Stuff [Jul. 14th, 2010|12:30 pm]

Wow. I'm on BoingBoing...and the front page of Reddit! Now I need a new life goal.

I've finally read through most of the comments here and on other sites. To everyone who said such overwhelmingly nice things about my last post - thank you. To everyone who friended me - thank you. To everyone who totally misunderstood my last post and thought I was denying the Holocaust or something - better luck next time. To everyone who said things like "I really liked that post, it was really funny, except the part about de Gaulle, because DE GAULLE WAS ACTUALLY THE GUY'S REAL NAME!!" I don't understand you and I am moderately terrified by your existence.

Also, protip - using the subject "Stuff" for all your blog entries over several years may seem like a clever time-saving measure, but it looks kind of weird when people start quoting you.

LOL. I liked that post, As you illustrated, truth is much stranger than fiction, or even science fiction.

Be prepared for a stream of new Russian-segment friends: your post was quoted in a bunch of places yesterday. I myself have spent like three hours of work time reading your blog entries, thanks God no one noticed, but it was just impossible to stop.
Okay, in case no one bothered to tell you before, you are awesome.

Thank you! (and I did notice a lot of the people who friended me yesterday have blogs in Cyrillic that I can't even read let alone understand, which makes me feel inferior as the poor monolingual American).

Ha, you should rather quit feeling inferior because of them - now you have friends who can retell any Cyrillic discourse to you if needed:)

I just want to add to the accolades. This is truly inspired and has the makings of a true internet classic. Thanks for sharing your wit, and congratulations!

The real nuisance about using titles like "stuff" is that it is harder to keep track of where things are, and it makes entries less likely to show up high on relevant Google searches. Descriptive titles help alleviate this problem.
