the lost generation

all know spam.
spam has been with us since the 1980s.

If you have an email account, you know spam.

More importantly, you know spam filters - junk mail folders etc...

But what about the 21 year old girl, who met a guy at a bar, they got along REALLY well.

The 21 year old girl got the guys email address and proceeded to send him the following message:

Subject: Would love to meet you again!
Hey, this is Samantha, would love to meet again, feeling horny and fantasizing about you

This email has a snowball's chance in hell to get through the email filters, specially if sent from generic email account like yahoo/hotmail.

So let us do some numbers here, pure guesswork.

this has happened 200.000 times.
Let's say 0.1% of those emails would have resulted in pregnancy (either through a relationship or just one(+) night stand)

That is 200 people.

200 people that do not exist today because of spam.
