Our Fears Have Been Confirmed

My brother is a nutcase. For one thing, he has a yahoo.co.uk email address. He was signing up for a Yahoo!(tm) email as a spammable catch-all internet addy, and sees the “Preferred content:” popup menu on the signup page. “Oo, what’s that do?” The little help item proclaims:

…Note: If you change this setting, you may recieve a country-specific Yahoo! email address instead of one that ends in @yahoo.com.

“Coooool!” And whaddaya know, it worked.

Now he’s just made himself a Facebook profile, and he’s got himself in as part of the network of a Highschool that he “technically” has taken one class at. With his yahoo.co.uk email address.

I give up, I just feel so way-terribly normal right now.
