    I think it was in the "Feedback on Himes Machinery" thread in general. Don't trust my memory as I am an insomniac that gets up in the middle of the night to internet surf.

    Probably because the attacker realized (s)he'd overdone it. That those very details painted a trail to a rather small number of probable perps.

    I've neither interest in nor opinion as to whether the target (Himes) deserves that sort of attention or not. The entire tale has reeked of dead fish from the outset.

    I would observe that the attacker is an amateur, overly emotional, foolish, and very possibly an out-and-out nutter in general.

    Byproduct of a failed hemorrhoid transplant, one supposes.

    Seems the new tissue rejected him, and strongly enough to catapult him clear across the North Sea.

    Hard to tell WHAT the Scots want, any given hour.

    I does seem that the post devolution and post-Brexit vote aftermath, each case, was for all sides to pay closer attention to detail and challenge more of what they had been / are being bullshat about.

    Even so, for every person who might now switch "sides", there is probably a near-as-dammit exact match in the count going the opposite direction.

    I thought it was funny. First Scotland had the choice to be independent but they didn't want that, they wanted to be part of Great Britain. Then when Great Britain decided to leave the EU, Scotland decided maybe they wanted to be independent after all

    Damn. I saw this thread resurrected and thought, "Finally, I'm gonna read where somebody tracked down Mr. Himes and gave him an accident" but no such luck.

    Standard Scottish thrift is all.

    Highwayman accosts a Scot at gunpoint, says:

    "Your money, or your life!"

    Scot replies:

    "Ye'll have to take me life, then. I'm savin' tha' money for me old age!"
