The Home Depot Scam
A “heads up” for you and any friends you have who may be regular Home Depot customers.
Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you.
Here’s how the scam works:
Two seriously good-looking 18 or 19-year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping in the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say “No” and instead ask you for a ride to another Home Depot.
You agree and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start having sex with each other. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and performs oral sex on you, while the other one steals your wallet.
I had my wallet stolen April 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, three times just yesterday, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.
Again – please beware
Video Shows Navy Missile Destroying Doomed Satellite
Is this a political move to show the US can shoot shit down in space? Is it a precautionary measure to help remove any threat of an inoperable spy satellite with a toxic fuel tank? You be the judge.
Destroying the satellite’s onboard tank of about 1,000 pounds of hydrazine fuel was the primary goal.
Insane Ski Jumps
Wow. The only sport I like that has to do with cold weather is hockey. But you can’t deny awesome shit when it happens. And the video below is “awesome shit.”
Watch this and think about the height of the drops. Even with light, billowy snow – the landing has to be harsh.
