Reasons For Internet Anonymity #2,647

This guy.

A Navy man who got mad when someone mocked him as a “nerd” over the Internet climbed into his car and drove 1,300 miles from Virginia to Texas to teach the other guy a lesson. . .

When he finally arrived, Tavares burned the guy’s trailer down.

Now that’s putting the “petty” in “Petty Officer.”

  1. Is it sad that the first things that popped into my head as I read this story were “Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel” and “More Than A Woman”? Hmmm… maybe I need to get some more current pop cultural references.

    (By the way, enjoying the blog, I found you through the Malcontent)

  2. See what happens when we lower our recruiting standards?

    On a more serious note, I recall Bill Maher talking about this phenomenon on his show. Something along the lines of (and I’m paraphrasing here… cause I don’t remember the actual quote):

    “You know, the people in the most macho jobs have the thinnest skin. They can’t take even the slightest criticism without going berserk”

    This does seem to have a kernal of truth to it, doesn’t it?
