    It is amazing that so many pople will fall for such a thing. Too bad the kid did not get away with it. That was rather slick.

    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    You'd think with all the hype that this kind of thing receives, these 'investors' would not fall for such foolishness. But that's the world we live in, some people will do anything for the money. I guess there is a lesson in this somewhere

    Anyhow, good day all.
