    These 2 mysterious envelopes about the Screenwise Panel.

    Apparently Google wants to pay me to spy on me. The first envelope contained a real US $2 Dollar bill and the second had 5 ones.

    They will send me a high end router and a person to install it for free while it collects data on my internet usage. If I accept they will send me $100 to install the hardware and $30 or more per month based on usage.

    It has a signature by a J. Michael Dennis, Ph.D of GfK Custom Research. It seems legit but I'm still a little weirded out.

    Hahaha! Dude, you're worth more than that. Negotiate a little, make them pay for a reach around.

    I'd feel lucky too if I got $7 in the mail. I wouldn't do that though.

    :-/ I wouldn't do it. They've got enough information on you anyway.

    Do you live in kansas city? I'd do it but I'll try to negotiate the price first. I dont care if some random guy sees me downloading porn.

    As a kid I recall getting one dollar bill and a logbook for a Nielsen radio survey. I was pretty stoked. I got to write down my radio listening habits for a week! Yeah!

    Cool! Let us know how it goes. Maybe post your survey answers here so we can all measure our TV watching habits up. Mine would pretty much be:

    Seinfeld reruns, The Office, and Parks and Recreation (also Mad Men).

    Do it, and search for the most fucked up and oddly specific things you can as much as you can.

    'Midget with 1 leg fucking horse'
    'Pieces of chicken in urethra'
    'Anal insertion wiimote zelda gameplay'
    'How to cook human leg meat'
    'Bulk 9mm ammo'
    'Extra small condoms'
    'Extra large tampons'
    'Car key anal insertion'
    'Google maps emergency room'
    'Taxi service'
    etc.

    Incidentally, did you know you can buy 1000 rounds of 9mm for $220?
    That's a good deal, right there. Even comes with an eagle sticker on the bag.
