I thought I'd share this, in case anyone might read my journal. I found it neat enough to share. =)
Anyways, I live in a small town in Kansas, USA called Haysville. It's about two miles south of Wichita, and has roughly ten thousand people. I would think it's about as stereotypically Kansas as you can get. Flat as hell, surrounded by wheat and corn fields, and filled with idiots. We have a major Independance Day celebration each year, with the entire town being decked out in red, white, and blue. In October we have the Octoberfest, where the town hires some fscking evangelical Christian artists to play on Saturday Night, paid for with the income from speeding tickets. We got eleven churches, two liquor stores, two diners, and a shitload of speeding cameras used by Nazi cops who do nothing but write tickets and harass the local teenagers.
Yes, Haysville is your small town out in the middle of nowhere. Born and raised here, by damn.
So I went to the store the other day to pick up some random junk food, when I walked by the magazine rack on my way to pick up toilet paper. And what did I spy standing proudly amongst Better Homes and Gardens and Sixteen? Why, Linux World, of course. In BIG BOLD WHITE LETTERS AGAINST A BLACK BACKGROUND that screamed LINUX to all the soccer moms buying diapers for their kids.
I remember the last time I visited the Linux user count website there were two people here in Haysville who used Linux. Me, and some other guy who I have never heard of before.
We're invading small town Kansas, baby!
