    Ok maybe I'm just being retarded here, or not getting the joke or whatever, but this site: http://www.theunioncares.com/ is pretty scary if it's real, or seems so to me... Like the organ posession bit etc. The only things which make me think it's not real are their night vision eye thins and the fact that in the picture gallery of the guy who works as a "level 5 repo man" in their careers section there's a picture of him receving some kind of lapdance...

    Aarg maybe my tiredness has removed my sense of humour :p:

    I'm just as confused LOL. It's seems too whacky to be for real...

    EDIT: I think it's something to do with a movie:

    Synopsis:

    In the futuristic action-thriller Repo Men, humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don't pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property...with no concern for your comfort or survival.

    Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. When he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company's top-of-the-line heart-replacement...as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart's no longer in the job. When he can't make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy's former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.

    Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run.

    It's a (rather clever) viral marketing campaign for the upcoming film Repo Men.

    I can't believe anyone would think it's real. It's like assuming the DHARMA websites that LOST used to use to promote actually sent you to the island. :p:

    Do I get both eyes for $345,000, or would I need to splash out double for a set?

    Edit: I've just noticed their repo man looks exactly like Jude Law! I wonder how much a designer replacement head costs.
