Ask me about reliving my virginity

I found this on Metafilter and spent half the day reading this thread yesterday. I was on the edge of my seat even though I knew the outcome. Thanks for entertaining me on an otherwise normal Friday afternoon. I look forward to more threads where others try to scam the scammers. Sounds like a new game.

Excellent work MyNameIsJeff and the rest of the Goon Recon Squad.

Actually LEDs can burn brighter than incandescent bulbs and last much longer while using less electricity. Although they don't actually burn, the light is generated by electrons. In fact, that quote is completely wrong.

The main thing that attracted me was, admittedly, the 'OH WOW NINJAS' thing, but since then I've found a lot of great things about it and it does get annoying when people just assume it's some LOLNINJAS totally kawaii thing. If you look past the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pop culture thing built around ninjutsu, it really is a great martial art, and has a fascinating history too.

Given all the time and costs associated with this effort, it would have been more economical and efficient just to give the scammer the real powerbook.
I don't get it. :(

Also can someone explain why they don't like PDFs? I thought they were a Good Thing. A hell of a lot easier to read than an unedited plaintext dump in two posts of the entire document ... those crazy fark people!

I don't like .pdf files that aren't clearly labeled as such in the description, because clicking on one automatically opens up an IE/Firefox tab that takes about a decade to load, and occasionally crashes my browser(s). I just hate always having to check the path and saying "Oh, it's a PDF, better right click and save as." Hmph, I'm just lazy I guess.
