Psycho girlfriend on eBay promises 1-month fantasy

Filed under
Web

When some people imagine an ideal love, they dream of a young couple running toward each other through a field of posies, arms wide for an embrace.

Others picture lovers exchanging longing glances across a candlelit dinner table.

And then there are those who fantasize about women relentlessly stalking them.

Fields of posies are hard to come across, and candlelit dinners are difficult to prepare, so maybe the person who dreams of dating a psychotic stalker is the one whose fantasy is most likely to come true.

In fact for just over $100, that dream may come true, thanks to eBay.

eBay, which has revolutionized what people can buy and sell (including the guy who rented out ad space on his forehead), has also provided a forum for loonies who know that everything has a price.

This eBay item, e-mailed to me recently by an alert reader, promises to give the high bidder the brand of love that only a psycho girlfriend can offer.

"Let me be your fantasy imaginary psycho girlfriend for a month. I am 29 years old, 115 pounds, with natural purple hair and a fascination with death. I am certifiably insane (copy of certificate available upon request)."

At last glance, the bidding had reached $99.

For one month, the psycho girlfriend promises to call the winner weekly inquiring of his whereabouts and accusing him of seeing other women. Those calls will be followed by long e-mails professing her undying love, which will be followed by even longer e-mails that describe how much she hates the winner and never wants to see or hear from him again.

It's hard to believe you'd have to pay American dollars to find a crazy girlfriend. You might even think, after hearing your friends' dating horror stories, that crazy girlfriends grow on trees.

But the truth is that the "crazy girlfriend tree" can't always be relied on to provide a woman as frightening as eBay offers.

And even though 30 days doesn't seem like a very long time to date someone, the psycho girlfriend promises to provide the winner with enough evidence of her deranged devotion to last a lifetime. So, while her program lasts only a month, the other women in your life who will witness the punishment you'll endure to keep a girlfriend are sure to be awestruck by your ability to hang in there.

Especially when the psycho girlfriend sends you a package filled with dead insects, mutilated stuffed animals and disturbing threats ... followed by an apology, followed by a love letter written in blood.

It is well-known that, when it comes to attracting women, having a crazy girlfriend is more effective than having no girlfriend at all. And that's the beauty of the psycho. She offers a short-term commitment for a month's worth of stalking that will prove to other women that you're the sort of man that women go absolutely insane over. Just don't be shocked when her break-up letter is a threat.

  • 3 reasons to say 'no' in DevOps
    DevOps, it has often been pointed out, is a culture that emphasizes mutual respect, cooperation, continual improvement, and aligning responsibility with authority. Instead of saying no, it may be helpful to take a hint from improv comedy and say, "Yes, and..." or "Yes, but...". This opens the request from the binary nature of "yes" and "no" toward having a nuanced discussion around priority, capacity, and responsibility.

Boy was I wrong.

OpenBSD Gets Mitigated For Meltdown CPU Vulnerability

  • OpenBSD Gets Mitigated For Meltdown CPU Vulnerability
    A few days back FreeBSD 11 stable was mitigated for Meltdown (and Spectre vulnerabilities), which came more than one month after these nasty CPU vulnerabilities were disclosed while DragonFlyBSD was quickly mitigated and the first of the BSDs to do so. While OpenBSD is known for its security features and focus, only today did it land its initial Meltdown mitigation.
  • Meltdown fix committed by guenther@

    Meltdown mitigation is coming to OpenBSD. Philip Guenther (guenther@) has just committed a diff that implements a new mitigation technique to OpenBSD: Separation of page tables for kernel and userland. This fixes the Meltdown problems that affect most CPUs from Intel. Both Philip and Mike Larkin (mlarkin@) spent a lot of time implementing this solution, talking to various people from other projects on best approaches.

    In the commit message, Philip briefly describes the implementation [...]

France Proposes Software Security Liability For Manufacturers, Open Source As Support Ends

It sometimes seems as though barely a week can go by without yet another major software-related hardware vulnerability story. As manufacturers grapple with the demands of no longer building simple appliances but instead supplying them containing software that may expose itself to the world over the Internet, we see devices shipped with insecure firmware and little care for its support or updating after the sale. The French government have a proposal to address this problem that may be of interest to our community, to make manufacturers liable for the security of a product while it is on the market, and with the possibility of requiring its software to be made open-source at end-of-life. In the first instance it can only be a good thing for device security to be put at the top of a manufacturer’s agenda, and in the second the ready availability of source code would present reverse engineers with a bonanza.
