What's the point of selling the location of his secret fishing spots? I think most people can figure out where her vagina is.

If he's left the country, he won't really need those locations anymore. What a stupid "revenge".
 
2013-01-03 05:07:28 PM  
Yawn, call me when the guy actually skips the Earth.

she obviously wasn't much of a catch.

Depends on where he left to - there are other countries close by (assuming the mean professional ocean fishing).

What a biatch

Why Would I Read the Article: What a biatch


Came here to say this. Damn my slow fingers.

If he was smart it's really the location of ship hazards.
 
2013-01-03 05:12:13 PM  
so... i guess this begs the question:

is the etymology of "troll" from the mythic monster or the fishing technique?

That's what I thought, too. Then I actually read the article.

Both. First the latter by way of tactic, then the former by way of insult.

This sort of urban legend pops up now an again. This is like the mint condition sports car sold after the divorce, or something like that.
 
2013-01-03 05:17:34 PM  
If I'm not mistaken all he has to do is kill who ever shows up at his spots.
 
2013-01-03 05:17:35 PM  
Fishing doesn't necessarily mean catching.

/Great fisherman . . .lousy catcherman.

Cunning. I admire this.

Maybe her whisker biscuit smells like fish and he had to leave?

Perhaps he caught something from her after the biatch hooked up with another guy.

No it doesn't.

Why would you tell your wife your fishing spots? Isn't that the whole point of going fishing?

TFA: Angela Potter found his GPS markings in her garage after the split and auctioned them off on a site called Trade Me for about $2,500.

which makes me ask, what kind of GPS marks their 'territories'?

I think most of the GPS allow you to mark areas on them. I've done a couple charter trips and they always have a couple spots on their GPS they like to fish at.

I'm more wondering who the fark would pay $2500 for some fishing spot coordinates.

I was meaning like a dog marks it's territory. never mind.

Depends on the fish to be found. Have you any idea what sushi-grade *anything* sells for in Japan?
 
2013-01-03 06:17:18 PM  
or what American tourists will pay for 'exclusive' fishing excursions. Sounds like a bargain to me.
 
2013-01-03 06:42:35 PM  
What a ho. Dude did the right thing to skip the country to flee her ass. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to escape from madness.

Fanatical fishing guys are interesting.

You know what... he left it behind.  Maybe not cool of her, but if I had 'trade secrets' of any kind I would generally try to get them to a safe location before I broke up with the ex.  Just saying... wouldn't it be considered abandoned property, like stuff a renter leaves behind after a lease?

/she did offer a trade for a suitcase, too
//shrug
///Woman who fishes, so that cancels out and I'm impartial, right?
////never have sold off anything from an ex, but the roommate who just ditched gets three weeks before Salvation or Purple Heart gets everything but his 20 and 40 year old Scotch.  That goes to me.
//New roommate thought I was being generous with the three weeks, since she kinda wants somewhere to put *her* stuff

If a man feels the need for revenge after being dumped - it's called being a stalker, and that is what restraining orders are for.

Look carefully, it doesn't actually say "fisting spots". You misread.

As someone who recently went through the ugly process of having the live-in S.O. move out, they don't think the same way about "generosity" as your new roommate might.

As far as I'm concerned, I went above and beyond, but, as far as she's concerned, if Stalin and Hitler were somehow able to conceive a baby who, in turn, got knocked up by Pol Pot, I would be that kid's evil twin.

You just look ignorant.

$2,500 for some coordinates (presumably) written down on a piece of paper? Sounds like a great revenge to me!

Poor guy had to tell her he skipped the country to get away from her. she sounds about as crazy as my ex. Took only what couldn't be replaced when I left, assuming the rest, oh yes was thrown out, destroyed, given away, sold when I finally got my house back......And she did. saw a bunch of it on craigslist......

But that's okay. I needed some new shiz anyhow. It worked out kinda nice.

don't put the ding a ling in the crazy.....

"Insane" is the way I'd put it. Whatever makes you happy is great and all, but I can't empathize with the level of devotion some people have with it.

Which reminds me of morel mushroom season in Indiana. Apparently these things are in season only a few of weeks of the year. When I was in Indiana guys were scary about gathering these things. They'd each have "their spot[s]" and devote all of their free time to hunting for them. They'd take 3 or 4 large garbage bags and not stop until they were full. Often times they were armed, too. Not for defense from wild critters, but to defend their claim. Hearing guys tell stories about pulling a gun on people in order to run them out of "their spot", and reveling in the pride of doing so, was sickening. I'm so glad that I got out of that hellhole.

If by "insane" you mean "sitting on the beach at 1am in the middle of December with it's 20 degrees out waiting for a fish to bite, five nights a week", I'm guilty as charged.  And I couldn't explain it if I tried to.

/striper season endeed December 15th, have to wait until April for the fishing to pick up again
