rant/snatch

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 19, 2003 10:07 PM As regular readers will recall, tonight's SPS film was Snatch. It's a nice violent film with no major female characters, which makes it an excellent choice for future Valentine's Days. It's also a good film to watch after you discover that your check card number has been stolen and used to purchase $800 of car parts online.

Now the thing about committing credit card fraud over the Internet is that you don't get your ugly-ass spoiler or comically enormous exhaust pipe if you don't provide a shipping address. So I can hold out hope that the cops will walk up this fuckwit's driveway past his newly tricked-out Acura Integra and haul his ass off to federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison. This would require a Tyrone-esque level of stupidity on the part of said fuckwit, though, so it's probably an unlikely fantasy. Still, if he's dragged away in handcuffs perhaps it will give him time to contemplate why he thought I wouldn't notice $800 missing when it's more than half my monthly paycheck (after taxes).

Probably not coincidentally, I read today that a hacker has stolen eight million credit card numbers. Check your statements carefully!

On a completely unrelated note, I ran into one of my former students at tea today. She said she had a (physics) question for me, but I guess it wasn't very urgent, because she never got around to asking it. Tags:

former student

OK - I'm late weighing in on this subject because I have a backlog to read and just got around to it. Is this that same girl???

Re: former student

Yes, but subsequent hypothesis tests indicate that there is no significance to this event. Which is not to say that I understand her behavior, just that she doesn't seem to have the intentions I thought.
