I get lots of email intended for people who put in my email address instead of their own, but the one from the hotel that instructed me "please make sure you wash all the body paint off before jumping into bed!" was probably the most unusual.
Also made me realize I'm probably missing out on something wild & crazy! - Amit Patel
Excellent advice. - Todd Hoff
Write back and tell them it is all water base paint. - Janet from FFHound!
I think thats the best part, body paint+bed.. ?? What better way to have fun eh ?? - Peter Dawson
I get a lot of the same, but even more emails sent to me by mistake. If the email seems real and sincere, I'll usually respond to let the person know they rang the wrong email, but if they keep mailing me, I'll usually write back with something crazy. That always stops them. - Brian Fitzpatrick
I have a canned response in gmail that I send to people who send me non-automated misdirected email, but a large part of it is automated stuff :( - Amit Patel
I've come to really dislike many companies that don't require e-mail verification during account creation. - Stephen Mack
Even big companies like Facebook can get this wrong. I've gotten so many messages from Facebook the past few weeks, with no way to tell them to stop. - Amit Patel
Oh, fun, I get a second legal notice from a company I've never done business with. First time I tried explaining that their client gave them my email address instead of their own. They never replied. They sent me a more threatening letter this time. Fun! - Amit Patel

People who have an AeroPress: how easy/hard is it to clean?
I find it really easy to clean. Just a very quick rinse, and wipe-down of the plunger end with a paper towel or cloth. It's one of the reasons I bought one for making coffee at work. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yup, very easy. Most of the grounds pop off the end quite easily with one push, after you remove the basket. - Kirsten
Easy. Very easy. I just rinse the plunger (no wiping), and the whole process takes [time to nearly boiling water]+1 minute. - lris
omg I bought an aeropress and it's the best coffee ever. french presses are a pita to clean, but the aero you just pop the puck into the trash, rinse the bottom of the plunger and bob's your uncle. Every once in a while i hand wash with dish detergent and that's super easy, too. - Christina Pikas
I found it a cinch to clean and it makes great coffee. - Jenny H. from Android
Yup, just a good hot water rinse! Every now and then we'll wash ours in hot soapy water and rinse and just air dry. - Melly

For that price it better rock. - rönin
after a bit of digging around and reading, that thing specs out worse than the $100 pair of Sonys or Sennheisers frequently found mouldering in the corner of an iso booth in a run-down voice-over suite. this is definitely aimed at the gullible and uninformed. save your bread and go check out a pro audio web store like BSW or Sweetwater Sound. - Big Joe Silence
To play Devil's Advocate, it no new thing to hear people from studio background poo poo home audio gear, but where the studio needs level, controlled sound in a close environment, home enthusiast audio is a whole different ballgame. Often, you want that color to your sound. - Eric - Back to the Grill from iPhone
You want hyped frequency response? I understand the need to party, we are all consumers. There's cheaper solutions out there that don't scream "aging 1%er trust-fund kid" and will still match the drapes. - Big Joe Silence
Also, for future reference, no sane recording engineer would ever consider a set of headphones to be uncoloured or in any way flat or representative of the "true" sound, cos that's just not gonna happen outside of marketing and ad copy. In fact, in a studio, cans are pretty much always used for letting performing musicians listen to the monitor mix without leaking it into any live mics that may be around. - Big Joe Silence
But I'm not opinionated or anything. :) - Big Joe Silence
Why I oughtta - Eric - Back to the Grill from iPhone
buy a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50s? :D - Big Joe Silence
I have some ATs. Not those, but they be big. - Eric - Back to the Grill
cans are also good for checking panning and stereo imaging. and for doing "deep listening" while in a chemically-enhanced state of mind. :D - Big Joe Silence

I just saw a hardcore conservative on Facebook and her friends call Ann Coulter a freak show and her friends chime in with phrases like pure crazy. Sure, it took that soccer article to do it, but I'll call it a win.

Shocking ‘Game Of Thrones’ Finale Concludes With Arrest Of 5 Million Viewers For Piracy [The Onion]
From the article: "NEW YORK—Following a critically acclaimed 10-episode run, the HBO series Game Of Thrones capped off its fourth season Sunday night with a shocking finale that concluded with 5 million viewers being taken into police custody for pirating the show online. 'Wow, you expect some major shakeups in the final episode of the season, but that part right at the end when the FBI kicked in my door and told me to get on the ground? I did not see that coming at all,' " - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet

This is the strangest list of requirements I've ever seen for a user id. (Not passwrod, *user id*)
reminds me of when I had to set up a Chase online account. Those username requirements were much like that. - ellbeecee
That sounds a *lot* like Chase (and Schwab) requirements. - Walt Crawford
I've found pretty consistently that user names (as opposed to passwords) for financial institutions and the like are *not* case-sensitive; when I was having trouble logging into one, the person on the phone made a point of that. I don't believe I've seen in a case in the last 5 years where the password isn't case-sensitive; different issue. - Walt Crawford
You saw nothing. Forget I was here. - Slippy: Potato Croquette

Betsy, my home internet is via 3G and several times did the unit receive text messages from the service provider. How dumb is that. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I have a wifi/3G bridge thing on my Verizon account and it also has a phone number. I've never tried to call it though. - Brian Johns

The hubris of the people who lied us into the Iraq war, and the obsequiousness of the media who allow them to be “experts” now makes me sick
