I stumbled onto this site, I'm sure many of us are familiar with the so called Nigerian scams. This site is a good educational tool exposing many of the tricks and tools of scammers. The setup videos are pretty corny - I can't imagine anyone falling for that guy but it does illustrate the concepts. I suspect the real scammers are much more convincing.

Gee, it'd be nice if people were just honest...or if we could declare it open season on scammers and pass out shotguns.

The physics of coke cans

Rich was dropping Diet Coke cans into the door slot of our fridge and one took a bit of a nose dive down the slot, and we discovered just how thin skinned a Coke can is.

Fortunately this was not the can that Grant shook up. That one is one of these...

Coke and a smile becomes Coke and a towel. Never a dull moment at Vistasc - er, Siemens...
