Darwin Award Contender

Juggling Freak has several online communities that he frequents, from juggling forums to theme park employee forums. One of the ones he spends a lot of time in is a bodybuilding forum, and they recently had a big brouhaha that brought to mind the fact that a lot of its denizens have gigantic muscles to make up for their lack of intelligence. As if -- "well, I'm not SMART, so I might as well be buff!"

Now, before anyone (especially Juggling Freak) thinks I'm putting down body builders, or people who like discussing body building, let me assure you that I am not. I'm just pointing out that there's a reason that there is a stereotype of some jocks as beautiful, but rather empty-headed.

It seems that one of the forum members decided that he would post an off-topic rant about how he wanted to kill the president. Dude, SO not a good idea. When people pointed out to this pillar of the community that he *must* have been joking - ha ha ha - because it's really not cool to threaten the president, the idiot responds that no, he's SERIOUS. He even tried to get other people to join in, and named a day, place, and time for everyone to gather in order to "go after" the president. Other forum members tried to tell him that this was not a good idea, but MusclesForBrains continued on.

Needless to say, a day or so later, the forum owner came forward with a letter he'd gotten from the Secret Service where they'd requested his name, records, and all of his information. Dude better get his affairs in order real soon, because I think he's about to take a long vacation, courtesy of the United States Correctional System. Not white-collar, country club prison, but *federal*, being-sodomized-by-a-guy-named-Crusher kind of prison.

The owner of the forum told the other members that while it is not legal to threaten the president, it is not only legal, but *encouraged* to type the phrase "owned!" to this gentleman under this discussion topic.

Steroids do strange things to people's brain. Maybe turning part of it to muscle, the dumbass.
