Fw: Look at this closely

The President of Argentina received this picture and called it 'junk mail', 8 days later his son died. A man received this picture & immediately sent out copies..his surprise was winning the lottery. Alberto Martinez received this picture, gave it 2 his secretary 2 make copies but they forgot 2 distribute: she lost her job & he lost his family. This picture is miraculous & sacred. Forward to 1O people.

...and if you believe that by forwarding this "miraculous" picture on to ten people will result in untold riches for you & only you (yes, you are very self-absorbed & greedy), then I have this great bridge to sell you in San Francisco. Send me money immediately....

This has to be a fix. Right? Someone like me or you sitting around one day thinking, "I wonder how ridiculous I am make an e-mail that I will then send to my my right-wing buddies that they will in turn send to everyone on their address list?"

This can't be real. Can it? Though it was forwarded to MRWD by one of our most entertaining and reliable sources of FWDs.

Pascal's Wager even more dumbed down.

The only thing missing is the grasping for money.

Dear Dave -

No, this is actual FACT for these folks, but I mean really, this kinda stuff has been "chain-mailed" around forever.

I am old enough to recall receiving dumb stuff like this in snail-mail, where you were actually expected to copy out a letter (not a picture), usually by hand (I am soooo very old that I pre-date photocopiers, I shudder to admit), and buy stamps (admittedly much cheaper then, but still) and send out said letter to at least 10 of your "friends."

Often you were supposed to ALSO pay to send a dollar to 10 prior people on a list with the idea being that within some amount of days YOU would end up with $100s of dollars (well, I am in a rocking chair; I warned you, so $100s back then was like $1000s now). And as well, the beneficent 'god' would smile down upon you if you did this, but if you didn't do it, then the nasty god would smite you & yours in some dreadful way.

Even in my youth, I was like: yeah, right!

So, this is just part of a long-standing, time-honored tradition of dumb-os buying into something teh stoooped...

There is a reason why we also receive those e-mails from Nigeria asking us for our bank account numbers: bc it works!!! It was PT Barnum who said: there's a sucker born every minute. And he wasn't wrong.

Live & learn... there is no bottom to the dumbness, sadly.
