This script will write itself. A spammer obsessed with time travel - not with the usual greed, leading to the endless porn and penis-enlargement mail onslaught - has sent out over 100 million email messages in earnest search for time travel machinery, as reported by wired news. Some people took the bait and started sending mock time travel devices to him, but he is not looking for mock time travel devices but for real ones.
The facts of the spammers life would make excellent movie material. And a fascinating read.
