Evan Schiller’s blog, Conventional Stupidity, shows just what happens to those who really fall through the cracks in the public education system: they end up posting to Internet forums.

was just thinking. [erstwhile Internet celebrity Selekta writes] my sister does -alot- of reading, and spends like $1000 a year on just books alone. most of them she reads once then never looks at again. is there any kind of like…video rental store but for books? would make things alot cheaper, plus once one person has read one the next person can get enjoyment from it etc

Poor punctuation and capitalisation aside—nearly forgivable sins in the forum world—you have to wonder at a person that dumb. Surely, this is a prank.

Either that, or my belief in the mean intelligence of the online community has just taken a head shot.
