What Pasta Dish are you?


You Are Fettuccine Alfredo


Compared to most people, you have rich and decadent tastes.

If you can afford something, you’ll go ahead and indulge yourself.

You are a true foodie. No food is off the table for you.

You’re the type most likely to appreciate every aspect of a five star meal.

Plenty of food is off the table for me, but that’s just cos I’m a messy eater. And I’m also a busy bunny.  Blogging is temporarily on hold till the Easter cheese is fully consumed. 
Keep sending in funny pics and stories, just be aware that they may not get published for a while.  In the mean time, knock yourselves out over at BOTS archives.

If you love email spam, you can thank Alan Ralsky. He started spamming back before anyone knew what spam was, in the late 90s. By 2001, he managed to push so much shit through the Verizon servers he shut them down, leading to a lawsuit from Verizon.

That lawsuit was settled and by 2002, Ralsky was rolling in enough dick enlargement cream cash to buy a $750,000 mansion. He continued spamming, using a database of 250 million names, charging companies to send out their shit e-mails for them. Up to 70 million a day, by his own admission.

As with all great assholes, the taint of arrogance was right around the corner, under the ballsack of stupidity. Ralsky, smug and potentially borderline retarded, did an interview with the Detroit News in which he seemed quite pleased with himself and the legal way he was doing business.

Readers didn’t find things as amusing as he did and when the interview was posted on Slashdot, some people went out of their way to find the address to his new home, which they then posted. The result was Ralsky being signed up to every hardcopy mailing campaign people could find.

Snail mail, as the kids call it, started arriving at Ralsky’s mansion by the truckload. Literally by the truckload, as tons of it was delivered to his house each and every day. Ralsky’s reaction was to complain that he was being harassed and was going to sue. This lead to massive bouts of laughter and an unprecedented level of not giving a shit. But at least the man won’t have to leave home to do his Christmas shopping.
