First up there was several of you guy's who
took some time to correct an email from a guy about Bill
Gates' yatch... it seemingly doesn't belong to Bill at all...
Subject: "Gate's" Yacht
Mr. Orsm I hate to be a stickler, but
the 414' Octopus that you say is owned by Bill Gates is
actualy Paul Allen's. Paul Allen is the cofounder of Microsoft
and is also worth sevral billion dollars. That doesn't detract
from its size, and the fact that it is the largest privatly
owned yacht. Allen also owns the 301'8'' Tatoosh, the 12th
largest privatly owned yacht. That dude has expensive taste!
Love the site...
Subject: Octopus - World's largest privately owned yacht.
Hey Orsm, Just to let you know that those
photos you had of Octopus were great. It is in fact the largest
privately owned yacht in the world at 416 feet and is actually
owned by Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft. However,
there are rumors that the CEO of Oracle is currently building
an even bigger yacht.
BTW, in case you ever are interested,
the biggest yacht owned by an Aussie is Kerry Packers Arctic
P at 288 feet (15th largest) and Greg Normans Aussie Rules
is 228 feet long and is currently the 36th largest.
Subject: Ravings of a moron
Hi Orsm. I'm sure that every week you
have a wanker or fifty pick some lame pointless hole in
part of your content - most likely it's an attempt to cover
up their own inadequacies in life..... Well today it's my
turn. The 125m (413 foot) yacht shown as owned by Bill Gates
is in fact owned by Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen. It's
not clear from the photos you have, but there is actually
another helipad on the bow (front) of it too. It was reportedly
worth 200 million, and costs about $250,000.00 to fill the
gas tanks! I guess that his 20 billion dollars should stretch
far enough to keep it running though. So if you are interested,
here is a link to a few pictures
of the little toy.
subject slightly.... Since you update everything when you
make a new format (trying to cover up what you used to be
like no doubt), I thought you might be interested in a trip
down memory lane. Here is the
way you were April 2001. You can try to hide it, but
the net wont let anything die.
And yet another
subject change (trying to get it all in so I don't get the
urge to bug you again - anytime soon.)... Please shut the
fuck up about the weather in Perth next summer. I live at
the bottom of New Zealand - where summer occurs somewhere
between the 12th and 13th of January. So unless you plan
to post heaps of pictures of the bikini clad Aussie chicks...
or better still, hook me up with one, I don't wanna know.
I'm done now. Keep up the good work. Thanks.
Next up were yet more replies in regards
to the email I got from Yerffaccm...
While most countries are like people(each
having their own political views), I feel it is in Yerff's
best interest to quit asking what other people think about
his political preferences. For the very reason you stated
in your initial response to him. You will always have an apposing
side to whatever you choose to believe. You can think whatever
you like about the leader of a nation. At least the leader
of this nation( the US) has stood up and made an impact on
He made a hard statement of,
"We are not going to take it anymore." Because of
the differences of opinions around the world, the US is forced
to lend aid to other countries that don't see things our way
but are willing to keep the peace(their mouths shut) if we
give them money to help them along. Greedy leaders take the
money, screw their own people out of it, and blame the US
for not giving them enough. When a war breaks out(sometimes
because of the above sentence), The US is forced to pull those
finances away from those countries to help with war efforts.
That sudden lack of monetary support from the US pisses the
other countries off and they think we are being assholes.
Which in turn has created more war.
Do you know who the hardest
working individuals on the face of the planet are? The Americans.
Every single cent that is generated for world aid is generated
by the US taxpayers, i.e., we pay taxes to the sum of stupidity.
Want the people to spend more to help with financial aid for
other countries or war efforts? Lower the interest rates.
Raise gas prices. Raise food prices. Raise the price of cigs.
Raise the price of clothing. Ta Da, billions generated. (Republicans
and Democrats are BOTH known for this particular game, so
no pointing fingers here.)
On top of all this, we are trying
to maintain a safe and peaceful setting for the American taxpayer
to keep them working. Why? So they will buy every single import
peace of shit the government allows through the ports. If
they don't feel safe, they won't buy. They don't buy, other
countries don't get money(from said taxpayers). They don't
get money from taxpayer, their way of life goes down the tubes
and they are now in an unwanted position to ask the US for
money or help to stimulate their economy. And then, because
some desert dwelling prick decides to do something completely
insane like hijack a couple of planes with innocent people
on it and commit suicide and murder of thousands of more innocent
people, some of them their own, we are forced to take action
to prevent it from reoccurring. Even in other countries. No
other country is willing to stand up as much because no other
country has what the American people have. Will power, strength,
determination, pride, and versatility. We are able to work
in every shitty environment in the world, because every country
has asked for help to get what they want done. In order for
US to help, we have to put people there, in that environment.
Be very careful when you bad
mouth the American taxpayer. It's not that we like rubbing
anything into the faces of other countries, it's more like,
we've helped you people enough, quit sniveling and don't ever
get demanding. This country allows any walk of life into its
borders. Don't like it? Leave. DON'T and I repeat, DON'T get
so caught up in your religious or political bullshit that
blowing things up is the way to make a statement when 99 percent
of Americans are so busy busting their ass working, so they
can keep the rest of the world floating, they don't even know
what the fuck your demented ass wants from life. Go to your
mommy's grave and tell HER you don't feel loved. After killing
innocent people here, WE DON'T LOVE YOU EITHER!!!
So Yeffaccm...it's looks
like you are taking the right path after all. You're leaving.
While you're over their enjoying life because you were too
weak to stick with it here, do some research. And for Gods
sake quit asking other people what you should do with your
life. Dumbasses like you end up being brainwashed into strapping
a bomb to their chest and creating more shit for the rest
of the world to clean up.

Subject: Reply to Michael Moore vs Casino
Oh, this really got me upset. While he has the right to express
his opinions, where did those rights come from? From people
willing to sacrifice their lives to protect those rights.
Does anyone think that he would be allowed to express his
opinions, no matter how well researched in another country?
I think not.
I think so! Is this another
sign of the appaling lack of knowlegde Americans have of the
rest of the world, or an example of Americna arrogance. Or
both? Don't want to rule that out. Just off the top of my
head I can think of several other countries. Here's a short
list. Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Japan.
I'm sure there's more but I have personal experience with
these these coutries so I know what I'm saying is true. Are
you really so FUCKING arrogant you think only in America can
people speak out? I think that America has less freedom to
speak now. If anyone dares say something that goes againt
the President or the war, suddenly they are un-American because
they DARE to use one of the freedoms that is supposed to be
a defining American trait!
He is living so much
better off than the people in Iraq were and now are. Why doesn't
he move over there and try to explain his way of thinking?
All he is doing is undermining the American way of life and
support for the troops over there. Why doesn't he propose
something to make things better? It is so much easier to criticize
than to offer help. Perhaps he could take the profits from
his movies and books and donate it toward the starving Iraqi
How? How is he undermining the
American way of life? By refusing to beleive lies? No one
is arguing about the quality of life and the conditions endured
in Iraq. What has been questioned is the reasons America went
to Iraq in the first place, and if you think it was to help
the Iraqi people, you are deluded. If America was there to
help because they cared, they would have safe guarded sites
like the museum with irriplaceable cultural treasures, not
only of the Iraqi people, but of the world! It would have
taken a handful of troops to protect these sites, but they
did nothing! America is in Iraq for oil! And so Bubya can
show how big his balls are because he got the bad guy Daddy
couldn't! Look at me! I got Hussein! Please don't remember
I can find Bin Laden even after 3 years! Please don't look
at what I've fone to out economy! Please don't look at what
I'm doing to your schools! I got hussein! My Daday's oil friends
are getting richer! And all it took was 1000 dead Americans!
But please ignore that cause I got Hussein! I promis large
tax breaks, and I deliver! But I give the money to the poeople
with money already. Not those who need it! But PLease ignore
that, cause I got Hussein!
Michael Moore, stop being
negative, look toward the positive, because you hate (my opinion)
the Bushes, does not give you the right to influence less
informed people with your perception of how you think things
But Bush doesw have that right?
He kept spouting that Iraq has WMD's!! Over and over! Hussein
is in Legue with Al Kaeda! Over and Over! So Michael Moore
isn't allowed to influence people with well researched facts,
but Bush is allowed to influence people with outright lies?
Amazing how America works now isn't it!
For the people that don't
know, Flint Michigan is highly oppressed and crime stricken
with poor, black people thriving on welfare and government
subsidies (translates to other peoples money)
I love that bit. Other people's
money. I have a question. Why should America, with the world's
largest economy, yet not the world's largest population, have
ANY starving people. Why should it have ANY poor? America
has the resources to take care of EVERYONE in it's borders,
but doesn't. Because those with the money are fucking greedy.
They have more money than they can possibly use or need, but
they still want more. For what? So they can decide what is
right and wrong, and be sure to have enough funds to buy politicians
to make sure others have to live as they see fit.
The Ameican dream! Any man
can make his fortune through hard work and intelligence! Only
that doesn't hold true anymore. America used to have an 80%
inheritance tax for the upper tax bracket. That let people
have the chance to make their own way. But if a big company
owns every fucking thing, what can you do but become another
faceless peon? If the rich still shelled out 80% of what they
inherited instead of finding more and more ways to keep every
last cent so that the poor has to shoulder the burden of paying
for the running of the country, maybe America could come out
of the red someday! As long as Bush and friends aren't doing
It shouldn't be other people's
money. If the rich paid employees better and the government
stopped screwing the working man (REALLY check what the GWB
government has done to labour laws!) then it wouldn't have
to BE other people's money!
It comes down to money doesn't
it? You don't want to give any more of your money away than
you have to, and you seem to thing Bush will keep more money
in your own pocket? Look at the numbers. With Bush at the
helm, Americans are screwed. America is fine. The rich will
continue to get richer. But Americans in general are screwed.
Please excuse any spelling mistakes
:) It's 2AM, and I don't tend to check my spelling to closely
when dealing with republican misinformation. I'm sure this
has come out differently than I originally intended, and may
offend some people. GOOD! Bush spending LIVES for OIL offends
me!! WAKE UP! And don't try and steal another fucking election!!
We now return you to your regularily
schedualed porn, jokes, and videos of idiots driving too fast
through traffic and crashing motorcycles! Keep up the good
Subject: Response to Reply on Michael Moore
First, I'd like to say that, as a film-maker,
I don't agree with everything Moore does. That aside, I think
the response you posted by rmcclellan was convoluted and backwards
in its thinking. He says that Moore "is undermining the
American way of life" and that he wouldn't "be allowed
to express his opinions, no matter how well researched in
another country." He goes on and on about how Moore should
shut up because his privlidge is made availabe by those he
is critising (even though that's not true). So in other words,
rmcclellan is denouncing Moore for practicing the very rights
people died defending... this makes no sense. As Noam Chomsky
once said, "If we don't believe in freedom of expression
for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all,"
and as Volatire once wrote, "I disapprove of what you
say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
Be glad there are voices out
there, even if you do not agree with them, that are challenging
the status-quo, for silence at times like these is the thing
most to be feared. This country is in grave peril, not just
from terrorists but from our own government. Those in power
use ignorance and poverty to keep people like us in check.
Question and investigate what is happening, you might be amazed
(or horrified) by what you find.
However, what is most insulting
about what rmcclellan's wrote is at the end when he talks
about Moore's "faggot" hat and Lansing. Seems we
have another homophobe on our hands. Besides, who gives a
fuck if Moore wants to wear a MSU hat? He is from Michigan...
And as for Flint, Michigan, Moore's first film (Roger and
Me) is about Moore's hometown - that's right, his first attempt
at film-making was to address the problem in his own hometown,
a problem that was created by Roger Smith (CEO of General
Motors) removing all his plants and jobs to overseas, leaving
Flint (and much of the Detroit area) destitute and impoverished
(it wasn't always "stricken with poor, black people thriving
on welfare and government subsidies (translates to other peoples
money)" - is this guy racist too?). Roger Smith, just
one more CEO in the huge list of CEO's who support and back
people like... that's right, George W. Bush (Dick Cheney -
former CEO of Halliburton, Kenneth Lay - former CEO of Enron).
Rather than listening to the main stream media (FOX news,
the child of millionare, media mogul and Bush-backer Rupert
Murdoch) leave the small fry, free speech/thought people like
Moore alone and do your duty as an American and a democrat
(as in one who believes in deomcracy, not a member of a political
party) - question the government, do the research, find your
own answers. Above all, question the status-quo, no matter
what it is.

Subject: Water Skiing anyone?
This was taken by a KTBS helicopter flying
over Cross Lake ! (For those of you who are not local, Cross
Lake is in Shreveport, La.) That has to be a HUGE gator

Just to let you know, the pictures you
have on your site of the gator with deer is not from Cross
Lake, LA. The credit given to KTBS is false. KTBS has not

that last month, half of one percent of your visitors to

Subject: cruisers - for the weak
Hi, As another person recently inducted
into motorcycle riding - I too thought cruisers / tourers
were pretty sweet. Yesterday I had taken my bike (Kawasaki
GPX-250R in case you were curious) into the bike shop for
a tune up and as I was waiting for a cab to come pick me
up and deliver me to work, a honda goldwing cruised in with
Britney blazing over the four speaker radio. Pretty appauling
for a club rider and a damned expensive bike. The image
of the rough, tough, take no shit biker was there. The music
took it away.

be impressed, and let you try a few rounds with it.
5) Your primary handgun doesn?t mind if you have a backup.
6) Your handgun will stay with you even when you?re out of
