We don’t use a Social Security number in Australia like USA or the UK, so it may not be so important. Nor is it easy to obtain personal information from an electoral roll. But this is obviously a problem that Facebook and Myspace users should be aware off. DELETE your birth date, maiden name, telephone numbers and address information off ASAP. The stuff you thought was private is NOT. Codes are available to access this.
I really really like Facebook, but this Facebook Anthem sends a strong message.
“Facebook is a crime, when people have too much time. Sending me requests, IQ and brain tests. Its no f**king joke, I don’t like to Superpoke. Scrabulous, Hotness, update my status. I’m getting bored of Facebook, So don’t invite me, throw a sheep or bite me”….
This is a Flash Game from the Got Milk advertising campaign and voted one of the most popular Flash Games on the Internet for several years. It takes a few minutes to load up, and to figure out how to play, but it a lot of fun and very entertaining.
Graphically, this game is jaw-droppingly good. The retro look and feel really evoke a family board game and there is enormous attention to detail from the realistic physics of throwing the dice, to the design of the in-game cards. The audio is similarly polished and the “interactive challenges” provide variety and ensure that the gameplay is both engaging and entertaining.
A walkthru is available here. But this game is a piece of cake. and for those who have trouble with it. I suggest that you put your mouse way in front of you for the driving challenge and hold the mouse down. Remember code 6,97,31,52,8 and say CAN I PLEASE GET THE GLASS.

Similar stunts have now been pulled off with limited success in dozens of other cities, but as it is with copycats, they are never as good as the original, even if they were able to motivate more people mostly university students.
