    I don't know much about him either. In fact, when this story first came out, it was the first time I heard of him. That said, putting aside if he cheated or not, of course most people would fight tooth and nail for a big accomplishment, let alone a hard one.

    Why would he choose now? His record was expunged for a while. So, why would he come out now and fight it? Hm. Either way, I couldn't care less. Real issues going on, don't need some man child taking up my time.

    I have no idea of this guy, but it is funny how people who probably have never EVER known him, seem to hate him so much! It is hilarious... Is it the hair? Hahhhaha

    Coincidentally, Twinkie is what I keep seeing whenever I glance at the name Twin Galaxies before rereading.

    The guys a c*nt... regardless of any talent he's ever shown at anything, his arrogant, obnoxious attitude and personality demands that he is universally hated.

    I swear every time i hear Billy Mitchell news, I care less and less.
    Mostly because at this point I expect him to literally sue every last person on earth if it means he can get his record back.
    He's just a manchild honestly...

    has any of you any proof that mitchell or twin galaxies is in the wrong? no.
    I'm not taking any sides here without actual hard proof verified by myself, but I have no time to be verifying things like this.
    in a case of this guy word vs this other guy word it's better to remain neutral.

    I did see a reading by a lawyer (link above somewhere) and follow along with the court documents (were still up yesterday when I looked). Twin Galaxies looked to be on the back foot (which is presumably why Guinness took the easy route) and this in addition to my general opinion that emulation is not inherently cheating (not a great look by any means but not inherently) which I believe is still what they are going with.

    That video in the source link is kind of funny. Billy Mitchell comes off like a pro wrestler character. He's so up his own butt, to a point where it's fascinating.

    I mean, GWR is known for being extremely corrupt and lacking any sort of integrity in its verification methods.

    is 2018 good enough for you?


    here have a pacman video too.


    I'm not taking sides, but Billy knows his stuff and Twin Galaxies also has his fare share of shadiness.
    what I'm trying to say is that we shouldn't trust anyone involved in this.

    Some day I think the Billy Mitchell look will really take off, and you'll start seeing a bunch of Billy Mitchell prototypes running around.
