Because it's gripping to watch. That's all. No lessons, no food for thought, no introspection.

what I was trying to do was sarcastically impersonate the climber in the video with some critical analysis. I thought it was obvious, who would boast about incredible skill while making a complete jackass out of themselves on line, but I guess there are people out there who just believe there are people who are inexperienced and proud of it, and that I was that man. Although I have never met anyone like that myself. Maybe there are people out there who wanted to believe that the man in the video finally had a voice. You can see from the first lines that the post is meant to be sarcastic,...

No, most couldn't, frankly because you don't have the writing ability to adequately convey that.

Then why did you say it was hypothetical? You wrote: "Since you're now in totally hypothetical-land, I'd have tapped my communicator and had Scotty beam me up."

How hard do you think that section is anyway without a rope? If someone will help pay my airfare when it gets slushy, I'll give it a go on video, it does not look that hard, does it? I would like to see it dry tooled.

What the post looked like, to me, was that you were trying to pull off that it was, in fact, yourself in the video. Which was very strange, since most who knew who you are and had seen the video knew the two aren't the same. My thought was (yes, I was thinking, but not in the lines you might have intended) "Why is he lying?"

One accepted and easy way to convey sarcasm on an the internet is to use tags. Before the post, you make this little sign: <sarcasm). And then when you finish writing, you put this little sign: </sarcasm). Or, you can do this: (end sarcastic rant).

Just a tip for those who find themselves wondering....

I don't think Shakespeare nor would have Juliet used signs for "Romeo, Romeo, Where art thou, Romeo?" It would not be very romantic.

So Juliet spoke sarcastically then, eh?

1. Do you know what this passage means?
2. WTF does this have to do with your tortured logic in this thread where you're not even able to follow what you said in your own posts?

"Spoke" is past tense, but I said "would have", which is future tense.

I am following [answering] RangerRob's post at this point, he wants me to answer what the topic is, was, and should be. And you never answered my question.

Bzzzt! "Would have" is the conditional past tense. Future tense is "will (do)".
