 How I (very nearly) slept with Timothy from Slashdot!

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:

I know that some people like to fabricate false celebrity encounters to elevate their own self-worth and make themselves appear more "important" or "worldly" to their peers, but this really happened, I swear.

George Lucas is a Pathetic Dirty Thief!!!
The word.
In his latest Diary, Slashdot editor Timothy states the following:

Today I took photos documenting my in-progress trip from MD to VA to TN through AR to TX to OK and back for a while to TN. (I'm on the return through AR right now, at a Motel 6 ... Russelville, if you are handy with a Motel 6 directory.)

This was scribed on November 1st, at 12:45PM. One would assume that, more than likely, he checked into the Motel the previous night. That would mean that he was at Motel 6 #265 on the night of October 31. It just so happened that on October 30, a mere one day before, I slept in Russelville on my way back home from Little Rock -- only one day removed from Timmah. Not only that, but I originally planned to crash at the very Motel 6 that Timmah would be staying at the next night, until one of the local gas station rednecks talked me out of it and reminded me of some horror stories I'd heard concerning Motel 6 #265. So I stayed at the Best Western instead. I'd spent the previous two nights at Motel 6 #1081 in Little Rock, but hotels in Little Rock are rather overpriced, so for about the same price as Little Rock's Motel 6, I was able to acquire a room in Russelville that was free of vermin.

So anyway, the only things separating me from sleeping under the same roof as a Slashdot editor were one day and one random encounter. Had I not stopped at that one particular gas station and spoken to that one particular local, I would have slept at the same motel as Timmah, a mere 24 hours before his arrival. Had my schedule been pushed back one day, or Timmah's schedule forward a day, we would have been there at the same time.

Obviously, the powers that be work in mysterious ways, guiding our footsteps and keeping us safe from harm. I'm going to go ritually castrate myself now.

In other news, I've obtained employment for the next three months. It's rather simplistic PC installation/upgrade work, but for $175/day and considering the current job market, I guess I can't complain about the lack of mental stimulation. Before they trust me to be doing this rather simple work on my own, I had to watch someone else do this rather simplistic work for two days, and that's why I was in Little Rock. As I mentioned, I stayed at the Motel 6 there, and although it was a tolerable experience, I had a few complaints:

  • The staff kept the door to the lobby locked, forcing all business to be conducted through a plexiglass window with steel bars on it.
  • For some reason, no one offered to carry my baggage to my room.
  • There were a lot of poor people loitering around the motel (I assume they were lodging there), and they were quite scary-looking: many of them were wearing "gangster" clothing such as bandannas, skullcaps, and baggy jeans; and many of them were members of very disreputable races or ethnic groups.
  • The police in the area did nothing about the proliferation of poor-looking racially-questionable people in the area. They were probably all on drugs, but the police didn't even search them.

    I realize that the Motel 6 probably attracted many of the derelicts of society because it was the cheapest place of lodging in the area -- which leads me to the conclusion that there's no hotel chain that caters to people who AREN'T poor but don't want to pay a lot of money for a night's lodging. I propose that someone start a chain called Motel 7 that's exactly the same as Motel 6 except that to stay there, you have to prove that you're not poor. As it is now, you have to either stay somewhere else and pay a high price for lodging, or stay at the reasonably-priced Motel 6 and deal with poor people who, like 90% of poor people, would mug you if you turned your back on them.

    I kept a tight grip on my pepper spray, but fortunately I never had to use it on any of the thugs at the motel. I guess most of them were so zoned out from the narcotics in their blood that they didn't even notice me walking by.

    Back to the list:

  • I couldn't find the Room Service menu.
  • Likewise, I could not find the Hot Tub.
  • There was no hotel shampoo, and only two (woefully undersized) bars of hotel soap.
  • When the advertisement said "Free HBO", I had no idea that it meant the television would receive only HBO.

    Well, that about covers it. One last thing I want to mention: I've recently been made aware of THIS SITE, the ramblings of a flaming idiot Lunix user who's obviously jealous about the Internet's most controversial discussion site telling it like it is and exposing the truth about his little Commie OS.

    So who is behind InAdequacy.Org? A typical Lunix user, obviously, and a pathological idiot (but I repeat myself). I fancy myself something of an armchair psychologist, so based on my observations, here is my quick-and-dirty psychological profile on Linux King of InAdequacy.Org:

  • He likely spends at least 3 hours per day masturbating.
  • He's fanatical (fanatically stupid) about his toy OS, and is probably evangelically fundamentalist about his own particular distribution of it.
  • He's probably a paedophile, drooling over issues of Seventeen magazine (to which he has a lifetime subscription) and downloading gigabytes of pictures of half-naked teenage girls from the Internet.
  • He probably has no friends in real life, and his only social contact is most likely with maladjusted Internet freaks, and even they probably only barely tolerate him. Anyway, Lunix users annoy me more and more every day -- and now they're trying to destroy the site that gets it right. I hope that the editors of Adequacy are aware of the luser's site, which grossly infringed on their copyrights, and I hope they sue the living arse off of him. I hope to see an official response from Adequacy regarding what they plan to do about that site. Something needs to be done.

    You are quite lucky that none of those people attempted to engage you. They were most likely in a state of chemical enhancement that would prevent the pepper spray from having its desired effect.

    In situations such as those I would suggest that you arm yourself with a proper self defense handgun (something like a .357 Magnum or at least a .40 S&W). Since you were traveling, and our states have seen fit to infringe upon our Second Amendment rights, and our Courts have chosen to allow them to do so, I'll have to suggest that you educate yourself in hand to hand combat. It will offer much better protection than any commercially available pepper spray and isn't something you are likely to forget back in your room.

    I'm aware of the financial problems in the whole VA Linux/OSDN//. empire, do you suppose that the editor you named was dealing Columbian cocaine and Afghani heroin (unkowingly part of a Communist=backed plot to spread Linux and sap the will of right thinking Americans)? Under the cover of a roaming journalist, he would have access to all sorts of scum and lowlifes.

    The only communism in youê country comes from Microsoft.

    The Open Sores folks may be frightfully stupid and misguided, but at least they are honest, god-fearing, patriotic Americans.

    Please, don't consider this as a condonement of g**k "culture". (I guess that's "culture" as in "bacteria culture".) Usually, people who write open-sores software aren't g**ks. (G**ks are too busy masturbating, inventing atheist anti-god flames, watching godless Japanese cartoons, and poisoning themselves with caffeine-based narcotics.)

    ...'cause just a little while ago I somehow happened to notice that "," oddly enough, pointed to, the most controversial site on the internet. "How innocently clever," I thought; "the far-seeing editors, aware of the ancor that small-minded people sometimes feel against free and fearless controversy, are preemptively defending themselves against a PR campaign aimed against them, much like how last year the G.W. Bush campaign bought up domain names like ''."

    I even innocently employed a link to in a comment. Naturally I was thinking that if someone happened to click the link, the lucky clicker would be brought here where he could as it were bathe his mind in the cool clean flow of intelligent, troll-free commentary. Certainly I would never have included to link to a vile parody site run by anti-adequacy ideological terrorists.

    Now it appears that the fellow who registered the domain name - whoever he really is, hiding behind the seemingly innocent pseudonyms "Nate Kidd and Peter Fide," I don't suppose we'll never know, even when captured the fiends invariably refuse to confess - this person, at one time apparently a True Friend of Freedom and a committed ally of all we hold dear, has somehow been subverted and convinced to aim his domain name against us.

    Or wait. Perhaps he was a "mole," a "sleeper agent," planted long ago like a ticking time bomb to go off and wound us from within at a moment of weakness or inattention. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, you know. No terrorist attack is ever the last, you know. If there is one shadowy conspirator there must be a second, a third, ad infinitum. And the thread trails deeper into the mist; who was the deep-pockets mastermind who put up the $70 for the registration fee? and through what off-shore cutouts were the terror funds routed?

    One thing is for sure. It was no "anonymous reader" who perpetrated this outrage. As awful as it surely is to confront such treason, the fact remains self-evident that it was an insider, someone with power, someone well-connected. The time has come to deeply, exhaustively investigate all the past doings, the criminal connections, of the most highly-placed and widely-respected members of the community: the editors.

    As I myself am a long-time proponent of individual civil liberties, I can anticipate your knee-jerk reactions. Indeed I "feel your pain," sympathize with your immediate outrage. "But that would be an insane and pointless invasion of my personal privacy," any one of you editors might whiningly protest. "Why in God's name should I have to publish notarized copies of all my cancelled checks, long-distance telephone bills, and tax statements, on an independently verified public web page? This is absurd!" Indeed it is but these are absurd times. Everything has changed, you know.

    Editors, come clean; if you have nothing to hide, then you have no need to conceal anything. And conversely.
