Oh man, so this is a long story but I'll try to compress it as much as possible. I'm an American, born and raised, and early netizen back in the day. About fifteen years ago, a Filipino judge, Florentino V Floro, was disbarred amidst reports he was unfit to be a judge. There were lots of reasons, but among them were the fact that he believed he had magic healing powers, that he could be in two places at the same time, and that he frequently received help in the courtroom from three magical duendes, Luis, Armand, and Angel. If you really care you can read his Wikipedia page, https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florentino_Floro
How on earth did this impact my life? Well, Judge Floro went on an Internet spree to share the story of his unjust disbarment with the world. I was a member of one of those forums and newsgroups and the situation tickled me pink. We exchanged messages in public and private back and forth for months, with Judge Floro "training" and advising me on the use of my latent psychic abilities. In reality I was just literally walking through all the Monk perks in my Dungeons and Dragons handbook. He didn't seem to mind and we had a very friendly discussion back and forth even though I was, let's say, doubtful of many of his claims. I got busy with other stuff being a teenager and we lost contact.
Why is this at all relevant now? Well, I just so happen to be traveling in the Philippines on vacation. And it so happens that I've caught a nasty cold. And I saw an ad for some judge and immediately remembered my old magical penpal with the healing powers. Could he colocate here and heal my stomachache?
You can upvote if you want to, but you probably don't have to. The one real magical power Judge Floro definitely possessed was the ability to know when he is mentioned anywhere on the Internet.
Cheers r/PH! Thanks for humoring me...
Visiting Glasgow for a few days and ended up writing a liquor cheque that my aging old body couldn't cash. I'm sitting on two extra handles of Smirnoff and one handle of Southern Comfort that I can't take through security with me tomorrow. Please PM if you're near central station/Argyle street and can give them an honorable death.
Please have ID to prove you're
21 18 and old enough to legally drink.
Edit : wow claimed in two minutes. Way to live up to your reputation, glasgow ;)
