One of my favorite satirical sites is Andrew Anglin’s Daily Stormer. (I mean, it’s got to be satire, right?) He also has the occasional humorous piece. Here’s one I had a hard time believing it was real, but it seems to be true. Read this:
32-year-old Katelyn George is a single mom who says she struggles to give her two boys the opportunities they need. (…) What appeared to be Hollywood action star Vin Diesel contacted her through direct messages, flattering her and started a romantic exchange of hundreds of messages. There were vague plans to celebrate his birthday in Calgary together — but a critical piece of movie making equipment broke — he needed money to fix it and save his latest film. George would be the hero and get the leading man. Instead she lost more money and had her heart bruised.
You won’t believe how hard I laughed when I read this. After all, it makes total sense that a multi-millionaire actor would message a woman who looks like this:
Of course, our condolences go out to this poor woman who has been wronged. What the scammers did is truly despicable. Yet, there is an important lesson here: due to the free flow of information on the Internet, at least in some corners of the Internet, the unrealistic demands of women are now widely known. They can be easily mocked by a phrase like “six pack abs, six feet tall, six-inch dick, and six million in the bank”. It’s one thing to chuckle when you see an average to above-average woman believe she is hot shit but quite another when the story is about a legit 2/10 who believed that a Hollywood star would be interested in her.
I wonder how high the probability is that she’d fall for the same scam twice. Let’s say someone else would pretend to be Vin Diesel, and write to her that he’s heard about the scam she fell victim of, and go from there. I think there is a non-trivial chance that she’d fall for it. It’s a much more plausible background story, too.
