Mailnater - a new email address, whenever, without signing-up

Or just a new game like Google Whack (which is addictive)??
Ok, i've just came across Mailinator which is an odd service but handy. If you dont know what it is then in their words let me tell you.

"Mailinator is a new kind of mail service. The biggest difference is that you don't need to sign up. Any email name you can think of already exists at mailinator.com. Want goofy@mailinator.com? You got it. Want to be superguy? Happyjoe? fredinpants? No problem. They all already exist just waiting for you to check your mail."

So thats it. You're at a party you don't want to give out your email address so you give out "vodkadrinker@mailinator.com". Go home type in the address and check. Now im sure you can all see the security issue here with common names like andy@mailinator.com, but this service isnt meant for "actual" webmail use, from their FAQ:

This sounds pretty insecure. What if I send important emails with sensitive super-secret information in them to mailinator?
Then you are a stupid-head. That isn't what this is for.

So upon figuring this out whats the first thing to do? Check the emails out for andy@mailinator.com of course, and then check "andyj". Now its a game. Find a name with a actual message or something in there.

Oh and if you don't know what Google Whack'ing is try this aswell and find "The one".
