DEAR ARnR

I'm assuming you're reading this... and on behalf of the good people everywhere that you're mocking, I have a few things to say. QUIT making FUN of PEOPLE like ME.

You'd probably find it somehow humorous that the only t-shirts (or casual clothing attire at all) that I own are in some way coaster/park related (outside of my Sunday/professional clothes, of course). Get over it and leave people like me alone. For example, I have a chest of drawers (7 different drawers) where each drawer is dedicated to a park chain - - - - and then the coaster shirts (that exist w/in the parks of that chain) are organized alphabetically by coaster titles. Well, so what? - laugh all you want - but this makes dressing easier for me.

You're probably like several of my non-riding friends
who were confused when they asked me (after my Euro-trip) "how was the Eiffel tower?" (to which I responded) "I don't remember that drop ride - but then we went on so many - maybe I've forgotten it"

Having read some of your bites - you'd probably think it was over the top that I (and a couple of friends - Al W and Allen Ray "of hope") recently attended several parks with the SOLE purpose of RATING the RESTROOMS (by certain criteria - construction company / location / stocking / stock companies(paper and soap) etc / comfort and overall aesthetics. There really is a difference in park restrooms, and I have the VIDEO FOOTAGE to PROVE it.

Quit making it seem like there's something wrong with
me

You'd probably think there was a problem with me wanting to get to the 300th COASTER mark SO badly, that (in order to be able to announce it at an imminent enthusiast event)... I stole a shopping cart from a local grocery store and rode it down my driveway (in 5 different ways - - sitting/standing/backwards - etc) in order to be able to say in good conscious" "Yes, I'm right at 300." At least I didn't lie to my peers.

Anyway, that's all I have to say for now

On behalf of myself (and likely many on this and other sites)

You know, I'm REALLY starting to get p!$$ed off with ARnR. I don't get offended easily, but this I did, and such a site is nothing but trouble, and Al should be held accountable for putting up the link. Mind you, I like a good laugh, but ArnR is taking things too far... though did you hear that SFKK would let cousins marry at the park? How bloody(funny) awful is that?

I agree. I don't find half of this crap funny.
I also think it is only adding to a growing resentment toward enthusiast by parks.

Actually Chuck, when i first checked out ARnR, I didn't get it, then i read it again and couldn't stop laughing. I don't go often, but I do enjoy it. I was being sarcastic with my earlier post.

BTW, I forgot to mention chuck that it's all in good fun, now if you'll excuse me, i have to go alphabeticalize my my one Disney World shirt and my one CP shirt with WT on it. thanks Rev! this is going to take all day.

Yes Chuck, you're right. Without ARN&R, the amusement industry would never have realized that 95% of its fans were complete losers.

Anyone notice that ARnR links to this post on their site now? Maybe they should get to know the Rev before they assume he was serious. Apparently it's a good thing they didn't change their name to "subletelyfanatic". Everyone loves ARnR until they hit them close to home. I wonder if Mr Alvey will continue to be a huge fan now that they've nominated him for "Most Asinine Post About S:ROS Incident". These guys seem to be more and more about insulting people and less about being funny nowadays.

I don't mind jokingly being funny and poking fun at ourselves. I think the coverall insults are no less than singling out certain people.

Maybe some deserve it, Maybe some don't.

With all of this going on, it reminds of a well thought TV show here in Canada called the Trailor Park Boys. It depicts life in a trailor park and the crooks who live there in Nova Scotia. Now many don't like the show mainly because they take it serious, but when you let your self go,it's an amazingly funny show. In many ways, that is why I enjoy ARnR. It's like any other hobby, you'll always have sites that poke fun at themselves, and if ARnR made fun of me, I'd have no problem as long as I find it amusing in some sort of way.

Is that the show where the guys act like they are going to pimp out the women of the park and stuff like that.

There used to be a couple shows shown here in the states that were hilarious if you watched em with somone but were kinda insulting if you watched alone. Kids in the Hall and Benny Hill used to make fun of everything.

Chuck, that is the show that pimped out women to the rest of the park. they opened up a brothel using all the women of the park, but they ran out of women and had to use Corey and Trevor, needless to say bubbles was pissed about it. As for benny hill, no one will touch him, he was a bloody genious, as were Kids In the Hall were. Surprise!

For the record, insulting other people is ALWAYS funny. I just meant that they used to come up with a lot of really clever stories and now they just take things that other people say and turn them around. I don't know if they're running out of ideas or what.

I appreciate the support. It's a very rare thing.
I have no friends and my life has no purpose.

If anyone's going to be at any park anytime this summer look for me. I'm about 5' 10, brown hair, and my cap will match my shirt ("boycott arnr"). Don't believe the lies - I typically wear deodorant. I'll be my myself.

you just think you're better than me because you've never rated the restrooms in a park. You're just as mean as all the others. I recommend Wild Ones Coaster Club to discover more "kinder, gentler, congenial" enthusiasts who don't mind if people have coin collections and participate in bowling leagues.

That is sad that you only visit the site "once every few months". I'm usually on here at least 3 times a day to find out what's going on. Like the Rev said, maybe you're just hanging out with the wrong kind of enthusiasts. You're probably the type of person who reads THAT website and laughs at the atrocities they conjure up. Your support would be much more useful for the Boycott than the site we fight against.

I think the site is hilarious. You'll die younger than you should if you continue to demonstrate Ellis's catastrophic thoughts and have poor coping techniques.

Is this your professional opinion DrAllan? It's amazing that you only visit this site once every couple of months, but here you have been to the site twice within a couple of days and under 2 different user names. This must just be a fluke, huh? I still say you wouldn't find the site nearly as funny if it was you they were making fun of. How do you think poor Lee Coaster feels now that he has the site of the week?

I am posting on two different names because I thought there was something wrong with my account during the weekend outage. I don't really care how he feels, because he is not paying me to give my opinion. Don't you have more important things to do? You are probably an adult with a crappy job; I am a student with a few weeks off before I teach summer school physics. It is sad that you participate in this ridiculous nonsense on a regular basis.

Wow! 3 times in 1 week! That must be a new record for you checking the boards since you usually only check them once every couple of months. I actually have a great job that I love. It pays really well and I get to work with a lot of great people. I'm not exactly sure what "ridiculous nonsense" it is that you think I participate in "on a regular basis". Can you clarify that for me in a couple of months when you check the boards again? Thanks, and if you haven't signed the petition yet, I hope you will do it soon.

Aaron, don't forget to count the other 2 times he posted in the last couple of days in the other thread by the Rev entitled " i think i have lost the meaning of my life" That too is mildly neurotic...urr i mean interesting. He appearantly feels quite a bit superior to the rest of us little dullards on the board.

You can't fool me, Ed. I know what's going on. I can't say I blame you guys, though. I sucked up to Arnr to to get referenced on their site. Then, I get referenced by Rob Alvey. Continuing, Al W gets lumped in with me in a post as being one of "those" kinds of enthusiasts. Next, I was very deliquent getting those chapter 12 tapes to Rob and Vic. Then, of course, there's the fact that ANY of those videos were even made in the first place. Also, I recently admitted to someone (in confidence) that I didn't really like Al's mom all that much. Finally, the last post I remember, I said something like "love ya" to you - and I'm certain that's all you could take.

All I get now is:

"You are not allowed access to this board"

I even tried re-registering as "The Rev" instead of
"TheReverend" hoping you guys would think I was a different Reverend (maybe Cliff Harris). It didn't work, obviously, even though it still says "newest member - The Rev"

If it's any consolation, I am sorry - but I completely understand

I'm not completely certain what "agita" is - I'm thinking it's some kind of rare disease. If Dr.Alan is reading this, I hope he'll give Jodi a diagnosis - or help me have a thorough understanding of what this entails. If the Doc won't say, I'll have to ask my mother.

Please, for your own sake - don't release those shirts.That's not a good idea, I'm afraid. I would encourage you to make "BAN the REV" or "BOYCOTT the CHRONICLES" t-shirts instead. How about:

You're right, Allan PhD. I apologize for being so angry with you and ARnR. Due to your wise comments, I am now officially ending the Boycott against ARnR. I encourage everyone to visit the site and enjoy the hilarious articles they write. Thank you Dr Allan for opening my eyes to the anger which has plagued my life for so long. Anyone who has met me knows that I used to be one of the angriest people in the world, but no more. From now on I'm a changed man. No more anger for me. Thank you again, and where do I send the bill?

I don't know if that evil "One" Aaron has really changed from his error of anger, but rest assured Doctor, you've changed ME.

Not only have I renounced my faith, resigned my church and abandoned my mother (she's looking forward to moving in btw - she's excited about living with someone who can sign her thyroid prescription) -
but my whole perspective for living life has taken a significant turn. All because of... the DOCTOR.

I'm guessing that many others will change soon, as well. Angry Darren will soon be "kind" Darren.
Guido De Vito will become courteous. CoasterBryan will come back, for good this time. People will start actually LIKING coasters n gravy productions. Arnr will genuinely apologize - to each individual - for
their barbs and jabs.

All because of you, Doctor

I apologize, Guido. I must've overestimated the fine

That said, however... I'm (strangely enough) sensing a kind of "re-kindling" of my faith.

I will give you benzodiazepines when you can draw just one of them. And, years of experience or not, I'll still be making more money in my first year out than you will in the next 5 years or more. I know you will respond with some other idiotic post, but it's a small price for me to pay when I'll be rolling in money.

Lots. The modern male role is centered primarily on the man's ability to provide for his family. The traditional male role was the same, but instead of money it was physical power. The traditional role still carries over today, and the conflict between the two is regarded as the primary reason for men's "midlife crisis."

Re: DEAR ARnR by MABrider MABrider Profile at 5/30/04 4:56:34 PM

> pay when I'll be rolling in money.

I have always thought that doctors make bunches of money but never have much time to enjoy it during the daily routine of life.
Take the time honored example of a male doctor (no offense to any female physicians).
They can afford houses larger and more costly (than mine) and drive cars that are more expensive to buy (than mine) but over the years I have been able to attend all my kid's night time school events and sporting events, and other such things, but the Doctor Dads in the area never seem to be there. Not to mention the ability to take trips, just go out "for nothing" on a given weeknight/weekend, that was easy for me to do. Doctors have too much to be responsible for, (yes, I know, providing for the well being of others, yours truly included, but that's another story, so don't go there here). They are always on call and/or work hours at hospitals that I would never be interested in. The family suffers. I think to myself why be a doctor and get married and have kids and buy large houses and fill it with all the latest gizmos money can buy when you can't really enjoy them all? "Them" being the material things obtained by money. The family? Oh yeah, wifey and the kids sure do enjoy it all as the days roll on.

My advice is don't become a married doctor. Don't do that do others. You should take all that money, place it on a lonely bed, and roll in it there. Just don't sweat too much in doing so, you may not look good green.

Not a bad point. Doctors do work a lot of hours, but it is fine if you enjoy working long hours. My father is a lawyer and routinely bills 80 hours per week. He works a lot, enjoys it, and has enough spare time to spend with the family. And, as you get older, you can take more and more time off. I see your point and it is a valid opinion, but I think if a doctor enjoys his job, then I'd disagree with you.

Apparently not enough time, since at least one of his kids turned out to be a big horse's rear.

The best thing about being a doctor is that your wife can cheat on you with the pool boy and take half of everything you own in a nasty divorce leaving you lonely and empty inside. Sure you'll get to see your kids one weekend a month and I'm sure even half of your future salary is more than the rest of us here make combined, but is it worth it when the cleaning lady comes in one day and finds you dead after overdosing on prescription pain medication? Have a good life. God help me if my life is ever in your hands. You'll probably stop halfway through the surgery to check your stock portfolio.

Could you briefly explain Quantum Physics for us DrAllan? I've always been interested in it, but my stupid mind could only get past simple equations in school. Take your time getting back to me as I'm sure I'll still be here 10, 20, even 30 years from now.
