    If you haven't noticed by now, to Larry, everything in life is a
    conspriracy designed to extract an extra dollar from him. He is one
    ofhte leading sighters of black helicopters in usenet, and typically is
    laughed off one newsgroup after another. It's too bad, because I think
    at heart he really is a pretty decent guy.

    If you haven't noticed by now, to Larry, everything in life is a
    conspriracy designed to extract an extra dollar from him. He is one
    ofhte leading sighters of black helicopters in usenet, and typically is
    laughed off one newsgroup after another. It's too bad, because I think
    at heart he really is a pretty decent guy.

    If you haven't noticed by now, to Larry, everything in life is a
    conspriracy designed to extract an extra dollar from him. He is one
    ofhte leading sighters of black helicopters in usenet, and typically is
    laughed off one newsgroup after another. It's too bad, because I think
    at heart he really is a pretty decent guy.

    Larry is very well 'versed' in electronics and RF theory. At least analog
    RF and ham radio, etc. That is why his ad nauseam rants and endless
    campaign of mis-information are all the more pathetic.

    He knows better....
