I came into the house after working outside this evening to find that my wife was cooking a wonderful dinner and had an old episode of Dr. Who on the TV. As I fired up my computer I heard a commercial come on: one of those public service announcement things directed at people who had taken some sort of medicine and who might have experienced some adverse side effects. What I heard was that if you had this symptom or that symptom or some other symptom - or had died - they wanted you to phone them. I burst out laughing.

I'm pretty sure that I know the response rate from that last group, but I wonder what response rate they were expecting.

I laugh at the "or even died call...".

A long time ago this sort of thing was simply illegal.

A long time ago a lot of things were simply illegal. And some things that were legal and unrestricted are now illegal.

I wonder if 800 numbers will work down where I'm bound to end up.

Bill, I wouldn't trust any 800 numbers down there .

Probably a scam.

But all the scammers will be there, so just to torture them the 800 #s will all go to actual charitable contributions.

And they probably wouldn't really be toll-free numbers either. Scammers, cheaters, unethical purveyors and purloiners of personal property. Might as well stay here.

Kinda like that question after a car accident;

‘Tell me where it hurts?’

‘I don’t know, let me ask my lawyer.’
