Usually, a trip into the Junk email folder is good only for a chuckle at the random-string-of-words-generated-by-a-Chinese-computer-and-translated-into-English-by-a-Hausa-smartphone subject lines before deleting. This week, however, it was the "sender" that caught my eye upon receiving an email for "Innovative anti-virals" from one "Adrick Black." Adrick Black! Isn't that, like, the coolest name ever? It's like a Harry Potter character or a Victorian detective or something. It tickles me every time I see it; I actually kept it for three days just to revel in the wonder of its majesty. Thanks, spam email robot!
