Nerd Takes Trolling Seriously, Burns Attacker’s Trailer Down

Apparently no one ever taught the “sticks and stones” rhyme to Navy Fire Controlman 2nd Class Petty Officer Russell Tavares before. Upon being called a “nerd” in an online trollfight, the irate 27-year-old jumped into his car and travelled 1,300 miles to burn his name-caller’s trailer down. He has since been sentenced to seven years in prison for arson. [Boing Boing]
