Life’s Spam

Opening the administration section of this site is always entertaining. What do spammers think eh? Do they really think that Ugga boots or whatever they are are of any interest to the few folks who stop by and visit here? or do they think the readers are really interested in porn or pills? I do hope I attract a better class of reader than that!

So I get to delete all of that none sense and wonder yet again who finds the time to be bothered posting these comments? Probably they are automated but still – what a waste of time by someone.

The problem tho is that spam isn’t limited to the internet is it? Life is full of spam. It surrounds us every waking minute of the day. People trying to sell us stuff we don’t want or need. and I am not talking necessarily about advertising either but people’s conversations, activities and lifestyles. Isn’t Hollywood just life’s spam?

Problem is is that too few people (myself included) really think. Observe and then think. We just allow it to touch our souls and pollute our consciousness. I remember working at Sybase. Bob Epstein, the brains behind the technology was so focused he’d not listen to the radio, watch the TV etc. so as not to allow his mind to become polluted with none sense as he put it.

The vast majority of us are not at all focused. We are sleepers in life. And, in the words of the Prince of Darkness himself – “Life won’t wait”. Ozzy – you are quite correct. It doesn’t and it won’t.
