Mazes and Monsters is a far out game!

Roleplaying games are very dangerous. They lead to murder! lol. Watch some of the other links too if you're interested in seeing Tom Hanks.. old school, pre-oscar style.

And also, I got this, or a variation of this both on friends pages, and emails alike, so I figure it's time to pass on the love.

ETA: Apparently the email I'm referencing below is a HOAX. My bad!

I still put both my cell and home on the registry, because I've received telemarketing calls on my cell and home line, so better safe then sorry.

2nd ETA : Sorry this is so US centric! Anyone from the UK, or Australia, or any of the other countries represented by my friendslist have the national equivalant to this for your countries?

"All cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies tomorrow (Saturday, October 13, 2007 ( Ruh roh!) and you will start to receive sale calls.

YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS!!!


To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222
OR
Visit: www.donotcall.gov


This is the National DO NOT CALL registry. It will only take a minute to registry your number, which will then be blocked for five (5) years. The call must be made from the number you want blocked.

Please pass this on to your friends and family."

( Also.. just for the sake of curiosity.. how many telemarketing calls do you get in the average week? Even with being on the no call list I'd say I get about 3. )

1.  For years, it's been against the law for telemarketers to use autodialers to call cell phones.

2.  It's pretty much a hoax.  A visit to the page that loads at donotcall.gov says so right at the top:
Did you get an email claiming that your cell phone is about to be assaulted by telemarketing calls because of a new cell phone number database? Those claims are not true. In fact, federal law prohibits telemarketers from using automated dialers to call cell phones. You may place your personal cell phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry, but there is generally no reason to do so. For more information, see the FTC's press release "The Truth about Cell Phones and the Do Not Call Registry".
