Mr. Roberts made sure the two young men were on the elevator and well out of earshot.

“Who were those two dissolute young men again?”

“Oh Dick that’s your cousin Richard. The other one’s named Patch. Anthony I think if I remember right.”

“Oh yes yes yes I know Richard of course. I just mean to say I hardly recognise him. And I daresay I wouldn’t want them encouraging Gloria in her already straying ways if I thought it’d do a damned bit of good.”

“Why won’t you let her be.”

“I would if I thought she could pull herself out of it. But she’s become so distant and unattainable lately. I find it highly annoying.”

Well I expect those two were only here to see Gloria so I imagine we’ll see them again. They dson’t give up so easy ewhen they start nosing around after her.”

“No no no no they don’t my dear. But you know all her gallavanting leaves more time for us,” winked Mr. Roberts.

“True true my boo boo,” winked Mrs. Roberts back.

And they very composedly went hand in hand back into the back bedroom far far away from the door.

Week 8: Jacksonville Jaguars (-3)

In a week ladened with huge lines, I’m going to pick a game that has a better chance of covering the spread. Jacksonville has been impressive this season and has done well on the road thus far. The Jags only loss on the road this season came to the undefeated Colts. The Rams are hurting — Bulger, Holt, and Bruce look to be sidelined for the game, which means the Jags D should be able to take advantage an inexperienced offense. Byron Leftwich and the gang should be able to light it up and the Jacksonville defensive squad ought to keep the Rams scoring to a minimum. If this game was in Jacksonville, the line would be at least 8.5. Good luck this week!!

Hollywood Smooth is 4-1 so far this season.

I would demand new business conditions but that would mean talking to people. My fundamental complaint is that mass markets are unfair to people who hate people. The only way for me to turn my great ideas into money-making is to have them publicised and then loved by lots of people.

But I don’t want that.

I want to have great ideas, execute them and have them make me money. But I don’t want people to have to like them. I don’t want people to have to find them brilliant. That’s why I introduce to you Web 3.0.

In Web 3.0 all you have to do is post something on the web, anything, and it will generate cash flow. I am looking for business capital to get this idea rolling.

In Web 3.0 misanthropes rule. You don’t have to network. You don’t have to discuss. You don’t have to have ties to some self-indulgent pretentious ‘community’ or other. You are your community. And that’s all you need. And all others will just leave you alone thank you very much.

Web 3.0 will be built on cross-platofrm isolated synergie. It will use the power of millions of antisocial individuals to create a new economy of separation. Unlike the wisdom of the crowds, the driver of this economy will not be mass movement but leveraged isolationism. Technology will assume the interactions that we have heretofore left in the hands of humanity. Instead each content creator publishes and Web 3.0 makes sure the content is distributed and compensated for.

At Misantech we’re looking for funding. Get in on the ground floor of the next big trend to hit the Net. Web 3.0 is here now in bedrooms across the world. Join it.
