You don't know who you're talking to on the net...

'All I did was call him a nerd and he came to kill me'

A US Navy technician who got mad when someone mocked him as a "nerd" over the internet climbed into his car and drove 2100 km from Virginia to Texas to teach the other guy a lesson.

As he made his way toward Texas, Fire Controlman 2nd Class Petty Officer Russell Tavares posted photos online showing the welcome signs at several states' borders, as if to prove to his internet friends that he meant business.

When he finally arrived, Tavares burned the man's trailer down.

Whataworld, I've spent a fortune on petrol travelling south, only for Anne to call me far worse than a nerd. I never know quite what she is calling me......maybe next time I'll loosen the gag a little.

Yes Ellerd we none of us (except those who've met each other) know what we really are (who've you actually met from here?)...fortunately my other half deals with most emails & deletes an awful lot. So with a bit of luck I'm safe.
