In the snail mail days, they were a waste of time and they gave you paper cuts.
In today's internet age, they are much too frequent because they're too easy to send.
Why would anyone send something like this to a true "friend"?
That said, I received one today that was pretty fascinating, not for what one gets, but for the factual historic data that is within.
...occurrances that happen once every ten lifetimes.
I'm pasting it here in full because I think you will find it fascinating. Feel welcome to comment. You're even welcome to pass it along.

This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays.
This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags.
Kinda interesting - read on!!!
This year we're going to experience four unusual dates.
1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11 and that's not all...
Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born - now add
the age you will be this year, the results will be 111 for everyone in whole world. This is the year of
The proverb goes that if you send this to eight good friends money will
appear in next four days as it is explained in Chinese FENGSHUI.
Those who don't continue the chain won't receive.......
It's a mystery, but it's worth a try. good luck. "I GET BUY GIVING"
So, forward this to your friends and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on
Chinese Feng Shui. The one who does not forward.....will be without money.
For me, I'm not going to pass this out in my email list. I'm simply posting it here and sending on the link. Why?
1) I do think the information is fascinating.
2) Part of me says, "what if this is true?"
Well, I googled "handbook on chain letters" and "rule book of chainmail" and didn't find anything. Evidently, there is no rule that I have to send it to people in my email list to capture the Good Karma and escape the bad. (Perhaps the only bad Karma is by sending such a thing to my friends.)
Instead, I'm placing this here and sending it out to the universe on Twitter and facebook and folks can decide for themselves about the forwarding part, but still enjoy the factual data.
Oh, and if you're the type that doesn't want to risk sending this out to your "friends" but still wonder, "what if?" - you can use my link too.
....and for those that truly do seek a job for more money, in my last blog, in my last post, I put my companies hiring description and requirements.
