File this one under “Just when you think you’ve seen it all!”

I just got this email today… I swear!  It said this:


It has reached the office of the Federal Govt of Nigeria that you were scammed before so the Govt has decided to compensate you with the sum of $70,000.00, Contact Barrister Etters and pay a fee of just $80 for funds release . Send email to *****@***********

Now everyone has HEARD about the Nigerian email scams, right?  RIGHT?!?!?  Yeah, I’m sure there is at least one or two innocently naive grandparents or otherwise NOT internet savvy folks that have actually sent money to such ridiculous scams but are the numbers that high that the scammers feel they can be even more profitable by pretending to compensate the victims in a new scam?  These guys should really find another line of “work”.

A (mostly) fictional story: personal.jpg

Hey, first I hung all our pretty lights from the eves of our house to get in the Holiday spirit. It started out good and they were going up like I was a professional!

Then it started snowing. That wasn’t so bad, kind of festive and all, you know what I mean?

Then it started snowing really HARD! I only had a couple of 30′ strands left to put up so I kept on going. A cat on the roof supervising my progress managed to knock a big bunch of fresh, %$#@ icy cold snow right down on top of my head and most of it went down the front and back of my shirt, of course.

$#% cat.

Think you know something about electronic music? Think you know the history of “Rave” and “Techno”?! Not like Ishkur knows it! Ok, he even says himself that the purpose of the project is to entertain first and be informative last. (more…)
