Best Spam Comment Ever?

Since the advent of word verification on comments, I still occasionally get spam, and it would seem that some fool is actually placing these manually, on at a time, often on two-year-old posts.  Some appear to have come from China and some from Korea, though I have no doubt this is equal opportunity spam--any idiot on the planet can do it.

Some just say something like:  "Great post!  I am also interested in GOLD Jewelry," or whatever.  Some have a whole paragraph of nonsense.  Today, though, I got this on a two-year-old post (dude, nobody reads those except through Google refs that don't justify your effort, believe me):

Ancient Greek philosophy was divided into three sciences: physics, ethics, and logic. This division is perfectly suitable to the nature of the thing; and the only improvement that can be made in it is to add the principle on which it is based, so that we may both satisfy ourselves of its completeness, and also be able to determine correctly the necessary subdivisions. All rational knowledge is either material or formal: the former considers some object, the latter is concerned only with the form of the understanding and of the reason itself, and with the universal laws of thought in general without distinction of its objects.  Formal philosophy is called logic. Material philosophy, however, has to do with determinate objects and the laws to which they are subject, is again twofold; for these laws are either laws of nature or of freedom.  The science of the former is physics, that of the latter, ethics; they are also called natural philosophy and moral philosophy respectively.

 Educational spam; hallelujah!
