Yet another "Internet Verb" is created

Ever wonder what the first 10,000 people who saw the "Star Wars Kid" video felt like? Want to know what it was like to read the comments from "you know who" over at PW in real time while she was destroying her own life and defining the first ever "internet verb"? Enjoy watching train wrecks in progress?

Well, then you might want to go over and give this a look-see. It's got it all: Women who leave out vital facts but still consider themselves to be "mostly truthful", guys who think with their reproductive organs, and bystanders who mostly just sit there chanting "Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!" I feel bad for the girl, but since she ...
A.) started the whole thing on her own with a flame post,
B.) did it in a public place where anyone with computer access can find it,
...I'm willing to link it to teach all of you a lesson about unintended consequences. Because I love you all, and I'm a teacher. Not like a REAL teacher of useful facts, but I'm willing to help teach a lesson if there's no sacrifice on my part.

Read the whole thread carefully, there's all sorts of ironic "easter eggs" hidden in there.

H/T to "Read This Now" in the "Sea Kittens" thread comments.

More [ace]: I saw this and didn't know how to handle it; I'm glad Russ did.

The thing is, yes, I feel bad for her. But honestly, the Internet is not really the place to seek sympathy while revealing personal, embarrassing details about yourself.

Especially not here, when you're complaining about the triviality that you liked someone much more than he liked you, and the happens-every-day thing that a guy kinda-sorta played you on that to get laid. And you're sorta saying you're fat to a Studman69 "I would not hit that" cohort, which is never especially likely to end well.

She's very naive. Too naive to know she's naive, and too naive to realize that the smart-ass know-it-alls of the internet are going to have her for lunch.

The internet is the place to get discount cigarettes, Mexican knock-off viagra, and sex. Not sympathy from perfect strangers.

Ever see me declaring in a post "I'm a chronic premature ejaculator, and I want reassurance that that's okay"? Yeah. There's a reason you haven't seen that.

The liberals would eat me alive.

The liberals? Shit. You guys would do worse, and you kinda like me.
