    is it possible that the solomon guy web searched James Veitch and realised he was a comedian and was trolling him too ?

    This guy got a standing applause for what I thought was an online sport for twenty years now. I am a bit slow, but I think I might have it; the game is to entertain normies with neurologically atypical behaviour that they find amusing. It might result in a lot of failures, but I can give new and exciting entertainment opportunities to cheap fail personas and keep the stuff they find as gold for my thoroughbred performers to trot out with at shows...
