He never came close to inflicting any damage but he put on a good show so the cast would sometimes assemble with drinks & chairs to cheer him on.

I have to say that sootblowercharliecharlie didn't let me down even though he only flew one mission.

"Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life. Thus people haunted by the purposelessness of their lives try to find a new content not only by dedicating themselves to a holy cause but also by nursing a fanatical grievance. A mass movement offers them unlimited opportunities for both."
