    Hey, I got an e-mail from Idi Amin's widow. I sent her my checking account number so she could deposit $100 million in it from her deceased husband's loot. I get to keep $10 million of it, but I must give $1 million to charity. Also I have to have $10,000 in my account, to cover transaction fees and such. I should be getting the money next week. I'll keep y'alls posted.
  8. You won too? Wow!!! Dude send in your 10$ bucks fast!!!

    You wonder how many trees are killed because of people trying to exploit dumb people? or how much bandwith??????? SAVE THE BANDWITH!!!!

    More important than that people are getting killed. Like that african blabla who invites you there to south africa to get $5M and then they get your kidneys happily..
