    Ice cream too? Don't let me down like when I was a kid and the doctor promised me ice cream after my tonsilectomy, but all I got was some lousy ice pops. If there is REAL ice cream involved I'm gonna HMHDI for life!

    Wow I dont think any one knows what it means either. Everybody talking about how much they know and then all of a sudden someone asks a question and no one seems to know. I think egads is probably sniffing some panties and is tied up for the moment. thats why he can not respond.

    Has anyone else noticed that the original poster never came back to this thread? Troll? Or just scared away by reason?
    Don't take anything I say seriously... I certainly don't.

    It was obviously a troll from the start. I thought everybody knew that ;-)

    So you expect someone has been out hiking for a few months to tell an innocent dayhiker, "No, I'm not a thru-hiker because a couple of times I went off into the woods to do my business, and restarted my hike a few feet down the Trail, skipping many inches of the True Path." The poor dayhikers would start backing away, trembling, possibly dialing 911.
    If not NOW, then WHEN?

    Even after enjoying or probably more accurately suffering through my company for 6 months, do you all still not understand the concept of satire. I did notice that people did start running down the trail in the opposite direction when they saw me coming, or they would hide behind a tree and pretend they could not see me. I must say people were so intense on the trail, and I just had to slightly yank peoples chain to get a massive reaction, where I am from satire, black humor, and sledging are a way of life. Although there were many who had a marvelous sense of humor on the trail, but you were always in great danger if you took me literally, I thought the quip about purple hearts would have been the give away. Purism was always such a hot topic, it was like announcing you were a bandito at a hells angel convention.

    Hey Chaco, how did you know it was me, well spotted. I always paid for my accomodation on the trail, don't lump me in with a group from Chicago. I left the US on the 22 Sep and it was not long after that the US suffered its economic meltdown. I think my generous donations at hostels was keeping your economy afloat. With no more money from Daisy you are all being forced to sell your children for medical experiments.

    THe one thing I learnt from the trail was that attitude was everything, and a good sense of humor and not taking oneself too seriously was an absolute must. We experience our lives through the filter of beliefs, especially in hard times and there are many hard times on the trail, and being from another country made me a bit different as pointed out by HnH. These beliefs become a self-fulfilling prophesy as we attract to ourselves the very thing we project outwards about the world.

    I am so sorry for being so provocative, did not expect such a strong response, thought it may have given some people a bit of a wry smile. THis whole discussion reminds me of a time at a shelter that I anounced "eating chickes was unethical." What started as a joke, soon turned into a sceaming match between different groups. I should have learnt my lesson then.

    One commonly held opinion amongst the europeans that I've met is that Americans don't get satire, parody, or irony(or even know what irony really is).

    Heh, Ohio St. just came out with a study which shows that a sizeable chunk of a certain party doesn't get the joke about Colbert. They think he's real.

    Keep in mind that when you're dealing with Americans you're dealing with 45% that know stuff, 45% that feel stuff and 10% that don't care.

    You JOKED about chickens?! You're totally sick.
    You never turned around to see the frowns
    On the jugglers and the clowns
    When they all did tricks for you.
