This is probably doing the email rounds, but is still pretty spooky.

Follow these instructions....

1. Open Microsoft Word
2. Set your font size to 72
3. Select the font "Webdings"
4. Turn your Caps Lock on
5. Type the following letters: N Y C

(isn't that cute)

6. Highlight what you just typed.
7. Change the font to "Wingdings" (the first one, not Wingdings 2)

(not so cute anymore is it)

this is the version i was sent:
I have no idea how people find these things out!
Here is something really strange:
Did you know that a flight number from one of the planes that hit one of the two towers was Q33NY.
In MS Word, type in that flight number
Enlarge the font size to 26
Change the font to Wingdings

but i don't think that is actually the real flight number

TB, the star is a Star of David, a Jewish symbol (the same one which appears in the flag of Israel). Quite ironic that this was posted on the Jewish New Year....

The "Q33" thing is actually supposed to be a reference to text in the Qur'an - we more usually write that word as Koran, BTW. The passage deals with the way that Islam requires wealth to be divided and talks of using it to raise armies. It also talks about the preferred treatment to be given to those who give the most to that cause.

I wouldn't read too much into that tho, coz that "division of wealth" is what we know better as "taxation". After all, some of our taxes are spent on activities remarkably similar to raising an army. O' course, I dunno that we'd get preferential treatment for paying more than anyone else.

Hmmm, but then again, the rich and powerful usually DO get more from the government, in one way or another... :eek:

This one´s really wierd....

Select Webdings and type the following symbols "(PRESENT) (PRESENT) (PIPER CHEROKEE) (INFORMATION) (TRAIN)"

Now highlight it and change the font to Haettenschweiler.

Spooky, eh?

Actually, I just did it again with the CAPS LOCK on, and that is really spooky.

latest email:

Who works this stuff out?

The date of the attack: 9/11 - 9 + 1 + 1 = 11

September 11th is the 254th day of the year: 2 + 5 + 4 = 11

After September 11th there are 111 days left to the end of the year.

119 is the area code to Iraq/Iran. 1 + 1 + 9 = 11

Twin Towers - standing side by side, looks like the number 11

The first plane to hit the towers was Flight 11

State of New York - The 11 State added to the Union

New York City - 11 Letters

Afghanistan - 11 Letters

The Pentagon - 11 Letters

Ramzi Yousef - 11 Letters (convicted or orchestrating the attack on the WTC in 1993)

Flight 11 - 92 on board - 9 + 2 = 11

Flight 77 - 65 on board - 6 + 5 = 11

I've seen that one too. Binned it with the rest of the idiocy that's come across cyberspace in a barrage of hysteria of late. I've given up on it and really think that, for a wee while anyway, I should give up my e-mail too.

Some people seem to have too much hysteria and too little else to do, I guess.

I'm with Ozexpat.

I think all the above WINGDING and other crap is, HORSES***** = 11
