jtur88, you are a fucking ass!!

Seriously dude, must you go in everyone's thread for the sole purpose of laying a giant stinking turd?


Your latest turd here. where you are basically complaining about a dude who called the police to stop a child from being raped.


You have many other turds you have dropped through out this board. But I'm just coming off a 12 hour shift and am too tired to search for them and leave links.

Perhaps others will chime in.

In any case, you are a fucking ass!!

Here's one, in which he somehow tried to defend the people running a call center in India that defrauded Americans by pretending to be from the IRS and threatening them with arrest and prosecution.

Sham-wow alone might extort more than $36 million from US residents. American banks extort more than that from Americans iwith exorbitant fees, which go unchallenged and are blown off with a shrug. Walmort makes more tha $36 millilon just by rounding prices up to the next 88 cents.

American airlines all charge $200, just to change the date on your plane ticket -- $400 if it's international. Now who's ripping us off? (British Airways charges nothing for that, and Emirates, Air France and Turkish only a small fraction of it.)

Some folks have something like a pathological need to be contrary. He's one of 'em.

And, in that same thread, posted hearsay about India not allowing McDonald's then got all pissy when corrected.

In my travels, I've found some backwater indigenous peoples enjoy stinky turds. If only everyone else were as smart as I am.

Besides, it's all marketing.

BTW, I have a girlfriend!

Should I weigh in now or wait until I see which way the crowd goes?

Jesus is real! I have ontological proofs!



Too many?

This pitting is overdue and deserved bigly. The guy thinks he's "telling it like it is" when he wanders into every thread to take a big shit. Thank goodness for the ignore function.

When one sense is lost, the others become more acute. Like smell.

I one-thousand percent support this pit. He's a bitter misogynist, which explains why he thinks there was no crime with regard to that thread. What a useless bag of water.

My favorite thing about jturd is his complete belief that all medical care, of any kind, is bad and a complete waste of time. Appendicitis? Let it burst. Pneumonia? Cough up a lung. All doctors are charlatans and it's a waste of time and money to see one.

I can't tell if he's a retiree or a troll faking the whole thing.

He also advised getting a fake service dog certificate if you want to travel with your pet, but don't want to put them in cargo.

It's not necessarily precisely the same, but it brings to mind the diagnosis (for children) of Oppositional Defiant Disorder:

Symptoms of ODD may include:
  • Throwing repeated temper tantrums
  • Excessively arguing with adults, especially those with authority
  • Actively refusing to comply with requests and rules
  • Deliberately trying to annoy or upset others, or being easily annoyed by others
  • Blaming others for your mistakes
  • Having frequent outbursts of anger and resentment
  • Being spiteful and seeking revenge
  • Swearing or using obscene language
  • Saying mean and hateful things when upset
In addition, many children with ODD are moody, easily frustrated, and have a low self-esteem. They also sometimes may abuse drugs and alcohol.
Perhaps some children with ODD who grow up to be somewhat functional spend their spare time offering up turds on message boards.

Yes, this. Or maybe just "old coot"? IIRC he's an older gentleman. I've always just read his posts as someone who really really wants the world to get off his lawn. His very exotic lawn that he cultivated from seeds he obtained from some arcane rain forest whilst he subsisted on lemur feces. And he liked it, damn it!

Lemur feces are perfectly safe to eat -- you don't know what you're talking about.

I once found some lemur feces someone had discarded in a dumpster. I just washed off the coffee grounds, cigarette ashes and dumpster slime and it was a perfectly fine meal.

Your post prompted me to do a Google search on jtur88. On another board, his "About me" page says

Now, this might be another jtur88, but it does sound familiar.

You may be thinking of Topper, who always has to up the ante on whatever anyone else says.

No matter what exotic locale someone mentions, it turns out jtur88 has lived there for several years or at least visited it multiple times. If he's really been every place he says he has, he must be 988 years old.

This. Lemurs eat cinnamon and gourds so it's kind of like pumpkin pie.

Sometimes seems like that; but from my own experience I spent about 12 years overseas and six of those were nothing but travel, as often as 2-3 times a month. It's not difficult to cover a lot of ground doing that.

Here he claims to have been in every county or parish in 48 states, most of them at least twice. There are more than 3,000 counties and county equivalents in the US. I don't know how many miles you would have to travel to accomplish that. More important, I can't comprehend for what reason you would do it. What kind of job would require that? Or why would you want to visit every county in North Dakota as a tourist? (Maybe if you were obsessive you would want to visit every county to check them off your list, but why would you visit them twice?).

Despite expressions of incredulity from several posters and requests to explain, he simply ignored them and proceeded to tell tales about his international travels.

It bugs me when he says things that appear contradictory, and then doesnt bother to explain, even when asked

Like:

"Being near home [for Thanksgiving] is pretty non-traditional for me"

and

"It will be the first time in a decade I've been away from home on Thanksgiving. "

Much like when he claims in one thread that he drives, or in another that he doesn't drive. His only consistancy is that he's stupid, and has at times offered dangerous/unethical advice. (Don't go to the doctor, it's okay to eat spoiled food, get a phony license for a service animal, etc)

I'd think just the opposite, actually. Wouldn't a diet of dumpster delicacies, roadkill, truck windfalls and banana peel smoothies tend to clean one out quite effectively?

Strange - considering I've seen jtur88 eel into, and then eviscerate on, many of the threads I read - that I haven't seen him here to at least try to stand up for himself.
So does the SDMB make pit threads invisible to pitees, then?

(yeah yeah yeah - a still-somewhat-noob post)

With deliveries to almost every county in the US? 36 counties have populations of less than 1,000. They don't even have towns of any size. What exactly was he delivering there?

Here's a map of US counties. Try plotting a route that will take you to almost all of them. It would be tens of thousands of miles.

Visiting all the counties in the US would be extremely time consuming, very expensive, and completely pointless. And he claims to have visited most of them twice.

In this thread he was called on a mistake he made in a Thread Game, and refused to admit it even when confronted with overwhelming evidence he was wrong.
