Please God make it stop!



There was a nice, quiet 4 days at the end of page11 and beginning of page12 (13 days ago) when GROG could come to Tiki Central and not have to see this damned thread. 19 pages and nothing has been accomplished but a bunch of speculation and a lot of bitching and moaning and squabbling.

Hopefully this thread can stop, and resume when there is something for certain.

...or maybe, people ONLY need to chime in when actual FACTS are brought to light.

In any case, if the thread annoys anyone, why post to it, and inflame it even more?? The pot stirrers know who they are, and what they do. It's like childish "watch me!" "watch me!" posts....moronic and self fulfilling stupidity, at best.

lol, carry on with the FACTS and/or EVIDENCE, and we will all be good. If you have neither of those to contribute, then do everyone a favor who is intrigued with Rufus' whereabouts, and refrain from posting a reply. I will be following my own advice as well, after this one post.

I only care to read the discoveries of Rufus....not the cat-fights, assumptions, accusations, randumb filler, and the like...

Thanks,
Signed the true fans for the whereabouts of Rufus, of Tiki Centralandia.

I'm just posting this to clear up any misconceptions people seem to have about the chances of Rufus surviving if he WAS put into a pond.

Tropical fish should ideally be kept at a temperature of approximately 24 degrees (75.2). A few degrees either side of that, 71.6-78.8, is not an issue provided that the temperature stays stable. It is the not the high or low temperatures that will kill fish, it is the temperature fluctuations, as these cause stress in the fish and that's when the they break out in disease.

At higher temperatures a fish's metabolism increases so that means they are more active, they eat more and their bodies work harder. As their bodies are working harder this can decrease the fish's lifespan. The opposite is true for cooler temperatures. The fish are not as active and don't eat as much. I'm not 100% sure how cooler water affects their lifespan.

Now when it comes to a pond the larger the body of water, the longer it takes for it to change temperature. So as an example, if the ambient temperature outside drops drastically overnight but increases back to the same temperature it was the day before the water in a pond will most likely not be effected, however, that does depend on the size of the pond. A pond the size of a bathtub will be affected a lot more than a pond the size of an Olympic sized swimming pool.

I don't live in California so i am not aware of the the way temperature changes but if it's 78.8 for a week then drops to 71.6 for to two weeks then climbs back up again for a few days and then drops again, etc. THAT is what causes stress in the fish and can kill it, the fluctuations, NOT living in a temperature a few degrees different to what it is used. Provided it is introduced to the different temperature slowly.

I hope that clears things up for people who think that IF Rufus was thrown into a pond it meant certain death, because that is not necessarily true.

However, for me, I would choose asinine, disgusting, needless, horrific, stupid, shameful, negligent, reckless, revolting and some other words that the TC code of conduct prohibits me from posting.

Alan Zhu, the new owner, could have done the right thing, stepped aside and not interfered with Rufus' pre-arranged transfer to Damon's, where one of the bartenders proudly pointed out to me where his tank would be located.

Greedily, the new owner wanted to keep Rufus and, in addition, the $1,000.00 HLA raised for Rufus' transfer, claiming that he deserved the $1K for transferring Rufus to a new tank, which seemingly was never done. Had he actually followed through on his word, we would have been sent actual photos of Rufus, not the phony photos which Fez Moai fraudulently tried to pass off, as THOR warned and predicted, and which Atomic Tiki Punk and others appropriately called him out for doing.

Instead of doing the right thing, the greedy bastard tried to keep Rufus for his own business, but apparently was too cheap to continue to pay Rufus' longtime caretaker. As Aquari and others pointed out, the new owner recklessly exposed Rufus to an almost certain death by placing him in some sort of garden koi pond.

I don't have the monopoly on the facts here, so if I've missed something, please so indicate.

Looks like I have a slander lawsuit here. Fraudulently passed off, huh? Can you prove that?
Unfortunately the moderator doesn't seem to be stepping in and stopping these unfounded accusations. What's going on here Haka?

O.K! LOCK THE THREAD! PLEASE…. it no longer is of service to the cause! I asked NUMEROUS times for no more ego battles and banter!!! The productivity is GONE! Let's lock it! ..and I will tell yah why! The bullshit over rode the cause. No answers, and a lot of promises and hope, not delivered on! This thread was to lock when I gave the thumbs up ! The "good intent" of this was recognized by moderators, Fez! That's what it was aloud to stay open! I am sick of this…FINALLY. I have to hope good old fashioned "fate" will make good on this! "Thanks" for "helping" Rufus and the spirit of Bahooka!

Fez Moai, please send me a PM and I will give you my full name and address to enable you to draft and serve your Complaint. If you need law firm referrals, I will happily provide those, too. If no attorney will take your worthless case, and you need to file in pro per, I might even help you draft the Complaint.

Of course, filed with my Answer to your Complaint will be an anti-Slap motion seeking attorney fees. All I ask in return is that Alan Zhu also is named as a plaintiff in the Complaint, so I can file my motion against someone with the resources to pay those attorney fees.

I have a 16 sample on my desktop right now from another case, so, please, make my day.

if you lot had any genuine respect at all for mid-century tradition, you'd be setting a time to meet up in the parking lot and settle this like men-- with a good old-fashioned fist fight. (I wager twenty bucks on the fat guy btw, any takers...)
