It was a hoax…

Remember the other day when I got bent out of shape over that spoiled rich kid?

It was all a hoax:

I have been feeling a little guilty about causing so many people out there to have nightmares, depression and sickness from my little joke. The reaction of people word wide has blown me away. I never intended for such a thing to happen.

My in box went from 1% to 100% in 2 days (1300 messages). So many people were pointing out what a stupid thing to do, so many people were telling me of feeling sick, some even said they cried. I felt bad for those people. It was amusing to read things like “I should be hung by my testicles and lit on fire” or the constant reference to “Taking a Porsche and replacing the engine with a KIAs”. Most people cried out in horror and carefully pointed out the error of doing such a silly thing.

I am sure you are wondering why this all took place.

Are the pictures real? Yes.
Is it my own G5 case that has been cut and hacked? Yes.
Did I give away two G5 2GHz processors (IBM PC 970)? No!
So what happened?

I got a free G5 shell from a buddy of mine and pulled a prank on a Mac loving friend. He got so upset. I wrote up a little story, my imagination and warped sense of humor kicked in. I sent it to OC.com just to see the reaction. I honestly didn’t think it was going to be posted. I cannot believe how fast or how far it has spread on the internet. There are an amazing number of people who are emotionally attached to inanimate objects such as computers. Mac fans seem to be much worse that I ever expected. The G5 is amazing, I would never dream of really doing that πŸ˜‰

  5. What if Apple was really a 1984-esque organization (some would argue that has already been established) and all those people with iPods in their ears were being fed subliminal messages along with their favorite MP3s; and one day, very soon, the subliminal messages congeal in everyone’s brain at once and all the iPod wearers turn into PodPeople and carry out Apple’s evil master plan and they take over the rest of us?
