Funny trace route.

I wonder how this guy set this up. I'm not tech savvy enough to do this myself, but I assume he's either got dozens of routers pulled into each other, or has a way to fake the jumps.

Tracing route to FIN [216.81.59.173]

All of the address after hop six are at 206.214.251.x, so he's just got the data travelling through routers (not necessarily all physical ones) to, uh, tell a story. Never thought about doing that. Pretty creative. :)

These are all legitimate, by the way. Feel free to do some IP address lookups on 'em:
