Several statements indicating ability to use thesaurus and sound educated in contrast to previous posters without much actual addition to content of discussion.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Replication of information from various sites without attribution so as to make it appear I am knowledgeable in the area under discussion, which is still not the topic of the thread.

Reference to original post. Expression of astonishment that someone would cast aspersions on honest request for assistance and information.

Abbreviation indicating previous post was not read; suggestion that poster learn about left-justification and using the enter key to create paragraph breaks.

Attempt to return to original topic; peevish complaint about lack of answers to questions posed.

Reminiscences of old oil/gasoline company, including discussion of soap, inflatable toy (with admonishment not to go somewhere with that one shouldn't go), neighborhood location, and gas prices about 29 cents or so/gallon.

Comment about own's age.

Heavy sigh.

Appreciation for verification of gas prices.

YouTube of song recalling days gone by.

Admission for preference of current time, video notwithstanding.

trying to "impress/fit in" where you relate to pictures more than text but want to "show off" your own pictures yearning acceptance

Newcomer makes trivial comment long after thread has died, forcing everyone to re-live everything that has already been said in order to ascertain what the thread was about in the first place.

Enthusiastic welcome to newcomer with thanks for reviving topic of great interest.

Link to relatively recent article from unreliable publication, with questions regarding information in article.
