OT -> SO:
View The Stack Overflow Conspiracy - don't tell Jeff I'm on to

Judging from the fact that there's been a lot of talk of venture capital being pumped into Stack Overflow lately, something hasn't been sitting well with me at all. Then I got to thinking.

Ever think about Jeff's user ID? It's [1][1]. Seems innocuous, right? Like maybe he was the first user or something? But no, think about it. Jeff could have had any user ID he wanted. He could have had 1337 or 3735928559 or even -4. But those would have been too obvious for most conspiracy theorists. Jeff is a more subtle man than that.

For Jeff is even more devious than two [Wilson Fisks][2]. You see, 1 is the atomic number of [hydrogen][3]. And what is made of hydrogen? Well, a lot of things. So we need to narrow it down some more.

Fiddling with some more numbers, we come to realize that Jeff's name is "Jeff". But that's short for "Jeffry". That means he's missing two letters off of his name. His ID is 1, and he's missing 2 letters. [Deuterium][4] is hydrogen, having an atomic number 1 but an atomic mass of 2.
