Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.

NFL Players with the modified gene? Ha!

How about soldiers who can run twice as far and are "more aggressive"? Try reading some of the Dorsai books by Gordon R. Dickson to see what an enhanced military could be capable of.!

Weekly Limerick

The winner of the 2003 and 2006 Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot. Seth also has a new book coming out that you should take a look at..

Boston wins the World Series, 4 straight,
Which New Englanders all think is great.
 If the Red Sox don't stop,
