Well, that's what it says on their website. I would think if they were going to lie about such a thing they would put a better spin on it than "Gorilla Glue may be harmful or fatal if swallowed."

Rest assured: Friday the 13th is real - it can be found just between Thursday the 12th and Saturday the 14th. You are not in danger of missing the day - or your football game.

Actually, Friday the 13th is always bad luck when it comes to football. Whenever I've seen a football game on a Friday the 13th, one of the teams lost!

I knew there was a VW Rolling Stones, but I never heard of a VW Beatles.

Anyway, they rock, don't float.

Maybe the poster is confusing with the WWII Volkswagen "Schwimmwagen" which was amphibious.

Comment: Hello-
I use this site to verify viruses and things like that. I was wondering if
you could tell me about the latest piece of suspicious e-mail to come to
my inbox. I didn't open it, but I did put it immediately into my
spamkiller file. It's from
"there" with an "re: soda half " in subject line. I glanced at it while in
the spamkiller file and the body of the message was nonsense. Please tell
me I haven't infected my computer!! I did a quick scan and no infected
files were detected. Please advise.

Comment: What do you know about the msnbc alert on "Millions face risk
from drug-coated stents?" By Robert Bazell (NBC News) released Nov 21,
2006. Is this true or false?

I have a stent such as this and I'm concerned because the things reported
indicate I could suddenly drop dead.
