Update On Sleazy Camera Offer
I called the Larry H. Miller car lot regarding their scammy offer, where, as expected, a very nice receptionist got flustered and asked me if I would like to speak to the manager to voice my complaint. She said that the lying camera deal was "just a marketing thing", as if that explains anything.
Having such a nice person as your first contact to a wretched hive of scum and villainy like Larry H. Miller Auto is sort of like having Pikachu guard the gates of Hell - it softens you up before the real torment begins. Predictably, my righteous indignation had melted away by this point and I told her to have a nice day and hung up.
So, let's leave aside the question of whether blatant lying in advertising is illegal, and get to the real meat of the issue: when are we going to dissect that crap camera? Very soon, my friends, and we'll be sure to post the step-by-step dissection online (I can't stand a vivisection, so we'll take the batteries out first).
