Wait. You think that text you quoted was an insult? I only wrote that because I had disagreed with part of your post, and I wanted it to be clear that I was only disagreeing with part of it. That's all! That's no insult, and it certainly doesn't warrant you feeling the need to retaliate by accusing me of being intoxicated.
Your accusations of drug use are completely inappropriate. You really know very little about people if you think I'm using because it's "this time of year." Not everybody drinks or smokes or shoots up on New Year's, if you can imagine that.
My disagreement with the criminalization of drug use is based on my opinion of drug use, in that it is a problem that is better dealt with in other ways and does not warrant criminal punishment. Try to imagine supporting a cause in which you have no direct personal gain.
Maybe with more social contact, you would have more insight as to what people are really like. But don't expect that anytime soon, at least not from anyone who knows anything about you. As for those on this site, people here have seen how you are and what you do. You talk about desiring some kind of résumé from people, just to go out and do a supposedly friendly social trip on class-1 to 3 stuff. But even a résumé isn't good enough because your default is to doubt everything that anybody claims to have done.
You make yourself look psychotic when you "investigate" to such an extent a potential partner for a social class-3 trip. You doubt someone's substantial list of summits, as if the person had the time and interest and knowledge to falsify a hundred separate summit logs on class-2, 3, and 4 peaks he didn't climb. Nobody wants to have a history that includes some very significant peak achievements, only to have 200 of his moderate achievements doubted by some guy who claims to have seen false peak résumés in the past, 30 years ago at the Sierra Club.
So there you go again in your above post, complaining that nobody wants to hook up with you for a hike. Are you really surprised? There are all kinds of people on this site that meet other people and go for hikes all the time. In order to achieve this they're not doing anything special; they're just not creeping people out by doing a 1000Pks P.I. investigation of their summit logs. I have met and hiked with several people from this site, and I didn't even have to solicit for partners in order to do so. Just don't creep people out, and you'll have better luck.
Acknowledgement of denial is the first step to recovery. You must have an issue as I am posting solely for a good reason--to inform people. Why I should get your slurs and this subsequent rant is beyond me. What reason to interpret my posts in this hateful way, most will infer some agenda. I don't know what your problem is, many people here do have one and happily admit it. Obviously you seek to pick a fight, similar for many MLC SC. Why that is, we can only speculate. I'd suggest an anger management class.
BTW, doesn't good dieting and exercise sound like the proper way to lose weight? Works for me!
