I certainly don't. Man's a cowardly twat who refused to continue our argument over here, where he wasn't protected by the admin.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Remember when he demanded that people banned THERE be "pre-banned" HERE? That was hilarious!

He lasted about as long as other hypocritical lying twats like D'Rat, Patricio, UpChuck and the rest who think being on an internet forum is actually significant.

"Oh wait? You mean . . . being on a skeptical forum means . . . I have to . . . defend my claims? I can't just run to Mommy and demand sanctions! I'M A KOOL KID!!!"

As someone HERE would observe: "Pathetic."

The reproductions don't really do justice to his works which often use particular materials.

[Meret] Oppenheim was born in Berlin on October 6, 1913, but the family moved to Switzerland the following year when her father was conscripted for World War I.

She moved to Paris in 1932 to become a painter and in 1936 gained fame with “Breakfast in fur”. The teacup covered in gazelle fur was the result of an encounter with Picasso and his mistress Dora Maar in which they decided that anything could be made out of fur.

However, she found the overnight fame overwhelming, so she retreated back to Switzerland where she spent the rest of her life working outside all stylistic conventions and refusing all labels.

Oppenheim, who died in Basel in 1985, is considered a trailblazer of the avant-garde.

Most magazine reproductions are way too contrasty.
Everybody knows her Breakfast in fur (1936):

But she created lots of other fun thingies:

Interesting name.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shambles_ ... Manchester
Etymology[edit]
"Shambles" was a name originally used for a street of butchers shops where meat was slaughtered and sold. It is derived from the Middle English word schamel, which meant a bench, as for displaying meat for sale.[1] A shambles would have had blood, pieces of meat and offal running down the gutter,[2] and although the original meaning of the word fell into disuse, it survived as a word meaning a scene of disorder. There are also streets known as "The Shambles" in other towns in the United Kingdom, such as York, Stroud, Worcester, Sevenoaks, Chesterfield and Armagh, and a public house in Lutterworth which was once a butcher's shop and abbatoir.[3]
A "shambles" was originally a street of butcher shops.
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
William Shakespeare
