Webdriver Torse Indoctrination

I think the whole Webdriver Torso thing is incredibly funny.  And oddly fascinating.

I don’t know what it is, and I don’t really care if it’s a real thing or just some bot doing system checks.  It doesn’t matter.  It’s interesting, and not knowing details makes it all the more fun to think about.  After all, the fun part is the mystery.

I recently told a friend about Webdriver Torso and he didn’t now what I was talking about.  Then I managed to show him a clip and he was as mystified as I am, but only in a “you’re still nuts for being into this” way.  Today I showed my mom, who immediately said “clearly, it’s a code.”  My mom knows nothing about computers and so it’s funny that she went that direction.  

Code or bot, I don’t care.  I just like getting people to look at it and see what they say.
