This is a question My most gullible moment

Someone once told me that gullible wasn't in the dictionary and I went, "yeah yeah ha ha" but when they were gone that didn't stop me checking. What was YOUR most gullible moment? Zero points for buying an icon on b3ta.

Ooops, I did it again
My friend Craig is a cock. I love him dearly, I’ve been harbouring a not-so-secret crush on him for the last ten years; he bankrolled me through my PhD and he’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever met, but he’s a cock. For it is he who is responsible for a lapse on my gullibility meter that resulted in a conversation about underage porn which one should never have with ones PhD supervisor.

It took me about 4 months to write my PhD thesis. It’s a weighty tome, 300 pages in all and has all the scientific validity of a paperweight, which is incidentally what it is now used as. I wrote up in my office at the lab, an office I shared with 8 other people. In order to drown out the inane squawking coming from the two guys at the end of the room, I invested in a pair of headphones and trawled the new fangled interweb to find me a radio station. Something with no DJs, something suitably shouty to keep my spirits up (note to potential thesis writers, do NOT listen to Radiohead while writing. 8 hours of data analysis is bad enough, it’s positively suicide inducing when served with an accompaniment of Thom Yorke).
Anyway, I asked Craig what he would recommend as he knew his way round the web far better than I did. “Evildildo.com” he said. “Really?” I replied, “you’re not winding me up are you?” “No,” he assured me, “it’s a real website, not porn or anything.”
So I tried it, and he was right. Great music, no DJs, just what I wanted. I went back to him. “Thanks, mate, any more you can recommend”

“Try Smooth Jazz, oh, and Teensluts.com, it’s American indie music, the kind of stuff you like.”

Except it isn’t, is it. Trustingly, I typed “Teensluts.com” into my address bar and was greeted with what looked like Britney Spears in the “Hit me Baby” video. Well, if in the video she’d been sucking an enormous black cock…

I froze, horrified. Then I was treated to the porn pop up frenzy. Every window I tried to close, another one would open, with more and more lurid images. I was squealing “make it stop, make it STOP,” but no one was coming to my aid. They too were frozen, horrified because my supervisor was standing behind me…

After a long, painful conversation about why I had been looking at underage girls in the kip, he agreed to let the matter drop.

Craig met me for coffee and said “hey, did you try the websites I gave you?”
“Yeah, like I’m going to type in Teensluts.com. How stupid do you think I am?”
“I did wonder. God, imagine if you had eh…”

Rakky we love you!
Classic haplessness. It's reassuring to see that it even befalls PhD students too.
