    come on pony stop being coy

    hit us with the dangling meat of this story

    so once upon a time, there was an omegle thread in SE++

    omegle is like chatroulette except without the video component

    just randomly pairs you up with an anonymous stranger for chatting

    people were trollin' it, and posting logs in the thread here

    i made a false murder confession of a name i pulled from a random name generator

    all "mwahahaha i killed this person and even if you go to the cops you will never find me but YOU KNOW" etc.

    turns out, that random name is not only a real person but an attorney in the United States who husband works for the DoJ

    and either her or someone she knows googled her name and due to this site's freaky-weird google priority, my post with my falsified murder confession totally popped on the first page of results

    presumably she used her husband's clout to get the FBI and the RCMP involved and I had to sort it all out and explain

    fortunately, the RCMP are reasonable chaps and understood the whole thing and after showing up at my house for an explanation, shrugged and left

    that was years ago, ain't nothin' came of it

    Have you ever seen what you put your dick into? It's basically a car wash in there full of blood and mucous except at the end is a fucking sand worm.

    And it's still cleaner than the inside of your own mouth.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Damn, my dad dying is really making me understand why I love my family, and hate my extended family.

    My mom told my sister and I that she doesn't want to do a wake or a funeral, just a party at some point when we're a bit less distraught and can properly celebrate how great my dad was. Which, jesus yes. I am so happy we aren't suddenly pretending to give a shit about having some vaguely religious involvement because we've seen it on TV.

    My extended family, on the other hand, are asking us why we don't let my father's asshole of a brother come see us. Because obviously it isn't enough that we, the grieving, find him abhorrent. No, my dad dying is in no way a license for me to request any modification to your behavior no sir. God damn. And for real he was in the house for an hour wednesday, and in five minutes he mentioned how much he loved Big Bang Theory, made fun of comic collecting for being stupid, made a few racist comments about the Indian guy on the show and made sure to say how he didn't want any of that fucking GREEK food. Because he's somehow racist against Greek people like he's from the 20's. Fuck.

    Also! My idiot fucking cousin broke down crying on monday as we were waiting for news from the hospital and trying to eat... because her stomach hurt and just looking at food was REALLY HARD okay? I wanted to remove her intestines and strangle her with them. If I'm not crying, you don't get to cry. Particularly not about your ridiculous psychosomatic eating problems you fucking child.

    Also thank god most of my friends are atheists. No one has told me god has a plan yet.

    I fucking hated this, or the "You're the man of the family now boy TIME TO STEP UP". I mean, it's true, but jesus just fucking give me time to grieve first

    i applied for a different job with this agency months ago, which isn't the one i applied for yesterday and am interviewing for tuesday

    but apparently in applying they still did some background checking and there's some "issues we need to discuss" regarding things they found out

    can't be anything too serious or disqualifying or they'd not have bothered calling me at all

    but it will be interesting to see what dirt they've dug up on me

    We see you're active on an internet forum...

    Oh god, having flashbacks

    Although I don't think I've said anything I'd really want covered up I was pretty worried when I was getting my SSBI done. I was a lot more worried that someone I worked with or an old friend would say something dumb or like, be high when the investigator showed up.

    Well I'm at work now but if multiplayer works I will be up for that once I understand how the game works. Right now I have a governor doing everything so shit just happens by itself and it's really confusing. I have to learn how to do it myself.

    You could make a third account and have both forward to it, and then you won't get duplicate emails.

    alright so

    here's the story of what happened:
    okay so, SE++ had an Omegle chatlog thread

    Omegle's like chat roulette minus the video and audio, it's you + random stranger paired anonymously to chat

    so people were using it for all kinds of trolling and gags

    i did the whole "fake murder confession" thing, where i went on, said i murdered so-and-so and this was how and when, and they'll never catch me and you'll know and they'll never believe you, ho ho ho ho!

    so to make the joke work i chose a random name off a website

    then i post a log of that conversation on here

    unbeknownst to me at the time, this so happened to also be the name of a lawyer with ties to the DoJ and the republican party. she found out about this somehow, presumably through googling her own name (as google places an absurdly high priority on this forum) and freaked out.

    she decided to swing her weight around and get the FBI involved, claiming this is a death threat (legally speaking, it isn't), which led to the DoJ badgering Tube, getting all my posts, tracking me down, finding out I'm Canadian, contacting the RCMP, and the RCMP showing up at my door.

    the RCMP heard me out, listened to me explain the situation, got pretty angry that they came all that way over stupid bullshit, and were like "alright, listen, just like... write her a letter, explaining what happened and that you're sorry if you upset her or whatever"

    so, i wrote a carefully worded letter doing just that, gave that to them, and that was the end of it

    part of me hopes the DoJ turned on her and gave her shit for wasting everyone's time

    The only issue there ever really is with GAF is when they disable avatars during E3

    My understanding is that vbulletin doesn't scale very well, and the other organizations deal with it just by piling more hardware on, which is pretty expensive, and is the reason why NeoGAF and SA have interstitial ads.
