QR Codes and Messing with Telemarketers

Buffalocheeks QR code

Hey readers! You see that boxy picture above? That’s the QR code for this blog. I can post it in a lot of different websites to promote my blog. I have zero experience with QR codes, but I think you can access them through QR code scanners on your phone. Play around with it and tell me if it works!

Anyway, a funny thing happened today. I got a call from an unknown number, and on the other line was a man that I assume is either Indian or Pakistani, judging by his accent. He introduced himself as “Juan”. He called because there is some kind of malware on my PC that I have to get rid of by purchasing a “Windows Security Blah-Blah-Blah” for $535. I thought this was funny because I have a MacBook, and he couldn’t have picked a better time to call because I felt like messing around with him a little bit. And indeed I did. After he pitched his scam to me, I asked him, in my very convincing Spanish accent, if he offers his service in Spanish. I do that with most telemarketers that I feel are trying to con me. He laughed and said, “You stupid motherf*cking bitch! You don’t want to fix your computer?! Are you stupid?!” and I replied in Spanish with “No entiendo lo que me estás diciendo” (I don’t understand what you’re telling me). He said “F*ck you” about 13 more times and kept trying to sell me his product. Talk about customer service. For the duration of the phone call, I kept saying “Yes” to everything he said, because that usually makes people go nuts. He asked me for my name, address, and date of birth, and I replied with “yes” to all of them. He finally hung up after approximately 15 minutes of hearing his potential customer say “yes” over and over again. If you ever get a call from an anonymous telemarketer that you feel is trying to take advantage of you, annoy the hell out of them. It’s really fun!

“Juan” didn’t have a good day today.


Roller Coaster Chess, Burglar Teletubbie, and Halloween

Hey there, it’s been a while. So I was looking around KnowYourMeme.com hoping to find a funny meme to make this blog look cool, but then I came across a really cool meme that kind of blew my mind… Roller Coaster Chess. That’s right, Roller Coaster Chess. I chose this not because it’s so funny, but because it’s so clever. It’s about the souvenir pictures that you get at the end of an amusement park ride, except these involve a couple kids playing chess on a chessboard that has glued chess pieces on it. The kids that are playing chess aren’t even screaming or freaking out like people usually do on roller coaster rides. They’re just so calmly playing chess while the car’s just dropping at 70 mph. How did that chessboard get on the ride to begin with? That seems like a bit of a safety hazard, but I still think it looks cool.

Look how cool these pictures are

And it not only involves roller coasters or log rides, but they also involve any other rides that might be a little bumpy.

The first time you see one of these pictures, you get tricked into thinking that they’re really playing chess, but then you come to realize that they’re just staring deeply into a chessboard with game pieces glued onto it. Pretty cool, right? I’m hoping this will make this blog look cooler.

Speaking of ridiculous things, there was a 20 year old kid from Lehigh University who broke into his friend’s house at 2 in the morning. Dressed up as a yellow Teletubbie. What’s funny about this story is that the guy ended up going into his buddy’s fridge and dumping Chinese food in his “man purse”, then leaving. He also damaged a door when he broke in. How desperately hungry does one have to be to break into a home, break a door, dressed up as a yellow Teletubbie just to steal some Chinese food? You can read the story here.


Before I forget, I want to wish you Happy Halloween! It’s a fun holiday, so don’t do stuff that’ll make it un-fun for you or other people. Don’t break into your friend’s house in a silly costume, unless he/she says it’s alright. If you’re going to eat candy, make sure you brush and floss. If you’re going to drink, don’t lose your sh*t. Make good decisions. I sound like a dad right now. I hope you get the point though. Be good!

Here’s a picture of my costume:

Album I’m listening to

Black Sabbath, Sabotage (1975)

When you bring up the amazing heavy metal band, Black Sabbath, one usually thinks of “the band that played ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Paranoid'”. Which is very true, but no one really cares about the music they made after those two hit songs. Sabotage is one of those albums that few people really care about. I didn’t care about listening to it before, but then I started listening to it, and I was satisfied within seconds! It has the perfect combination of heavy guitar riffs, funny lyrics, and softer riffs. Sabotage is so easy and fun to listen to, and not only that, but it’s one of the best albums to listen to this Halloween. Go check it out!
