    Interesting case of a blogger's internet identity not being the same as their real identity:

    If it turns out he sells and fixes espresso machines, I'm never reading anything on the Internet again.

    If I was making shit up about myself, I'd have a much more fascinating career.

    Hell, my previous careers were more interesting.

    Meanwhile, there's one brokenhearted French Canadian woman out there:

    Some lesbians are just women trapped in a man's body.

    My next career as a lesbian blogger is getting crowded, dammit.

    Odds that Sandra is also a man? 85%?

    What's depressing is reading all of these bylined stories on bloggers and social media trends and have not one person actually interviewed by a reporter. When the Alice Pyne thing hit (the girl with cancer who wrote a bucket list that included trending on Twitter), I didn't see one story for several days where a reporter spoke with her or her family. Has she spoken with the media at all?

    I never understood why people spend this amount of time making up stuff.

    A few white lies here and there? Most of us have probably told them, or at least done some level of embellishing. But to make up an entire persona and cultivate it for weeks/months/years? Nuts, man.

    And we didn't let them off their hook!
