The completely random stuff of the day
What about it? Well, it’s kinda useless. I am not speaking about the tasty meat substitute, but instead that garbage that fills up your inbox asking if you want car rentals, boob jobs or penis extensions. The only thing they provide is humour. A while back, Zodi and I were talking about spam like two kids trading bubble gum cards.
Tim: I got Increase Your Breast Size. What did you get?
Zodi: Would you like a larger penis. I’ve got ten of those.
Before the Internet, spam would fill up mail boxes just as fast. Fliers from different companies and store chains, pamphlets from political members of Parliament or the Legislative Assembly. Those still come around to mail boxes, but it’s easier to get rid of those than inbox spam. At my post office, there’s a little yellow tag on my box, which means “No fliers, please. KTHXBAI!” I only wish you could do that on your email client.
The newspaper this morning had an interesting story about a very interesting woman. The plain looking Susan Boyle knocked the socks off of the crowd at Britain’s Got Talent television show. The woman, who lives in a village twenty miles outside of Edinburgh, received a standing ovation from the crowd. Due to her talent, the Internet went nuts.
It just so happened Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were watching the episode, and then proceeded to hit Twitter with the performance. The video hit YouTube, and within less than a day, received over 5 million views. What amazed me is the audience, and even the judges, doubted her ability based on her appearance. But she stayed on stage and proceeded to wow the crowd, turning doubters into her biggest fans.
Watch her performance here, and be careful to watch the crowd’s reaction BEFORE she starts singing.
Until next time…
…keep ‘em flyin’!
