I didn't even get to know his name!

And more disturbingly? Someone stole my sperm sometime in the past 5 years and are raising an army of cloned supersoldiers to fight terrorists!

As the original DNA host I think its my time to start taking ass and kicking names.

While this is interesting, the thread title was like a kick in the stomach. Would you mind changing it, please? It's not the sort of thing that fits to a joke.

Setting aside the dark horribleness of this email because it is obvious and needs not to be discussed, it's actually quite amusing that the UN has an @live address.

Yeah, the title was pretty upsetting until I saw who posted the thread.

Looks like a scam to me. An extremely nasty one at that.
