On the Perfect Crime

Stephen Dubner from Freakonomics says “So what’s “the perfect crime”? It turns out that if you are driving your car and run over a pedestrian, there’s a good chance — especially if you live in New York — that you’ll barely be punished. Why?”

I’d argue being a cop killing a black male is probably just as easy.


Your Email Signature

You know the email signature that you often see something along the lines of:
“Disclaimer: This message contains confidential information and is intended only for the individual named. If you are not the named addressee you should not disseminate, distribute or copy this e-mail. Please notify the sender immediately if you have received this email by mistake and delete this e-mail from your system. Finally, the recipient should check this email and any attachments for the presence of viruses. The company accepts no liability for any damage caused by any virus transmitted by this email.”

It is complete bullshit and you should treat it as such. If you’re sending confidential information in an unencrypted manner you are goddamn negligent and it’s not my fault you don’t understand the technology you are using. Could you imagine if you put the same disclaimer at the end of phone messages or conversations in general?

Well apparently the some of the employees at Goldman Sachs aren’t very tech savvy and have used what I imagine is their immense legal department, shit tons of cash and market influence to convince Google to literally delete a message out of someone’s inbox.

This sets a horrible precedent for Gmail users as Google is now willing to delete messages from people’s inboxes without their knowledge.

If you misaddress an email the protocol should be to send a follow up message saying “Hey, I fucked up and sent you a message I shouldn’t have, it contains information that I’d rather not release, would you be so kind as to ignore/delete it and as an apology I’ll buy you a fancy dinner.”

Not really.

Not really.


Two Security Fails

Today I encountered two security fails.
1) When chatting with Sprint customer support they need your account PIN to update your records. After the conversation is over they email your transcript with your PIN sent in the clear.
2) When signing up to pay a travel fee to gain entry to a South American country they confirm your signup by sending you your username and password in the clear.

Good job!


“Girls” or Life Imitates Art

Like the need to gawk at an accident, I’ve watched the HBO series “Girls” and as my fiancé will attest I often comment on how ever character in show is a shallow, horrible person and I wonder if people like this really exist.

Today while reading a psychiatrist’s analysis of “Girls” it hit me, there are people truly this horrible and to find them all you have to do is watch any of the shows on Bravo. When Kelly watches an episode of the “The Real Housewives” and I’m in the room I have to do something that involves the use of headphones or leave the room entirely. The people on Bravo made me realize that “Girls” is life imitating art and there are people who are that horrible that deserve my visceral contempt.


Coca-Cola vs Vinegar

While I’m not advocating Coca-Cola is a tonic that improves your health. When I read posts like 20 Domestic Uses for Coca-Cola Proof that Coke Does Not Belong in the Human Body. I’d like to ask if that also means that vinegar doesn’t belong in the human body.

They both have practical home uses beyond ingestion.
