    I think I must have gotten every Obama paranoia email that was in circulation from my parents, and I generally get most of the "time for jesus" and all the "christian faith is under attack" emails. I do get some gems now and again, though.

    here's one:

    The only political email I've gotten from my mom was a few months back, it was an email that was all "TESTIMONIAL FROM AN ALASKAN CITIZEN AS TO WHY SARAH PALIN IS TERRIBLE"

    That's funny since Islam didn't even exist when the Book of Revelations was written.

    oh yeah... i actually chided my parents, cuz they're actually pretty well versed in scripture, but i guess when you are so willing to believe something, you just accept it as truth and dont check the facts.

    edit: whoa, that statement ran deeper than i originally intended it to

    That's how God wants it to go down.

    So she applies for a passport but is upset they ask for her birthdate?
    Also she mentions the census - no, those are anonymous. Unless she's talking about some Canadian census, in which case who gives a fuck. Canada sucks.

    My dad rarely sends me stuff via e-mail, but when he does, it's always pretty awesome.

    He's got a good sense of humor that is apparently quite similar to my own!

    At the end of the census there's a secret word.

    They go around asking people what the secret word is, and if you can't answer you're thrown in jail.

    The US Census is also mandatory. I don't know what the penalty is for not returning it, maybe not much, but it is required.

    My uncle forwards the dreck he gets from Michael Moore's mailing list to me, and ccs pretty much the whole family.

    So not only do I have to read it, I have to then reply all and make sure everyone knows how retarded it is. I don't want my sister picking up on it through osmosis or some shit.

    The only family I have email addresses for are my parents. I just call or text if I need to talk to my sister. My wife used to send me stuff but she finally realized that I already share a hive mind with the internet, functioning as a sort of savant, a living reference engine of sorts.

    Beavotron has some harsh words for all you blue-collared email-writers out there. What are you doing writing your ignorant emails in that stupid font in the first place? You should probably be in a factory or a prison somewhere.

    Back when the intertron was a new thing for most people (ie 1998-99) I used to get all kinds of stupid spam shit from my family but even they have wised up by now.

    Otoh, my grandfather lived to be almost 97 and used email regularly right up until he died. His favorite thing to do was send you an email and then call you on the phone 5 minutes later to ask "did you get my email"? The awesomenes of this was enhanced by the fact that he lived on the east coast and would call us here on the west coast at 5 am..... HIS time. I'll let you do the math on that one.

    so when I lived at home my mom would pop into my room, talk to me, leave, pop back in, be like "oh i forgot that..." and say something else, maybe doing this three or four times. it was annoying, but whatever, she's scatter-brained, it's fine.

    when I started leaving the house to hang out with my friends or living with my dad or whatever the fuck, she started doing the same thing with calls. she would call me, we'd talk for ten minutes, she would call me back and be like "OH I FORGOT THAT..." It only took twenty or twenty-five times of her doing this for me to get pretty annoyed, and now if she calls back within ten minutes of us hanging up, whatever, she can leave a message, she just has information for me anyway.

    now that I'm at college she e-mails me big long e-mails, then e-mails me three minutes later with the tagline "One more thing...", even doing this two or three times. Sometimes she e-mails me something that ends with "I'm going to look up bus prices and times" and e-mails back five minutes later saying "ok so the bus leaves now and now and costs this much." This doesn't happen once in a while. This happens ALWAYS.

    This is THE MOST FUCKING ANNOYING THING to me. I come home to five or six e-mails. This isn't like leaving the room and realizing you forgot to bring something up - it's fucking TEXT, sent over the internet. You can consolidate your thoughts before you send me an e-mail. If once in a while you go "oh I left something out" that's fine, but I feel like my mom e-mails me every time she thinks of something instead of going "hey maybe I'll just e-mail him tonight with everything I think of between now and then" or "hey I need to remind my son of something why don't I write a reminder or start a list or something"

    I dunno. It bugs me.

    I accidentally emailed my aunt from my regular email address. So now she has it saved, and I get ALL of her forwards. She's new to the internet and thus thinks they're all hilarious and also that I need to know about all these Virus alerts.
    Thank god for gmail labels.
