6. Send Long Email Messages with Huge Attachments without Asking Permission

This technique works best if the email and attachment are sent to a person you barely know or, better yet, a total stranger. Just imagine the questioning consternation of your victims (“Should I accept this file? Who is this guy!?”) as they watch a 2.2 MB file that contains nothing more than an uncompressed picture of your dog wearing sunglasses and a fedora trickle across their 28.8 connection. This trick is particularly exasperating thanks to the existence of computer viruses. Nearly everyone is aware that viruses can be transmitted via email attachments, and sending just such an attachment forces your recipients to strip precious moments from their day to run your file through a virus-scanning program.
