A user submitted email spam prank? Yup, Tyler Immaly sent in this little sucker where he was able to prank some jackass spamming for his lame anti-drug site. Here's a quote from Tyler's email to me:
"This prank doesn't have a single use of the word 'fuck', so it must be highly excellent. I apologize for using 'Pak' and 'Chooie' in the final email, but 'Chooie' was such a perfect name for a man-eating alligator that I couldn't resist."
Sounds good to me!
Your Kids Are Easy Prey For The Drug Pushers!
Recent news stories highlight the rapid increase in recreational drug use among our youth. All areas, both metropolitan and rural are infected with this life-changing epidemic. Smooth talking, charming young drug pushers are seducing grade school and older children with daily empty promises such as "how can anything that feels so good be so bad?"
Kids are DYING with their first experience. Young brains are being forever burned out and thousands are hooked on their first try. Parents and grandparents are borrowing and spending huge sums of money for rehabilitation that oftentimes doesn't work. The young drug pushers continue to make big money, most go unpunished and your child or grandchild could easily be the next victim.

National Director, Kids Against Drugs Campaign for a Drug Free America.
Thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate you taking the time out of your, no doubt, busy day to warn me about the dangers of drugs to my children. As a parent, I am very concerned about anything which might in some way harm my child. This is why we filled in the pit out back of our house and sold the alligators. I'll sure miss those guys, but we couldn't afford the danger to our son. As you can imagine, he gets into everything!
Anywhoo, the reason I am writing you today is to ask you a question about your web site and your program. I looked around and found out as much as I could, but one question I had wasn't answered. Before I go ahead and purchase your program I was wondering if you could take some more time to explain one aspect of the program to me.
I may have already said this but as a parent, I am very concerned about the well-being of my child. I was therefore very alarmed when I read that "Kids are DYING with their first experience". Does your program let us know which drugs are killing kids with their first experience? Does it explain what might cause this sort of violent reaction? Are there some drugs that Kill all kids? Or some drugs that kill, say, kids who are allergic to peanuts? Could my child be allergic to cocaine? How can I tell if a drug is safe for my child to try?
To me, this is very important information. As I new parent I want to keep myself as informed as possible about the dangers that could beset my child and as I'm sure you can imagine, this isn't the kind of question I can go to the police or the social workers about. I feel like I can't really go to anyone without making *myself* look like some sort of drug fiend.
So I'm hoping, I'm praying Michael, that your program will give me the information I need to ensure that my child is able to experiment in a safe and well informed environment.
Do you wish to know what computers will be doing in the year to come? With a sigh I shall exert the minimal effort it takes to reveal all. Feel free to print out these predictions and share them with your friends via fax.
Old mixed signals feeling a little stale? Try some new ones!
