It's honestly debatable which option would be preferable.

Ooooh, to be dead at the hands of a gay serial killer clown, or living three decades in Florida.

I'd think that I would choose Florida, only because you can escape form it. You can't escape death.

You go Florida!!

What a tragic fate. Our prayers are with his family.

Gacy was an enthusiastic worker for the Waterloo Jaycees and he gave many countless hours to charity events. He was an accomplished pantomime and probably could've been a national celebrity with his clown act, had he taken it seriously. In prison, he was an accomplished artist whose paintings sold for many thousands of dollars. I think at his core, he was a kind man who was taken advantage of by those around him.

The poor bastard; I really feel for this family's loss and pray that they will recover from this misfortune.

Thirty years ago a cousin, who I was very close to, decided to see the country. He promised to call in weekly. The first week he called and said he meet some people and got a ride from Connecticut to the grand canyon. That was the last we ever heard from him.

No knowing is awful, I'm sure he is dead but I look for him in crowds and I always give hitch hikers a second look. Maybe he just decided to live away from his family and one day he'll come back.
 
2011-10-26 03:43:40 PM  
Poor guy. When is the memorial?

No escape. You have to stay there the full 30 years or it doesn't count.

I bet it was the way you abuse commas that drove him away.

Mr Gacy fancied himself a painter. His stuff is for sale, BTW, if you desire such a thing.

am the only one who thinks he is kindof a di*k for running out on his family and not even letting his brother know where he was?

Gacy was trolling for young men and boys in the area

It's a pretty much a dick move to leave your family with no notice like that and never say anything for decades. Then they find you and buy you a bus ticket and you're suddenly all family oriented? As soon as they learned that he decided to leave and didn't bother to ever speak to anyone they should have put him right back on a bus to Florida.
 
2011-10-26 03:53:18 PM  
Wait - this guy walked out to go find work over thirty years ago, ended up in Florida, and never contacted his family in all that time? If I was his brother I'd hug him first then give him a hard cockpunch.

This story interests me in several different ways.

Primarily, I can't imagine what it must be like to be left in the dark about something like this for 30 years. Particularly to the point of looking for him in crowds.

Furthermore, if he IS alive, what the hell would compel somebody to disappear for 30 years? Just how badly was he mistreated, or how many mental health issues must he be battling?

Lastly, and I know this makes me kind of farked up, I can't really imagine caring about my cousins that much. Out of 9 cousins, I have friendly enough relationships with two. Hell, I'm only Facebook friends with 3 of them. The rest, I really can't muster up any more concern or caring for them than I afford to every single person I pass on the street.

Brother is a twatwaffle for splitting like that. if you don't get along with you parents, fine, but your own sibs? More to this story than being reported.

On the other hand, he ran out on this.

I grew up in Plano, Tx. Death at the hands of JWG would have been a welcome release.

How would you make sure his cock was hard before you punched it?

Or would you be punching him with your own hard cock?

And why would your cock be hard when seeing your long lost brother, you sick bastard? From the hug?

We grew up together. we were next door neighbors. As for looking in crowds I'm not obsessed just glance around when I'm at the mall. He had some scares on his arm from an accidental burn so I figure that would be easy to spot.

His middle name is Wayne. Probably a killer himself.

I'm not particularly close to any of my cousins. I know their names, see them once every 3-4 years...but that's about it. We never really had much interaction.

But, both of my sister's have children and they are practically siblings. They play together several times a week and have sleep overs and stuff all the time. My sisters are both in the same area and so I guess that makes it easier.

My cousin was "killed" in a plane wreck over the Atlantic,but his body never found. Every day I look up at overhead planes and wonder,"is he flying that piece of shiat?" and while at the beach I wonder " did I just swallow warren?". Zombies.

I guess that makes it quite a bit different. I didn't mean to imply that I was judging you in any way. I think that your feelings are much more appropriate than my detachment. It's just hard for me to get my head round.

Fark_Guy_Rob: But, both of my sister's have children and they are practically siblings. They play together several times a week and have sleep overs and stuff all the time. My sisters are both in the same area and so I guess that makes it easier.


Oh, wow. I know nothing about 6 of my 9, and very little about 2 that I do keep in touch with.

I often feel guilty that I haven't given my brother's sons cousins. Their mother is an only child, and I am my brother's only sibling.

He must have been one hell of a rough 19 year old if they were able to recognize him from a 53 year old's mugshot.

Dear Diary:
Hell has a lot of dumb laws. Like No spitting. Who is that going to hurt? It evaporates before it hits the ground. But if they catch you spitting, well, it's it's the D block for you.

But one rule that Hell has is a cool one. If you are convicted of killing someone and it turns out you didn't, then you get what they call "a moment of justice". Recently, this guy showed up here, got a really good lawyer (they're everywhere) and convinced Satan that he didn't do the deed. Satan signed off on it and he got free ride back to Earth to get some nice, warm revenge. I heard he stole a bunch of socks from the dryer of the guy who put the needle in him. Sweet.

Anyhoo, I know how many kids I killed. At least I thought I did. All that's kinda off blurry to me now. I remember the cops telling me to sign a lot of stuff. Somewhere along the way, I guess I took credit for a guy who wasn't dead.

We were watching Fox on the big screen when who do you think pops on? Yep. A guy who is supposed to be dead at my hands but is living in Florida. Well, you could have knocked me over with Ronald Reagan's riding crop. We play Keep Away with it and RR swears when Mommy gets here we'll all pay. That's for another day. I see this guy and I stand up and yell "I demand a a moment of justice!"

Well ol' Satan gets off his Lay-z-boy and he wants me banned to D block immediately. No one interrupts Fox News especially when that Cavuto is on. Satan has a lot invested in that guy and when he goes, the boss says it will be spectacular. Think guns in the newsroom on live tv big. But I quickly explain what happened and suddenly the boss is on my side. "Look John Wayne," he says scowling at the other John Wayne as if to say "I aint talking to you", "Looks like you got a bad deal but lets fix things up, shall we."

Well I can't go after the guy because he's been living in Florida and that's just like living in Hell except the Mouse pays all your taxes. Can't do anything to Illinois; they're broke ass broke and the same's true for Chicago. Pretty much everyone else is dead so I can't torment them unless I go in to the bad parts of Hell. And believe me, you don't want to do that.

So I told Satan I'd settle for a Chicago dog and a cold Strohs beer. S laughs and says here you go, clown boy. Poof! A Chicago dog with relish, sport peppers and a poppy seed bun with a nice cold beer on the side. Of course the hot dog was grilled and it was Stroh's Signature but it was still pretty good. Besides, it was St. Louis Pizza Night in the dining facility and I got to skip that.

There are reasons to abandon your family. For example, if your parents have narcissistic personality disorder, the usual solution recommended by therapists is that you have low contact with your parents -- or cut them out of your life completely.

It's sad that so many shiatty, mentally-ill people decide to have children out of their own selfishness and not because they're ready or capable of caring for their child's physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
