    I am surprised no one has mentioned this here yet.
    One of the finest musicians of the 20th century.
    My first memories of her in the first Blues Brothers movie watching it in VHS as a young Trusteft.

    The news only hit very early this morning here and I was at work.

    Sadly, for me, my hearing loss prevented me from fully enjoying the legendary performers like her.

    But, fortunately, with my restored hearing and the recordings of these performances, I can enjoy their talents to a limited extent. Limited because, it's hard to beat the live performances.

    The amount of stupidity in this statement alone.
    Just.
    Sigh.

    If you can't figure it out for yourself, I am not going to waste my time.

    Clearly i can't... seems hypocritical that you find one thing stupid.. so i point out the stupidity overall.... and then you just find that stupid as well which just proves the point just that much more in which it's in no way in your favor.

    If it's honestly that difficult to explain, either you've nothing to or simply cannot explain, then whom is really stupid?

    How many times have you copped out now, starting to lose count, dropping the "you're stupid" or something along the lines of essentially saying "i'm going to say something completely unhelpful and potentially if not intentionally derogatory, but never going to explain as to why"

    It's the same reason I don't waste time explaining to flatearthers why they are so fucking stupid. If you are stupid enough to not understand what you are saying is stupid, you are waste of my time.
    Like it or not, I don't give a fuck. I have many other things to do than waste my time trying to explain to you something that shouldn't need explaining.
    You are not a child. You are not a retard. You are just an asshole who doesn't see further than his own ass which has clearly blocked your view to any type of decency and common fucking sense.
    This is "just" a forum. But if you can't figure out why going to a thread talking about a recently deceased and trying to act smart, is stupid, what's the fucking point talking to you about it?

    I am done talking to you about this. If you want to take it like anything else than what I am telling you, go ahead.

    I think that after all Judas and Trusteft simply will never get on regardless to what is said...

    This thread has now gone too far of the rails from the opening post.. It is now time to close this after all it's only going to become a FWZ post...

    And BTW: R.I.P. Aretha Franklin :(
