a thisistheshow anecdote
still miss the guy. lots of great memories he provided. some were downright funny, and this is one of them.
so, Eric was a smart guy. no question about it. he read a lot and took pride in being well-versed in many topics. but when it came time to decipher alts on this forum, he had a difficult time connecting the dots when someone was trying to pull a fast one.
one day he messaged me out of the blue and was convinced that...........wait for it..............hydrant and doubledragon were the same person. i thought surely he's joking, but alas he was not. how he came to that conclusion i'm not sure, but it took me a day or so to talk him off the ledge.
i still get a kick out of that to this day.
