Nothing to see here
I received this spam email earlier today, and was extremely amazed by it. Its no ordinary poorly written engrish spam trying to get my creditcard info or other such nonsense, this one is special.
MaNy of the Divine PrO#Mi(seS are addr@essed to PartiCulaR chaRacters, ~oR, more corr~e ct!ly speaking, to particu(Lar @graceS. FoR example, in P^salm 25:9, the Lord declares that He wil l "guide ~iN jUdgment" the meeK; b!uT if I am out of c*ommUnion with Him, i#f I am follow&in#g *a cou#rs*e of self-wi&ll, ~if my h!Eart iS ha&uGhTy, thEn I am Not just%ifieD i n taking to m!ys*elf tHe comfor~t of !this verse. htT!p://kelDa6d.youtu Be.Com/5410.html A~gaiN, ~In JOHn 15:7, the Lord @t@ell S us, "If y~e abide in Me, and %m@y words aBIde in yoU, ye shall a#sk what ye wil$l, and it Shall Be dOnE unTo y o*U. , " But i~f I am Not in expeRiment%aL communion with Him, if H(i&s commanDs are not reguLating ^mY cond$ucT, theN my prayers Will rem@ain uNAnsw%eRed.
I like that the subject has a Re: As if the spam is in reply to me, or to somebody else. The link goes to a online blackjack playing website by the way (Tried it from school), which makes sense considering the subject line about BlackJack. What DOESN'T make sense though, is the entire fucking rest of it. Assuming someone decides to continue reading this little slice of joy, reading some bible verse, are they going to click the link? A link randomly inserted that makes no sense?! Lets assume they do, for the sake of stupidity. What do you suppose the venn diagram cross over is like between devout Christians who read bible verse spam emails and people who gamble online? I would wager its a pretty slim amount, which makes this spam meant for very specific people.
Also, there's the whole issue about the way its written... random symbols and capitalization and complete bastardization of the english language. Was that to avoid spam filters? I guess it worked, I did receive it, mind you it was packed with warnings about not viewing it or clicking anything etc etc.
So what is everyone's take on this? Other than its the most magnificently crafted piece of literature ever, and that we are lucky to receive such a blessing from the gods.
I just realized that the yellow M&M and Barney from the Flintstones sound the exact same.
The yellow M&M says "Oh, hey Red."
and Barney says "Oh, hey Fred".
Those can't be two coincidences.
Man! Dragon Age 2 sure is different from the first one huh? I feel like I should write down all the stuff I thought about it after playing it through 3 times as the different classes, so here we go!
Rachel McAdams would make a good C. Viper in a hypothetical non sucky Street Fighter movie. Ponder further.
So I have played about an hour of the new Monster Hunter game and thought I would post some initial thoughts on what I have seen of the game so far.
Also, I grabbed a bunch of screenshots while playing since that probably makes things way more interesting to read and whatnot. Prepare yourself for the glory that is 480x272!
While checking the mall *LAST WEEK* for a copy of DiRT 2 for PS3 (Vapourware apparently) some friends and I decided to check in the Walmart...
Which is where we found this sick little deal:
I haven't started yet and its 1:15am. I have two midterms tomorrow and didn't study for this one until right now, and this is what I need to know. I haven't paid attention in class at all. I'm sure I will succeed.

So I just got back from Banff (Actually it was a few hours ago, but I was tired) and I thought I would post some photos from my trip for anyone who is interested in seeing 'em. Since Banff is in the middle of the Rockie Mountains, the view is pretty amazing. We also stayed in a 4 and a half star hotel, which was gorgeous! Pictures of that later~
Before I start though, I should explain what and where Banff is (Smart readers will already have picked up on a clue or two of where it is!). Banff is a resort town, so basically a town that is based entirely around tourism more or less. Its nestled in the Canadian Rockie Mountains ( Gorgeous!) and is one of Canada's most popular tourist spots, there is always a ton of Japanese tourists visiting during the summer, and during the winter all the Australians come out to go skiing and snowboarding.
Banff is actually in one of the many national parks in the mountains, which is cool, all that unspoiled land makes for a great backdrop for photos =P What else is cool about the place... Its the second highest town in Canada? Thats pretty cool. Mountain air is refreshing!
Alright! On with some cool photos!
