    That's a shame, dude. Diane Foster is HOT. And she was offering free swag? You were almosted on your way to the good life.

    I think we all got scammed into reading this.

    I'm calling the business bureau to get my 20 seconds and wasted bandwidth back.

    Speaking of scams. There's free grant thing where they call you. I got the call this morning. They'll send you all the info all you have to give them is 4 dollars via a credit card to cover shipping. Yeah right.

    I think the best part is that you can choose between " 45 thousand dollars... or 25,000 in cash"
