I Now Read All My Spam

Why do I now read all my spam?  Not only because I find a lot of it funny; now I read it because I actually learned something today.

I’m embarrassed to say that I learned something interesting from the following spam note:

Utterly indited articles, thanks for selective information. “The earth was made round so we would not see too far down the road.” by Karen Blixen.

First, I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t know who Karen Blixen was.  Second, I liked the quote so I looked her up to see if she was fictional – again very embarrassed to find that she rocks, and I had no clue.  I have to start reading works other than business books and military sci-fi.

I also received a spam today that read:

I  believe  this  web site  has  got  some  really excellent  info  for everyone. “He is able who thinks he is able.”  by Buddha.

I guess there’s hope and meaning in spam after all.  I feel optimistic about the future.
