So I thought that I would read through this thread to
try and get to know Kifer a little better no dig up some info for later blackmail usage noentertain myself for a bit. Turns out you all don't know a damned thing about Kifer.
Well, now you get to learn a little bit of history on this guy.
As a kid, Josh really liked destroying things. Anything. Crayons... eaten. Glue..... slurped. Rocks.... smashed. Toys.... shoved into orifices. Coins.... thrown at anyone passing by. We think that may have been one of the reasons why he wanted to get into the milling business. He developed a taste for leaded paint chips early on, and grinding out leaded clay powder plus getting paid for it, well, that was a no brainer.
It also meant that he started schooling early. No, not because he was really bright for his age. It was because it was the only way they could get state sanctioned people to try and monitor his behaviour.
I went to the same school as him. Well, I started at the school after he did, but we did share one year together in fifth grade. I think that was his 8th time in that grade. He finally graduated elementary school about 4 years after I got out of high school, but he did get through it. He definitely sees things through to completion.
Josh was never much into playing cards though. We had a local group that would like to hang out and play some penny ante poker. Deuces are wild and that kind of stuff. He didn't come out very often. The few times that he did, he wouldn't play. He'd just sit around waiting to look at all the playing cards. Turns out he has a bit of a fascination with cards. Just not actually playing with them.
It's nice that he's found a community to share with these days. One that
is horrified byappreciates his particular skill set of destroying beautiful things.
In all honesty, I don't know Josh. I've only had a few interactions with him, one where we bid each other up on a set of chips. Ones where I keep asking to win one of his giveaways, and he took pity on me for my birthday and actually made me into a winner. Well. Kind of. Paging Barrie. One where I said I'd buy out the stock of his cards when I get back to Canada, so now I am struggling to find a way to stay in France. In all the interactions though, he's been a regular cool dude. Just the kind of guy that I think I would really enjoy sitting around a card table sharing stories, and eating his food. Seriously, that crack casserole sounded so good.
So yeah, I don't know him. I'd like to get to know him. I think he's one of the good guys out there. Even if
especially becausehe can be a dick.
Even if that's the only end result, it's all good. Here's to ya Josh.Thanks to all the rest of you for participating. Josh was having a rough week and I thought this thread might give him some good laughs.
