Byron: This is a net hoax and is not true. Been floating around the net for
at least two years that I know of and some have told me they've been seeing
it since 1989. We had a thread on here not a month or two ago about the same
thing. Think it was before you joined the list.

Pretty much what I'm asking of all members is to do your homework before you
post items of this type. Go to one of the net hoax sites and check it out.
Takes up unnecessary space and time for answers, debunking messages, etc.

Note I didn't say "don't post at all", we're open to about anything on this
list but discussions of religion, politics, and flames.
