A 24-Year-Old Scammed Apple 42 Times In 16 Different States

nitehawk214 Re:Wow ... (411 comments)

it is up to the cashier to hold the card, read the number and call it themselves

It is up to the cashier to call THEIR OWN BANK.
They are not supposed to call the number on the back of the customers card -- for reasons that should be pretty bleeding obvious.

What good would that do? Their bank doesn't know if the customer's credit card is valid.

Predicting a Future Free of Dollar Bills

nitehawk214 Re:Not me... (753 comments)

Of course, cash isn't insured... once it is stolen, it is stolen. However, there are risks with all decisions.

I'd rather like my purse taken away from me than my eye cut out because it gave biometric access to my account.

Right, because that is likely to happen...

Lets keep our arguments against this to reasonable ones, as not to give people reason to actually try to implement this insanity.

Predicting a Future Free of Dollar Bills

nitehawk214 Re:Cashless can't happen, here is why ... (753 comments)

None of those are point of sale, and none of those show up in this study. On the flip side, very large transactions are not point of sale either, such as houses, cars, etc.

Which means that the percentage of actual transactions performed by card is much lower than they are leading us to believe. The article is using statics to mislead people, and drive clicks by working people into a frenzy.

Cash is not going anywhere anytime soon, folks. Calm down.

Bot Tweets Anonymous Wikipedia Edits From Capitol Hill

nitehawk214 Re:Some hilarity (95 comments)

And a lot of the edits were "good" edits, correcting grammar, filling in sources on existing articles. But we need to watch it to see if that is an attempt to hide the spin edits.

nitehawk214 Re:He's 15... (203 comments)

Have to been to the malls lately? No one hangs out there anymore.

Really? In that case, I might consider going to a mall again.

Actually, where I live the malls are intentionally built in the middle of nowhere, to prevent kids from reaching it, presumably.

We don't put people in jail for their thoughts.

I'm not convinced this is true.

You should have said "I don't think this is true." And then immediately been incarcerated.
