So, why do I laugh? Because chain mails are SO F**KING STUPID, only a complete DUMBASS would believe them, and I LOVE taking the piss out of them and poking at everything that’s wrong with them. Just got this one forwarded to me, first chain mail I’ve had in years:
This is Tara and John, the directors of MSN,
for the interruption but MSN is closing down. This is because too many
inconsiderate people are taking up all the name (e.g. Making up lots of
different accounts for just one person, etc.), we only have 578 names
left. If you would like to close your account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE
ON. If you would like to keep your
Account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This is no
joke, we will be shutting down the servers.
Send it on, thanks.
WHO EVER DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND IT
WILL COST YOU 10.00 A MONTH TO USE. SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR
CONTACT LIST. NOW YOU
KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLAY. COPY THE WHOLE EMAIL.
GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK YOU FOR YOUR
This is no joke if you don’t believe us then go to this site:
see for yourself. Anyways once you’ve sent this message to at least 18
contacts, your MSN icon will become blue. Please copy and paste don’t
forward because people wont read them.
Extra retardation-factor for using 72pt text in an e-mail from Microsoft. By the way, if you’re talking about the messenger client, it’s officially called Windows Live Messenger, actually, not MSN. MSN is Microsoft Network, which includes the popular Hotmail, which is mentioned that it will remain a free service in that news article… not pay-to-use or closed down. And there are 578 names left? So like… let’s just work this out. Assuming by "MSN" you actually mean Windows Live Messenger… so you require a Windows Live ID… which most people sign up for a Hotmail account to get. Right. When you figure out that there is a 64 character limit to a Windows Live ID, and each of those characters can be either A-Z (24 chars), 0-9 (10 chars), hyphens, full stops and underscores (3 chars)… so that’s 64^37… which comes out as 6.7399866667876599486667537717549e+66… which is around 67,400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 different combinations of name. You do realise the population of the world is only around 6,700,000,000? And only 578 names are left? So… you’re saying that every single person in the world has around 10,060,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 different Hotmail accounts?! HOLY SHIT DUDES!!
Gotta love POINTLESS maths and making other people look like retards. I’d also expect to see proper spelling and grammar in an important announcement e-mail from Microsoft. AND it says "this is no joke" twice, making it quite obvious that it IS a joke.
Oh, and by the way, my messenger icon is ALREADY blue, thanks.
Thanks to Sara for the chain mail, you’ve kept me entertained with it for the past 20-30 minutes. I still don’t get why people send them, though.
