    I've always been amazed at how many people fall for these things, and often people who you would never think could possibly not sniff something fishy. Maybe hoping something really good and favorable would happen for so long, when it finally looks like it did your logic sensor shorts out. Or maybe people think it's God's reply to all their praying. Who knows. I've known a couple of those people though, and neither of them could even remotely be considered dim witted.

    I think a lot of these scams play on the emotions of people. Think of the feeling, if one even remotely believed it. Or the scams that claim a relative is in need of money quickly to get out of trouble or jail.
    Scammers are scumbags.

    Well, you do learn a lot, but it's very focused into a field of study. You don't learn about life in the real world. But, now, LOGIC is part and parcel of programming. She does NOT have a very logical mind except for solving puzzles, math problems (her undergrad major was math), and such. Her Christianity gives her too much trust in her fellow man. She's just too nice to strangers. She's a wonderful, loving woman, which is good for me, but I have to act as body guard and scam alert.

    Scammers just never stop and are always coming up with new scams.
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    Well, it's a might large, wouldn't fit in my shed, and it'd be a pain mowing around trees with.
