Found in my referer logs. Does anybody have any idea what this guy is about, or why someone who would go here would visit me, too? :-) [WARNING: Even adults may not want to look at this page...]

Stile has got to be one of the weirdest people alive. Most likely multiple personalities with the need for attention. I, unfortunately check out his web site from time to time, but for all the crap he puts up, and all the lame stunts he pulls, the routine is old.

I see what da5vid means... first there's talk of prison terms for pornography, then he says "the only way to fight pornography is to post more"...

Like Denzel said in Philadelphia: "Now, explain it to me like I'm a six year old....". I have a very bizarre sense of humor and I just don't get it.

Didn't this site just win a Webby?

Yes. Stile Project won the webby and people's voice award in the wierd catagory. Go figure.

Well, it certainly deserves that. It is the weirdest thing I have ever seen. Keep in mind this is me posting this.

I voted for the trepanning thing in the webby weird category - call it a morbid sense of curiosity but people voluntarily drilling holes in their own skulls was more interesting to me than this. And yes, that link is about people who drill holes in their skulls so if it wigs you out, consider yerself warned.

The Stile Project's been around for a really really long time.

From what I understand, it started off as him just posting some of the weird shit he got sent in emails, and found on other sites. People started sending him more, and it kind of snowballed.

> weird shit he .... found on other sites

Oh dear, you mean this grew out of a prehistoric weblog?!?!?!?

Yeah, probably. Hell, it still looks like a weblog. :-)

Yep, but Stile is, if anything, more of an Everything/Nothing page. "Weird shit" is pretty much the order of the day. The commentary isn't really commentary so much as entertaining blather.

Not that I have anything against it, I just don't find it interesting on a daily basis. Another dwarf-having-sex-with-a-chair AVI? Yawn.

So maybe we are all reaching the bottom of the shock bucket. This strip-mining of the lowest common denominator is not that amazing. As one man once saw further because he stood on the shoulders of giants another might for a different purpose. So if Dan's findings:

"Here's a horrible thought: You know how dumb the average person is? Well, half the human race is even dumber than that..."
--- the .sig of Jean-Marc Libs in the Scary Devil Monastery

It's actually worse than that. The mean IQ is greater than both the median and the mode.
--- Paul Martin in the Scary Devil Monastery

...are correct then this downward spiral is natural and necessary to stir the masses to spend. Perhaps it's a matter of a degree of grey matter to offend?
