i can’t say i’m not impressed by the advances of email scammers, they are now adding actuality flavors to their emails; nice touch guys nice touch. but in future try to use the name of someone who isn’t presumed dead.
my sister got the following email a couple of days ago, no comment 🙂
My names are Saif Al Islam Ghadaffi, the son of the present president of Libya.
I am contacting for an urgent assistance. As you can read and see in the media, my family is presently undergoing tough time in the hand of the masses due to his long stay in power as the president of Libya for over 40 years now. Although there is no way you can satisfy human being, my father has done so many things to better the life of our people and unfortunately they never appreciated his effort.
The International community has reached a resolution for immediate seizure of our assets both in US and the UK.
I want to request your humble assistance to receive a total sum of $45.5 million US dollars which we have succeeded in moving the cash to an undisclosed Area.
You will receive this fund directly and keep in a safe keep while I shall come down to meet you for necessary investment as may be suggested by you. You should kindly let me know your percentage as we will be ready to share whatever percentage for your assistance.
Please me on my private email address.
Saif Al Islam Ghadaffi
what is it with ousted leaders and mysterious illnesses? last I heard of Tusinia’s Ben Ali was that he was in a coma………….nor Egypt’s Moubarak is apparently in intensive care after a heart attack.
Libya’s Gaddafi and Yemen’s Saleh should be quick before the list of “natural” disappearance illnesses runs out (disappearance illness= a grave illness which would result in the general public believing you are no longer fit to give explanations, speak or be judged……..and it also helps you instantaneously disappear from everyone’s eyes and memory leaving you with a long happy peaceful life on a Caribbean island, it sometimes even has the bonus that some might feel sorry for you and decide to speak well of you – this of course depends on how many friends you have on facebook)
anyyyhoooowwww…….so far in the list coma and heart attack have both been taken, the likes of Gaddafi anf Saleh better be quick because the list isn’t too long and I think Ivory Coast’s Gbagbo already has his eye on one of these DIs (disappearance illness). The choices they have left are:
– late stage cancer (this one takes a little more ahead planning)
– sudden death (a little more drastic and it will be more expensive as you will have to arrange and pay for a funeral service – even if no one attends- complete with fake tomb. but at least you are safe that no one will have the bright idea to come look for you)
– old school style contagious disease (Malaria, the Plague, Ebola, Cholera…etc) (you will get more sympathy even from people who really hate you but very risky as the media might suddenly run out of valuable news material and decide it is time to do an “old president illness update” story where they’ll start hunting you down to know how the illness affected you and have you been cured of have you died); if you decide however to go for the acute version of these diseases then you will have intense sympathy and intense media coverage but you can peacefully and quickly “die” (which leads to the same expenses as with sudden death)
only thing i can say to the already sick 2 presidents is salamtak, get well soon
so its official, the posession and cultivatio of marijuana is still illegal in the US state of California. The bill they tried to pass on for the legalisation was named Proposition 19 (hense the post title).
the vote collected a 45% yes which is huge, they said they will try it again in 2012 (Shwarzi voted no although he was for the yes a while ago). now the post is not about the vote or the legalisation, its about this funny series of ads i found on dear Youtube asking people to vote yes
spray on clothes, yeah you read it right spray on clothes.
for my last post of today i thought i’d send you something that would make you a little less ignorant, spray on fabric has been invented. Scientist Paul Luckman and fashion designer Manel Torres ombined their knowledge to create this great novelty made from a mixture of cotton fibers, some sort of plastic and a solvent.
maybe this is the solution to clothe waste and to never having enough space in your wardrobe, imagine instead of having to stack 15 white t-shirts you can just have 2 bottles of spray and then re-spray to create different t-shirt styles everyday.
it is washable, re-usable and can create both summer and winter clothes. I can’t wait to have this in a store
