Science Spam January 27, 2007

I found a mail message with this subject in my Inbox today:

The new Raman spectroscopic procedure allows scientists to measure the collagen, which also affects bone strength by eliminating the spectral components of overlying tissues.

Emails like this are one reason I no longer have time to read the comics. I get all my entertainment from subject headings like this. Wow!

I just don’t get the day-trader crowd. Do these spams work? I guess I could try to follow one of these companies to see if they experience a rise because of this. If they do, does anyone else who doesn’t trust these spams take advantage of them? And are the sources of the spam just people you are trying to manipulate the stock? It must suck for the companies.

The body of the mail message, btw, is nonsensical. It talks mostly about herbal remedies. It is as if a program tried to stitch together a few paragraphs. Garbage in, garbage out.
