Jimbo's eating where I ate breakfast on February 10th (just a couple of weeks ago).

Jimbo's having dessert where my wife and I had dessert two years ago with the Associate Pastor of our church, rest his soul.

Jimbo's having fun where my bride and I set sail with guests for our wedding at sea in January 2000.

Clearly, he's just doing this to make me fear for my life, right?!

Are you trying to be ultra creepy? Or is this some inside joke I'm missing?

I think the smiley face was meant to imply the whole thing was just a joke. I'm hoping so.

Yeah, I saw that too, but it's a fine line.

(Edit: And honestly, when in the history of modern civilization did it become the norm for grown ups to communicate via crudely drawn ridiculous small pictures of yellow circles worthy of a 13 year old high school girl's notebook, rather than the way it's been done for millennia - by swearing and cussing at each other??? This world is going to hell and I blame the intranets.)

I'm simply posting info that is all true, but just coincidental to me, personally. Therefore, I found it humorous. Jimbo is apparently touring Key West, which is a lovely thing for him to do. He's the one posting to the world his exact whereabouts and whenabouts, and that's also a lovely thing for him to do, because his life and safety are not in any danger. It's a great town. I go there just about every year, and I did get married about 2 miles off shore there.

How about everyone settle down with the "creepy" accusations, and just appreciate a fascinating coincidence when one arises?

Except ... it's NOT fascinating to anybody but you ...

That is very interesting. I had not realised that he had been buried. So where was he in fact buried? And how has he managed to continue his unique contributions here? Was he buried with a laptop, or has he turned into a zombie?

Perhaps you could explain to us just how st...er, tracking...Jimbo's vacation itinerary relates to the Wikipedia?

I know! How funny was that?

But that wasn't in the Keys, actually. Farther up.

I could explain it, but you would surely dismiss the explanation, so should I really bother?

Yes, you should. No doubt many people here are curious and would like an explanation of the relevance of all this, because I for one have not yet grasped it. There are certainly those here who have made an accurate assessment of your true worth and contributions to this site. Please do not be put off.

Why on earth is he doing that? Does he really see himself as a celebrity who everyone wants to know what he is doing 24/7? wtf.gif blink.gif

To be fair, he's been doing this for ages. He believes in this stuff. He is, after all, a celebrity parent.

Remember that he doesn't really do anything aside from pontificate so it is important to keep up the image of being important, though it isn't really a good idea to believe your own propaganda.

I blame Twitter. It's not like Jimbo is the only person who does this, and he didn't create Twitter in order to do this. Not saying it's something I would do, but to each their own, I suppose.

Note he Twittered seeing going to No 10. That is good enough reason to be extremely concerned that a man with such a dubious hold on ethics is apparently in a position to influence British policitians.

I've just written to the Leveson Inquiry suggesting that they are leaving a big hole in their investigation into media ethics if they are ignoring Wikipedia and specifically suggesting they need to call Jimmy Wales.
