So tomorrow this Large Hadron Collider thing kicks off, and it’s bound to create a black hole that annihilates Earth and the rest of the solar system. For nihilists, annihilation must be pretty exciting. For the rest of us, it might kinda suck. Oh well.
In other news, I received an interesting random spam(?) message today:

I’m puzzled. Maybe someone legitimately meant to send this to someone else? It almost reads like it could be the sort of thing meant to scare uptight xenophobes into thinking that Nicaraguans are trying to steal the election, but that really wouldn’t make any sense at all. Everyone knows that Nicaraguans hate democracy. Oh well.
By the way, I’m giving up on the spam blog. I simply don’t have time. Sorry for all of you who’d hoped that the Internet would reveal the Ultimate Truth by way of spam messages to me. What can I say; not everyone is cut out to deliver salvation.
