    If you receive an email entitled "Bedtimes", 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 strips on ALL of 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.

    It will program your phone auto dial to call only 900 numbers.

    This virus will mix antifreeze into your fish tank.

    IT WILL CAUSE YOUR TOILET TO FLUSH WHILE YOU ARE SHOWERING.

    It will drink ALL your beer.

    FOR GOD'S SAKE, ARE YOU LISTENING??

    It will leave dirty underwear on the coffee table when you are expecting company.

    It will replace your shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine.

    If the "Bedtimes" message opened in a Windows 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.

    ******* WARN AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN.*******

    And 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.

    Send to everyone.

    ...if you are a blonde, this is a joke...:nod:

    I have received warnings from computer illiterate people (AOLers) very similar to this. You can't reason with them. They claim that they are trying to help people by spamming and don't have time to understand what they are talking about.

    Call me an AOler, but what the heck does spamming or flaming mean?

    Spamming is sending out large quantities of junk email to people who don't want it. It is often illegal to do so. Flaming is simply name calling. AOLers are uninformed computer users who use AOL (America Online). AOL is an online service, not an ISP, that is generally slow, and makes your computer highly vulnerable to viruses and hackers. In fact, roughly half the viruses that infect Windows machines can only attack systems running AOL. AOL is widely used, though, because it is very easy to use by totally clueless people and heavily advertised.
