    Hello to you all. I used to be a very good chum of the late "great" Jarinor who as far as I understand, used to be some what of a figurehead on this forum. It is such a shame what happend to him, extinguished before his time. Here are my respects Jarinor, rest in piece my old friend.

    Perhaps he's a friend of Jarinor in real life, who has tasked himself to make his fate known to anyone who knew Jarinor?

    Well, I suppose I'm just feeling a bit sentimental at the moment. Jarinor was a person I would talk to about my deepest troubles and hardships. I never met him in person, however I think at one point I had spent more time playing online chess and making philosophical debate with him than doing anything else.
    I do remeber signing up here and posting replies to a few of his rediculous rants but I can't remeber for the life of me what my username was.
    I will be including a character that pays homage to him in my next book. A cameo role of course.

    You're either a genuine friend of Jarinor, in which case you have my sympathies and have to forgive me for my suspiciousness, or you are yet another incarnation of Hellbokos, in which case a Jarinor rant followed by a swift banning would be in order.

    Be that as it may, three cheers to Brisbane's greatest son, fathered by an avid gun collector, mothered by a lesbian. The world will never know a ranter quite like him. In fact, his ramblings and command of the English language as far as the invective went was the very thing that made me attached to this place.

    Indeed, raising a can of XXXX larger. It is heartwarming to see others who appreciate and value his memory. Thank you Dark Elf for you perfect words. I was thinking of holding some kind of memorial service for him and friends of his are more than welcome. Travel would be paid for. Feel free to message me if you knew him quite well and or even liked him. I know that him being the person he was, must have made quite a few enemies also. EDIT: Sapient, that would have been my username for sure. Would have been 2001-2002 I believe. I was Sapient everywhere I went on the internet back then. I believed that as an evolved being I could act without Judgement. Jarinor didn't believe that for a second. And he was right.

    What is with the name of the thread? In addition, I came here just before he disappeared. I can remember him, but do not know him that well. Nevertheless, what I do know, that he was a cool person. Did not we lose him with WoW?

    Wait, Jarinor actually died? I didn't think the tree thing was real.

    For those of us who never knew Jarinor, would somebody please compile a "Best of..." list of links to specific rants?

    Oh? That's very suspicious, if not coincidental.

    Ahh, my apologies, the thread title is a reference to one of my published books. It is titled "A Tumour In The Whale". It discusses a friend of a friend idea.
    What do I think about the United Kingdom? I don't really know what to say to answer that question. Could you be a bit more specific?

    What is the purpose of this rather unentertaining troll again?

    You're quite obsessed with this place, aren't you?
