For those who didn't know, frequent UP poster Hot Rod passed away on the 23rd of December. He posted here from time to time so it's fitting that he get a RIP thread here.

RIP Hot Rod aka Clark Johnson IRL

he and I sparred often on UP. his death changes nothing about my opinion of him (I.e. that he was a complete fuckhead). But I concede that his presence was overall a good thing and that UP will suffer for his loss. I don't believe in an afterlife (neither did he) but I hope he gets to do his motorcycle journey that he planned. no deas person ever hurt anyone and so I would want him to be happy

Oh wow, I didn't know this was real! He was a great guy, was one of the people who chipped in to help pay for the (very low) hosting cost we have.

This is the obituary that was linked in UP:


His presence will be missed in a variety of ways. I think he would have liked that.

"He was a collector and loved the USA."

Does anyone know what he collected?

Collector is often code for hoarder. But from the context, I would think he collected Americana and that his apartment was slightly overcrowded after he downsized. Nothing wrong with that. Fitting a lifetime into a few rooms is something we will all face eventually.

"Does anyone know what he collected?"

I heard a nasty rumor that he collected young boys. But it's just a nasty rumor. Probably more like what Jergul said, that he was just a hoarder. He was a lazy, lazy, lazy man and also in a wheelchair (where he lost his screwdriver and blamed it on ghosts) so it might have been difficult for him to keep his sad, lonely apartment organized.

Then, lacking anything positive to say about his psychotic Trump-voting uncle, his nephew probably just said "uh, he was a collector" for the purposes of the obituary.

He was a bone collector. I enjoyed his presence.
