Masterful Kimball Spanks Kasten and Makes me Come

Biddy here.

Arthur has asked me to look after this one as I have taken a shine against Kasten. Arthur knows that if Kasten comes anywhere near him, I’ll throttle her first and then I’ll wallop him second with a frying pan. Arthur likes strong women. He likes me.

Oh Kimbally, Kimbles, sweetykins. You are nearly as masterful as Arthur when he has a drink in him and a raging horn. That Kasten was getting too mouthy, too flippity with her replies and her retorts. She thought she could cheek her way through Updates, making cowering cringies out of normally languid men. Why, even Lehmberg was sent ascurrying back to his mouse hole after being bush whacked by the rolling pin bearing harridan. Held high in her hand were two small sorry looking round things and Alfred forevermore squeaks in a high voice. But her thunderball progress came to a crashing, juddering stop as she suddenly hit the brick wall known as Kimball. This man take no shit. This man he has balls.

Arthur doesn’t normally re print Updates postings here as it’s usually too dull and boring but I have insisted and he knows better than to refuse a woman on heat.

This is the latest posting that has got me very hot and florid:


KK
There are individuals who have turned what could have been a scientific investigation into a belief in a myth.

PK
Kathy: Absolutely. However, this broad, sweeping over-generalization ignores the fact that there are still plenty of good people who treat the UFO phenomenon not as a myth, but as a subject worthy of serious scientific, historical and journalistic study. I would suggest you ignore the former, focus on the latter, and, with respect, be a little more careful about confusing the two.

KK
Paul: Could you read the e-mail all the way through?

PK
I did.

KK
I stated "there are individuals," not "all people who are involved in Ufology." Apparently, you are ready to react instead of defend ufology. Not a good sign!

PK
Dodging responsibility for what you wrote is never a good sign either. Here is the full paragraph that you originally wrote:

"The point is that UFOs is the new mthology according to Bullard. I agree with him. There are individuals who have turned what could have been a scientific investigation into a belief in a myth."

To summarize:

1. UFOs are "the new mythology" according to Bullard.
2. You agree with him.
3. Individuals have turned what could have been a scientific investigation into a belief in a myth.

Now, to me at least, that reads as follows: "UFOs are the new mythology... it could have been a scientific investigation, but it isn't, because individuals (presumably ufologists, as you don't indicate that they are somehow exempted) have turned it into a belief in a myth."

To me the damning line, which deserved the rejoinder I provided, is: "what could have been a scientific investigation".

Said scientific investigation has, in fact, been going on from the get-go (although not to the extent that I would like to see). Your statement ignores that completely, and paints, as I said, a broad-brushed, over-generalized picture of "the new mythology".

I've been critical of the frauds, charlatans and, yes, the wide-eyed believers who can be found in ufology, but I've always been careful to differentiate them from the serious researchers. I didn't see that anywhere in what you wrote, and I still don't.

The end.

These are the previous postings in the thread.

    ...No truth in advertising here. I suspect you should review the cited thread. That said? I begin to wonder how blond _you_ are, ma'am.

    I trust this was short enough for your garden-variety sackless anon-om-oid.

    But Biddy, he has a terribly high, almost ethereal effeminate voice. I heard him when he was selling his bovine mutilation schlockumentary on George Snoory's CoastToCoastAM radio show. The femme voiced dilitante also commented on just about everything under the sun in Ufoology. He knows so much.

    Still, under his own name and taking responsibility, he shows some grace under fire, and put on a good show. Additionally, he seems to have showed some class when it wasn't the complete success it should have been, but everyone who was there, I'm hearing, is giving it good marks... so it seems with you that this has been another non-starter, eh?

    ...Moreover, he has a very practiced and competent speech not at all bad sounding... so you're a lying nymrod too...

    Ha! Two posts to me defending Mr. K! What's up Mr.L? Besides being so into a voice that could put the late Tiny Tim to shame.

    Oh and Mr. L, your picture is disconcerting -it's that overgrown beard.

    When you're not having PTSD flashbacks and writing about it, would you ask your Home Health Care Aide to shave it off? It makes you look as silly as The Amazing Randi.

    Yes, Anonymole, all you say is true but, he has a big cock.

    If you were a woman, you'd understand.

    Biddy.

    Biddy,

    I've put off asking you this because you are a lady of culture and taste, but what the hell. How do you know faggoty- sounding kimmykumkimball has a "big cock"?
