I regularly check out the spam emails just to see what's in store. I've noticed that lately most of the spam emails have been about viagra. Has anyone else notice this trend? Even the spam threads on this forum were about viagra.
Any guess as to why the sudden surge in viagra spam?

I'm trying to see things your way, but I can't put my head that far up my ass.

The scientist in me wants to erect a theory only after examining firm evidence of the phenomenon; unfortunately he's busy doing something else right now and the sociology of email spam is too hard a subject for me to tackle.

Re: no viagra emails
It's the season for that kind of thing... Spring, summer, everyone is out readying themselves for vacations and stuff... Now is the time to give everyone e-mails about penis stuff because at this point the most people might respond to them because they have plans to go places where they might be in use of some chemical help for their wiener.
Or something like that

Reminds me of one of my favorite cartoons from the New Yorker.
A guy is sitting at his computer typing. The caption reads:
"Dear Sir: I thank you for your concern, but I am quite satisfied with the size of my penis."

Wal-Mart worker dies after crowd rushes store
Those of you who don't know very well, I'm anti-materialism (in the economic sense). Another name for someone like me is "cheap bastard". I hate buying crap I don't need. I am absolutely against our current social dependency on shopping. I've been saying for years that the dependency on materialism and shopping needs that our culture has evolved into have made people heartless. That said, I TOLD YOU SO!
Wal-Mart worker dies after crowd rushes store
quote:
NEW YORK - A Wal-Mart worker was killed Friday when "out-of-control" shoppers desperate for bargains broke down the doors at a 5 a.m. sale. Other workers were trampled as they tried to rescue the man, and customers shouted angrily and kept shopping when store officials said they were closing because of the death, police and witnesses said.
At least four other people, including a woman who was eight months pregnant, were taken to hospitals for observation or minor injuries, and the store in Valley Stream on Long Island closed for several hours before reopening.
Shoppers stepped over the man on the ground and streamed into the store. When told to leave, they complained that they had been in line since Thursday morning.
Nassau police said about 2,000 people were gathered outside the store doors at the mall about 20 miles east of Manhattan. The impatient crowd knocked the man, identified by police as Jdimytai Damour of Queens, to the ground as he opened the doors, leaving a metal portion of the frame crumpled like an accordion.
"This crowd was out of control," said Nassau police spokesman Lt. Michael Fleming. He described the scene as "utter chaos."
Dozens of store employees trying to fight their way out to help Damour were also getting trampled by the crowd, Fleming said.
Items on sale at the store included a Samsung 50-inch Plasma HDTV for $798, a Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum for $28, a Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera for $69 and DVDs such as "The Incredible Hulk" for $9.
Criminal charges possible
Damour, 34, was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead about 6 a.m., police said. The exact cause of death has not been determined.
A 28-year-old pregnant woman was taken to a hospital, where she and the baby were reported to be OK, said police Sgt. Anthony Repalone.
Police said criminal charges were possible in the case, but Fleming said it would be difficult to identify individual shoppers. Authorities were reviewing surveillance video.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., based in Bentonville, Ark., called the incident a "tragic situation" and said the employee came from a temporary agency and was doing maintenance work at the store.
"The safety and security of our customers and associates is our top priority," said Dan Fogleman, a company spokesman. "At this point, facts are still being assembled and we are working closely with the Nassau County Police as they investigate what occurred."
Kimberly Cribbs, who witnessed the stampede, said shoppers were acting like "savages."
"When they were saying they had to leave, that an employee got killed, people were yelling 'I've been on line since yesterday morning,'" she said. "They kept shopping."
Shoppers around the country line up early outside stores on the day after Thanksgiving in the annual bargain-hunting ritual known as Black Friday. It got that name because it has historically been the day when stores broke into profitability for the full year.

I don't see how this is a problem for evolution. If these individuals can't reproduce, there gense will simply dissapear from the species. Where's the problem here?

It is a scientific fact, old men need viagra because they have to have sex with old ladies. When you are young the chics are still hot.
I can cite peer-reviewed papers supporting this theory.

This question betrays a deep misunderstanding of evolution. It suggests that you think evolution has some direction. It doesn't.
Evolution is about adaptation to the environment. Sometimes the environment tends to support change of one type, such as for more fur. Sometimes it supports change of the opposite type, such as for less fur. But there is no such thing as a "backward step."
