Are you also a shorter-than-Gravitron, 4-eyes, nerdy-to-bone, failure-in-life, living-in-fantasy, wanna-be, sony-dumping, newbie who crawls on walls because he lost in KoF2k to K'Dash, Mr. Xander Parker?

I am shorter than many people, very possibly yourself included.

In fact, I have only two eyes. However, I do wear glasses. That might explain your confusion -- glasses can often look like eyes.

This one doesn't make any sense, either.

What is KoF2, and who is K'Dash?

Gravitron wrote:Mr. Xander Parker?

My last name is actually "Henderson." Most of the kids call me "Mr. Henderson" or "Mr. H." I will respond to either of those, or just "xander."

I hope that cleared up your confusion.

xander's finally lost it...


shinygerbil: one day, a couple of months ago, one of the first graders brought a Spiderman lunchbox into the cafeteria. I saw it and said, "Oh, you have a picture of me on your lunchbox!"

He said, "No, that's Spiderman!"

"Yeah, a picture of me. I'm Spiderman, but don't tell anyone. I don't want anyone to know."

"No way! You're not Spiderman!"

"Yes, I am."

"No, you're not!"

"Have you ever seen me and Spiderman in the same place at the same time?"

"...no..."

"See, I'm Spiderman!"

"Wow!"

Over the last couple of months, I have, with the help of the other teachers and the principle, convinced the entire first grade that I am Spiderman. When they talk to the principle about it, she tells them that I am hiding from the Green Goblin, making him think that I am dead. Then, when the time is right, I am going to catch him. I have to pretend that I am a computer teacher, so that he can't go after my friends and family. Yeah, it is a silly story, but it keeps the kids entertained. And I suspect that most of them don't really believe it, but it is funny.

You've mentioned it before, xander, and I do have a memory. :roll: But now I have the full story.

When I worked at a school, all the kids probably thought of me was that I was weird. But they all looked up to me when they forgot their password. Oh yes.

Also, there seems to me to be a spelling mistake in your post. It's not important, it's just a matter of principal ;)

I understand your principal concern, but in prinsiple, the printsople of good spelling is unprinssipled.

Uh, yeah...right.
Well then, I take it as so that the answers to all my questions were either yes or true.
Very well then, carry on...until the day you come face to face with a non-reformed bully unlike myself.
As for me, I'll just stand aside, point and laugh.
At you.
Ex-bullys can still laugh, right?
I mean, I'm not physically harming you, so it is allowed, legally.

(You may clix the pix.)

Man...it sure would've been feeling good to rough up "spiderman".
Hey, they call me the green goblin, have you seen "Mr. H", kids? :wink:


Seriously, WTF is wrong with Sony?
Wait, wrong question.
Rephrase.
Why in hell did they have to complete screw up Spiderman and make it a crappy nerd loser?
He probably was like that in the comics, I bet.
WTF is up with directors and going for the crappy, vastly illogical, borderline retarded, "original" comic versions whilst the cartoons were so way way way way way better and the movies would've been waaaaay off better being made after them.
X-Men comic: *puke*
X-Men cartoon: WHO"S DA REAL WOLVERINE? DO YOU FEEL LUCKY, PUNK?
Yeah...
I wonder if GIJOE had a crappy comic...
Sure is lucky thing TF:TM wasn't made out after the TF comics...then we'll have mr. pacafist wratched exchaning oil with galvatron right before the latter toss him onto Unicron's mouth.
Oh, and cybertron will transform into primacron and they go giant sumo wrestle, right... :roll:

Really, it's not so much to do with xander being here longer, but more to do with the fact that xander doesn't act like the rest of the world owes him a favour (for no other reason than being alive), or make himself look like a pretentious child nearly every time he posts.

Gravitron, you really should be careful what you ask for, by the way - if an 'ignore user' feature was added to the boards, as you've requested multiple times previously, I'm fairly certain you'd be on a good number of ignore lists yourself.

Most of the kids I ran into think I'm some kind of character from a Tim Burton movie.

Yay.
