Luckily the fire crew isn't part of the local community who post on Topix or Borovent.
Otherwise the place would have burned to the ground due to them being to busy.

I know it makes you feel better to delude yourself into thinking locals are posting or even reading here but they aren't. Of the 4 people posting here none are local. It seems to me that real locals read the article on the evening sun or the gettysburg times sites and read the comments or post there. There's no reason for them to come here to Topix and they clearly do not. This forum is for entertainment, not serious rational discussion. You talk a lot about borovent. If it's the attention of locals you're so desperate to attract I'm sure you'd get all you could handle posting there or on the evening sun article. If you want to keep playing in my sandbox you're more than welcome but you need to stop kidding yourself that posting here is reaching even one Gettysburg local or that anyone believes even a shred of what's posted here.

Obsessed much? You hang on my every word. LOL The Evening Sun ow that's a joke, that small town rag isn't worth the dog taking a crap on.
So that's it the locals just whine away on Borovent yet do nothing for their community EXCEPT whine on Borovent.
Don't you remember how I got here? I got here because YOUR local community was airing their dirty laundry online. Snicker, all they ever wanted was a casino, but no casino was coming there way. So, now your left with reenactors, trinket shops and dwindling tourism, and the locals!! Hardy har har har
And your reply would be?

Hang on your every word? There's that narcissism again. I think it's the other way around. If I leave you're left talking to yourself:) Don't know borovent. I'll take your word for it since you seem to be a regular visitor and endlessly obsess over what they're talking about. I'm left with the theater, the orchestra, the ballet, 3 great pro sports venues, the art museum, Franklin Institute, dozens of works class restaurants I can walk to. So where am I from? Your insistence that I'm local exceeds the foolishness of the people who keep calling you Dani

Oh so either you live in New Hope with the fellas, or live in Filthydelphia which I wouldn't brag about either. I'd actually rather live in Gettysburg ( I can't believe I'm typing that) as opposed to Filthydelphia. I can tell you're an Eagles fan aren't you? How to sum up an Eagles fans....losers. Well, like they ALWAYS say, we'll get em next year!!! LMAO!

You know I never heard ghey until you and old 20 names started throwing it around. I'm starting to think there may only be 3 posters here. You need to come up with something better than your ignorant bigoted homophobia to get at me.

There's a whole lot of space between Philly and New Hope my darling but yes, I live on Rittenhouse Square. Filtydelphia? Really? That's original, but only in the sense that it's Filthadelphia and I usually only hear it from douchey New Yorkers. Yep Eagles fan. Season ticket holder for Flyers, Eagles, and Phillies for a decade. And yes I like the arts. You should try and get out more, get a little culture in your life. You sound like one of those dumb hicks you're always railing against in your attempts to rile a renaissance man like me.

Figured you were an Eagles fan. The lowest of the low. Eagles fan are as crappy as their team. Its well documented that Eagles fans display the worst in sportsmanship. But, when you're constanting losing, its stands to reason. Now run along to New Hope and enjoy a real GHEY day! BTW, I succeeded in my quest, can you guess what that is?

"douchey"?? its becoming more apparent that's becoming a real ghey day.
I'm planning on a move and was wondering if I could live next to you at the corner of Douchy and Ghey. I really don't want to live in a row home in Filthadelphia but I wanted to display my Pittsburgh Steelers flag PROUDLY. You don't think that would cause an issue do you? Eagles fans are so warm and friendly to fans of other teams.

So now I'm a "ghey" meatheaded poor sport Eagles fan and my city is full of row homes? You're just throwing it all at the wall to see if any sticks now, aren't you? I can't wait to see what you come up with next. I should have left this topic as one on those "Last By - Pink Eye Posts - 1" threads I see all over Topix.

why I never stated that Eagles fans are a bunch of sore losers, did I? I may think ( along with everyone else) they are, but I'd never post it. Its OK Eagles fan there's always next year. Your city isn't full of row homes? Did I miss something? OK, how about crime, filth and gheys running around. Why if I went to Filthydelphia and closed my eyes, I might think I'm in Gettysburg. If I heard the name Costard I might think I was at the Icandy bar.

My city is full of all kinds of homes, check any real estate site. There's tons of row homes sure, but there's twins, townhomes, single family homes. Those really high buildings? People live in those. I know, crazy right? They're called condos and some go for 10's of millions of dollars. There's also huge old estates in several areas getting the same prices. Birthplace of the nation remember. And those "gheys" you hate so much are just fabulous for the community. But oh the crime. Big topic on these threads. There's tons of crime. It's a major metro area what do you expect. Unlike you and old 20 names I don't obsess over it (especially not in communities I have no ties to). And unlike you and old 20 names I'm not the type to live in fear of anything. Except maybe an 0-16 season

you do obsess over these threads you read and reply. As far as a community that I have no ties to, are you so sure of that? Do you have ties to this community, or are you just here for the shyts and giggles of it all?

I think he meant he doesn't even obsess over crime in his own community and thinks it funny for people to obsess over crime in random places, especially a small rural town like Gettysburg. I don't think he has ties. I think he only comes here because he's attracted to you sexually. So you can either be the Lennay to his Manti or describe yourself and ruin the fantasy. Of course I could be totally wrong

might want to change your name to, Fan of the losers" instead of "bleeds green" although it both relays the same message, I support the team that always loses.
