VIRUS WARNING - FYIrideslikeagirl

Hey-
If you haven't heard, or don't make it a habit already, do not open anything with the subject "this is a new patch" or "this is a new game".

Got one yesterday in my yahoo mail and deleted it.

My IT dept just sent out a warning just now.
Yet another virus warning, please head this!Mel Erickson

WARNING!!

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 use Campy, it will start skipping like Shimano. 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 god's sake, are you listening?

It will leave dirty socks on the coffee table when you are expecting company. It will replace your chamois creme 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 tense 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 all of your mattresses and pillows, it will also refill your skim milk with whole milk.

PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WARN AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN!

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!******
