    Now this is freaky.

    The Gilette Corporation sent me a free Mach 3 razor and gel in the mail. The box says "Happy 18th birthday."

    I'm beginning to see what a lot of those privacy advocates are talking about when it comes to "securing your personal information." Granted, I do need to shave, but this is...weird.

    Creepy. Whoduthunk that the government shared satellite photos of your naked 18-yr. ass-cheeks with marketing lists.

    Bizarre.

    Anyone who knows your name and address could request that you be sent one, right on the www.LDS.org website. The Mormons never question it as a possible prank. Why would they? For all they know, Elohim our Heavenly Father wanted you to hear His word [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    speaking of big brother,, I suggest everyone downloads Ad-aware software to clear their hard drives of Trojan horse "spyware" bullshit. And then get themselves a good firewall like zone alarm or something.

    You'll be suprised how much sneeky bullshit is on your hard drive. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    I love when my firewall tells me that someone was trying to access my computer and then I write their IP number in an address scanner to find out just who it was.

    so much of that stuff comes from publicly available information. when the newspaper runs their list of "recent births," that's where your Pampers come from. same with the marriage license listings.

    if you call our company for an insurance quote, we can pull up a list of cars that are registered at that address. in most cases, i have the VIN number and year/make/model of the cars before i even ask you for them. this is all publicly available through the state motor vehicle department. we just started that a month or so ago. we pay a third party for the report.

    wanna stop all this? you gotta get on your state representatives. that's where most of it starts, state driver's licenses and vehicle registrations.

    another thing-when you call a company to buy something, get a quote, etc. you "opt in" to have your info shared, credit accessed, etc...you gotta listen to the recordings before the live person comes on. so all those credit card apps you send back (and get rejected for), all those "special mail-in offers", all the rebates, the discount card they give you at the grocery store, all that shit is responsible for all the junk you get at home, and the calls you get at all the wrong times. you're giving out more of your own info than you think...

    Heh, I had a Mach 3 already, but they sent me a Mach 3 Turbo this time. It's better than the original!

    Enjoy the freebies while you can. Have you seen how expensive a Mach 3 refill is these days?

    Yes the Mach 3 rules, I switched to it a few years ago after reading article on it and would never go back. I also got a free one in the mail a few months ago and was stoked now I have one for my travel kit. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I signed up for a pet-smart card for my dog Abby, you should see the shit Abby gets in the mail now. Credit card apts, mortgage apts etc etc etc.

    Just upgraded to the turbo blades and it's worth it. I found with the original blades the shave was so close that it irritated the fuck out of my face till I got used to it, with the turbo, it's close, just not as aggresive feeling.

    It's sick how a thread about BB has suddenly become testimonials for Gillette! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    By the way, if "anyone" is reading this, I'd be more than interested in "winning" a free set of Turbo blades.
