so...last night my parents called me at lab. they had just finished a
lovely conversation with a secret service agent. he read them part of what
i wrote and they were not amused. oh well. i was really freaking out about
it while talking to them. in any event, the guy asked them all sorts of
questions about me. most of them seemed to be to find out how close we
are. like, they asked if i had any speeding tickets. the guy already knew
my whole life story but it seems they wanted to know how much i tell my
parents about my life and therefor how close we are...nifty. this whole
thing really blows.

uh, geee, i hope i don't turn into John Allison. jeezus! NO! heh heh.
ciao, etc.

"Huh? 'Pike'? You didn't say 'Pike,' did you? I'm sorry, Agent Coldballs,
I must have misheard you."

"Yes, Mr. Finerty. 'Pike.'"

"THAT SON OF A BITCH! Listen to this. Listen to this, Maureen. Listen
to what our son wrote. 'PIKE!' My god. My god. Agent Coldballs, I'm
very sorry, I'm afraid I'm going to have to call you back. My wife is
extremely upset. Do you mind?"

"Certainly not, Mr. Finerty. Goodbye."

"OH... oh, Jack. Oh my god. Oh no. And... my god, and we tried so hard.
To teach him caring... respect... love... for modern firearms. And now!
Oh, lord, if it could only have been a Mannlicher-Carcano."

heh. wow. just think, i mean short of *cj* or that one guy who has like
67.3% of his family on the net, it's safe to say very few people here
write for an audience that would include their parents.

I'm so sure. If someone, secret service or otherwise, would read my posts
to my parents, they'd probly not be terribly violent, but they'd probly not
be amused, either, and they'd probly bring it up at some point in the
future. You know, "Mom, Dad, I just found out i need experimental surgery
as the only chance for life past next week. Can you loan me some cash?"
"AFTER WHAT YOU WROTE ON THE NET ABOUT US? ARE YOU KIDDING?"

My parents just *don't get it.*

gosh. you couldn't be referring to me, could you?
actually, i've found both in small press publications and on-line forums
that people progress through the stages of: quietly lurking, to see what
goes on; glomming onto the loud groups, acting goofy and mimicking catch
phrases; reverting to a more subdued, self-confessional stage during
which more personal details will be shed than anybody could hope to hear;
finally, a sense of balance and moderation in which the distinction
between humor, biography, and masturbation is understood. of course,
since that's a broad description, it doesn't describe all cases [*]
and the time lapse through each level varies by person. (needless to
remark that some people get stuck before fully developing).

so, mark, i hope you haven't been posting assassination plans on
the .net. not that i care for your sake; i just don't want the SS,
er, secret service bothering me.

Ah, yes, the old "pole arms vs. shoulder arms" debate.
