Google is a bunch of jerks
I'm not proud of a lot of things I've done. Fortunately for you, many of the mistakes I've made will be preserved forever on the internet, thanks to Google.

Scroll down a bit, and you'll find a letter to the editor. Yes, I wrote a fan letter to Usagi Youjimo in 1992. 1992! I hadn't even heard of the internet then. What the hell are those people doing putting old letters to the editor on their site. They didn't even buy the domain until 1997. They went to the trouble of posting an inane letter from a fifteen year old, five years after it was written, and now it is indelibly attached to my name.
The other thing google has taught me is apparently there's some kid named Will Carlough in the midwest that skis a lot.
That doesn't bother that much, I guess.
There's also these two sites:
Which (don't click on those links, by the way) I think are just there to try to install spyware on your machine, but somehow their strategy involves pairing my name with such popular search terms as "bodybuilding chicks", "DOG HOROSCOPES", and "Basilian Fathers".
Now if I ever relesase my dog horoscopes to the public or write a letter to the editor of Bodybuilding Chicks Monthly, people are going to end up very confused.
