I got slashdotted! Yay!

I also claim that Slashdot people usually are
smelly and eat their boogers, and have an IQ
slightly lower than my daughters pet hamster
(that's "hamster" without a "p", btw, for any
slashdot posters out there. Try to follow me,

Furthermore, I claim that anybody that hasn't
noticed by now that I'm an opinionated bastard,
and that "impolite" is my middle name, is lacking
a few clues. Finally, it's clear that I'm not
only the smartest person around, I'm also
incredibly good-looking, and that my infallible
charm is also second only to my becoming modesty.

So there. Just to clarify.
