    I have great news regarding chain emails...

    This may come as a complete shock to many, but, contrary to popular belief, chain emails almost never contain reliable information! I know---shocking! For example, there is a chain email going around claiming that within a few years Europe and possibly even North America will be mostly populated by Muslims, due to their astounding birth rate of 8.1! Well, not quite...

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/relig...mographics.asp

    Another example: An email circulating showing photographic evidence that a Smart Car isn't so "smart" after all! OMG LOL!

    http://www.snopes.com/photos/acciden...s/smallcar.jpg

    Lo and Behold, it's not a Smart Car at all, but an SUV! Who would have thought an email would make a false claim?

    http://www.snopes.com/photos/accident/smallcar.asp

    And of course, I must mention this beautiful piece of work, where a young Christian Einstein humiliates his arrogant atheist professor. Amazingly, this picture perfect story is not true, believe it or not!

    http://www.snopes.com/religion/einstein.asp

    And so on and so forth. What I'm getting at is, if you receive a chain email like these, please do yourself a favor and investigate it yourself.

    My mom sends me emails about Obama being a secret Muslim who was born in Kenya. Do you have any proof to debunk that?

    My dog is ten.

    Is that dog years or human years?

    Orly mine too. Dog years don't exsist. Hopefully mine has 6 years to go.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    I save all my chain emails and some day, I am going to make a full suit of chain email armor out of it. Then I shall truly be invincible, but unable to move forward.
