I am not afraid of viruses in general but I know for a fact that this one is
real !  Be sure to read this because
this virus will affect you harshly....and as a computer professional I feel
it is my obligation to make you all
aware of this.  THIS IS NOT A JOKE !

     >If you receive an e-mail 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

     It will re-calibrate your refrigerator's coolness settings so all your
     ice cream melts and your milk curdles.

     I will program your phone AutoDial to call only your mother-in-law's

     This virus will mix antifreeze into your fish tank.

     It will drink all your beer.

     It will leave dirty socks on the coffee table when you are expecting

     Its radioactive emissions will cause your toe jam and bellybutton fuzz
     to migrate behind your ears.

     It will replace your shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine, all
     while dating your current boy/girlfriend behind your back and billing
     their hotel rendezvous to your Visa card.

     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 Windows95 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, but it will also refill your skim milk with whole milk.

     It will replace all your luncheon meat with Spam.

     It will molecularly rearrange your cologne or perfume, causing it to
     smell like dill pickles.

     It is insidious and subtle. It is dangerous and terrifying to behold.
     It is also a rather interesting shade of mauve.

     These are just a few signs of infection.
