Umm, I read on here a while back the the una farter had passed away. If so, why is he still posting on the bible thread? Not more than 55 minutes ago. Sure looks and acts like the una farter. Puzzling indeed.
not puzzling really, look at the syntax carefully and you should be able to tell if it's the same persona.

I don't believe there ever was a real Una that died a few weeks ago. The man I saw on the funeral home site who was supposedly Una did not look like the type of man who would have posted profanities the way Una did. I think Una is actually a created persona by a topix employee who trolls these threads just to stir up conversation and keep these threads going. The Una on this thread basically became ineffective (by topix standards) so the persona was made to look like it passed away, but that persona lives on in the other threads. There is a lot of deceit that goes on in topix and personas are created just to keep these threads going. Did anyone ever wonder why Una's profanities weren't being deleted early on? It was only when I pointed it out and started questioning the topix mods did they then start deleting his posts to make it look like he was just another regular poster when in fact he really was just another topix created persona.
The deceit of these topix mods and hired trolls sickens me because it is so obvious to me.
I wouldn't quite say a person's appearance or religious beliefs would totally prevent that individual from using profanity. Una knew scriptures well. Did he not retire from a gas company thus Una Farter. His comedy, his barbs, his sincerity could all be ascertained through just how he presented himself. The computer allows us a means to vent. It gives us a place to congregate without being judged unmercifully by how we truly believe. I have found the biggest hypocrites hide behind the church. Una admitted going to church. He never hid his true self. We chose to accept him as a human man, not perfect and without guile. Outspoken. I was glad to know he had family to spend Christmas dinner. His health was poor, but Boy he could stir up some stuff on here. LOL. Enough said. I'm calling it a night.

i suppose you are right about the mod thing but i just don't see why it matters so much. pleasant conversation is all most of us are seeking on here it seems, and maybe to hear a different point of view than our own once in a awhile. if it happens to be a to pix spy or mod or Gene Simmons who cares.....

Hello DontCare, nice to see your post. Just trying to provide some "expert advice" on helping solve the debate on nuclear power. Expelling internal gas is cost efficient and less damaging to the earth and plants. May be a bit smelly...hehehe

Naw, I just do this for free. It surely must be free since I only have $8.51 in the check book and $61.40 in cash to last about another 3 weeks. But if Topix wants to send me check, I will spend even more time on here. LOL But if they don't, maybe I can sell some eggs. I totally disagree with the anagrammer and if I harbored as many negative thoughts as that poster, I would not even waste my time coming here in the first place and would not need to take a break.

Good Post and I totally agree. The real UNA is gone and I miss him as much as anyone although we disagreed more often than not. Numerous times I would have just liked to have reached through the screen and smack him. LOL UNa never really used outright profanity (as defined by some), but had many pseudo words such as "arse".

Too often people try to merge their own opinions and belief systems into other's expected lifestyles, and when the other person does not accept those opinions as "Gospel", then they are considered to be deceitful, hypocritical. and non-Christian. Una was unique and for that I admire him.

Hi Betty. I agree and unless one has some axe to grind, what difference does it really make as to who might be a mod or not. Most people read and post here just for entertainment purposes anyways.

@Lala.. I read your suggestion on how I should proceed with a relationship with my best friend, but I won't jump onboard. My friend and I have both lived alone for way too long to try to reinvent a new lifestyle at this late stage in our lives. Too often, people live alone yet exist in the same house and that is even worse. Thanks, but no thanks. We have the best of both worlds and no plans to change anything.

Dog is finally back from the tree and chasing any boondock boogers, so it is time to get off here for now. I would stay longer but Topix has not sent any money. LOL Reminds me of the song with the line that says "Nothing from nothing, leaves nothing" LOL

I don't know about that. I spoke to Una myself. And, believe me, I am not a hired goon by Topix. Also, I think if Una HAD been a Topix paid employee, he wouldn't have put up with some of the things that he had to put up with. A LOT of Una's posts were deleted. A LOT. Anything here that's reported is removed. I've seen it.

Morning. Not much going on, looks like a good day out there to spend outside. Seems there is a race of some sort today, not a fan, but if it keeps some of the rednecks off the road that's a good thing. To the regulars, hold down the fort and best to you all.

being true to yourself and being sincerely outspoken is one thing, however, it's hard for me to find any redeeming quality in someone who attacks others with profanity and crass language. That's like saying you admire the honesty of a bigot who openly expresses his hatred of others. If you admire the fact that he could stir up anger in others by what he said here, I don't find any redeeming quality in that either.

having nothing is liberating...it means you have no attachment to material things and thus you are free. It is actually not such a bad state of being.

Good morning bird threaders, what a beautiful day. I checked in last night but only seen drop ins and the nonsense about Una. May he RIP.

Our Wildcats finally won in overtime last night and we were all exhausted just watching the last part of the game and then overtime. It was an exciting game and it was ESPN Game Day.

That sure was some wreck AW was talking about. It is a wonder a lot more people were not hurt or killed. That tire jumping the fence was something.

For those who hadn't seen it:

Here's what the crash involving Kyle Larson and 11 other Nationwide drivers looked like from the grandstands.

Tyler Andersen, a resident of Jacksonville Beach, Fla., was at the Drive for COPD 300 on Saturday and was filming the final lap when Kyle Larson's car got turned into the catchfence just in front of him and debris from his car flew into the grandstands.

You can see the panic in the stands in the crash's aftermath and the tire that flew over the catchfence landed just feet from Anderson.

At least 28 fans were injured in the crash, two critically, which also damaged the catchfence. Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood said that the fence would be repaired in time for Sunday's Daytona 500.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nascar-from-the...

Watching all of those fans pour in for today's race in 80 degree weather, shorts, sleeveless shirts etc...makes me anxious for spring and summer. It is gorgeous out now and I will be grateful for our good weather compared to others dealing with the white stuff. lol

Good morning Belie, I tend to agree on your comment about the mods and all the shills that appear in droves from time to time. But I doubt it will run me off. If Una and a few others haven't so far, I doubt those trolls or paid shills will either. I forgave Una for his attacks on me and he forgave me for my retaliations. I do miss him though and no one can convince me he is still posting somewhere. It may be to spare his family that someone is posting as him so people won't think that church deacon/treasurer in the obit would be capable of the comments he made on many threads. I am surprise that Dont Care believes he is posting on a thread. Must be one of this friends posting and DC is just playing along. I am not buying it. We know he is gone. He may very well spent his last breath tapping keys in this thread.

I hope you have a good day Belie.:)

For the BIRDS:

Mom laid the egg at approximately 6:47pm MT. We're all wishing Mom and Dad at Fort St. Vrain a very successful 2013 season!

Here's proof that even birds are big jerks sometimes

No one ever talks about survival of the nicest out there in the wild, and there's a reason for that. We can only assume that animal jerks like this grabby little bird will probably live forever.

Just look at that sweet little kangaroo just peacefully eating a banana (or femur or whatever) and presumably humming Australian folk songs in his head, oblivious to the cunning bird swooping in from behind. The bird comes in quick as a flash and makes his getaway, leaving the kangaroo to look much like we do when our fingers make it to the bottom of the Dorito bag earlier than we intended. Next time keep your treats in your pouch, kangaroo. Haven't had enough of jerky animals for one day? Click through the gallery above to see even more.[Source]

Seems like every morning I wake up to even more birds singing outside my window. Spring is so close. I love it. The first thing I do is go out and feed them to thank them for their tunes.:)
