Poll results and Poon?

I picked up a NY Times this morning and everyone (at least in the West Coast) will be happy to know that NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, CNN, and The Associated Press have agreed to keep exit poll data under their hat until . . . . *drum roll*

5pm!

5pm. You know what that means – it means that at 5:01pm someone will not be able to keep their pants on. They will become nervous that another news network will make the correct call before any of the polls even close for the night and so they will begin making those tentative remarks which will turn into full out announcements complete with champagne and caviar before 8pm. 

Why do I have a problem with this?

Because I clearly recall going to bed in 2000 secure in knowing that, although I hadn’t been old enough to vote in that election, George W. Bush would NOT be the next President of the United States.  I recall going to school the next morning to a flurry of confusion amongst other classmates who had done the same as I had and were only then getting up to speed on the news. I would honestly rather have no clue this evening as to who won than to wake up to that kind of nightmare again!

 

As for Poon, well that is in reference to another fun e-mail I received this morning from Mr. Joseph Poon offering me a “business proposal” of $22,400,000.00 to “handle” with him from his bank.  He wrote to find out if I was able to help him with his business transaction from Hong Kong to the United States and in order to find out if I am a capable individual, he needs my name, contact information, age, and marital status. 

It that is all it takes for a millionaire to trust me with him cash, I’m all in!! Once again people, I beg of you to toss this garbage and not respond to it. And if you really must fall for a Poon, let it be the other version.
