Revenge of the Nerd

"A Navy man who got mad when someone mocked him as a "nerd" over the Internet climbed into his car and drove 1,300 miles from Virginia to Texas to teach the other guy a lesson. As he made his way toward Texas, Fire Controlman 2nd Class Petty Officer Russell Tavares posted photos online showing the welcome signs at several states' borders, as if to prove to his Internet friends that he meant business. When he finally arrived, Tavares burned the guy's trailer down."

I chuckled at this as I got an image of a CSI episode, where this guy live blogs his way cross country, while his friends submit suggestions for getting revenge on his nemisis. Of course when he arrives in Vegas things go tragically wrong. If this should show up on CBS next fall I want a piece of the residuals.
Full Story.
