So far I've gotten this one twice, and people seem to just blindly forward it:

hello everyone, I had a look on the internet and its actually true On the 1st of november, we will have to pay for the use of our MSN and email accounts unless we send this message to at least 18 contacts on your contact list. It's no joke if you don't believe me then go to the site (www.msn.com) and see for yourself. Anyways once you've sent this message to at least 18 contacts, your msn dude will become blue. please copy and paste don't forward cause people won't take notice of it. My person has turned blue.

I keep replying with the "Don't Kill the Messenger" link, but this one isn't encouraging a petition, just forwarding to 18 people. Annoying.

Just thought I would throw it out there.

DON'T waste money on expensive paper shredders to avoid having your identity stolen. Simply place a few dog turds in the bin bags along with your old bank statements..

Maybe the blue/green issue has to do with your monitor. I have mine set a little darker, so the colors on mine are not the same as the colors on my son's. Or it could have to do with how one perceives colors. I have a shirt that I consider to be this color, but my grandson swears it's this color.
