Maybe Chapman just had really bad aim. Man, don't get me started. Right, Michael?
Speaking of nut-proofing your world:

> If you want to block Google from divulging your private information,

That reminds me: Ron figured out how to dump a telemarketer with four words. "This is a fax." Ta da. And after all those years of paying extra for Caller ID. And before Caller ID, pretending that whomever they'd asked for was dead. Simple is good.
Of course, it's not nearly as much fun as pretending to be a disturbed Asian woman who would get beaten again by "her Big Joe Master" if the telemarketer refused to please leave his phone number so Mr. Big Joe can call back when he get home from Bible Study Poker Game where he smell like smoky lady friends all night.
Man. I hope I didn't just offend any disturbed Asian women out there. Unless it was Yoko of course.
