Asimov spam

I'm feeling very cranky today, but rather than posting about my job, or my ribs, or the heat, or the chimp in the White House, I figured I'd just mention some of the spam I've been getting lately.

A lot of it has had words like "Trantor" and "Hari Seldon" and "Psychohistory." Is nothing sacred? Now these idiots have to fill my bulk mail folders with lines from Isaac Asimov's Foundation series? That was one of my favorite series ever in science fiction, and now it somehow feels dirty.

Ok, not really...it actually kind of made me laugh the first time I saw it. Do they really think that someone is going to see "Hari Seldon" and decide to open their stupid e-mails?

Alas, how many of the great unwashed out there would even get the reference? Thanks for reminding me it's about time to reread Foundation.
