Theo is CFO for a company that produces parachutes used for jumping into abandoned wells.

You mean the parachutes that Barnes uses?

It's Barnes1 to you.

Bobad, heybud, EdEitel (although we did see him at PB-V), DIED, JoeG, EdRichter, BobKoerber, and so many others...

Not everyone feels the need to post on the forum or even to logon. I think many are just browsing as guests.

Perhaps if we keep this thread active some will logon to give us a quick update.

Sometimes the parachutes don't work either...so it's appropriate that the URL is a little iffy.



Maybe we need to be looking at the bottom of some wells.....although I seem to remember that heybud may have run afoul of the GSA, and DIED's commitment to L. cyanellus was always somewhat questionable.

And I know for a fact he swore off aluminum foil sometime in mid 2010.

Yeah, I remember hearing that rumor, too, but the real reason for his disappearnce is much more sinister.

Theo finally tired of playing second fiddle in the Pond Boss world, which he came to view as limited in potential, as well as being full of annoying people like Sunil. He's launched an alternative publication which he calls "Pollboss", and is at this moment chasing a 2500 pound bull across a field in central Indiana with pair of boltcutters.

Ed Richter just posted today!

Was he "Real Bad Snake" dude, or "CopperheadedRattleMocassin?"

If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

Could this be him? A past post from Cecil....

The officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have the authority of the state government of Oregon with me!" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and shoved it in my face. "See this #%@ing badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land !! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear?.... do you understand?!!"

I nodded politely, apologized, and went about my chores. A short time later, I heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the officer running for his life, being chased by my big old mean bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified.

I threw down my tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of my lungs.....

"Your badge, show him your #%@ing BADGE!!"

I don't think that was Theo. I wouldn't expect such poor planning or such a needless expenditure of energy on his part. I would imagine that by now, Theo has either developed an elegant technical solution to bovine immobilization, or more likely, has learned how to calm and cajole his target animals into submission. You know, kind of a "bull whisperer" type approach.

Okay, Here's what happened. I was talking to Jeff and made some derogatory remark about green sunfish. shortly there after, I saw a flash of bright light. Next thing I know I woke up in a Brazilian rain forest. I have been trying to make it home ever since. Here is a suggestion to all of you, never ever cross the GSA. That's my story and I'm stickin with it.

I would never go there, I get shivers just thinking of what can happen. I won't broach the subject even in private, not even in my thoughts, not even wearing a colander on my head.

Come on guys. The GSF is a peace loving organization. There's no reason for you guys to stay away from PB.
Scared huh???


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.
