Lower Merced Pass Lake is a tongue twisting moniker that would probably have Licky's fingers tied in knots by now, if he was really typing. His posts are so short, cryptic and disjointed that I believe he is typographically challenged, but they have meds for that, if he seeks help. I think Obamacare covers it but don't know for sure. That's why serious authors farm out the hard part, the writing itself to those of us who can handle the chore. I offered to help him edit for free, years ago, just to get the thing moving. He thought I was trying to rip off his valuable research, thought I was Chainsaw, thought I was Meme, whatever. Meme had it right the other day:

Licky just took the paranoia route.

Licky poses and insults, while his posts reveal that he is not a natural nor a trained writer. There is nothing wrong with that, as long as he keeps his day job, which he has never revealed despite his alleged openness in this forum. I told him that without the permission of the other co-conspirators that I was not at liberty to divulge details that I know, but offered to share general observations gleaned from first-hand experiences as I lived through the whole thing in Curry Village. For that I received his wrath and condemnation. I tried to find the other fellas, but to no avail. It has never been my intention to write about the plane, despite Licky's delusions. Writing is serious business for me, but not for him. I get paid for this shyt - not much, but paid. I edit for $15 p/hr, write new articles for 10 cents per word, with bonuses, and ghostwrite/tutor for $20 p/hr. Those are low rates, but I get to do what I like. When amateurs like Licky call themselves writers, they are lying until they publish, period. Think about your profession. Do you like seeing others fake it while you don't? If you're a carpenter for example, and get paid $20-30 p/hr or more, how do you like it when an undocumented alien or jerk with no tools snags jobs that you bid on by working for $10? Licky has no respect for the profession of writing, as I've said before, and therefore gets no respect from me. And he wonders why I think he might be a narc. Narcs are jerks and he fits the profile.

Why is it in politics, religion {ministers] Catholics ………………….. maybe someone in the family that are the ones that yell the loudest and never gives up on the their convictions about how bad Gays, abortion, prostitutes ………………. And all are going to Hell; are the ones that get caught doing the same things they preach against about.

How many times Sidnarc have you used the name narc and snitch. There were quite few suits in the Valley [you can always tell who is who by what kind of shoes they were $,$$ or$$$$$. I have the feeling I know which ones you had to make deal so you would not go to jail.

Sounds to me reading between the lines that is what you were at the time. MCA, FBI, DEA? Recall you wanted to look while Licky was asleep to make copies on your 16mm camera.

As for Licky taking his time: and you say you have a problem running down your FED friends.

Funning [well not really when you think back was a few posts back about references to some 202 #, I just learned now has me wondering so again more mystery to the book. Worth the wait for the correct information.

You and MeMe are only interested in a couple of pages. That’ providing that both of you can read? Which ones would they be I ask? Not publishing but your interest in the story?

I say you or you’re made up friend start a comedy act:

You should know this guy if you don’t I can provide it for you but he thought he could try it out, make a couple of bucks doing it. They did pay him [ I guess], he was the start for the real comedian that followed. His jokes just really never made it, he did make someone laugh, when I looked over to see who it was, some woman he was with. The crowd like myself was only interested in OJ, He really did not know how to respond. Guess what he was there when it all happened. Sure why not the biggest murder case in CA why not cash in and knows nothing. Oh he believes now that maybe OJ did murder a couple of people.

As for Licky knowing about you:

Well, sid, I'm disappointed. When I used to work I got paid a hell of a lot more than that. Now I'm doing it for the betterment of humanity and a few wooden nickels (though mfm is the only one who actually sends them to me).

Would you care for some html or recursive functional programming to go with your plane crash?

Debbie paid me handsomely for coaching her through the anthropological and linguistic training involved in bringing this to fruititon.




Seriously now. When i used to fly in a small plane with my friend Lew, he would say "N" "PAPA" "LIMA" - Why isn't there a word for "N"?

Lew was an upstanding citizen, served and learned to fly in the military, never smuggled drugs, practiced aviation law, but he lost an engine coming into Van Nuys airport and crashed into a home killing himself, but no one in the house. He left a wife and two kids behind. Why someone isn't writing a book about him is a mystery to me.

Shang, are you like, dyslectic or something? If you're last posts make sense to anyone they need to raise their hand. Swaggart, Bakker, Kailen, what the phuck do they have to do with anything? You have no substance dude

And Zbro, I'm soooo impressed that you made more than me, is your dick bigger too? I thought you guys all retired after the plane, I mean, who's needed to work since '77? Not any C4Bs, right? I mean, if a dweeb from curry can get rich why didn't you geniuses? Debbie Reynolds? huh?
oh and thanx for bettering humanity so - I've noticed how much nicer everyone has been lately, all thanx to you - maybe you could go write bills for congress, since you're such a humani-phuckin-tarian you could bridge the gap between the parties in Washington - i'm so phuckin impressed by you I could fart

Say there say, sid, I'm proud of you working for a living, but shouldn't you be applying yourself to the task at hand rather than trying to bait your superiors on the internet?

Are you an immigrant? Papers please. I would guess that I was paid a lot more than you because folks saw more a lot more value in what I did, than what value they see if what you do. I'm not sure.

Don't mock Debbie. She was paid more than any of us and she could sing and had a congenial disposition. You can't and don't.

Who are these friends who are scatterd like dry leaves? The radio said they were just deportees.

Like looking into the mirror all you are doing is writing about yourself, looking, searching: problem you have Sid: nothing there. Your mentally handicapped postings has nothing to do with Licky, you just want it to be about you. Even fools can get educated just takes time. Turn away from the mirror.

You will keep responding because that is all you have. Stupidity and fools try so hard to convince others they are not. That what makes them fools.

Another Shadow years ago Sickly.

When word first came out about the plane [even though did not need it since there was so much of others: Thai sticks, hash, oils ....... figured sure why not get try or add more tastes to the pallet. Much like wine.

Mountain Room Bar, [ bet you could not recall anyone who worked there] driving getting out of the park since a few of us lived just outside. After polishing off close to a bottle of a good bottle of Canadian whiskey a day helped to make which lane to be in.

Anyway so another fine "The Shadow Knows" asks me if I wanted some.
Well no problem there, told him no hurry.

Of course just said just needed a small bag. you know something that everyone knows looks like this:

Could have been the same day or next day when he brings this ??? gallon garbage bag; about 1/3 full.

Credit: lostinshanghai

What the F%ch, I said how much do I owe you: cost was about the price you would pay to get in a taxi in your neck of the woods, S,F. for one block.
So I doubled it if I recall.

Just some fun memories. Some of the good stories not like yours of sorrow.

You would have to know about a few things in that other picture to understand, fools goes right pass them.

Plus taking a guess since you cleaned the toilets for Curry buses the bag above was probably filed with what turned you on.

LICKY, LICKY, LICKY
this IS about Licky, moron. without his failed quest the thread ain't there, and you and I don't enter the fray. everytime you attack me it veers away, but that's not my fault

So Shang, you actually smoked plane weed? I mean, more than the occasional toke or two? One small hit was enough to remind the smoker that it was tainted with petrochemicals, anyone who kept hitting the flaming joints probably has issues like yours - brainrot.
No, I didn’t drink at the MR, preferred the atmospheres of the Ahwahnee and Curry bars, more upscale and refined. Ok, and a shorter walk home and free beers appealed to me as well, but I never scrounged food off trays with an excuse that it was the price to pay to climb every day. The buscleaning job began at 5pm, enabling me to climb every day with dignity. If it turns you on to pretend that I enjoyed smelling human feces then believe that fabrication, but you saying it don't make it true.
You make the thread about me when you criticize me - I keep the focus on Licky while you prefer the distraction of attacking me. Licky gets the subject changed and you look like a cheerleader. Congratulations, moron.
I have no doubt that you are probably a good climber, better than I ever was, but being a reckless thrillseeker doesn't indicate intelligence.
Meanwhile, the ten-year mark on these threads approaches in May. Licky won't beat the clock.

Well apparently nobody else is going to say it, so

lidmo

Now that is good. Funny thing, I found a part of a lid on the sidewalk the other day. They come in plastic pill containers these days. It did not smell like avgas, however. I thought I was onto a real find.

At least I can tell by your timing that you lost out: Not all of the bales were soaked. So that tells me you never got past the first page. The stash that I received had none of the fuel. At other times in the valley I, through others smoked it and sure as soon as you lit it would could use as a fire starter.

Anyway had some slides I was going through the other day and someone picked you out. At the garage, Can’t think of the cool black guy’s name [think he was the manager or head of something that gave orders] with a couple of others that I knew and some said that was you or at the time was/were in the background.

Amazing how the years go by and how we look now. I think you brought it up about you would not recognize anyone today
.
Sure looks you have changed a lot.

By the way I was referring to smoking not smelling your secret stash.

Holy shit!! I saw this thread pop to the front page and I thought another plane went down.

Does anyone have good numbers on the actual THC content of the avgas grass?

Did that guy who murdered his family smoke any of the plane crash weed?

(Ric get on it. I bet you hadn't even thought to ask these questions. Like I've said before, an author's work is never done). The readers? Likewise.

I hate to keep harping on this shit!, but apparently those pilots never heard of Rejex. They might have been with us today.

REJEX WAS NAMED FOR ITS ABILITY TO "REJECT" UV, BUG SPLATS, BIRD POOP, JET EXHAUST AND OTHER COMMON CONTAMINANTS. READ THE CHILLING ACCOUNT OF HOW ONE PILOT CREDITS REJEX FOR REPELLING SOMETHING FAR MORE SERIOUS: ICE!
