Here is a story of someone who did something I have always wanted to do; scammed money off of a Nigerian scammer. Everyone has gotten those emails, and if you are like me, you have wanted to write back and just see what would happen, how far it would go, things like that. I have seen websites where people did that, like this one, but frankly, the number of Nigerian criminals who have me on their shitlist is zero, and I aim to keep it that way. In any case, I have never heard anyone actually managing to get money out of one of those scammers, but this guy in the UK seems to have done just that, taking him for $129. Good for him! I raise a toast to this man, or I will, next time I have something to drink.

And Happy Halloween!
