Dan Brown, Sun Feb 05 14:14
      for the pre-op sedation. He was that kind of guy. By the way, I have quite a collection of signed Boyer post-op works, which I am very willing to sell to any uninitiated collector of misinformation.

        Hey Dan, I remember years ago visiting Boyer’s (so called) ranch in New Mexico. I questioned Glenn multiple times about the β€œClum Manuscript” and asked multiple times if I could check it out. As... more

          I heard Boyer used to charge $2.00 to see the bed he claimed Earp passed away in. Over-charges aside, I have wondered to what degree, if any, Boyer believed his own lies? He invested most of his adult... more
          • Wyatt Earp’s Death Bed…. β€” B.J., Mon Feb 06 9:24
            Boyer used to host an annual get-together at his (so called) ranch. I remember one lady who was a North Texas University Professor, each year would claim β€œdibs” as the Boyerite who was allowed to sleep... more
            • Wbo knows what depravity lurks β€” Dan Brown, Mon Feb 06 12:45
              in the hearts of boyerites? His followers were almost cult-like in their defense of him. That's a state only charismatic sociopaths can inspire. As a psychologist you might want to interview her. Get her... more
          • You and Casey have the deep pleasure in β€” Dan Brown, Mon Feb 06 8:36
            knowing that Icon hated you. He hated this site. He hated being exposed. On the bright side, BJ's Tombstone History Forum probably hastened his final ride...still, his heirs did get a large sum of money... more

              This history forum was simply a conduit for the real history heavyweights, all of whom exposed Boyer. The above includes Jack Burrows, Casey Tefertiller, Jeff Morey, Gary Roberts and several others.... more
              • Boyer Wars β€” Pam Potter, Wed Feb 08 7:08
                "It was the best of times, it was the west of times". The Boyer wars, as they played out on this forum were informative, mentally stimulating and cringe worthy. Maybe it was all necessary to expose fraud... more
                • Well said, Pam. β€” olds, Wed Feb 08 8:00
                  I certainly posted some cringeworthy stuff, a lot of it actually, back in the day that I wish I hadn't. (Can I plead youth?) But you are correct, it was stimulating, despite the "venom." Unlike yourself,... more
                  • Think of it as frontier justice β€” Don't Blame Me, Sat Feb 18 14:36
                    Boyer supplied the rope, Terry the tree, and we just sort of kicked the chair. To Boyer's credit, he just took it in the wrong way.
                • Oops β€” pam Potter, Wed Feb 08 7:10
                  That should have read "worst" not west but hey considering the topic "west" kind of fits.

      • Re: Huh? β€” B.J., Sun Feb 05 16:00
        Olds, you only posted one semi-coherent sentence. Are you feeling un-well?
        • LOL. β€” olds, Sun Feb 05 20:26
          It's less a matter of feeling unwell than being unwell. That said, I do so loath concision. And clarity, clarity too, which more often than not only confounds.
          • One might guess why you fall into β€” Dan Brown, Mon Feb 06 12:49
            the post modernist camp or valley or high plain or whatever you might prefer to call or not call it. Speaking for myself, clarity has never done me much good. It's not like winning the lottery.
            • I can explain that, Dan. β€” olds, Mon Feb 06 15:30
              The pomo camp thing. I was mentored as an undergrad by Dr. Ihab Hassan. You can Google him, but to save you the trouble, I'll just remark that he was one of the earliest American (he was himself Egyptian)... more

                  a bad thing, or a wash? Well, if He or She or It is clearly on my side, I might only wish that that entity or energy or force or First Cause or whatever, was a little less clear about it. Half the... more

                Oh...My...Gosh! I see that Olds is back at this primary job of wordsmithing! Never fails to quick, quick send me scurrying for my Oxford! Don't stop, Olds; keeps us old folks on out toes!
                • Well, that is my primary job β€” olds, Tue Feb 07 10:06
                  I reckon, though I feel at this point that I had little say in the matter. I didn't choose it, it chose me. Anyway, being old myself, I suppose you could say, Sharon, that I'm keeping myself on my toes... more

                      Me too Sharon. I like discussions that make me think outside the box.

                        Great minds, Pam! At my age, I need all the prodding y'all can provide!
