RMS has girlfriend shock

Well, if not shock it certainly gave me a funny turn thinking about it.

Ok, this sounds pretty sad:

>> Visiting Bolivia provided an opportunity for me to spend a week with Tania. I had better explain that Tania isn't just my friend; she's my sweetheart. Since she lives in Colombia, it isn't easy for us to spend time together.

It sounds on the surface like RMS had been hitting those "find a Latin American cutie" websites and met someone who could get beyond the GNU marriage license agreement he proposed. :-)

And he visited Lake Titicaca, subject of numerous Beavis & Butthead "Cornholio" diatribes. "Lake Titi-caca. Titi-caca.. Titi-caca..." Sorry, that's all I can think when I read that.

How coarse and juvenile of me...

Lives in Columbia? Doesn't get to see her much? Sounds like chat room love to me.

Napolean, you're just jealous because I've been chatting on-line with babes all day.

Does he share her, I wonder.

Anyhow - BoredBystander, there is a lake in Germany (I think, or maybe it is Austria) called Titi See ("See" is the German word for "lake"). Try planning a visit and keeping a straight face when you tell your nearest and dearest your plans.

Exactly, does he share her. I was wondering the same thing.
