More urban legends and hoaxes: Social Security Number Racial Code, David 'Darren' Bucklew Letter, Cool Video Clip Chain Letter, Long Distance Charge for Internet, and Free Beer from Miller Brewing Company
Social Security Number Racial Code
My grandfather, Evans Fowler, has been doing research and discovered something that I was unaware of. He has discovered, on a small scale, that the second middle number (the fifth number) in African American's social security numbers is an even number while other nationalities have odd numbers.
This allows a person, organization, institution or whatever to claim that they are not discriminating against African Americans. However, they can tell our nationality simply by looking at our ssn and can, therefore, discriminate against us without us knowing.
You might want to do your own little research. What are your African American friends, relatives, co-workers middle numbers and what are your Caucasian friends and co-workers middle numbers? Maybe we can find out if this is the case on a larger scale. White people might really be getting over on us by making us feel like there is no way to discriminate against us if we don't put "African-American" or "black" on a school application, loan application or job application.
But if this secret race indicator is true, that's all they need to reject us. Let me know what you find out. If this is something that you were already aware of then disregard this note. This is only speculation!! The more people you ask, the more valid the point will be. You might not want to tell "you know who" the real reason why you are asking until we can find out if this is true.
David "Darren" Bucklew Letter
Hello, my name is David "Darren" Bucklew. I live in Pittsburgh, PA where I attend Bethel Park High School and participate in many sports. I have severe ostriopliosis of the liver. (My liver is extremely inflamed). Modern Science has yet to find a cure. Valley Children's Hospital has agreed to donate 7 cents to the National Disease Society for every name on this letter. Please send it around as much as you can.
PS: For those of you who dont take 5 minutes to do this, what goes around comes around. You can help sick people, and it costs you nothing.
Cool Video Clip Chain Letter
OK here's the deal, this works. I don't know how... but it works.
You have to send it (this) to no less than 11 people. Somehow, from the return path generated, you'll receive... something, and it is funny!!!!
This is the coolest thing I've ever gotten! All you have to do is send it to 11 people and this little video comes up on your screen and shows the funniest clip. I can't tell you what it is but I was laughing so hard! So spend a few seconds to send this and you'll be glad you did! Thanks!
Long Distance Charge for Internet
CNN reported that in the next two weeks, Congress is going to vote on allowing telephone companies to charge for Internet access. That means, every time we make a long distance e-mail we will receive a long distance charge. This will get costly. Please visit to the following web site AND complain. Complain to your Congressman. Don't allow this to pass. http://www.house.gov/writerep Pass this on to your friends.
