3. Someone replied to this:

Colukabki is indeed a dangerous and infectious disease 😉
It affects the common sense. The symptoms are relatively easy to
identify. The patient believes in any foolish things going around the
internet, be it spam or chain mails, despite umpteen warnings all over
the web 😉

#9 It’s incredible! But true.

An Indian boy in his twelfth standard has disproved Einstein’s “Theory of Relativity”.

Shocked???Read on..

Sudarshan Reddy has theoretically proven the existence of a sub-atomic particle which can travel at speeds greater than that of light, thereby challenging one of the fundamental postulates of the “Theory of Relativity”. In his recent research paper submitted to the “Institute of Advanced Physics (IAP)” at Trieste,(Italy) Sudarshan has proved the existence of a class of sub-atomic particles called ‘leptons’, which can travel faster than light.

The International Physics Community has been shell shocked by this discovery. Dr.Massimo Martelli, President of the IAP has this to say about the paper submitted by Sudarshan : ” After a long, careful and critical analysis, I can confidently say that Sudarshan ‘s research paper show a tremendous leap in our understanding of physics as his investigation mounts up on ‘leptons’. His work builds substantially on the work of Einstein and others in the field of relativity.

When physicists from Princeton University tried to measure Sudarshan’s IQ with an IQ-meter (at the American Embassy in Delhi), the meter broke down, simply because it was not calibrated to measure such high IQ. This was reported ‘Times of India’.

Prof.Carl Uppsala, Chairman of the Nobel sub-committee for physics has confirmed that Sudarshan has been shortlisted for the Nobel prize in physics for the year 2001.

Sudarshan, incidentally, is the brother of Madhu Reddy, the Indian whiz kid who developed an operating system superior to Microsoft Windows. We should all be very proud of these boys. Please forward this email to as many Indians as you can.

#10 do you know that India is the richest country in the world!

Right now, India is the richest country in the world!

Wondering how? It’s really amazing.

It’s due to Mr. G Vaidyaraj, who donated all his wealth, about which he actually did not know. He is a descendent of Raja Krishnadev Raya from Mysore district.

For the last 300 years or so, three stones were worshipped in his house.

But nobody tried to see what it was, except this person, who is a lawyer by profession.

One day, when there was nobody in his house, he took the stone out to see what it was that they worship. Due to the dust deposited on it, from many many years, it looked only like a simple stone. But when he touched it, some portion of the stone was cleansed. And he saw a bright ray of light. He saw something which attracted his attention. And he was amazed when he cleaned all of them.

The whole room was filled with light. He discovered they were diamonds of about 4600 carats each. He informed the Govt. of India and the news is censored with its security. It’s now deposited in a Swiss Bank. The cost of single diamond exceeds the GDP of USA + UK . India can buy virtually 7 developing nations.

Even World Bank does not have enough money to buy it. One diamond costs thrice the debt of World Bank over India .. One such diamond can buy 10 Bill Gates to you. And the World Bank has proposed the Indian Govt. that it can pay India in Installment if it wishes to do so. India ‘s GDP is 34.25 billion dollars.

Bill Gates’ property is 95 billion dollars approximate so that is the way “nature changes”. Our Prime Minister has refused to sell it. He said it will be sold or mortgaged for credit when we need it. Otherwise right now we have no problems. You can go through Times of India with a small column on it a week ago. Star TV presented a 115 minute documentary on it about 15 days ago. The Hindu with its half page article in it. After that it was censored as classified.

#11: Bill Gates sharing his fortune !

Subject: FW: Microsoft and AOL merger
Date: Fri, 24 Sep 1999

I'm forwarding a forwarded message...read on, it it works you may get $$ from Microsoft. Certainly Bill has enough to share-maybe today we'll be blessed financially!

I am forwarding this because the person who sent it to me is a good friend and does not send me junk. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet company and in an effort make sure that Internet explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test. When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (if you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time period. For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $5.00, for every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $3.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $1.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a check. I thought this was a scam myself, but two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on, Microsoft contacted me for my e-mail and within days, I received a check for $800.00.

Subject: Fw: THIS IS NOT JUNK LETTER. BILL GATES IS SHARING HIS FORTUNE.

Dear Friends,

Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is sharing his fortune. If you ignore this you will repent later. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.

When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (if you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time period. For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00, for every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $241.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a cheque.

Regards. Chinu! I thought this was a scam myself, but two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on, Microsoft contacted me for my address and within days, I received a cheque for US$24,800.00. You need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can afford this Bill Gates is the man. It's all marketing expense to him. Please forward this to as many people as possible. You are bound to get at least US$10,000.00.

Trivia

2. Bill replied to this :p

Even more annoying than spam, in some respects, are hoaxes. I’m acutely aware of this because my name was recently attached to a hoax email message that was widely distributed.

People embellished the fraudulent email over time, as it was forwarded from electronic mailbox to electronic mailbox, but an early version read this way:

“My name is Bill Gates. I have just written up an e-mail tracing program that traces everyone to whom this message is forwarded to. I am experimenting with this and I need your help. Forward this to everyone you know and if it reaches 1000 people everyone on the list will receive $1000 at my expense. Enjoy. Your friend, Bill Gates.”

The bogus message was widely forwarded, which surely led to some disappointment from people who hoped to receive $1,000 for passing along what was essentially a chain letter.
