From FARK.com: Some of the strangeness found on Google Earth. Here's the biggest insect ever, explained here.
Had to deal with some spam in my Verizon inbox this evening (from domain vms045.mailsrvcs.net). That got me reading Rick's spam digest where he explains that the empty eMails I'm receiving are effectively the result of "ping" requests to determine if our cherished eMail addresses exist. So if there are empty eMails in your inbox, tough, you've already been pinged and your address is now known to the spammers. Once they know you exist you might get eMails with strange wording; that's to defeat the Bayesian filters which are improving.
