REISER4_STATUS_DAMAGED

Geeks Gone Wrong

Seriously, when people tell me that my life and lifestyle are highly complex and unusual, I'm just going to point to Hans Reiser and shrug. I feel securely mundane in my lifestyle by comparison and I'd like to keep it that way.

It really really is worth the 7 page read. This story is more insane than any novel that could be written (because a novel that was as insane would cause a difficulty with suspension of disbelief).

You've got geeks, sado-masochism, adultery, internet brides, multinational corporations, russian mafia, a murder mystery with no body, no weapon, and only small traces of blood, a guy obsessed with teaching 6 year olds the "culture of manhood" with ultra-violent video games, a best friend who has confessed to murdering 8 people, a guy who even in jail defending his claim of innocence can't stop evangelizing the theory behind his computer innovations, claims of therapists creating memories, children stolen to russia, a mother who was at burning man at the time of the crime, last minute car mechanics...

Completely fucking insane.

I wonder if we'll ever know the whole story? How will the trial and ongoing investigation play out? Is Hans innocent? Where is Nina? Are there ANY sane non-suspicious characters in this story?

Read the story. It's more insane than that.
