Trust the Gene Genie

Here's the poo. I stumbled across an article in Wired magazine last week about those free iPods ads and banners splashed all over the internet. There are scams aplenty offering free iPods, but the Web site -- according to Wired -- is legit. If you and five friends sign up for some kind of service from the companies they shill, they'll send you the iPod.

Here's the link to the Wired story, if your curious:,2125,64614,00.html

I want to do it, but it feels so NuSkin/Amway that I'm hesitant. But then again, I'd be getting my iPod. So I started the process; we'll see what happens. Anyone's eligible of course. So the five people I find would automatically start the process for their own free iPod, or you can just start on your own without my referral. Or you can quiety shake your head and say, "What happened? Rob used to be so sensible. When did he turn into such a sucker?"

So, if you're willing to let me exploit you, here's the link to the Web site:

Or if you simply want to check it out on your own, you just go to

And please, feel free to tell me I'm insane.

Is this your desperate attempt to find someone out there in the blog universe who will sign up and help you get your iPod? Oh sweetie, that's so sad.

It's just sad that you have to jump through all of these crazy hoops because of the slight chance that you could actually get your iPod. It would be nice to have $200 to buy one and not have to do any of this crap. I feel the pity of our situation for you. We both work very hard and have little payback. Hey, want to get pregnant again???
