I have this mail folder, 'Assimilate'. It predates my use of IMAP. For that matter, it predates my use of POP. It's from back when I still used mail to read mail.

I'm going thru some of the stuff I'd collected in it.

I will now subject you to select items:

We can't celebrate the old pagan holidays because no one really knows about
them. Oh well, fun to invent something anyway. 'I practice religion the same
way my ancestors 10,000 years ago did: I make it up.'

Top 5 Reasons for Adam to Not Be Depressed.

5. His head isn't on fire.
4. The voices in his head aren't all named Izden.
3. He has us despite the fact that we're not always here.
2. Pringles exist.
And last, but certainly not least....
1. Because his name isn't 'Bobo' and he doesn't rape nuns!

Yeah, we all love Martian-poo. He's just one big gooshy pile of
wonderluscious goobericity.
