The fella is still at it. Manc33 in full flow. Same old same old, and getting the same reactions.

Came across while browsing in another place.

If you are nostalgic for the days you could wander into the strange world(s) of the Mancman, here you go. No need to thank me.

    Just goes to show you can't rationalise the irrational.

  • I'm amazed that anyone has the time to argue against someone who asserts that rockets can't move themselves in space. And that gravity isn't real.
  • I thought he was good value on here as he was bonkers in an amusing kind of way.

    I forget why he got hit with the ban stick. He was / is a wind up merchant, but agree he brought in entertainment value.

    It was constant diversion of threads in other sections IIRC.

    It's ok to talk nonsense in here but when every thread in Road General becomes a discussion on Powerlink conspiracy you re not helping yourself...

    He was a prat.

    Not amusing, just a prat.

    Those didn't help but it was the conspiracy theory thread that was his undoing.

    His sheer persistence at pushing the same bollox over and over again tested the patience of one of the more authoritarian mods at the time. He got a temporary ban and a final warning that if he did 'one more post like that' then he was going to get a permanent whack with the ban hammer.

    Guess what, he came back after his temporary ban and made several more posts like that :)

    Over on cyclinguk, he seems to be implying that we're being lied to about gravity and satellites.

    He's bonkers.

    That flat earth site has some very interesting articles. It's only a handful of ignoramus who actually go there believing in it.

    Don't know how I followed this click-bate, but thought this Independent page was hilarious.

    I got as far as #22/29:
    22. The Philadelphia Experiment - Popularised by the Charles Berlitz novel of the same name, conspiracy theorists believe that during an experiment at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in October 1943, the US Navy destroyer Eldridge was rendered invisible. According to some accounts, the scientists on the experiment found a way to bend light around an object but that the experiment went wrong and Eldridge was transported through space and time, reappearing at sea. Several sailors, it is said, were badly hurt when the experiment went wrong and some were melded into the ship's superstructure. The US Navy has denied that the experiment ever took place.

    I particularly like that

  • What was much more amusing than his posts was the way so many apparently sane and rational posters got sucked in, thinking they could win the argument through logic...
  • Whilst I don''t understand his motives you have to admire his skill and patience.

    When you have totally convinced yourself that what you believe is true, then you can proceed with a blind conviction. You can source material from the brothers of scepticism in reams.

    One day (and there is a small part of me that hopes it will never happen simply because it may be cataclysmic) he'll be sitting under a metaphorical apple tree and an apple will fall on his head. Then, he'll suddenly see the light.

    And the below.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    He does not believe that rubbish, he continuously morphs his argument so they can not pin him down then goes off on unrelated tangents. His ability to sustain the thread is very clever.

    He has otherwise sane people debating what the edge of the world looks like and the heat resistant properties of giant stickers on the side of space rockets.

    Sorry. Our society considers belief in a mythical being in the sky to be worthy of special treatment.

    Compared to that, nothing's that daft

    It's just a hill. Get over it.
