Spam Catch of the Day: things get eerie

Filed under: Geek,Humor,Metalog — apotheon @ 11:46

Yea, verily, the spammers are definitely beginning to target their pseudo-content more accurately. This is what I found in the spam filter today:

You’ve been programming too long when:

  • When you are counting objects, you go “0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D…”.

  • When asked about a bus schedule, you wonder if it is 16 or 32 bits.

  • When your wife says “If you don’t turn off that darn machine and come to bed,then I am going to divorce you!”, and you chastise her for for omitting the else clause.

  • When you are reading a book and look for the space bar to get to the next page.

  • When you look for your car keys using: “grep keys /dev/pockets”

  • When after fooling around all day with routers etc, you pick up the phone and start dialing an IP number.

  • When you get in the elevator and double-press the button for the floor you want.

  • When not only do you check your email more often than your paper mail, but you remember your network address faster than your postal one.

  • When you dream in 256 pallettes of 256 colors.

There were a few other jokes in spam over the last couple days or so, but they mostly involved gynecologists, pregnancy, and crass references to bodily functions in general. I’ll just let those disappear without further comment.


  1. That’s hitting close to home. Pretty funny.

  2. Yeah . . . that’s what I thought was eerie about it. It’s like the guy knows me, or something.
