Firefox marked "phasers" as misspelled.

Silly spam

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

I’ve currently got 3 spam messages in my Yahoo spam box, and they’ve all got pretty hilarious senders:

Senders include ErectGrow™, FBI Director Robert Mueller II! and FROM CAPTAIN ANTHONY, AMERICAN SOLDIER

In order to be taken seriously, I always include my profession and extraneous punctuation after my name: KJ COOP! AMERICAN PROGRAMMER™

I also how I could the first one indicates the upper limit as 3+. So, 4?

"Huge selection of Manhood items"

An unfortunate computer-generated ad.

I’m not sure what “Manhood items” are, but it made me giggle.

Magic Gender is Male

Is Google trying to start a haunting legend?

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

I recently wanted to find out how long a nearby walking trail is, so I pulled up Google maps and put in directions from the approximate start to the approximate end. Although the trail “7th Ave”, the walking directions call it “Haunted Trail”:


I’ve lived in San Diego my whole life but I’ve never heard it called this. I wondered if I was missing out on some sort of thrilling ghost story, so I googled it, but all I got were results for the seasonal haunted house by the same name that takes place a few blocks further south in Balboa park. I’m not sure if Google somehow mixed these two up or if there’s a local legend I haven’t heard yet.

You can see for yourself here.

This is a screen shot from a site I visited while planning my recent trip to Europe. I can’t be sure, but I believe that kid and his scary Photoshop enhanced green eyes and frightening expression are from The Exorcist.
