Re: More Stuff

Re: More Stuff

I pass by this building every day, while driving the bus. One day, I happened to notice the address number... The following was my immediate thought: We're sorry, the building you are looking for does not exist... 20200520_171547_DSCF9946_1365_1024.JPG 20200520_171417_DSCF9945_1365_1024.JPG

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Somewhere I read the intentional poor grammar and spelling filter out the people with at least half a functioning brain cell, leaving the rest of the dunderheads to actually consider this might be real. Those sad dopes are their prey. I have no difficulty believing that whatsoever. Meanwhile, it ma...
