SPAM, carwash

I received 1,900 SPAM e-mails today between my two addresses. It gets filtered out, mostly, but not enough. Most of it was that stupid virus being sent everywhere. Where does that come from?

One e-mail didn't get filtered out was from a "Christian Debt Relief" company. How does that work? "God wants us to offer incredibly high-interest loans to help His followers consolidate credit card bills into loan-shark mammoths they'll never pay off. Oh, and He wants us to SPAM people about them, too."

I know the Bible doesn't say anything about sending unsolicited e-mail but come on here.

In other news, doesn't superbowl pregame start tonight?

In other other news, it's very cold outside. I washed my car last night and all my locks froze. It's one of those things that seems like a really good idea at the time. I mean, I hate seeing road salt on my car, it's disgusting, and there was all this Kansas winter grime on it. Kansas doesn't usually stay below freezing very long so our winters are a cycle of freezing, thawing, slushing and mudding... it's like, filth season or something. So my car was dirty so I washed it, and now I'm going to have to use my keyless entry for the next week. Yes, I do have an engineering degree and could have figured this out but there were lots of people washing their cars, I figured, "What's the worst that can happen?"
