It's a pretty long read, but worth it IMHO.

If anyone wants the Cliff/Cole's notes...
Someone wants to sell a laptop and red flags go off when the buyer wants to use an escrow site that he provided the link for. Tracking lead to a false site, which lead to the seller still sending a package.

"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."

Warning: pretty long, but well worth it.
Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.
