Freudian spam

somehow I've started to receive spam to my protected email account that I only give out to friends. I have too many email accounts. I normally get a few a day with the same title from multiple address. Slowly I've started to get new spam and this last one had me chuckling to myself.

Hi,

Do you want to overp ay for your M e d s?
Nothing like you need it,

V is it our site (website removed) and S A V E up to 50%


Somehow I think this is a Freudian slip rather than truth in advertising. Remember you can overpay and still save up to 50%... they never tell you that the 50% you save is from what I were thinking they wanted to charge... not the average price. It's amazing what you can trick people into thinking if you don't complete your sentences.

It should be required that students take classes that teach critical thinking and critical listening. It bothers me that bullshitters and liars are able to dupe the public into believe things because of carefully chosen misleading words.

Of course the cloud of black smoke in my head is telling me I could get rich off of other peoples' stupidity... this is America after all...everyone else is doing it!

Jaysus, I can't begin to tell you the amount of spam I've been getting, all chockful of half-written sentences. Well, except for the Christian match-up site that wants me to find a good woman.

I'm not opposed to it, but can she have a penis, please?

I haven't gotten any spam at my .mac or gmail accounts. I have always tired to make Yahoo and hotmail my spam collectors. I must have put my macboysf.com email address somewhere... one more reason to get rid of it. I'm not so much a boy anymore will all these grey hairs growing on the sides of my head.

awww! ;-) haha! well, you'll ALWAYS be a boy to me, and believe me, when you're 40-something, those words will be really really nice to reflect back on. hehe.. thankfully, for me, my dad, who is now 62, doesn't have one grey hair in his head, and that's truly something for me to look forward to! (but i do get my youthful looking skin from my mom, who still looks like she's 39-40 but in all actuality she's like 54 or something.)

*BIK*

yeah I'm going to be a hot silver fox within the next 8 years if going by my dad is any indication. I have always thought it looked good on him... he has all his hair but it's silver. I also get my youthful skin from my mom. Her and Origins' moisturizers. Oh how I love Eye Doctor!

But, but, but ...
If everyone was required to pass a course in critical thinking and listening then all the foolishness and drama over nothing would cease because people would actually know what they were talking about!

LJ would die!

Re: But, but, but ...
Well before that would happen people would also have to learn not to take everything so personally. We all know that will never happen. We would still continue to get comments enraged because we dare talk bad about Starbucks...when their iced-mocha-latte-frappa-soy-chinos make the world go round. Shh, don’t tell anyone I don’t like coffee...

I've been getting blasted too. At least it's not the one for penile dysfunction anymore. Gee. You turn 50 and AARP and the Spam for penile dysfunction start.

Hmmm. I wonder if AARP gives out the info they have on you to the Spammers if you don't join?

You know how they say there is no such thing as a free lunch... well actually there's also no such thing as a discounted lunch. AARP actually gets their info from Denny's. that's right, when you use the Senior discount at Denny's they swipe your license and whamo... Denny's has sold your info to over fifty agencies.

I wonder if this is very far from becoming a reality.

Everyone tells me I should join AARP but it freaks me out how the knew when I turned 50. They have been relentless in trying to get me to join. When my car insurance was due. Lo and behold do I not get a letter from AARP trying to get me to switch. Like how did they know my insurance was up?

I LOVE being a member of AARP!
Where else would I be able to get an inch-thick envelope full of forms and papers encouraging me to take out geezer life or geezer medical insurance every five days for the rest of my life????

(P.S. I have to admit I *do* like the magazine, however.)
