    If you are even slightly squeamish, you don't even want to know. It's the worst picture I have ever seen.

    Watch out for those Nigerian scammers. You don't want to mess with them if they know where you live. Read the warnings on 419 Eater (I have read much worse).

    A character from internet folklore, just Google it, it isn't as bad as they are making out. There are much, much worse things on the internet than plain old tub girl.

    There are indeed, but nothing I'd want to risk some poor sod seeing.

    You make me feel terribly naive. Perhaps I am .

    I can't imagine what could be worse. I don't want to.

    Rule 34, your favourite TV show(s) as a kid.

    Don't google that unless you want some real pain!
    Life is an extraordinarily long concatenation of luck and coincidence.

    The only video I've seen that made me feel a bit ill, and the last video I blind-googled.

    a mere description of the content was more than sufficient to satisfy any curiosity I might have had.



    but back to the topic at hand, yes, a honeypot seems like a good approach. lace it with attack malware if you think you can control it (just remember Outbreak).

    or, change your backdrop to an NSA watermark, and set everything up to look like a govt spook system. that will give them pause.

    Things are rarely just crazy enough to work, but they're frequently just crazy enough to fail hilariously.
