Free money. No, really. Probably only about $10 or $15, but it takes five minutes to fill out the form, and if you bought a music CD between 1995 and 2000, you’re eligible. Moreover, the deadline is tomorrow. Do it. See those dollar bills go swirling round your head. [08:01 PM]

Wasn't there some catch that if too many people responded to get their money, then nobody would get money, or something to that effect?

Nah, not exactly. If too many people respond, the money winds up going to charity for music related purposes. (A little more complex than that, but that's the gist. Read the link for details.) That'd require, um, 13,475,000 people to respond.

I couldn't see fit to give them my date of birth and a partial SSN for $10, sorry. They don't need that info.

Because it will take you through the stratosphere
And check out the planets there and then take you down Deep where it's hot, hot in Arabia, babia, then cool, cold fields of snow And we'll roll, dream, roll, dream, roll, roll, dream, dream.

I'm just saying.
