-Just curious.

He hasn't posted anything, and possibly never will. Many people sign up for accounts but never say anything. I'd consider it an unethical abuse of my position on this site to publicly reveal even what little I know about him.

Very glad to see you gracing these boards again, Magdalena! :computerwave:

His name is always at the bottom. (New member). I like his name, Frrrrrancisco. Very Latino. Not many of us around here.  :-\
That'all.

He is a seller of shoes and printer ink/toner of dubious provenance.
I got a pair New Balonce joggers off him that are working for me.
We don't actually jog in them.
No, but the potential is there.

I'm not sure about his inks and toners.
Yes of course this kind of member wouldn't have been allowed back in the day but now is now, can't afford to be picky and his shoes are very competitively priced.



The world also needs more people like you, Bad Penny II.

I saw a cartoon once where a vampire was informed of this reflected sunlight fact and promptly disintegrated.  Moral: science saves lives.

And as long as we're on the subject, why would being soulless keep a vampire's image from reflecting in a mirror?  Mirrors don't reflect human souls, only the physical form which vampires also have so they should be showing up in mirrors just fine.  Ditto a photograph.

Special, soul-detecting photons are the answer here. Except, these soul-detecting photons also reflect off of inanimate objects... so we have undead-soul-detecting photons. Yeah, that makes sense.

Perhaps the Soul-detecting photons are only emitted from Sol, the soulless detecting photons are emitted from elements created from other stars.

I see the plot for a sci-fi vampire space opera brewing. I like it!

I wonder if you could get a packed parachute through airport security and onto the plane as carryon luggage.

That's an interesting idea. Might have to cause a scene to pull it off though. Then again, if you're flying in a 737 they might understand.

At Rome airport I once saw a Sicilian family board an internal flight carrying a cage of live chickens.

^ Therapy chickens no doubt.  ;D

Joking aside, I have a grand daughter who has some emotional issues.  When she was in high school she became a member of FFA (future farmers of America). She was involved with chickens, kept some of them in her parents back yard.  She was  in a much better emotional state all the while that she was nurturing those chickens.  The chickens were not presumed to be for therapy but sure enough they were. I reckon that her attention to the health and welfare of those birds was a fortunate distraction from her imagined demons.
