We are so far advanced from where we were 10,000 or more years ago. We are such badasses! Just to think, not that long ago, we were little more than naked, nomadic semi-animals who spent the majority of their time looking for food.
Now, however, we have GROWN AND EVOLVED. Look at US! See what we have evolved into:
Today I received an e-mail. It was spam, just like the other 412 e-mails that I received in the last 15 minutes (it now takes a measurable amount of time for a person to “sift” out real e-mails from the spam). This particular e-mail caught my attention because of the bright colors (because I’m a recovering 20th century consumer) and when I read it, it really had an impact. At the end of this post there is a screen shot of the e-mail message. Just in case the text is too small and you can’t make it out well, the e-mail reads as follows:
Hey frank (then my email address which I blacked out)
Use this information to Blackmail Anyone You Know
Ever wished you could get back at someone by uncovering dirty information?
If they have a speck of dirt under their fingernails, we’ll find it and provide it to you. Find out background information on anyone in just minutes (arrests, past marriages/felony)
Get the Dirty on Anyone Here (in the green button)
This is what we have evolved into? This is the best we have?
Sometimes, we suck, big time.
(PS, in case the author of the e-mail is reading this: Get a life!!)
