Given the chance, I'm not sure I'd want to know that.

Title of spam: Hey bro, check out the huge sale these guys are offering

And there was no link to anything.  These spammers are getting lazy, they're just spamming now without even including a way to steal your money.

Not really spam, but one of those humoruos notes being passed around.

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition , Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3 , Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6 I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please help!

Thanks,
Troubled User.

Dear Troubled User:

This is a very common problem that men complain about. Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0 . It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed. You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony-Child Support.

I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.

The best course of action is to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway.

Wife 10 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2. However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5. Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0 !

WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

Best of luck,

Tech Support

So 42, when are you getting wife 1.0? I've been waiting for six years for you to upgrade. Have you even gotten girlfriend 7.0?

I use to like No Life 3.2 but a little over six years ago, I found Hot Babe 10.0!  Shortly thereafter, I upgraded to Wife 1.0 and now I would never consider going back to No Life 3.2. In fact, after adding Child 1.0 and Child 2.0, I don't think I can ever go back to No Life 3.2.

This one is so creative, I just have to share.

Quote
Physics attempts to describe the natural world by the application of
the scientific method. In contrast, natural philosophy, its counterpart
which had also been called "physics" (earlier physike) from classical
times up to at least the separation of physics from philosophy as a
positive science in the 19th century, is the study of the changing world by
philosophy. Mixed questions, of which solutions can be attempted
through the applications of both disciplines (e.g. the divisibility of the
atom) can involve natural philosophy in physics (the science) and vice
versa.

You know if you have a mouse wheel you can punch it into the mouse (it's a button...) and that will pop up a little scrolling icon majigger instead of your curser.  It's an arrow up over a dot over an arrow down in a white circle.  Then if you move the mouse up, the page will scroll up, and if you move the mouse down, it'll scroll down...  Is that what you were asking about?

I have over-ridden that in favor of using the wheel button as a "paste" since that default functionality is uselessly redundant. "Paste," however, is awesome.

I am sick and tired of the "Welcome to the Ultimate Pharmacy" e-mails I get at five-minute intervals, and I am sick and tired of Microsoft Office Outlook 2003's useless "Rules" fuction that, even though I told it to permanently delete any and all "Welcome to the Ultimate Pharmacy"-body e-mails that arrive, still lets them into my inbox. Curse you, Ultimate Pharmacy. Curse you, Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. (And yes, as far as I can tell, my rule is set up just fine. If I use "Run Rules Now" it zaps all the Ultimate Pharmacy e-mails, but it's supposed to freaking apply to every single e-mail that freaking arrives, not just the ones I freaking manually tell it to apply to, freaking!)

It would be part of his sophisticated British humour. He'd be mocking our American slang and sublimely hinting at how much better he is because he knows "real" English, and all with one word.
