Not every story on every site is going to apply to me. I learned to accept that long ago. I don't find it necessary to imply that that particular fact makes it necessarily contrary to the mission statement that I want to think is the operating rule for EVERY SINGLE STORY. I know that isn't a fact.

It is an article. It has to do with policy that appears to be spreading through many US providers.

There's a very simple way of avoiding articles like this if they don't interest you. Look at the headline and don't read it.

Not everything has to be to your taste to be OK.

People take Musk's jokes too seriously. SpaceX is building a pedestrian underpass to the big SpaceX parking lot that is across a major street (Crenshaw Blvd in Hawthorne). There have been accidents, and a number of SpaceX employees have been hit by cars trying to cross the busy street.

"This is a vehicle that travels from 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds," Speckman also said during the interview. "She's clearly having to swerve to miss a vehicle going the wrong way on a one-way street. If her foot should happen to hit the accelerator, it's like a rocket ship. I don't know why they have to make a car that does that."

Because some people WANT a car that does that. There's no reason you had to buy it though. Entirely your fault. Blame yourself. Every single day of the rest of your life blame yourself.

Right, I don't actually DO any of the things I was claiming, I just lie to him. Its so much easier than actually going through with it. I put him on speakerphone and go about my business while I fuck with him.

No videos, but one dude totally caught on and started singing to me before he hung up.

> The scammers have become wise to this. They refuse to deal with Windows 98 and Windows XP on grounds that Microsoft has announced their end of support.

So much effort anyway....its easier to not setup a VM and...get this.... Lie to them.

Its fun. Treat it like a video game. Its role playing practice. Your just rolled a new character "stupid user". Just pretend to be the dumbest user you ever tried to help, and imagine what issues they might encounter. Feel free to be "too smart for your own good".

My favorite was when one guy asked me to open a link "in chrome", I agree. 3 mins later he is asking "whats going on now?" "oh I am installing chrome" "oh so you have a web....ok" He waited another 5 minutes before checking in again.

Hint: I wasn't installing chrome
