People actually believe the things they get in their email boxes. For instance: (cut/pasted from an actual forwarded email I received this morning)
> When asked this riddle, 80% of kindergarten kids got
> the answer, compared to 17% of
seniors. Stanford University
> What is greater than God, More evil than the devil,
> The poor have it, The rich need it, And if you eat it, you'll die?
> Send this to 10 people and then press shift and you
> will get the answer.
> P.S. You won't believe this, but this really does
> give you the answer!!!!
Obviously the answer is "nothing." But it perturbs me that people believe the answer will appear on your screen when you forward this to 10 people.
Hint: of course it doesn't work so stop forwarding it!!!! This is why the internet is so congested. Oh, and because of bloggers. (gulp) Sorry.
*Other interesting Charlie Brown quotes:
“In the book of life, the answers aren't in the back.”
“Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.”
“There are three things in life that people like to stare at: a flowing stream, a crackling fire and a Zamboni clearing the ice.”
"I've developed a new philosophy... I only dread one day at a time.”
“If I stand here, I can see the Little Red Haired girl when she comes out of her house... Of course, if she sees me peeking around this tree, she'll think I'm the dumbest person in the world... But if I don't peek around the tree, I'll never see her... Which means I probably AM the dumbest person in the world... which explains why I'm standing in a batch of poison oak.”
But my favorite one is probably still "Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh!"
