Spammers Must Die

Actually had intentions of updating this earlier, but lo, my internet account went out and I was left for several days without internet until I biked up to the library in the blistering May heat (twice) to get my account sorted out. But I'm back, and now that I can get online again, life is good. Well it was good, until i looked in my joshcohen.com e-mail box to see that I received over 3000 e-mails in the last three days. No, that was not a typo, the actual number is probably closer to 4000 than 3000...fucking spammers. I'm not quite sure what they think they will get from me when they send 15 copies of "LOSE 10 POUNDS IN 10 DAYS" or 50 copies of "real looking fake rolexs available here" or fucking 500 copies from "capital advisor" "capital mentor" "money guide" "treasures guide" and "wealth consultant" with no subject. All I know is that I hope there is a special place in hell for spammers where they are eternally sodomized by porcupines and forced to drink bull semen while bathing in a vat of stomach acid. Yes, I am angry, if i ever meet this guy "wealth consultant" or one of these viagra pushers I will castrate them while shoving a bottle of viagra down their throat.

No crazy adventures to report right now...I think i'm done seething about the spammers. This abroad program is starting to wind to a close, and everyone is incredibly burnt out. There are several people that are so burnt out that they are considering dropping chinese completely. The requirements here really are pretty rediculous...as an abroad program, the contents should be more about us experiencing China and having time to travel, not so much about trying to shove as much chinese down our throats in 4 months so that we are constantly tired and every weekend just want to sit around and relax as opposed to going out and exploring. I haven't had as much of a problem as some people, because I just rejected some of these requirements, but possibly at the sacrifice of a significant drop in GPA...don't have any regrets about that. The people here have been great though, if not for that I wouldn't be able to take it most of the time. Right now, I'm trying to enjoy the last few weeks as much as possible, and am looking forward to the program ending and living in Shanghai this summer.

Can't think about anything else particularly interesting or relevant to write, so I'll just leave it at that for now.
