just kooky enough to be true

at me folk's house the other day my brother was rambling on about some new type of crank calls, errr, telemarketing method. took me a minute to think of the word. as far as i'm concerned it's verbal junk mail.

which reminds me of a joke. what do you get if you cross a jehovah's witless with a hell's angel? someone who knocks on your door and tells YOU to get fucked.

anyway, apparently the telemarketing fuckers have a new way of trolling for phone numbers. they've got some computer system that rings your phone, you answer and no-one is there. the computer records that someone answered at that time and puts you in it's little database (hope it's a microsoft database and shits itself, and i hope their fucking servers are microsoft and they fucking melt down, and are connected to the web and catch a mother fucking virus)

so where was i? oh yeah. once you've answered the phone then it records etc... but apparently if you bash the hell outta the hash key it fucks it up and it doesn't know what's going on. or something. you can apparently tell if it's one of these computer calls, cause when the phone rings, there's no-one there.

anyway i thought it was all a load of shit. being the believing person that i am, and then i get home to the house i'm babysitting, and the phone rings, and no-one is there? goddamn! ######################################################################

dunno if that works or not. maybe i should consult the oracle of all knowledge. can't find what i want, but i find yet another example of torturing telemarketers. it's a pretty good example. not quite as good as torturing them in person. give me a fork and a telemarketer and i'll amuse myself for hours.

trolling austar. music max is on. they've got this song my dad used to play ad-nauseaum, queen of hearts, by juice newton. i thought it was bonnie tyler, but not according to music max. maybe they both played it. then tom petty with some of the travelling wilburys, before they became the travelling wilburys, or maybe after. i've got no idea.

unfortunately they are still playing 80's though. and while i likea lot of the 80's stuff, a lot of it is rubbish as well.
