Not lazy. Clever like a fox.

The first message in a spamscam is facepalmingly stupid because anyone with the minimum brain power needed to recognize it as bogus would catch on before sending money even if the first message was more plausible. Spammers don't want to waste their own time engaging with people who figure it out mid-way and back out.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
