Like, um, seriously weird in a cosmic sense.

So, my school e-mail address, which is both a really easy target for dictionary spam direected at my alma mater's domain, and probably was trawled up by any number of web spiders or compiled onto naughty lists because I didn't really udertand that free porn in your inbox is not exactly free, has been getting some weird shit the last couple of days.

I deleted some of the messages, but I kept some others and they all seem to have one thing in common. Well, two things. The first is that there are no links, or embedded images, or anything even for sale, at least as far as I can discern.

The secnd thing is that they are all in German. This is fucking strange. What I don't particularly understand is why anyone would bother. It's like noncommerial spam, which makes even less sensce than commercial spam does.

Furthermore, the content is fucking weird. It appears to be some kind of finger-wagging remonstration about the Allied fire-bombing of Dresden during WWII. Admittedly a nasty affair, but what are they going to prove by sending this dusty missive out into the world now?

It makes me wonder if maybe I'm missing something? If they were trying to point out some kind of neo-nazi counterpoint to the Holocaust remembrance ceremonies, they would have A)been guilty of incredibly poor taste, all things considered...there is just no comparison, and B)they are kind of a few weeks late.

But maybe toying with that idea for a second, we would be saying that the origin of this message, forged headers and fake return addresses and all, is in fact a bunch of Germans who apparently belive the human race failed to adequately punish Allied air commanders for the horror inflicted upon the civillian inhabitants of Dresden.

I think of the Luftwaffe pilots who dropped bombs on London during the Battle of Britain and I am not all that sympathetic. War is hell.

I like to laugh at Oklahoma in general, but this is just far, far too much.

Wronged by BMG Music Service?

A class action lawsuit was settled against BMG for their cryptic "shipping and handling" fees. If you were ever a member you can download the claim form here....that is, if you "fulfilled you obligation by buying one CD at regular price" (which at the time must have been like $30,000. The other ones were like $.01.

Anyway, you can get the claim form if you want two cds at 75% off and free shipping.

This Slashdot article has interesting/useful responses to the "boss gives you shit about leaving" problem. This post, though, had me in hysterics.

Requesting Immediate Evacuation from Noamistan by Helicopter

If anyone has a helicopter that could evac me from Noamistan ASAP, that would be great. It's a hot LZ though.
