    I didn't think not authenticating with FB was enough. That is, even if I don't stay logged into Facebook, they can still query my cookie(s) and correlate it with my FB identity, right?

My sister works for a bank, and attended a vendor presentation about software that monitors IVR calls. They found that they got good results when listening for two keys phrases before transferring people directly to a Retention Specialist operator: "ridiculous" and "bullshit."

Naturally, I now answer "agent" to every prompt and then switch to "this is ridiculous bullshit" after a couple of tries.

Don't know your blood type? If you're reasonably healthy then go donate blood, and it will be automatically serotyped -- along with tests for a ton of other things. Also, free juice & cookies (and Guinness, at least when I donated in London twenty years ago!).
