Protect your privacy
We've all had to fill out some sort of online form before that wants your name, address, phone number, lineage, whether you wad or fold your toilet paper, etc. Want to keep all this info from being freely distributed? When asked for your age, choose "under 13" and they're not permitted to retain or share ANY of that personal stuff. But wait...isn't that lying? Not really...they ask for your age, and the drop-down box usually doesn't specify YEARS. So hey...I really am under 13 DECADES old...they did mean decades, didn't they?
It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...

Something I've always done... and is very fun-
When buying stuff online, for the shipping address-
In the name field, put "firstname website lastname"
Pretty fun, give it a whirl.
