I was looking at my pitiful blog stats this morning (like I do every morning) and I noticed a referral from my site to a place I don’t remember linking to. I followed the link which lead me to one of those pyramid deal offering sites. You know the ones where if you referr just one person who referrs just two people, who some how referr five people that referr… whatever. I started thinking, “Hmm…I need more money because right now I can’t afford that starship I was looking to buy from the Chrysler Starship dealer.” It’s always seductive when somebody throws math at you as a quick and easy way to earn cash. However, I know better. When I was much younger I tried the whole pyramid through spam mail thing (before I understood what spam was and possibly before most people understood what spam was) and I checked my mailbox each day for the magical incoming cash.
Fool me once, shame… shame on you. Fool me twice, ya’… ya’ can’t fool me again.
(Quoted from the honorable G.W.)
As bad as I need to buy that starship (and I really do need something to fire my angle brackets of destruction) I’m not making an idiot out of myself anymore. Then I read the site some more because it still sounded enticing. According to the offer,

No thanks. I think I would make out better if I just directly asked my readers for money. There’s an idea! Would you all give me some money?
