The greatest scientist who has never lived.
I would really like to read Gordon Freeman's fake thesis entitled "Observation of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Entanglement on Supraquantum Structures by Induction Through Nonlinear Transuranic Crystal of Extremely Long Wavelength (ELW) Pulse from Mode-Locked Source Array."

A rent-a-thug is a person who rents himself out in the name of thuggery, lethal or otherwise. In exchange for money, he will commit crimes for you. The amount of money required to successfully rent the thug will usually increase with the severity of the crime - i.e., it will cost more for him to kill your in-laws than to rob the corner store for food. As with almost any service, rates vary wildly and can also be negotiated. Rent-a-thugs can be employed on a single-assignment, multi-assignment, or permanent basis, depending on the circumstances and money paid. Rent-a-thugs provide a very convenient way to mount assaults on offending parties; provided the rent-a-thug is a professional and does not confess to the police, the crime is never traced back to you. The truly valuable rent-a-thugs are never caught, and the ones who are promptly take their own lives, usually by swallowing cyanide pills and the like. It is wise to be extremely careful of whom you employ.
if you are sworn enemies with someone, and someone else shows up to give you a good thrashing, you can be sure that someone is your enemy's rent-a-thug.

Someone who beleives something to be true, when that something can be empirically proved to be nonexistent or otherwise incorrect. A snippet from an e-mail follows:

i recently lost my job and all my belonings do to being hospitail lised with the va .I HAVE HADE 7 BLIEDINGS IN THE PAS 3 -4 YEAR I WILL NEVER WORK AGAIN FOR MY LIVE i found this site very intresting and wood like very much try and find some covert in the study of ariail if you could help me be a member it wood mean so much to me your va patient patrick

Ilive in a travel trailer and have for 4 years sents my first bleed its been down heal from their my email thank you for your time it really goes faster thin you thank

This snippet is presented unedited, except for the e-mail address, which has been excised to protect privacy - and delusion. As you can plainly tell, the person here has suffered greatly from "BLIEDINGS" - which we think is synonymous with "bleedings" which would make this person delusional, as people (including stigmatics) do not spontaneously bleed. This person also thinks he can find comfort from his "BLIEDINGS" in studying aerial photos. You may notice that the phrase used is "find some covert", which indicates that this person may in fact be using aerial photos to conduct covert missions from the comfort of his VA hospital bed.

Whatever he's looking for, I certainly hope he finds it.
It is plainly obvious that "patrick" is delusional.
