Comment Dealing with cops (Score 1) 204

OK, I think we've all seen the advice you should never talk to cops. Additionally, no matter what they tell you, never ever sing ANYTHING without your lawyer's advice. Signing the inventory sheet was an excellent admission of ownership of the illegally hacked cards. If the guy hadn't signed that, the cops would have had a tougher time proving who they belonged to.

It's like they tell you when you're learning navigation when studying to be a pilot. A new navigator with no experience, when trying to determine his location will do his calculations and draw a pinpoint on the map indicating the location. One with slightly more experience will draw a little circle around the point, allowing for some error. An experienced navigator will put his whole hand down on the map at the calculated point and say "We're somewhere around here".

Gotta love them using the name Coffiest. It's a name from a Frederik Pohl and Cyril Kornbluth science fiction book that lampooned marketing and consumers, "The Space Merchants". Here's a quote... "'s what makes this campaign great in my estimation - each sample of Coffiest contains three milligrams of a simple alkaloid. Nothing harmful. But definitely habit-forming. After ten weeks the customer is hooked for life. It would cost him at least five thousand dollars for a cure, so it's simpler for him to go right on drinking Coffiest - three cups with every meal and a pot beside his bed at night, just as it says on the jar."
