You must have a really understanding and patient wife, just doesn't seem there's enough time in the day to research all the stuff you speak so eloquently and confidently on. Maybe that's why you never cite any real sources or documents, just so busy reading up on everything it must just slip your mind.
    I actually am a little obsessed on anything I get into. You've all noticed that behavior in me - townships, etc.. I'm fortunate to have a job where I'm the boss and have a lot of free time. So yes I'm a voracious student of many things.

    And you know, Simon, there aren't "sources" for everything -not even in the Internet age. A lot of what I study is in books that aren't published on Internet - yet. Wikipedia is pretty good - but even you and I can update Wiki. I'm always wary of their sourcing.

    And on this recent debate - it wouldn't be "right" to reveal insiders ( sources ) as Cowboy said. I paid some people a "little" to get a peek "inside".

    As for my wife - she's as into her world as I am in mine.. We spend loads of time apart in our worlds and we're good! Just celebrated 30 years of marriage.. That's rare these days.. .. But thanks for being concerned for my marriage, Simon..
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Oh I agree, with regard to these sources you speak of here best not to bring them out into the open over a simple debate. Wouldn't of hurt to throw some ATT contracts or policy pages out there to back up some of the stuff you were referring to for roaming and contracts etc. Doesn't matter now though, not gonna beat a dead horse. You believe what you believe as do I. I'm fine with that. I just don't think I have ever seen you site a source or link to a page to support your arguments. Correct me if I'm wrong, that will require you doing some research and linking to some proof though. Up for the challenge? lol

    And speaking of water. Did you know most water sold is not actually spring water. Even tho a good but of it is labeled as such. What a hoax

    As the authority here in Grantology, I would like to point out a few things. These are direct quotes.

    Grant:"I am always well studied on every topic I comment on, Cowboy. Be assured of that."

    When I challenged this absurd comment, he replied with this.

    Grant:"I never claimed large study on that topic as I have here."

    What's important to notice here is that to Grant, he didn't say anything wrong because he later said he didn't claim "large study". Large being the operative word here. What he doesn't see is that he didn't offer this kind of distinction when he made the claim "always" studied. It is only when he is called out on things and asked to account for his bold statements does he begin to argue with semantics. Accuracy to him is only important when it isn't applied to him. This is not a matter of opinion or impression, it is facts substantiated by many sources that I do not have to cite. Just accept me at my word the way Grant wants everyone to believe that whenever he makes a claim, we are all suppose to blindly accept it as fact. This way of behavior is applied to many businesses like journalism, loan officers, investment firms, lawyers, etc. No need to substantiate your claims, just say it is so and it will be so.

    This has been a public service announcement from your local specialist in Grantology. Thanks for listening.

    I've been quit too long. The people who sell "non-spring" water as " spring water are not actually immoral. Since ALL water has been on earth for EXACTLY 187.124 billion years, ALL of it has to have been squirted out of a natural spring at some point.

    No way Cowboy will dress up as John Wayne. A true okie will go as Bill Tilghman!!

    Did I use enough ALLCAPPS?

    No need to thank me Cowboy, I am here to offer my considerable expertise on this subject. I have amassed over 4,200 thanks and 95.2579% of those are from my expertise in Grantology. While some make icons, walls, themes, and widgets; I on the other hand offer goggles to those caught in a sand storm.

    I just want to do my part to help the community.

    What Krima always does to pettifog issues is to quote short 5 word statements from a person out of context - carefully using his editing tools.. Even changing punctuation - to make his points.. He'll occasionally even insert a word to bolster his case. This is the stuff of Dan Rather of CBS fame that got his azz fired when, after not having enough evidence to back up the narrative he wanted to create about Bush, he just MADE up evidence. Thank goodness he was caught.

    But I'm used to this. Krima has stalked me for almost 2 years - making up a "narrative". Most enjoy it - because at the end if the day they can't really refute my points with evidence nor "beat their wives" to feel superior to another. So they prefer ganging up on me.

    It is the "forum way". A clique of power brokers - creating group think over the masses and choosing a couple of people to undermine.. so they can stay in power.. All good..

    Unsubscribing from the thread again.. Direct replies to me in PM. I won't read them if they're here. Once a gang up mentality happens, usually led by Krima.. I'm out..

    You would think being as old as he is he could admit flaw and actually man up to his flaws. Instead of running away. Thats okay I am sure he will soon be back with some more ridicules claims!

    Hahaha. How did "beating wives" come into play here. No editing needed, I copied and pasted his comments.

    I was just trying to "expand his thinking". This is the exact defense he used to justify his self righteous comments to Cowboy. How is what I did anything different.

    I will say this, I haven't heard him accuse me of stalking him for quite sometime. I must have really struck a nerve with him. Sorry Grant, no hard feelings. We are all good bro.

    Ok ok. The misdirection was actually the horses fault. In my post. And that's not my fault. Cause John Wayne rode horses in movies. When in reality. He didn't like riding horses at all
