Adam Scott And Jon Hamm Star In The “Greatest Event In Television History.”

* Adrian Chen outs Reddit super-creep Violentacrez.

When I called Brutsch that Wednesday afternoon and told him I knew who he was, I was a little taken aback by how calm he remained during our intense but civil hour-long conversation. I had figured that a man whose hobby was saying horrible shit just to screw with people online would rise to some new horrible level when conditions on the ground actually called for it. Instead he pleaded with me in an affectless monotone not to reveal his name.

“My wife is disabled. I got a home and a mortgage, and if this hits the fan, I believe this will affect negatively on my employment,” he said. “I do my job, go home watch TV, and go on the internet. I just like riling people up in my spare time.”

* 100-pound, 20,000-LEGO brick Batcave took 800 hours to build.


* Anonymous v. Wikileaks. Whoever wins, we lose…
