Reason #83 Why I Hate People

I just received the following email:

Look closely at this picture

The President of Argentina received this picture and called it 'junk mail'. 8 days later his son died.

Another man received this picture & immediately sent out copies. His surprise was winning the lottery.

Alberto Martinez received this picture, gave it to his secretary to make copies but she forgot to distribute it. She lost her job & he lost his family.

This picture is miraculous & sacred. Forward to at least 10 people!

I'm sorry that I'm on the emailing list of someone who would fall for this crap. I have never, ever, not even once, forwarded these types of emails. And there have been quite a few. They just piss me off.

This particular type really pisses me off. How can any Christian believe in such superstitious baloney? It is absolutely antithetical to our beliefs. God is neither going to punish nor reward you on the basis of forwarding a stupid email. More likely, He would mark a big red X by your name if you do forward it, you unfaithful idiot.

You know, even through the lowest point of my entire life it would never occur to me for one second to just go ahead and forward the email. Others in my predicament would think they'd have nothing to lose by it, so why not. Not me. I have to be true to myself, my faith and my logic. Participating in this sham, minor as it is, would make me feel like a total loser. Along with common sense, have people also lost their self-respect?

Whoever starts this shit should have their Internet access cut off, along with their arms.

OK, I just had to get that off my chest. Damn. People.

P.S. Please disregard this post if you never hear from me again...
