I'm proud to present to you all two examples of pure internet epicness. Though I'm worried that these two examples taking place in such a short period of time might ruin the internet for the rest of my life.

First up we have a thread from an NSX (car) forum. The original poster turns out to be advertising for some online poker type site. Well unfortunately for him some people did some digging and found his personal info including his name, address and...his sex offender page.

You can find the thread here


Next up, we've got a situation that involves a cheating girlfriend. A member on a body building forum suspected his girlfriend of cheating. He apparently found proof, posted some pics, posted her myspace, posted her full name and phone number, etc. She was recieving hundreds of calls and text messages from all over the world. Family started threatening legal action, etc. Mods on the forum closed the thread, but other mods kept opening it up due to it's leet status. Eventually it was closed for good and deleted. They even had to make stickies saying not to request the thread again or be banned. Fortunately for us, some cliffnotes were made.
In the 36 hours that the original thread lasted there were 108 pages, 3200 replies, and over 200k views. That is the definition of epic.

Cliffnotes can be found here (Possibly NSFW)

There was a youtube video made about the post found Here. (Possibly NSFW)

I <3 the internet.

Is that second link not safe for work? I read to the point that said thong pics were going to be posted and I closed it. I don't need IT on my ass.

I would say that it might classify as NSFW, if you read the whole thing.

IT doesn't know if you've read the whole thing... They just know what is on the entire page.

Ah yes, both the second link and the youtube vid might be NSFW.
Appologies, I was quite sloshed when I posted that and completely forgot the warning.

More Epicness!

Some guy who has a blog, posted that his house was broken into and the thieves stole his TV, and old Macbook (with the wrong powercord), and his Halo edition Xbox360. He called the cops but figured they wouldn't do much for him and decided to do some looking around himself. First thing he did was call a local pawn shop. Read about it Here

Then a link to his blog and what happened was posted on Digg and was instantly one of the top stories with a couple thousand 'diggs'. People start digging around on their own, finding this kids personal information and plastering it all over the internet. Updates Here


Some cliffnotes of the whole thing can be found here

Not epic in a good way, but this has been happening.

Just one more reason for conceal carry laws.

Speaking of which, anyone know the legality of shooting someone who you see stealing your stuff? Say the guys he stopped in the road on the way to his house?

Granted state laws are all widely different....I doubt it'd be legal. A lot of gun laws are so vague it isn't even funny, which tends to fuck most lawful owners/users over.

State laws are quite varied. And all state laws are still subject to federal law. I believe for the most part the only time lethal force is allowed by private citizens is through immediate self defense of life, or if the trespasser enters your personal dwelling(some states require you to attempt escape only, if possible). My problem with laws that prevent you from defending your home and belongings is simple: according to the legal definition of trespass - by illegally entering someone else's property, for whatever purpose, you are putting yourself in harm's way, explicitly accepting whatever consequences befall you. Despite this, it is universally illegal to trap your home.

I agree, in Connecticut, the law states you are legally allowed to use deadly force in the case of "Forceable entry into ones home". However you have to bring interpretation into it.....which is common. If someone climbs into an open window (compared to kicking in my door, because an open window is apparently invitational entry), that isn't forceable entry now is it? Poof.....according to the law I'm no longer legally allowed to shoot the fucker and I go to jail for murder. But thats for another thread (start one).

It's generally illegal to kill someone to prevent the loss of property. It's legal in some places, but it's a messed up thing to do no matter where you are. We don't assign the death penalty for property crimes because we don't believe it warrants that, and it doesn't warrant it when it's happening either.

I don't believe it is anywhere. You have to feel as if your life is being threatened before you can kill someone, which is why many states require that you evacuate. Some states just consider trespass on living space(not simply owned property) a reasonable threat. I believe in North Carolina it is only legal to shoot someone if they are about to shoot you first(gun raised with the provable intent to fire). Which means you have to give them the chance. This is completely dumb.
