Fun with the Internet

Here's a cool trick which you can do without even leaving the comfort of the web browser you're using to read this:

  1. Open a new window. Don't close this one or you won't be able to read the next step, moron
  2. Point this shiny new window toward the mother of all search engines,
  3. Put in my name, "Jeff Glasse"
  4. Near the top of the search returns list you will find, rather unsurprisingly, this site. Click the "similar pages" link to find websites which are, presumably, a lot like this one.

If you look halfway down the page, you'll find a link to the Amazon sale page for The Complete Idiot's Guide to Nazi Germany. Yes, you read right, a guide to Nazi Germany for complete idiots. Partial idiots, Republicans and brains in jars need not apply.

I'm not going to argue for or against the wisdom of teaching stupid people Nazi philosophy, or Amazon's dubious profiteering in said enterprise. I'm actually just impressed that Google was able to make the connection between me, morons, and German dictators with a penchant for genocide.

I'm planning on demanding royalties.
