Knux: Recap Request

Post by ChuckleHuck » Thu Aug 16, 2007 9:18 am

I've heard so little of this guy, and yet he has his own memorial forrum.

From all I've heard, he's a really nice guy and died of a certain bone desease, yet...that's all.

I'm making this so that I could probbably swallow some knowledge of whoever this person was and how he came to be what of a memory he is today.

Knux was one of the top posters & coolest guys here for 6 years (and even a year postmortem still has the 4th highest all-time post count--3rd highest if you take Shane's real number); that's why we all knew him. He died just a couple weeks after you joined; that's why you don't.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Of course, when I did come here, the only thing I really did was troll.

Oh well. At least I got my recap.

...Thanks, man.

Yes, Shane has something like 20k real posts.

The other 107,000 were either added or Shanebotted.

He and I argued over most of his time here, and the last words I said to him were probably mean (Had I known the condition he was in, I might have understood his tendency to explode at my words); you may notice a lot of fighting between me and him in his old topics, and also in old stuff in this forum.

He was also a pokemon fan, coined the line "Don't eat the salmon", his nickname was Kunx, and for some reason after the 'been here longer than you' dispute, I never managed to fully come back until long after this stuff happened.

All in all, where many people have a good image of him, I have a bucket of regrets, unfinished business, and confusion. Ah well. Perhaps I can settle that after I die. @_@

Just think Chuck Norris with a Pokedicction, and anti-salmon. It's what I do, anyway.

He died during my 6 month haitus, but, from what I remember, he was a cool guy.

As much as I liked Knux, he really didn't come up with it. Shane did when he went through many name changes for VGF and I kept using it.

He was also a big fan of Survivor and SSBM. Lugia I'm pretty sure was his favorite pokemon. I remember back when I had the pokemon roleplayer going, I tricked him into thinking he caught a Lugia, when really he didnt. He threatened me soon after.

Knux loved Beanie Babies and was collecting all different types of beanie bears and other animals. His intense love of animals was probably his main interest, and he always wished to go on a safari tour of Africa. Knux's favourite animal was the girrafe, and he was very afraid of spiders.

Knux also collected Star Wars figurines and was an important part of an online Star Wars community (though which one it was escapes me at the moment), just as he was here. Knux always enjoyed joining in with AIM chats, entertaining and befriending everyone with his sense of humour and easy-going nature.

He loved Pokemon and was always so happy for everyone to come and participate in his topics in the Pokemon forum. Knux became synonomous with the jokes about sluts, bitchslapping and hot dickings XD which gives a pretty decent idea of his sense of humour.

He had a lot of interest in reality TV shows, such as Survivor and The Great Race, and followed each season closely.

All in all, Knux just liked people, though. Of course, he found some irritating and argued plenty, but he gained a lot of enjoyment in talking to everyone online, as his in-person socialising was heavily restricted from his illness. He broke his leg in a bike riding accident when he was younger, which, coupled with the blood problems, had him in and out of hospital up until his death. Knux had to undergo many many surgeries in an attempt to fix his leg, and treat infection, which ultimately led to his fatal illness.

He was compassionate and understanding and raised people's awareness of the benefits of donating blood (which he so often needed). Knux made us all laugh, was always willing to give a hug and was a wonderful friend that we will always miss greatly.

Me and him could probably relate in a few ways.

*sigh* I just remembered one time I was talking to him on aim and he was freaking out because I told him about the tiny little spider that was crawling around on my computer screen. It would turn around and run the other way whenever I moved the mouse cursor near it, so I was amusing myself by playing a game of "spider pong." Naturally, I did the thing I'd like to think any good friend would do. I steered it onto his username and told him about it. :p

good times...
