I got the best junk e-mail today. "New Microsoft technology visibly reduces spam".
Spam in this case not referring to luncheon meat, but the network abuse, particularly massive junk e-mail.
Yup. Microsoft, that evil giant mega-corporation bend on world domination, is hawking it's anti-junk e-mail MSN 8 Internet Services with, you guessed it, junk e-mail.
Now, I have three e-mail accounts, my top-secret home account, my very public yahoo account, and work. Somehow, "they" have gotten my work account, and every week I get dozens of random spam messages. I mean, they're all across the map. Yet, somehow they're all distinctly American. Check it out:

Would you like to regain a youthful vigor for life?
Are you feeling old and not yet 40? Are you tired, run down and suffering from

libido? When you passed 30 did a "spare tire" surround your midriff that you can't

Eat pizza, watch TV ... and lose 22 pounds?!
If you're like me, you've tried EVERYTHING to lose
weight. I know how you feel - the special diets,
miracle pills, and fancy exercise equipment never helped
me lose a pound either. It seemed like the harder I tried,
the bigger I got, until I heard about a product called
Power Diet Plus.
You're probably thinking to yourself, "Oh geez, not another
miracle diet pill!" Like you, I was skeptical at first, but
my sister swore it helped her lose 23 pounds in just two weeks,
so I told her I'd give it a shot. I mean, there was nothing
to lose except a lot of weight! Let me tell you, it was
the best decision I've ever made. Period. Six months later,
as I'm writing this message to you, I've gone from 355 pounds
to 210 pounds, and I haven't changed my exercise routine or diet
at all. Yes, I still eat pizza, and lots of it!
I was so happy with the results that I contacted the manufacturer
and got permission to resell it - at a BIG discount. I want
to help other people lose weight like I did, because it
does so much for your self-esteem, not to mention your health.
I give you my personal pledge that Power Diet Plus
absolutely WILL WORK FOR YOU. If it doesn't, you can return it
any time for a full refund.
If you are frustrated with trying other products, not having
any success, and just not getting the results you were promised,
then I recommend the only product that worked for me - POWER DIET
You're probably asking yourself, "Ok, so how does this stuff
Power Diet Plus contains Lipotropic fat burners which are
scientifically proven to increase metabolism and cause rapid
weight loss. No "hocus pocus" in these pills - just RESULTS, RESULTS,
Here is the bottom line ...
I can help you lose 10-15 pounds per week naturally, without
exercising and without having to eat rice cakes all day.
Just try it for one month - there's nothing to lose, and everything
to gain. You will lose weight fast - GUARANTEED. That is my
pledge to you.

quit my full time job and leave the corporate world FOREVER.

Are you looking for a solution for Weight Loss. So was I until I
found an incredible product called Thermo Phen Phen. I lost over
30 pounds the first month I used this product and ended up
losing over 100 pounds. Many people that see my before and after
pictures have a hard time believing that they are both pictures
of the same person because I look so different. You
can see my pictures for yourself by visiting one of the sites
Make cash daily from this inexpensive, one of a kind program!
I joined this program a few months ago for just $12.95!
I did nothing else and within 5 minutes,
I had a new member, 10 minutes later I had 2 more!
Best part I had their payment at the same time!
There is no form to fill out and you don't give your address or other
personal information. You go to the site and click to sign up,
this takes you to Paypal where you make a $7.00 payment to the person
who invited you to their web page. Then you make a $5.95 payment to
DALMONEY for your website and monthly ezine subscription.
That's it no other costs, BUT because this is not an MLM you get a
portion of every member that signs up after you whether you
invited them or not!
Because as soon as I signed up and made my payments 3 people joined I
got them! So I spent $12.95 but in less than 20 minutes I got back
Now this may or may not happen to you, most new members do not get
spillover that fast.
Because this is a simple to understand program that is inexpensive, it
is the easiest thing on the net to promote! When I started I got 3 free
but I have in the last several months recruited 200 more using free
NOW, let's do the math! 203 times $7.00 every month=$1421.00 (real
and it grows every month since I am recruiting about 20 new members each month,
oh yeah! I get a share of every member that is recruited by one of my recruits!
This program is not like anything you have ever seen about or heard about before.
Go to the website and read how it works, then sign up if you like it!
I thank you for your time.

Hmmmm. Actually, that last one sounds good. But I've always wanted a TiVo, the spam didn't sway me.
The rest though, it's just sad. Teeth whitening ... fast! Weight loss ... easy! Money making ... cheap! Feel younger ... simple! It's like the ideal American dream. Oh, don't forget about spying on your spouse or loved one. That's American, too.
So what does that say about me? Am I generic?
