    Heehee! I would have hung up a couple of minutes earlier than that... :P

    That`s a great idea. In fact, I`m gonna try that myself, without, you know, a machine.

    In the middle of reading the article the entire page turned blue with dark blue question marks and I was invited to take a survey... Is there a “Webcrapper 2000” available? It’s either the site (even though I love engadget) or I need to do an adware scan.

    Whoever wrote the forth comment (scroll down) on the page...that was funny. I heard that you can also just say, "ooooooo, I`m soooo interested" and then just leave, come back 5, 10, 15 min later and see if they hung up yet. Less effort.

    That’s great, I can’t wait to build one. Of course I’ll have to make it look a little sleeker. Maybe build the components into a box or something. The problem is that I’m registered with the “do not call” list. Guess I’ll have to try it out at a friend’s house. It might even make an interesting Christmas gift for someone.

    It`s WAY more fun to do it yourself. I love keeping telemarketers on the phone!

    I always answer telemarketer like this, "Je ne parle pas anglais."(I don`t speak English in French)
    "Oh, oh....espanol?"
    -Clicking-Spanish spanish
    "Uhhh, I don`t speak spanish, dude."
    Then repeat.

    I have more fun talking about how I can`t buy things because my pet goats might get into it and tear it up. And I always answer the phone "Bob`s crematorium, you kill `em, we grill `em"
    the simpsons is just bursting with ideas

    "I like purple..."

    I feel sorry for the woman. She`s just trying to get a paycheck. I`m surprised she wasn`t yelling at the end.

    I know, the woman probably thought he was retarted. Although the machine did say he had a memory loss problem. Oh it`s so hilarious!!! :-D

    I think I`ll pick one up today! Telemarketers are ALWAYS calling our apartment. I agree with strangergoat, I`m gonna try this the next time I get one (without the machine).

    The best telemarketer prank I ever heard of, for those of you playing along at home... pretend you`re a radio station and answer the phone with "Caller #5, hello! You`re our lucky winner!", then pretend you are giving them a cash prize or something, chit-chat, ask them what they do, then tell them you won`t give a prize to a telemarketer. In the file I heard the telemarketer was right worked up and said "What? What? You can`t take away my prize just because you don`t like my job!". The pranksters said "Sure we can, it`s our radio station, and we can do whatever we want. Goodbye." Priceless!
