Free Lasik evaluation- Schedule one now. 1 Weird Trick To Better S-x, Increased Energy, Sharper Focus

[I had not realized that ophthalmologists have made such incredible advances in their science. Surely worthy of a Nobel or at least an IgNobel.]

I just had lasik and I did not get these benefits either.  I am going to mention this at my next recheck !

I hope you at least got the sharper focus so not everything is blurry  ;) .

On the other hand, if you were experiencing the effects of better s-x and increased energy, you might not care so much about not being able to see well.   :)

Well, everybody knows that too much s-x makes you blind.  ;)

I figured I'd just do it until I needed glasses ;)

Huh. I always thought it was only the solo variety that negatively affected one's eyesight.

When I first joined Facebook, I would regularly get friend requests from young women, who wanted to share with me photos of their naked selves.  Someone on ehell said that they were pron spambots.

I started accepting the friend requests, and would immediately start posting comments, expressing condolences for the advanced state of their STDs.  I was immediately unfriended and blocked.  And unlike reporting to the Admins (who would shut down one, only to have another pop up immediately), I only had to do this twice, and I have never been bothered since.

That is seventeen different kinds of brilliant.

I am the Recruitment Manager of a steel company in Japan. We are in need of a Reputable Company/Individual in Canada and USA that can act as our Company Sales Representative (Intermediary between our clients in Canada and USA regions). If interested, kindly indicate your interest by replying this email: {removed}@hotmail.com

Regards
Cindy Doe
Recruitment Manager

* Hey, it's a hotmail address, not gmail. That's new.

* I don't think sending out e-mails to total strangers whose work histories you know nothing about is the best way to recruit for your company.

* This company Cindy Doe works for is supposed to be in Japan but the e-mail came from someone with the name surname Alvarez from Argentina. Seems totally legit.  ::)

I finally got the "microsoft, your computer sent us a message that it's infected" scam on my cell last Friday night.  They tried telling me that my computer had sent a virus notification in the last month, this is when I laughed told them never to call me again because my computer hasn't worked since June! Lol.  ;D

I got an offer to meet non-arrogant Russian ladies on Skype.

Um, no thanks. I'd be interested in meeting Russian wolfhounds, Karelian Bear Dogs or Caucasian Ovcharkas, though!

Cindy Doe gets around. In some of her messages, she says "Note: The job will only take few minutes of your time daily. You can Earn Extra dollar while doing your normal job/Business."  That's a red flag for the scam where they send you a check or two and ask you to wire most of the money to someone overseas, and keep the rest as your fee. The checks, of course, is fake.

I got a call today from someone who couldn't pronouce my name correctly and told me he was from the "special warranty department" for my .... get this..... Honda PT FJ cruiser. And asked me how many miles I have on my vehicle.

1) Honda doesn't make PT cruisers. Chrysler does.
2) My car is a Toyota.

I just laughed and said "sorry not interested" and hung up. You know, if you're going to call and scam someone, at least know manufacturers and car models.

Kind of curious about some of theses spells...tuberculosis spell?  Does it cure it, or give it to you, or give it to someone else?  Same with the cancer spell...madness spell...
Invisible human?  Me or like an an invisible mini me?  That could be fun!

Free Lasik evaluation- Schedule one now. 1 Weird Trick To Better S-x, Increased Energy, Sharper Focus

[I had not realized that ophthalmologists have made such incredible advances in their science. Surely worthy of a Nobel or at least an IgNobel.]

I just had lasik and I did not get these benefits either.  I am going to mention this at my next recheck !

I hope you at least got the sharper focus so not everything is blurry  ;) .

On the other hand, if you were experiencing the effects of better s-x and increased energy, you might not care so much about not being able to see well.   :)

Well, everybody knows that too much s-x makes you blind.  ;)

I figured I'd just do it until I needed glasses ;)

How much is too much?  And will I be able to stop "just" before I go blind?

Got this one yesterday.  It was a e-mail titled "Fax of requested information."

"We are attempting to fax information to you about your account.  Please click on the link."

I realize that my fax doesn't work, but I never request information to be faxed to me anyway.  That got deleted.
