    There is this odd movie that I saw called, "The Chameleon" that is based on a true story.

    The Chameleon (2010) - IMDb

    There is a US family that had a 13 year old that vanished. Three years later someone claiming to be the kid is found in France. It turns out to be a hoax but both sides go along with it for different reasons.

    That' the one - the tooth fairy I mean, and he's usually 3 or 4 days late.
    Very close on the owl candle - can you see inside my mind?
    [​IMG]It's this one - from his dad's bachelor pad days. It's sacred and mustn't be moved. It's been in the family for over 40 years.

    I can’t believe some people fall for those email scams either.

    Perhaps after I get all that money for helping some government official needing to move a large amounts of funds out of Nigeria because of the political unrest, I’ll do something with it to help people from falling for those type of things.

    My youngest son was huge into wrestling. When he was about 10, we bought tickets and the family went. At one point during a match (I will have to ask who the wrestlers were--big names) my son was so angry, he had his fists clenched and he was shaking. My husband and I had to talk him down. It was insane.

    Apart from the ones listed here, I've never been a victim. That book and film was genuinly creepy. I can't understand that kind of mentality. Just liked the book and film.

    Many that fall for this stuff are older people that don't quite understand the electronic age. That, I can understand. But why some others fall is a complete mystery.

    On the show Dateline, they did a program tracking back a couple of the Nigerian scams. One of the worst ones I heard about was a controller for a small town in Minnesota fell for the stupid "give me a few thousand and I'll give you few million one". The guy that is in charge of finances for a small town fell for something like that (It was his own money, not the town's). How can you have a job like that and fall for a financial scam so stupid?

    I wrestled in high school (note: but not very well). One of my best friends growing up was a national champion wrestler and an Olympic hopeful until something bad happened. To the wrestling community back then, "pro wrestling" was a farce not even to be talked about.


    Hoaxes. How could I forget?? I'm in the very town of the Balloon Boy of a few years ago, if you remember the story of that dizzy family.

    One conspiracy that never goes away, is that the NBA is rigged. The idea is that popular teams and players are given preference over smaller markets making it harder for smaller market teams to advance in the playoffs. The most famous example was game 6 of the Western Conference finals in 2002 when many thought the Lakers got favorable calls over the Kings. It was probably the most controversial game the league ever had. I don't buy it, but it never goes away.
