Fantastic Fun

The most wonderful thing happened today. There was a coke fountain right in the middle of my kitchen. Yes. It’s true. An actual, spurting fountain of coke.

I was so excited. The last time I saw something of this magnitude I was six years old and enjoying my sandwich in the gym. A little boy across the room started screaming and all the other kids shuffled their bums as fast as they could in another direction. There, right where the boy had been was a giant, glorious stream of pop, flying straight into the air. It almost touched the ceiling.

“He shook it a lot.” Whispered a little boy.
“Yuck! I’m all sticky! My dress is ruined!” the girl next to me moaned.
“Who was that boy?” I asked, “I want to marry him.”

It’s true. Since that day I have been trying, with no success, to figure out how to get a can of pop to shoot straight into the air. Call it a hobby. Perhaps it is one of the sad side effects of being too curious. Good thing I’m not a cat.

Well, today my husband decided to carry up three cans of pop from the basement … which he then promptly dropped on the kitchen floor. The pop in two of the cans started to spurt out everywhere … all over the table, walls, me …
“Open your mouth!” I yelled “It’s a coke shower!”
“Are you crazy? Look at the mess!”
“Wee!” I said, skidding through a bubbly puddle and into the cabinets.
“Well, make fun if you want. Everything’s all sticky, and now we’re going to have to clean up.”

You’d think he’d be excited. I married the cool kid with the coke.

Well if he dropped them on the kitchen floor he has to clear it up - after you've danced in it of course!

Actually, he had to go back to work so I did most of the cleaning. That's ok though our floor hadn't been cleaned in a long time! And I've been finding the splatters all over in the strangest places ... some of which were most likely last cleaned by the lady who owned the house before we did ...almost six years ago! I guess it was time.

... my bro Pete and I once did something similar with a bottle of Dr. Pepper and a sink full of dishwater, so there was nowhere to put it! I had a great reason to clean my very sticky stove!

IT HELPED ME To Become Very Wealthy & IT CAN HELP YOU Too!!

This Is NOT A SCAM !!!!


It Will Only COST YOU A $6.00 CASH !!

& IT Really Does WORK!!

PLEASE READ ALL Of This Amazing Article!!!

I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back,
I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now,and came across an
article similar to this that said you could make thousands of dollars within
weeks with only an initial investment of Only $6.00!

I thought, "Yeah right, this must be a scam", but like most of us,
I was curious, so I kept reading.

The Article said that you send $1.00 to each
of the 6 names and addresses stated in the article. You then place your own
name and address in the bottom of the list at #6, and post the article in at
least 200 newsgroups.(There are thousands)

That was it!!

After thinking it over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it.
I figured: "What have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00, Right?" I Then invested the

... Well GUESS WHAT!?...* :-)

... Within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked!

I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I
made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over
$1,000.00! In the third week I had over
$10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made
a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in
rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more than
that on the lottery!!

Let me tell you how this works and most importantly,
WHY it works... Also, make sure you print a copy of this
article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I
promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start
making more money than you thought possible by doing something so easy!

It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus postage)

IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not illegal; and

If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
$$$ Extraordinary Dividends.


Follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can be yours in
20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of the honesty and
integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully
adhering to the instructions.

You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business your
product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the business of
developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks
for quality lists. However, the money made
from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from people
like you and me asking to be included in that list.

Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece
of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 US $1.00 bills and
place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen
through the envelope (to prevent

...Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them.
You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating
the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00 bill. What you are doing
is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it!
Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal
aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S.
Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal. Mail
the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

#1)Christina Fox
2715 9th ave SW
Huntsville, AL 35805

#2)Steven Lum
2255 W Arthur Ave
Chicago, IL 60645

#3)Bryan Montz
P.O. Box 88070
Houston, Tx 77288

#4) Peter J. Davidson
250 R. 98th St.
Stone Harbor, NJ 08247

#5)Reginald B. Ringgold
890 Davis St. Apt# 307
San Leandro, CA 94577

#6) Cynthia Boss
39 Pichette Blvd.
Woonsocket,RI 02895

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other
names up 1 place (#2 becomes #1, #3 becomes #2, etc...) and add YOUR name and
address as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to
original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at
least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to24,000 groups) All you need
is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make! You won't
get very much unless you post like crazy. :)

This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18 Sec. 1302
& 1341 of the Postal lottery laws. Keep a copy of these steps for
yourself and, whenever you need money, you can use it again, and again.

PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the honesty
and integrity of the participants and by their carefully
adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of integrity, the
program will continue and the money that so many others have received will
come your way.

NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you, either on a
computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you. This VERIFIES that
you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might be a good idea to wrap the
$1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk of mail theft.)

So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, six
members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List Developer with
one dollar each. Your name will move up the list geometrically so that when
your name reaches the #1 position you will
be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for only
$6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send it now, add
your own name to the list and you're in business!

from around the world within days! You may eventually want to rent a P.O.Box
due to the large amount of mail you will receive. If
you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as the
postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.**

Now, each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200
postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of the
original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each make 200 MINIMUM
posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an
additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn around and post the MINIMUM
200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5 replies each, I will make an
additional $625.00! The Cycle of $$Money Simply Continues...& Makes You Very RICH!!!
