After adding the MediaWiki to this site, I took a break from a crushing workload, and surfed Google to see how much of the Wiki and this site had been indexed. The answer, of course, was “all of it” (as Admiral Poindexter answered to the question as to what information the Government’s “Total Information Awareness” program would collect). Of course, along with entries I would have expected were some surprises.
I came across an image (I suspect adapted from the image above) with the filename “wa2iac.png” on a site called TinyPic. Click on the link to see the actual image. I don’t care to repeat it here and get dissed by Google (yes.. chilling effect!).
Now, I mused, I am a lover, and a fool for certain types of women (who are, perhaps fools for me – but it’s all good). As my musing continued, I wondered who might have posted this, and why they had named it by my callsign. I don’t believe I’ve ever killed love (metaphorically, or otherwise). There are aspects of this art that I could take as clues. Strong clues. But not that fit, really.
As the band “Orleans” observed in a song I like: “So when you love, take it easy, cause shortcuts are a waste of time… Every breath has it’s meaning, blowing it out an taking it in… So take care what you do, ’cause it all comes back again.” I’ve always tried to live love so if it does come back again, it will be OK. Alright, so it just happened to be playing on the Internet radio I’m listening to as I write this. I still like it.
So it’s a mystery. I’m not crazy about mysteries unless they make me stop and think, because I like things that make me stop and think. Of course, any additional clues would be appreciated…
And then, there’s the matter of the placement of that arrow…
I have discovered one possible clue of who the perpetrator might be. In what I suspect to be the “source” image (above), the arrow is in the butt. In the image this article references, which contains explicit language (and so is not shown here; click on the link to see it), the arrow is in the back. The creator of the image had to have enough image editing skills to change the image in that way. And the mind that would come up with and execute the plan… well, there’s a pretty good hint. Still on the trail, but perhaps the game is a foot.
Some time ago, I spoke with the chief suspect from the previous update. Either well played, or the suspect is not a suspect. The case remains open.
