I have learned more by simply finding online resources, viewing/reading them, following “tutorials” etc. over the past several weeks, than I *ever* learned from Karl in nearly 30 years:

The most pleasant aspect of this (beyond the acquisition of knowledge itself), has been the fact that I have not had to sit through ass-face’s rhetorical questions about “how can I not know this stuff?” or “where have I been!!!!?”, or any of his other stock INSULTS.

Nor have I had to listen to him whining incessantly about how much his life sucks, how little money he has, how he doesn’t have “enough time” or “resources” to meaningfully sort through the detritus — er, I mean “computer collection’, etc.

I honestly hope that his rickety shit-bucket of a jeep has finally become utterly nonfunctional, resulting in him being fired from his job.  That state of affairs would probably result in him losing the storage units of scrap and (as a bonus) becoming homeless (due to nonpayment of rent) — ALSO resulting in the loss/destruction of the hoarded E-waste cluttering his trailer.

I genuinely hope the above scenario has occured.  There are very few individuals who i genuinely loathe — but I am becoming increasingly aware of the fact that Karl is definitely one of them.

  1. Karl is the guy who knows everything, until you actually press him, then mr. electronics major and genius extraordinaire says he doesn’t know the hard math (laplace/fourier transforms, definite integrals – how the fuck did he even graduate?!) and changes the subject or segues into how THEY don’t know the REAL science because it’s been suppressed by the government which is 100 years ahead.

    • What’s amusing about that is: isn’t the stupid dickhead on-line 24/7?

      Also, as to “how the fuck did he even graduate?” Easy: Pennsylvania College of Technology was essentially nothing but a glorified “vo-tech”.

      IIRC, he was there for what, two years? Moreover, I’m pretty sure that he took “applied”-type courses — where they don’t really delve that deeply into the theory, and/or the mathematical basis of “modeling those theories — if that makes any sense.

      Plus, he has always fancied himself to be the modern reincarnation of Nikola Tesla, or some shit along those lines. Thus — at least in his mind — it makes perfect sense for him NOT to bother knowing about stuff rooted in the “Edisonian paradigm”.

      TL;DR: he’s a pretentious douche-bag who somehow manages to also be a (barely) competent “installer”.

      Essentially indistinguishable from the guys who do “tech support” calls for our cable company — except for the fact that THEY openly admit to not knowing dick about what they’re doing, beyond being able to work step-wise through a “troubleshooting” thecklist displayed on their weird mobile-device thingies.

      Actually, I respect them *infinitely* more than I do Karl, for the simple reason that they don’t pretend to actually “understand” what they’re doing.
