    I must admit I love reading those things. I don't know what it is about them but I like seeing what sorta new twist they put on the same old story.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Re: It Finally Happened To Me....

    I've gotten a bunch of scam attempts from things I've sold on Ebay. When I was selling my Playstation 2 I got a message from someone saying they wanted to buy it for their nephew studying in Ethiopia (not sure what he was studying) and said they would give me $500 and $100 for shipping. The bid was at $85 at the time so it made sense for them to offer me $500. So I made up a bunch of information and said my name was Rand Mcnally for 3 weeks I got messages asking "Rand, have you sent the package yet? I sent your money."
