    What in the Heck is a "Merton"?

    I know I am going to regret posting this but I had to ask!

    Isn't "merton" a term for fake hair for a woman's . . . .

    Cross an angry rattlesnake with a sloth, then cross the result with a seagull (think "Finding Nemo") and the resulting offspring is a Merton.

    Yes you did Siu. Would you be so kind as to tell me exactly what a Merton is. I have a mental picture but that falls far short.

    Merton is this guy who would come off with these crazy off the wall threads. He always felt the LBS was out to rip him off, his room mates were out to rip him off and school was out to rip him off.

    So he would think of these crazy things and ask for help. Like how to sound proof your room with sand (in the walls). Or he would post his drawings of toilets and ask us to buy them so he can pay for school. Or he would make some wild crazy art project and ask us what we think (I swear he was trying to communicate to other non earthly beings with that thing) and then the best of all, he would be so upset about paying the LBS and somehow they always messed up him with bad parts, wrong parts or gave him attitude.

    And for some reason, he never used capitals.

    His favorite word to use was "crap" and he always accused me of harrassing him when I teased him too much on his threads even though he talked to me via PM a lot and we would have pleasant conversations.

    I miss my merton.

    Yep. I miss Merton.

    He was an entertaining guy, though. Yeah, I miss him.

    Merton is a Foo cultural meme. I'm begining to doubt he ever even existed and that any instances I remember of interacting with him were imagined in order to preserve the reality my mind has generated around him.

    Hmmmm! The lack of capitlaization and the oddball postings of inventions lead me to believe I know who this troll is. I just did not know he was into the Bicycle boards. In the world of firearms boards he was known as "Gunkid". His claim to fame was a lack of capitalization and the invention of the "mobile armored wheelbarrow".

    Apparently the Internet as well as the world seems to be a mighty small place. I am pretty sure it is him from what you have told me. He is fairly infamous and quite prolific.
