Something tragic will go to happen…
I received a mysterious message informing me that "something tragic will go to happen... after the midnight of day 31 of March of 2004." Naturally I couldn't resist checking out the url that accompanied this message, and it took me to this website. It's a geocities page, so that automatically makes it credible. A brief investigation of the site then turned up this page: the past life analyser. It informed me that in my past life I was a writer, dramatist and organizer of rituals living in Egypt around the year 1150. Sounds about right. So I wonder what the terrible thing will be that's going to happen after March 31? Maybe their English translator is scheduled to quit on that day.

Watch out! They're on to you. I'd steer clear of South America for a while. Just to be safe, okay?

This one has got to be a prank, particularly with the link to Randi's organization featured so prominantly. With that page about "Kill Bill," I almost wonder if this is some sort of marketing capaign for Quentin Tarrantino. If so, it's the strangest "viral marketing" tactic I've seen yet.

"What terrible thing is going to happen after March 31st?" Simple, the first thing to happen after March 31st will be the April Fool's.
