Take your evil measurement

For all those who, like me, always had the misconception they were practically saintly...

You Are 30% Evil

A bit of evil lurks in your heart, but you hide it well.

In some ways, you are the most dangerous kind of evil.

Unforgotten by my spammer friends

Today, I received spams from:
  • Healthy Cleanse
  • Roscoe Belcher
  • Gay Benjamin
  • Simone Shea
  • Dorothy Combs
  • Aubrey Browning
  • Rosalie Phillips
  • Tina (Tina who?)
  • Specialists in Foreclosure
  • Cash Advance
Couldn't go on yesterday to thank them all for their special messages. This morning, more came in from:
  • Rosalinda V. Currie
  • Rosalinda X. Currie (must be sisters, maybe even twins?)
  • Louis Porter
  • Dion O. Glass
  • Dion K. Glass (Dion O. and Dion K. are the poor suckers that married the Currie twins, no doubt)
  • Darla Lehman
  • Rigoberto Serrano
And what did they all have to say? Well, the Currie twins had news about one part of male anatomy that they want enlarged (Dion O. and Dion K. must be lacking in that department), while Louis let me in on his philosophy regarding drug buyers' needs and wants ("When individuals ask for their treatment they commonly seek the following ...") and Darla had me puzzled with the following statement:
Message subject


But Rigoberto had the best news of all of them:
Your your credit report doesn't matter to us!

If you OWN real estate and want IMMEDIATE cash to spend ANY way you like, or simply wish to LOWER your payments by a third or more, here is the deal we can offer you NOW (hurry, this deal will expire TONIGHT):

$270,000+ loan

Well, perhaps the news of the worldwide credit crunch crisis hasn't reached Paraguay yet (I like to imagine that Rigoberto hails from there), so this true financial helper shall be forgiven.

Thank you all, my spammer friends.

Praying for the angels

I forget to pray for the angels
and then the angels forget to pray for us.
– Leonard Cohen ("So Long, Marianne")

Now would the angels really do that?

If biblical and other sources are correct, there is a finite, rather small number of angels. They must be very powerful to remember each one of us. And they must be in all places at all times.
