I clicked the link to the online application for this so-called “no cost to attend” third party site at kronostm dot com. It wanted my social security number, so I abandoned the form right then and there when it wouldn’t let me continue without filling in that box, so didn’t get a chance to see if they wanted a credit card number up front - or maybe my phone number for a sales pitch.

I figure it’s a deal between CareerBuilder, Connextions, The College of Insurance, and some third party website to get me to sign up for an expensive insurance agent class, and maybe a shot at a $13/hr call center job.

Do you believe the part about the $500 starting bonus? 

I don’t.

I’ll pass.

Today's Diversion

We are reluctant to admit that we owe our liberties to men of a type that today we hate and fear -- unruly men, disturbers of the peace, men who resent and denounce what Whitman called 'the insolence of elected persons' -- in a word, free men. - Gerald W. Johnson
