What the f**k?! I don't know what's happened here but this is totally retarded. This was a good natured but completely dumb and unfunny attempt on my part to tease chroot. It wasn't in anyway meant to insult or make fun of him. I don't know if he goes to stanford and I really don't care, though based on his posts, I wouldn't be surprised if he did.
