As this story points out, Windows is a horrible, horrible magnet for scams like this, and it's all too easy for scammers to take control over your machine. Plus, I generally find that Windows is more-or-less unusable. My wife and kid both have Macs, and my kid has a Windows laptop that our school district gives all the students. The students are trained on how to use Windows, and my daughter can't understand why "Windows makes it so hard to do stuff". So, Macs at home - I'm not scammed - they are superior machines in every way, and really not much more expensive than comparable computers. I also run Linux on a Mac Book Pro, because it's a better computer than 99% of the stuff out there.

Please, for the love of $DEITY, go away

I think it's even easier and I'm not sure why nobody does this: Drain the blood from the person. I gave blood (once) and passed out. It was not very scary, a very short window of "oh, that's weird" and I was gone. I came-to several minutes later and was fine. No gas or dangerous environment, no pain, just drain the blood out.
