Social security flaw leaves way open for cyber-theft

Think you’re safe from identity theft because you are careful with your personal information? If you have a US social security number (SSN), think again – because that personal identifier can be guessed from publicly available information

An SSN consists of nine digits, the first five of which are assigned by established criteria based in part on the zip code in which someone was born.

For 8.5 per cent people born between 1989 and 2003, the researchers were able to identify the complete SSN within less than 1000 attempts.

The math on the Paul McCartney-Heather Mills divorce is:

The math on the Paul McCartney-Heather Mills divorce is:
After 5 years of marriage, he paid her $49 million.

Assuming he banged her every night during their 5 year relationship (and being married men, we all know THAT doesn’t happen), it ends up costing him $26,849 per lay, not counting attorney’s fees and court costs.

On the other hand, Elliot Spitzer’s call girl Kristen charges $4,000 an hour. Crazy, right?


Had Paul McCartney employed Kristen for 5 years, he would’ve paid $7.3 million for an hour of sex every night for 5 years (a savings of $41+million).

Value-added benefits are: a 22 year old hot babe, no begging, no coaxing, never a headache, wide open menu, ability to put BOTH legs around you, no bitching and complaining or ‘to do’ lists. Best of all, she leaves when you’re done, and comes back the next day, ready for another round. All at 1/7th the cost, with no legal fees.* *

Honda rolls out new zero-emission car

TAKANEZAWA, Japan – Honda’s new zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell car rolled off a Japanese production line Monday and is headed to Southern California, where Hollywood is already abuzz over the latest splash in green motoring.

The FCX Clarity, which runs on hydrogen and electricity, emits only water and none of the noxious fumes believed to induce global warming. It is also two times more energy efficient than a gas-electric hybrid and three times that of a standard gasoline-powered car, the company says.

Japan’s third biggest automaker expects to lease out a “few dozen” units this year and about 200 units within three years. In California, a three-year lease will run $600 a month, which includes maintenance and collision coverage.

Among the first customers are actress Jamie Lee Curtis and filmmaker husband Christopher Guest, actress Laura Harris, film producer Ron Yerxa, as well as businessmen Jon Spallino and Jim Salomon.

“It’s so smooth,” said Harris, who played villainness Marie Warner on the hit TV show “24” and was flown over by Honda for the ceremony. “It’s like a future machine, but it’s not.”
