    Except for the yappin' I do, so I'll add a link to the book, "Real Artists Have Day Jobs: (And Other Awesome Things They Don't Teach You in School)," here:

    Fuck this country, anyway.

    Smiley McGrouchpants "Sand trap"? And what, they steal your clothes and jewelry and personal identification, and make you work in a mine? Come on, New Zealand's a bunch of saps -- really, really nice people! I think. (pause.) Hmm ...

    Smiley McGrouchpants Only one way to find out! Well, probably not *one*, but ... see you next year! I'll let you know how it turns out. Happy independence day, you silly Americans. This ship's goin' down! Wait 'til you see Trump voted in as president; then you'll regret not saying sayonara to these here parts.

    But, seriously though ... wouldn't they want your credit card information, and other shit like that, before you appeared on those shores? Who *does* wholesale piracy nowadays? That's gone out of fashion, centuries ago, unless you're too low on the economic ladder to be pitched stuff like this, and likely To Be Missed by Others. Maybe not. I dunno.

    Thoughts? Comments? Willingness to loan me $165K? I should be able to pay you back *next* year, in full.

    Maybe I should contact one of those "Payday Loan" places (with the 524% APR, at least here, before OSPIRG did the math and helped get a law passed) and put them up against these all: scam vs. scam. At least, that's *ethically* square and neutral ... right? Right.
