I was reading through someone's blog who made some interesting and weird toys and some strange rocket contraption in KATG's honor and discovered something, quite to my surprise.

Turns out there are actually prizes Michael's site is giving out, and someone from these forums actually won the iPad. No idea if he ever received it, but I do assume he did(or will soon).

So, I feel obligated to say, my apologies to Michael for doubting the validity of the prizes and tossing it in with all the, to me, similar sounding scam sites on the internet that steal data and fake winners or disappear without ever actually paying out. I think the site speaks for itself, any quasi savvy internet user should know exactly what they are wading into when they sign up, but there are definitely real life actual prizes given to real life actual people who signed up.

While I will continue to raise an eyebrow at dubious sounding sites like these popping up in the inbox, if Michael throws another one up, even if Keith throws my name in the ring again, I will refrain from raising any questions, as I believe he will not scam anyone.

It should be called the Mexican maid diet.
