    I remeber when Mike Knapps face appeared on Neo's flying body. I fell out of my chair.

    I like this thread. Unfortunately, I haven't been here that long. If everyone will be so kind as to give descriptions of some of these threads. Who's Jeremy Lancaster and Larry Grace?

    I don't know about Lancaster and Grace, either. But, something funny that jumps to mind is Ron's face imposed on to a bunch of different pictures, e.g. on Obi-Wan Kenobi on the cover of "The Phantom Menace." [​IMG]

    A great one that happened recently was when the new Total Recall tin images first appeared. Here are a few choice posts:

    The one that literally knocked me off my chair with laughter was Mitty's response to a rather vague posting about Morgan Freeman being underrated. Alas, it was so long ago, I can't find it anymore.
    Mitty replied by pointing out that Mr. Freeman has been Oscar nominated and was called the greatest American actor working in film by one prominent critic...and then posed the question as to how many accolades an actor must receive before he is no longer considered "underrated."
    Now that I've typed that, I realize it really was one of those things you had to be there for.
    Hey, Mitty....do you still have a copy of that somewhere?

    My favorite was a thread called Joe Sixpack is suck.
    Despite the twisted title, it turned out to be a great thread.

    My favorite was the 'debate' about the merits of separate PB&J components vs. all-in-one packages.

    Larry Grace was a troll, plain and simple. He was always posting messages in favor of pan&scan and open matte. He always claimed to prefer OAR/widescreen personally, but advocated the full-screen option for those who preferred it. This, of course, isn't bad in and of itself, lots of current HTF members feel the same way. But he was always going out of his way to post topics stating his preference with the sole purpose of stirring up crap. A favorite pasttime of his was starting threads just to tell the HTF membership about how he sets his player to 16:9 (on a 4:3 television set), stretching the picture vertically, so all his friends could watch a bigger picture that fills the screen.
    As for Jeremy Lancaster, I don't even know how to explain it. He was a nice enough guy, I'm quite sure he never intentionally tried to bother anyone, but he just didn't fit in here. Perhaps someone else can explain it better…

    The two that come to mind were the "toilet paper thread" and the "Joe Caps is leaving thread." Those two were funny, but for two different reasons.
    J. Lancaster seems familiar. My mind is fading...

    I forget who started the thread, but they had a hillarious analogy comparing the receiver vs. separates debate with peanut butter and jelley sandwiches. what flavor jelley, cruncy/smooth, white/wheat, plate/no plate, it all worked itself into thread somewhere. I wish I could still find it, but I can't.

    Lancaster was a nasty piece of work. What you saw on the public forum was not the whole picture.
