So, I am generally not an idiot, and tend to recognize phishing scams, don’t click on things I shouldn’t click on, don’t reply to/open spam, and so on. But apparently this morning I had a case of The Real Dumbs, and actually entered information in one of the tumblr phishing sites that have been popping up, after clicking on the blog name of a new follower. [But “unholywombat” was such a great name! Stupid adjective-noun combinations…] Of course, when I woke up a bit more I realized my idiocy, and changed the log-in info for my tumblr account, as well as other sites/services using the same email. Hopefully I was quick enough to avoid any real damage, and the fact that I have no credit card info online also insulates me a bit from financial repercussions, etc. I’m also hoping I was quick enough to prevent my blogs from passing on this grossnesss. I’m sure none of you, gentle readers, would fall for such a thing, but if you ever click on a link to my blog, or any other, and are told to revalidate your log-in info, DON’T. Also, friends, if I do start sending out junk, please let me know via real-life means asap, and I’ll take further action. Ugh. Life is easier if you are just not dumb, but I guess we all have to slip up somewhere in life sometimes.
“He said, ‘I’m not going to hurt you. Don’t worry, I’m not going to hurt you.’ Then he said, and I remember: ‘Don’t get too excited. That was just round one.’”
He stood there, leaning against the dresser in their bedroom, naked, knife in hand, staring.
“He wasn’t smiling. He wasn’t scowling. He was just staring.”
For Butz’s partner, this waiting for more pain was worse than experiencing the pain in the moment.
The prosecuting attorney asked: How many rounds were there altogether?
It is horrific. Please understand that before you click through. Please also understand how important it is for us as a society to listen to people like this women who are brave enough to speak, rather than shushing them or turning away or otherwise pretending that the terrible terrible things that they lived through did not occur. Because they did.
And it turns out I’m scrappy.
“You assholes DO know that the Onion is a fake news source, right? They are satirical, and cater to only the most intelligent individuals capable of their advanced humor and who appreciate their ability to take headline news and poke fun at it to blatantly illustrate the stupidity of people like YOU and our government.”
So many levels!
