    been away for a while--what happened to Benny?

    I haven't been in the PR much lately, but miss the good laughs of the back and forth between Benny and his many foes. I'm hoping he's ok and just stopped posting for some reason.

    Benny is the sound of a hummingbird's wings. He is the little tongues of flame that rise up from logs in the fireplace. He is the cooling breeze that flows from the box fan in the server room door. Benny is everywhere and nowhere.
    Brandine: Now Cletus, if I catch you with pig lipstick on your collar one more time you ain't gonna be allowed to sleep in the barn no more!
    Cletus: Duly noted.

    I'm guessing he ended up getting a job replacing the tire shop employee he got fired.

    What actually did cause the end of Benny? I remember he had a total metldown, but don't remember the exact topic. I'm sure it was something idiotic.

    All I know is that his last words were memorable. He saw things you wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. He watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments were lost in time, like tears in rain... Time to die.

    I thought his profile said banned last time I came across one of his posts. I missed it too.

    Benny was an unstoppable force. In a way he was like a giant, planet destroying space station, but some teenage rebels found a weak spot in a vent.

    Wait, which movie are we doing?
    No longer stuck.

    There was One Ring to rule them all, but Shai Hulud took the sword from the stone, and now the Man in the Moon is made from cheese.

    Benny had his moments. He certainly didn't come across as a particularly stable individual.

    There will be a book written about him and his teachings and actions pulled from the ashes of TGR by an AI scouring the way back machine. It will be a guide for living for future human generations.
    Several new religions will be born of it that will have different interpretations of his words and intentions and the faithful will go to war and kill each other to prove their version of the Benny sky fairy is the one true version,
    only he who is best prepared, with a toe pointing towards the heavens will survive....

    He did have some moments where I would of just stepped back and not posted, but Benny did like to argue here. IRL I found him to be a good guy and a very good skier. No idea what caused his implosion and self immolation.

    Holy shit - that there's one wild ride!

    Yeah, I also skied with him and IRL he is a cool guy. Also no idea why he melted down the way he did online.

    Here is my thread about skiing with him.

    I Skied With Benny Profane Today !
