I Didn’t Read It BUT …..

” Forward this to everyone you know” , ” Let see how many real friends I have by reposting this.” You know what I am talking about?

They post some kind of political or religious belief, then end it with the statement about 94% of the readers not forwarding it or if you do not blink seven times and send to seven people in the next seven minutes you will have seven years of bad luck !

What’s the purpose of this? Are they trying to use some kind of Jedi mind trick to get people to forward or re-post it? I have to tell you, it doesn’t work.

It doesn’t even make sense. If the vast majority of people are not forwarding it, wouldn’t it be logical for the reader to likewise not forward it so as to be a part of the majority? Wanting to be a member of a group is just human nature.

Are they challenging the reader to annoy their friends in the same way they were just annoyed? What kind of friend would accept this challenge? A bad one, most likely.

Seeing this bullshit has got to be the 2nd most annoying thing behind we are holding 2.5 million dollars for you in Nigeria ….. oh wait behind ” It’s Obama’s fault __________ (fill in the blank)”

    I think the “challenge” that you won’t forward it, generates more forwards. (But not for me)
