Cheap tricks...

Got the following as a forward in my email from a very close friend...
Find the error, its impossible:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
Did you know that 80% of UCDS students could not find the error above?
Forward this to at least 5 people with the title
'Find the error, it's impossible',
and when you click 'Send',
the answer will be right in front of your eyes!
This is something new, have seen earlier emails supposedly originating from Microsoft, HCL, Nokia and types, claiming to give freebies(and even money!) to all who forward the same to more than 'n' people...

I really don't know when would netizens get more mature and stop initiating such really cheap email chains, which I am sure will do more rounds than my hard disk does per minute!

At least now, someone who comes across this blog would not forward email having similar content to this, and I'd have saved some network traffic, doing my bit to contribute to faster internet :-)
