Djinn & Tonic For What Ails You

The interweb has always been a stalking ground for the worst scum of humanity. Trolls disguised as young buxom babes try to lure you believing they really want to be your intimate friend, or predatory men looking to seduce lonely vulnerable young girls.

I get daily reminders to “finish my order” for gadgets and services I’ve never heard of. Opportunities to invest in crapto currencies that appear and disappear somewhere in an imaginary cloud. Desperate calls from bogus children claiming to be your kin who must have $2000 bail or they will be sentenced to life in prison in Turkey or New Jersey.

I hate them. In a just world they would be infected with double covid and AIDS and some god awful genital disease that would cause their nuts to shrivel up and fall off like raisins.

But since that won’t likely happen, I’ll have to console myself by skewering them in my imagination. So there.

    Bob, your dystopian characterization of the technological world in 2022 is spot on, but that hopelessness won’t be with us forever. Technology is eating the world, true, and that barn door has been wide open for decades. What’s evolving is the human ability to cope with, and adapt to, accelerating change. The technological haves and have-nots are now on irrefutable trajectories that are not complementary. It’s time to see the bigger picture and take a stand, one way or another. Choose wisely; there will be, unfortunately, winners and losers 🥳🥇🎶🥔🏈🔥❤️

  2. I’ve been getting an avalanche of fake invoices on my Google email account for some reason. I like to believe people know better, but I’m guessing they don’t.

    We also seem to be getting the majority of scam calls on our cell phones instead of the landline. My wife got the “Grandma, I’m in jail, send money” pitch recently. When she asked the caller who he was, he said:
    “Grandma, don’t you recognize my voice?”
    “No.”
    “Why not?”
    “I don’t have any grandsons.”
