He does have a level 60 character in every Everquest profession though.

65 is the max cap for EQ chars, soon to be 70.

2004-06-18 01:08:18 PM  
Damn camper!
2004-06-18 01:08:23 PM  
Ask him where he put my horse!
2004-06-18 01:08:33 PM  
2004-06-18 01:08:56 PM  
he found the golden ticket...

If I could only do that...

Humm, they deliver food. They deliver groceries. I'm sure my liquor store would deliver beer.

Oh wait, I need to work because I'm not filthy rich.
2004-06-18 01:09:15 PM  
Let's hope he was off to get some air fresher and cleaning supplies!
2004-06-18 01:09:36 PM  
in a pine box?

2004-06-18 01:09:58 PM  
Is this "guy on the couch" from Half-Baked?
2004-06-18 01:11:10 PM  
Grandpa Simpson?
2004-06-18 01:12:45 PM  
He wanted to get the new CD from the Spin Doctors.
2004-06-18 01:14:14 PM  
He stopped loving her today.
2004-06-18 01:15:06 PM  
I'll bet he's a TotalFarker.
2004-06-18 01:15:19 PM  
It took him that long to delete all the spam from his e-mail inbox.

/Wonders how a 4 month old e-mail name already gets spam ...

2004-06-18 01:16:53 PM  
You mean we can leave our homes?
2004-06-18 01:17:25 PM  

Dammit! I wanted to post a Finding Forrester picture. ;)
2004-06-18 01:17:47 PM  
So, wait, he wasn't one of those 800 pound land whales? Bah.
2004-06-18 01:18:38 PM  
geez, couldnt somebody have carried him down the stairs? how hard it is to carry an old man down 8 flights of stairs?
2004-06-18 01:19:45 PM  
In eight years he could have just taken 2 or 3 steps a day and made it down and back several times... lazy bastard.

skinink: Shouldn't have signed up with adultfriendfinder, it's a spamtrap. Oh, and get Mozilla Thunderbird or some other learning bayesian-based spam solution. Complaining about spam is so 1998, get with the times and eliminate it as a problem.

For you:

2004-06-18 01:21:03 PM  
Shouldn't he be like 800lbs. by now?
2004-06-18 01:21:09 PM  
Sad thing is, shortly after he left, the elevators broke again. Look for another headline in eight years.
2004-06-18 01:21:37 PM  
What's the over/under on the number of days before he breaks a hip?
2004-06-18 01:24:44 PM  
2004-06-18 01:25:04 PM  
Those teenagers scare me.
2004-06-18 01:25:05 PM  
haha grandpa joe better stay away from fizzy lifting drinks
2004-06-18 01:26:29 PM  
He's at that age where farmer's markets start to look like appealing targets. He left his home to scope out the prospects.
2004-06-18 01:27:50 PM  
I hear he's going to help Val Kilmer stop that evil dean from using his invention as a military weapon.

That, and he just won 75% of the prizes in that write in Cheeto's contest.

I hear Tom Hanks is pegged to star in the film version.
You'll love it.
You do love Tom Hanks, don't you?
Sure you do.
You love him.
Now give Tom $8.
2004-06-18 01:44:24 PM

Alot harder than just pushing one down, Bassmonkey144.

"You mean we can leave our homes?"

Yeah, we can, but, why would you want to?
2004-06-18 01:47:26 PM  
Having personally experienced the typically "laid back" work ethics of Caribbean folks in general (in business dealings), I'm surprised it didn't take longer to get fixed.

Poor oldtimer. :-(
2004-06-18 02:01:44 PM  
What was he eating all this time?
The other people on the 8th floor?

(anybody havin a fark slowness issue?)
Ahhhhh, there she is again!
Gaddammittt, powderpuffgurl, why can't you leave us alone?

/just askin'

My Great Uncle stayed in his NY city apartment for 7 years because he was to fat to walk farther away then his toilet. He then had a heart attack and it took a lot of people to get him down the 7 flights of stairs to the ambulance. Then he died. My grandpa and my aunt had a hell of a time cleaning the place. He was a good guy though.
2004-06-18 02:19:06 PM

2004-06-18 09:06:54 PM  
The real bugger of it all was that he locked himself out
2004-06-18 10:22:53 PM  
old news, saw it on Monk
2004-06-18 10:24:12 PM  
The sad thing is he lost 8 years of life really & now he will probably drop dead any day.
/sorry I read this sad story
2004-06-18 10:26:15 PM
