Has anyone else gotten strange Hangout requests from people you don't know? Or am I the only lucky one?

One can accuse me of naivete, but I'm not stupid.  In my experience, these are people trying to scam me, sell me something, or both.

Here's how you can tell:

1. The picture is of a pretty girl that is way out of your league.
2. The initial message is something small and simple ("Hello" works) as if to judge if the account is active (or the account holder is stupid) without wasting a lot of time on it.
3. The person is not following anyone (or maybe just a handful of people, a lot of whom look like marks).
4. No one is following the person (again, except marks).

I've lived long enough to be wary of overly-friendly sexy women: they usually want something from me, and once they get it, they forget they even know me.  I've also been around the internet for a long time: Sexy lipstick lesbians generally don't hang out in gaming boards and once the truth is revealed, they're usually an overweight 40-year-old man living in his mother's basement.

Johnny T's very helpful advice on how to be a tourist in New York City. Funny stuff and 100% true.

The best line: "Carrying a map and a camera is the same as carrying a sign that reads: 'My wallet is in my back left pocket and you can have it.'" I LOL every time I hear it.

tell them. A widower tries to make his late wife’s death mean something. An important read as it raises several issues that need to be addressed at several levels.

Introduction
The Pedantic Autodidactic Polymath.  On Tumblr, I'm known as Riding to Hell in a Handbasket.  Elsewhere on the internet, I'm known as TomD1969.

I converse on the following topics:

  • Pen-and-paper role playing games (specifically, the HERO System/Champions), but I'm also interested in RPG theory (Big Model, DNS theory)
  • Computers
  • Technology in general
  • Science
  • Mythology
  • Comic books (superhero or otherwise)
  • Science Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Food
  • Politics
  • Current Events
  • Music (specifically Rock and/or Roll)
  • Movies
  • Mysteries (particularly police procedurals)
  • Thrillers
  • Comedy
Y'know... the usual nerdy stuff...
