Apparently, Nigeria has had a problem with disbursing vast fortunes to deserving recipients for many years now, but their persistence to the task at hand should be an inspiration to us all. Admittedly, the chosen task itself is not so admirable, yet is a reminder that how we choose to live out our time on the earth – our basic orientation to it and how we choose to relate to others – is a very personal decision that reflects the kind of world we perceive and want to expand upon. Our answer to the simple question of “What is our purpose here?” can have a profound impact on ourselves and well beyond ourselves. As Batman once growled, “It’s not who I am, it’s what I do that defines me.” Yet what we do comes from who we are, or often, who we choose to be. There isn’t a one of us who isn’t flawed, but our aspirations and conduct are a better indicator of us than are our self-perceptions.

    How come everyone but me gets offers like this? What’s wrong with me?

    • Two words: Clean Living. That, and the criminal element of the Internet apparently considers you to not be very gullible.

        Maybe that plus Mac has better spam filters than PCs? 😀

        • Beats me! Mac paraphernalia is all I’ve got. How much filtering is done at Google Gmail and how much is done at the Mail program level is probably the issue. The email I cited was automatically shoveled into the Junk folder, but I went in and took a look. If one’s email app doesn’t do much shoveling, then I don’t know whether to more blame the app or the carrier used.
