    Suspicious emails: unclaimed insurance bonds, diamond-encrusted safe deposit boxes, close friends marooned in a foreign country. They pop up in our inboxes, and standard procedure is to delete on sight. But what happens when you reply? Follow along as writer and comedian James Veitch narrates a hilarious, months-long exchange with a spammer who offered to cut him in on a hot deal.
    TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

Glittery Mess So? 1970s and 80s comedy was real comedy - not the politically motivated crap that passes for it now. On a more specific point: I 'get' what Veitch is saying and doing - it's true, just without being comedic.

Philip Lancaster “is this what millennials find funny” just remember that when you were in college or something. You found something to be super funny while the generation now would hate it.
