Horace is probably the worst person to post on any forum, ever. He may be the worst person I have ever come across, virtually or online. He is certainly the meanest. Even Tomasso can't hold a candle to him.

Hell of a role model.

Wait...you weren't comparing me to Quintus Horatius Flaccus?

Is this a dig?

You're not going to RJman me, are you?

It could be awkward since I am Chairman of your 25K Post Party Committee.

I mean, Charo might be there. She might come out of the cake.

The boastfulness vacilates between amusing and tiresome. When you become nasty, all the amusement drains away and the ugly side of the boastfulness, which is never entirely absent, crowds out the redeeming aspects of your personality. Someone who is genuinely as superior to the rest of us as he thinks he is would not act this way. Read Aristotle on magnanimity.

Is that clear enough? It is in any case the best I can do.

Check out the Jazz Standard (w/ the exception of the more run down vanguard, it is a favorite), and Pearl's Oyster Bar for great seafood in the village. I may be in the minority, but thank god CdA closed. The food was beyond sub par.

What? Nasty?

Please don't be nuts.

And no one is superior. Read Hobbes.

I have, and am reading him again just now, as it happens. He is not only wrong, his thought is not relevant to the issue at hand.

I'm done. He understands me. I am not interested in the coming snark, though I will read it and may laugh at some of it.

You're a dork, but in a winning way.

I would insult you, but you are not yet important.
