want a free iPod?

You can get a free 20 GB iPod when you fulfill the two following conditions:

1) sign up for an online offer
2) get five friends to do the same

Pretty cool marketing plan, eh? So, if you want to help me out and get a free iPod at the same time, just follow this link: http://www.freeiPods.com/?r=13510187

Also, please let me know if you do it, so I can keep track. Thanks and enjoy your iPod!!

I signed up for the Blockbuster trial online membership, because I wanted to eventually sign up for netflix anyway and this is cheaper and better...

For the skeptics: it is a pyramid scheme, but like all pyramid schemes, those who get in early do indeed profit from it.

Subject: Software development positions on the moon?

Dear Lunar HR,

I was wondering if you had any open positions on the moon for a software developer? Since your lunar positions are not listed on your website, I must write to find out. Barring an offer from another lunar office, I will be moving to New York City on January 30 looking to work for a progressive web company. I am very flexible and indeed a citizen of earth (subsection USA). If you would be interested in an out-of-the-box thinker in your New York office, I would be open to set up an interview. My resume is available at http://www.amuzulo.net/resume.doc.

Also, congrats to your team for thinking up this brilliant joke!

Sincerely yours,
Chuck Smith
