it took roughly ten years of random seeds to generate this outcome, but someone at work today actually asked me what my slashdot id number was, in the context of a contest where the lowest number wins. In return for this act of curiosity, I obliterated him by roughly 500,000 points. We took the battle onward to the next competitor, perhaps a much more formidable challenge.

We each took our cerimonial combat bows and it was ON! I shot a deadly series of sideways glances bounding off his keyboard as his fingers skillfully dodged them, sliding over to the mouse into a tight grab-squeeze-slide and click, landing a precise hit on the slashdot bookmark, and then with a smooth traversal into the corner of the window to end with a click on his own user id, and the sad realization that he had been defeated this day.

Beaten as he was by a much slimmer margin of 100,000 or so that time, it was a valiant effort. My hat goes off to his next of kin.

(this is based upon a true story)
