Man crosses U.S. to violently settle Internet feud

Who you calling a nerd?

From the Houston Chronicle:

By Angela K. Brown

ELM MOTT, Texas — 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 guess he showed him.

I hate to think what he would have done if the guy had called him a "damn nerd"...
