Charlie Stross: February 2005 Archives

Strange Spam of the Day

[Cheesy Raelian graphics]Normally I get 200-250 spams per day. And they get filtered out and deleted. But before they're deleted, I glance at the From: and Subject: lines, just in case that offer of a million dollars is coming from my agent instead of a fly-by-night low-life.

This isn't worth a million dollars, but it's definitely priceless in Fortean terms Iranian Raelian spam. Complete with pyramids, Greys, flying saucers, and some sort of come-on in Arabic script (presumably Farsi, which -- not unusually -- I can't read).

Anyone willing to volunteer a translation? (Warning: the spam is included in the extended entry below as inline images -- about 160Kb.)
