Short Busers,

If you receive an email entitled "Badtimes," delete
it immediately. Do not open it. Apparently, this one
is pretty nasty. It will not only erase everything on
your hard drive, but it will also delete anything on
disks within 20 feet of your computer.

It demagnetizes the stripes on all your credit
cards. It reprograms your ATM access code, screws up
the tracking on your VCR and uses subspace field
harmonics to scratch any CD's you attempt to play.

If you drive a Chevy, it will start missing like a
Ford. It will program your phone auto dial to call
only your mother-in-law's number. This virus will mix
antifreeze into your fish tank. It will drink all
your beer.

For goodness sake, are you listening?

It will leave dirty socks on the coffee table when
you are expecting company. It will replace your
shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine, all the
while dating your current boy/girlfriend behind your
back and billing your Visa card. It will cause you to
run with scissors and throw things in a way that is
only fun when someone loses an eye.

It will rewrite your backup files, changing all
your active verbs to passive and incorporating
undetectable misspellings that grossly change the
interpretations of key sentences.

If the "Badtimes" message is opened in a Windows
95/98 environment, it will leave the toilet seat up
and leave your hair dryer plugged in dangerously close
to a full bathtub. It will not only remove the
forbidden tags from your mattresses and pillows, it
will also refill your skim milk with whole milk.


If you don't send this to 5000 people in 20 seconds
you'll fart so hard that your right leg will spasm and
shoot straight out in front of you, sending sparks
that will ignite the person nearest you.

Please Send, send, send, send, and send!
