I got a call from someone trying to steal money with some kind of travel deal scam yesterday.

It started with a 'bot pretending to be a guy named "Tim". I told "Tim" that I'm over 28 and have a credit card.

I got to a real human and kept the guy going for almost 10 minutes.

He wised up when I told him that I always take my Nile monitor therapy lizard with me while traveling, and that any hotel or resort where we stay has to maintain a supply of fresh crocodile eggs for my lizard.

Maryland scraps gun "fingerprint" database after 15 failed years

Millions of dollars later, Maryland has officially decided that its 15-year effort to store and catalog the "fingerprints" of thousands of handguns was a failure.

Since 2000, the state required that gun manufacturers fire every handgun to be sold here and send the spent bullet casing to authorities. The idea was to build a database of "ballistic fingerprints" to help solve future crimes.

But the system — plagued by technological problems — never solved a single case. Now the hundreds of thousands of accumulated casings could be sold for scrap.

"Obviously, I'm disappointed," said former Gov. Parris N. Glendening, a Democrat whose administration pushed for the database to fulfill a campaign promise. "It's a little unfortunate, in that logic and common sense suggest that it would be a good crime-fighting tool."...

I have purchased three new handguns in California during the last 15 years. Each one included a fired cartridge case in a small sealed brown paper envelope, provided by the manufacturer in case the weapon ended up getting sold new in Maryland. A classic case of a solution looking for a problem, and a failure of "common sense." The article notes that most guns used in crimes are about 15 years old, and have often been stolen and sold illegally.
