If this is true I submit it as reasons 3,245 thru 46,538 that humanity is fucked.  Who would do such a thing?  All you people who went ballistic over James Frey embellishing a few stories in the book A Million Little Pieces better have a field day on this guy’s ass: http://thechive.com/2012/10/15/the-story-of-dave-on-wheels-was-an-elaborate-horrible-deceit-7-photos/

You know what, I don’t even feel bad right now for getting pulled in (as noted in my previous post I’m not one to normally fall for these online sypathy stories) but seriously?  Who does this?  What would your mental state need to be in order to pose as a handicapped kid online to appease your psyche?  Saying you didn’t do it for the fame is b.s. because anytime you’re posting in a public forum (i.e. Twitter) you are consciously doing so in some small way seeking to have your voice heard.  This guy created a blog, a virtual family with their own social media outlets, coordinated events between Twitter accounts (i.e. one account is waiting to be picked up while the other account appologizes for running late), we’re talking some deep seeded issues here.  I need to stew on this a bit but Jesus Christ, what kind of world are we living in?

The real loser here is going to be the internet.  This is going to set the chain letter/email industry back 35 years.  Now I’m going to have to think twice before sending money to the African Prince who keeps emailing my Grandma.
