Proverbs for Postmodern Paranoids, Part 1

If you think they might be hiding something from you, it’s entirely possible that they are.

For those unfamiliar with the robots.txt function, this file keeps all web-robots, such as those employed by search engines, from crawling through the listed directories. The interesting question, for me, is whether I’m more paranoid about what they don’t want me to know, or they’re more paranoid about making sure I don’t know it.

  1. Upon running my eyes over the robots.txt link, my first thought was, Wow, who knew that the second-most-popular sport at the White House was T-ball?

  2. Oh, yes. I’ll admit to being darned curious about what’s contained in these directories:

    /kids/teeball/iraq

    /kids/teeball/text

    /kids/teeball2/iraq

    /kids/teeball2/text

    /kids/teeball2003/images/iraq

    /kids/teeball2003/images/text

    /kids/teeball2003/iraq

    /kids/teeball2003/text

    /kids/teeball3/iraq

    /kids/teeball3/text

    What exactly is the relationship between teeball and Iraq? Are we introducing democracy in the region via a hierarchized series of competitive youth sports?
