>If you receive an e-mail entitled 'Badtimes', delete it immediately. 
>Do not open it. 
>Apparently this one is pretty nasty. It will not only erase 
>everything on your hard drive, but it will also delete anything on disks 
>within 20 feet of your computer. It demagnetises the stripes on ALL of your 
>credit cards. It reprograms your PIN access code, screws up the tracking on 
>your VCR and uses subspace field harmonics to scratch any CDs you attempt 
>to play.
>It will recalibrate your refrigerator's coolness settings so all your 
>icecream melts and your milk curdles. It will program your phone autodial 
>to call only 0898 sex line numbers. This virus will mix antifreeze into 
>your fish tank. It will drink all your beer. It will leave dirty socks on 
>the coffee table when you are expecting company.
>It will replace your shampoo with engine oil and your engine oil with 
>orange juice, all the while dating your current girl/boyfriend behind your 
>back and billing their hotel rendezvous to your Visa card. It will cause 
>you to run with scissors and throw things in a way that is only fun until 
>someone loses an eye.
>It will rewrite your backup files, changing all your active verbs into 
>passive tense and incorporating undetectable misspellings which grossly 
>change the interpretations of key sentences.
>If 'Badtimes' is opened in Windows95/98, it will leave the toilet seat up 
>and your hair dryer plugged in dangerously close to a full bath. It will 
>also molecularly rearrange your aftershave/perfume, causing it to smell 
>like dill pickles.
>It will install itself into your cistern and lie in wait until someone 
>important, like your boss or girlfriend, does a serious number 2, then 
>block the s-bend and cause your toilet to overflow.
>In the worst case scenario, it may stick pins in your eyes.
