True Fact

I still don't give the tiniest infinitesimal fuck about Lance Armstrong, who, frankly, seems like a colossal d-bag. SORRY, OPRAH! Good luck with your big garbage confessional show, though!

I remember reading this comment thread at the New York Times, right after Armstrong was banned for doping and stripped of his titles, when he was continuing to unilaterally deny that he'd ever cheated. And most of the commenters were pretty sure he was full of shit, but then there were his defenders. So passionate, and so invested in his honesty. They really believed him.

I don't give a fuck about Armstrong, but I feel bad for them.
