Virus Alert - The Mother Of All Viruses
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 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-- except Yanni
CD's. With them it doubles the volume.
It will automatically download kiddie porn to your hard drive and then notify
It will re-calibrate your refrigerator's coolness settings so all your ice cream
melts and your milk curdles.
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 good beer and replace it I.C. Light.
It will leave dirty socks on the coffee table when you are expecting company.
It will talk nasty about your mother.
Its radioactive emissions will cause your toe jam and bellybutton fuzz (be
honest, you have some) to migrate behind your ears.
It will cause you to run with scissors and throw things in a way that is only
fun until someone loses an eye.
It will give you Dutch Elm Disease and Tinea.
It will rewrite your backup files, changing all your active verbs to passive
tense and incorporating undetectable misspellings which grossly change the
interpretations of key sentences.
If the "Badtimes" message is opened in a Windows 95 environment, it
will leave the toilet seat up and leave your hair dryer plugged in dangerously
close to a full bathtub.
It will also refill your skim milk with whole milk.
It will replace all your luncheon meat with beef tongue.
It will molecularly rearrange your cologne or perfume, causing it to smell like
dill pickles-- but, on the plus side, they're kosher dills.
It is insidious and subtle. It is dangerous and terrible.
These are just a few signs of infection. Beware.
