graphomancy?--"Shut up, Brx." 13:20, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

There's probably a real word for it. I meant scouring any random shit in lyrics for spurious meaning - David Gerard (talk) 18:09, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Does anyone know who this person is?[edit]

I want to look him up, but he never mentions his name. Claims to be an Ex-FBI member with proof exposing every theory under the sun. One problem: His name is not given.

If you're wondering why I put this on Tupac: It's because the title of the video.--ReptoidKiller (talk) 15:51, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Um, his name's in the video. Ted Gunderson. Some loon, who knows/cares. (talk) 16:10, 13 March 2016 (UTC)


Why would you revert my changes? The current nonsense about tattoos/stupidity/imitation/losers is absolutely baseless. Provide a reason or I will try to fix it once again. Why, hello there. (talk) 12:04, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

To have a "thug life" tattoo, you need street cred, yo.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 12:08, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
What are you talking about? Was that supposed to be some kind of semi-racist joke or satire? Anybody of legal age can get that tattoo for any reason they wish it doesn't mean they're a loser or have low intelligence. It means they want the phrase to be on them as a tattoo-tattooing is a very common practice in modern society. Why, hello there. (talk) 12:11, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
It was satire.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 12:15, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
You seem like an intelligent person- are you still against me removing the part about drooling stupidity and losers? It isn't under fun and it isn't really snarky- a critical/sharp comment. If you are, can you actually explain why? Why, hello there. (talk) 12:19, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Boku janai, boku janai...
Sry, couldn't resist (Valvrave fan here)--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 12:26, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
It wasn't Arisboch that reverted you. (talk) 12:21, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
I know this, but I thought he was against it as well after he said that. I guess he was just purely joking around with this talk page part, now that I think about it and I took it too seriously/was butthurt. Why, hello there. (talk) 12:23, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
I meant it to be understood as agreeing with your post.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 12:24, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I'm sorry again I took it too seriously/was butthurt. I'm not the greatest person at intercepting hidden (if you will) connotations. I prefer bluntness but that's just me. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Why, hello there. (talk) 12:27, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
No problem at all.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 12:28, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
No, having a tattoo like that is objectively droolingly stupid, and there's no reason to pretend it isn't - David Gerard (talk) 13:10, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Rly? Why?--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 13:11, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
There doesn't appear to be a real connection...the burden of proof is on you to prove it. Somebody can say anything in the blank _____ is objectively droolingly stupid, and there's no reason to pretend it isn't. Why, hello there. (talk) 13:42, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
You know, even assuming it's as unilaterally stupid as you say it is (a view I don't share), why make such a big deal about it? Who's it supposed to help? Or is it just about shaming people that like a particular kind of tattoo? (talk) 19:00, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
