burn him
2004-02-12 12:37:00 PM  
Ah yes, a long-distance, snowy VHS recording of the sniper. He's as good as caught.
2004-02-12 12:37:11 PM  
And it's John Kerry! Amazing!
2004-02-12 12:37:30 PM  
FuR1Ous: too quick. I say bury him naked in concrete to the knees, coat him with beef stock and then release the 1,000 rabid chihuahuas. Slow, painful, and humiliating. =)
2004-02-12 12:37:47 PM  
Sounds pretty useless to me. Unless they have some of those unnaturally nifty CSI enhancement doodads.
2004-02-12 12:38:45 PM  
Atleast they don't quote themselves as a source twice like they did about the Vivid Video gals on snowboards.
2004-02-12 12:40:25 PM  
I can't wait until this is on real-tv!

(only half joking)
2004-02-12 12:40:32 PM  
ROTFL. Bravo. Nice post.
You get a gold star... or a pizza. :p
2004-02-12 12:40:52 PM  
Lester Beers... coolest name ever.
2004-02-12 12:41:09 PM  
LeBron would kick this guy's ass.
2004-02-12 12:41:41 PM  
Is this only on VHS, or is there a DVD version?
2004-02-12 12:42:11 PM  
Hey, remember the DC sniper? They "caught" that guy in two weeks. This Ohio sniper has been around since last August? What's up with that?!
2004-02-12 12:44:35 PM  
The DC guy(s) were idiots... they CALLED the farkin' cops and tipped them off as to who they were!
2004-02-12 12:44:42 PM  
People in Ohio are deaf, dumb and blind, obviously.
2004-02-12 12:45:36 PM  
I thought they were still trying not to use the word sniper.

And the DVD will be out in 2008 directed by Lucas, wide screen, and he's editing the orignal to make it look like the victim shot first. Also 8 alternate endings.
2004-02-12 12:46:13 PM  
the ohio snipper just shoots cars (for the most part), he is not actually trying to kill people, although he has. so the rule of thumb is don't ride in a car with tinted windows, and only drive with your baby seat strapped to the roof of your car.

...and why did this make the main page anyway?
2004-02-12 12:46:59 PM  
I say 'Photoshop contest'
2004-02-12 12:47:21 PM  
That video narrows down the possible suspects to only 11,373,541!
2004-02-12 12:48:54 PM  
$20 says it was Boba Fett. $50 says it was Greedo. Either way, Han shot first.

2004-02-12 12:49:26 PM  
Isn't is punishment enough that he lives in Ohio?
2004-02-12 12:49:57 PM  
I wish people would stop calling this guy a sniper. He's only had 1 killshot out of 22 attempts. That's not sniping, that's n00b c4mp1ng.
2004-02-12 12:50:02 PM Beers. He should change his name to Morey Beers.

"Is this only on VHS, or is there a DVD version?"

There's aDVD version, but because George Lucas got ahold of the film, Greedo shoots the cars on the highway first before the real sniper does.

Nice rip of my posts skinink
2004-02-12 12:53:22 PM  
Takes pictures of his driveway? What the fark is that all about?
2004-02-12 12:53:25 PM  
It would be nice to catch him, and let the victims try to pick him off at 500 yards.
2004-02-12 12:56:50 PM  
hrmm. wonder if the picture quality is better than some of this VHS to VCD pr0n i've leeched.
2004-02-12 12:57:29 PM  
sounds like the video equipment is old and crappy....probably just trying to scare the crap out of the sniper
2004-02-12 12:57:33 PM  
"Nice rip of my posts skinink"

Got distracted between Kerry thread and this one, didn't refresh in time. Can't we all just get along, and agree the ORIGINAL versions of the Star Wars movies should be released, instead of the Director's cuts ?

2004-02-12 01:01:52 PM  
Get NASA analysts on that videotape! :) "Clearly you can see the moon man face here (points to blurry grey blob 1/2 on video screen). We are instituting a 30 billion dollar program to send a remote rover [created by technicians at our new subcontractor, Fisher Price Space Microtechnologies] to the Ohio freeway to find this sniper"
2004-02-12 01:03:40 PM  
I hope they catch him soon. I have to drive up that way in two weeks.
2004-02-12 01:03:43 PM  
Don't interrupt us while we are having fun with the Kerry story!
2004-02-12 01:06:44 PM  
Of couse i forgive you, fark is all about friends baby! (unless you're french)
2004-02-12 01:09:00 PM  
Too bad he wasn't using the invisible cheat.
2004-02-12 01:09:22 PM  
He's using a hand gun instead of a rifle so he's not really a sniper per se so his moniker has been the "Highway Shooter" in these parts. I think "Megatron" or "Butch" would have been better.
2004-02-12 01:12:07 PM  
I went on a snipe hunt but I didn't find anything.
2004-02-12 01:12:38 PM  
Do you think they send snipers after the sniper? Everybody was sniper fighting! huh! Those snipes were fast as lightning! Ha!
2004-02-12 01:13:15 PM  
You bring your whoop-ass stick? :p

Find anything yet? We aint found shiat!
2004-02-12 01:16:16 PM  
Why dont they just comb the area?

2004-02-12 01:17:56 PM  
They need to go after him with one of these [image from too old to be available]

and a Mog.. you know, half-man, half-dog.

Re: Get a life

Lucasfilm has specifically said that they're not running a democracy and I agree with them. They can release any version of the films with any amount of commentaries they want. Be happy that you're getting something instead of nothing at all. My life and childhood memories won't be drastically altered because there's a handful of extra scenes and revamped effects thrown in. Skip the scenes using your remote if you're that appalled by it. And don't try to convince yourself that you're just so incredibly disappointed that you'll utterly refuse to buy the box set anyway.

I'm much more excited to finally have a sharp, digital quality transfer for my progressive scan DVD player and HDTV, and a snazzy 5.1 dolby mix for my home theater setup.
2004-02-12 01:43:12 PM  
No DVD? What's VHS?
2004-02-12 01:45:30 PM  
He hits 1 out of 21 shots and they call him a "SNIPER"?
2004-02-12 01:45:49 PM  
this has to be the worst sniper in history, he should just give up.
2004-02-12 01:52:57 PM  
He was using a pistol? You can't snipe with a freaking pistol! What a moron. I bet when they finally catch him he's some 54-year-old white laid-off factory worker who lives with his mom.
2004-02-12 01:53:25 PM  
This so-called sniper will probably turn out to be some 45 year old single guy who lives with his mom and dismembers small animals.

The neighbors will all say "He's always been such a nice man but he does kinda keep to himself. I would never have suspected he was the sniper."
