*sigh* It -was- a joke. It was so far fetched I didn't think anyone

available to verify should I at any moment in time thought this -might-

Don't waste your time, it was a joke. I was -trying- to show the
poster how silly his whole idea was so maybe he would think twice and
would investigate before posting.

That's because it is. Again, it was inserted to poke fun.
