By the way, I'm not a fan of spam. I won't sell your contact info, and I will only email you a few times a year. That's all I've got time for, really. So sign up to become one of my minons[**] by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of "I want to join your minions."
Or, if being on a mailing list is too much commitment (sigh), you can also join the Strange Quark Facebook Fan Page.
[*] Free to me, not to you. In other words, you will be authorized to make your own membership card and print it out, as long as it doesn't make any unreasonable claims or have anything that would embarass me or hurt my exhalted reputation.
[**] Just to be clear, in case you didn't get the joke, you won't really be my minions. I don't expect you to do anything for me - this is really just a mailing list. I thought "minions" sounded funny. And it is. Laugh, I command you!
