Youíre probably right that itís not Bill Skinner. RS posts have a different pattern than Billís.

Even if it isnít someone who is already using a different name, RS is clearly trolling the forums. I stopped talking directly to RS a while ago and now only talk about him instead of engaging in his silliness.  Itís a pretty good prank, and entertaining enough, but itís started getting old now.

If RS is Apex then this would be the prank of the century. The really small differences in writing style are very hard to fake and there were some things Apex did that were very distinctive and pointed him out as Austrian (I'm pretty sure he was Austrian if I remember correctly). RS is definitely American. Everything about this description of how to make exploding rocks screams Appalachian folk magic. The only thing missing is doing the whole process by the light of a full Moon whilst saying the Lord's Prayer backwards.


Right, I agree. There was one post where he started talking about physics and that had me wondering. But it would be very hard to write like Apex and RS. Fact is, there are some strange people out there with nothing else to do but post made up stuff.

What's strange about this case is how adamant he is that it's true. That I find very odd.

Itís very possible that RS even believes himself.

I once knew a guy who told everyone he met that he was the illegitimate son of Chubby Checkers. He had a whole binder full of photos of him and the real Chubby Checkers. Iím not sure if the photos were real, but it was an impressively detailed  fantasy. He even claimed that CC had hired a reputation company to scrub all information about the illegitimate son from the Internet.

Whether RS is crazy, bored, or an elaborate prank, Iím sure he doesnít actually posess any ancient secrets to slinging.

... or should I say... noodling!  LOL  Grin

I have to say, that one still cracks me up. Someone needs to make a bumper sticker or a t-shirt that says,ĒJesus was a noodlerĒ
