This is from the website of Jonathan Cainer. The web address is http://stars.metawire.com/ He does a daily comment on various subjects. I thought this one may be of interest to some of you. He has also been talking about May 5th alignment. Jonathan writes for a newspaper in England as well as his website.
Thought for the Day: Friday, 31st March 2000
PRESS RELEASE: STRICTLY UNDER EMBARGO TILL MIDNIGHT, MARCH 31, 2000... Two planets, each slightly smaller than Saturn, have just been discovered in distant sectors of the sky. The discoveries were made by Vogt, Marcy, and Paul Butler of the Carnegie Institution of Washington. One of the new planets was found orbiting 3.8 million miles from the star HD46375, 109 light-years away in the constellation Monoceros. The second, about 70 percent the mass of Saturn, was found orbiting 32.5 million miles (52 million km) around the star 79 Ceti, 117 light-years away in the constellation Cetus.
Both planets were officially announced via a news bulletin, earlier this week. What the scientists and astronomers have not made public though, is the correlation between these planets and a recent source of radio emissions, detected by the US government listening station in Menwith Hill, Yorkshire, England.
An e.mail from this location was accidentally intercepted, last week, by two reporters for the BBC World Service. This e.mail implies that, when decoded, the radio signals point to plans for a significant fly-past of interplanetary vessels during the early hours of Sunday.
The alien craft should be visible to anyone in a location over 1,000 ft above sea level on the North West horizon. Experts are currently trying to decipher coded signals in an attempt to establish whether the ships intend to land. On the basis of information so far received, it seems likely that the intended locations for arrival would be Boston USA, Calcutta (India) Malin Head (Ireland) and Wellington (New Zealand).
Diplomatic delegations from the United Nations have been despatched to all four places and told to await further instructions. Scientific advisors from NASA, meanwhile, are contemplating an announcement, warning subscribers to the mobile phone network about possible interference to (and from) the spaceships.
It is, apparently, possible to pick up transmissions between the ships on any ordinary mobile phone so long as it has a text messaging facility. The phone must merely be set to 'text' or 'message'. Then, the following digits must be dialled. 2, 7 and then, three times in quick succession; 7,4,5,3,6,6,5.

What a Salesman
One day, a young man goes to apply for a sales job at a major
department store. He tells the sales manager that he doesn't really
have any experience, but he is willing to try his hardest to learn.
The manager likes his attitude and decides to give the guy a chance.
At the close of business the next day, the sales manager decides to
stop in to see how the kid is doing on his first day.
He asks, "How many sales did you have today? "The salesman answers, "One."
"How come only one," asks the manager. "Most of my salesman have 20-30
per day! How much was the one sale you made?"The salesman answers, "$333,344.00"
"WHAT!?! What did you sell?"
"Well, a guy wanted a small fish hook, so I sold him a medium fish
hook, then I sold him a large fish hook. Then he needed a rod, so I
sold him a light action rod, then upgraded to a medium action rod,
and then changed it to a fully balanced combo. Then I told him he was
going to need a boat, so I took him to the boating department and sold
him a 14-foot motor boat, then upgraded him to a 20-foot cabin cruiser.
Then I told him that his Volkswagen wouldn't be able to tow the boat,
so I took him to the car department and sold him a sport utility vehicle."
"A guy came in for a fish hook and you managed to sell him all of
that?" asked the manager.
"No, he came in for a box of tampons, and I said 'Hey, your weekend
is shot anyway, why not do some fishing?'

Subject: The "don't spam me anymore" letter
Date: Fri, 31 Mar 2000 00:
Here is a generic letter I have written that would be great to
send to all those people who send us spam. (Yes, I just got fed
up!) Unfortunately, they all use fake e-mail addresses. Oh,
No, I do not want to buy a legal cable descrambler "for
And I do not want to buy net detective software to spy on my
Nor do I want to purchase the *new* millions CD with a million
people's email addresses so I too can clog up their email boxes
And I do not want to pay you a lot of money to make sure my
websites are in the top 30 listings on every search engine for
I am really not interested in sending $5 to five or three people
or $1 to five people to one person and spamming a bunch of
people hoping that they will send money to me too!
And no, I don't want to pay you $30 or $50 or $90 to submit my
website to a bunch of Free For All link pages that no one ever
reads where my listing will disappear in 10 hours just so I can
receive 1000 e-mail messages from auto-responders trying to sell
And I am really not interesting in replying to your e-mail for
information on another "work at home opportunity".
I am also far too busy to be one of the "10 hardworking
individuals" that you want to work with on "the opportunity of a
lifetime" making $10,000 a month.
I am NEVER going to buy laser printer toner from a company that
constantly spams me from different ISPs with fake addresses and
asks me to call their e-mail removal and complaint line, but
never removes my e-mail address (even when I have called 5 times
and asked to be removed!)
While I am flattered to be selected by The Office of the
Managing Director for a free listing on The International
Executive Guild's Who's Who CD-ROM, I really would rather not
have my info on another CD so that more people can spam me.
No, I really don't want to put a "free" pager on my kids for
$9.95 per month.
I also do not want to pay you 21% interest, a $89 application
fee, and a $65 annual fee for a guaranteed acceptance credit
And by the way, I really doubt that your fat absorber capsules
(as seen on TV) can help me lose 30 pounds in 30 days.
Oh, another thing, I already accept credit cards on my websites,
but thanks for being the 650th person informing me of the
benefits of accepting credit cards on the internet.

NOTE FROM JEAN: The worst thing to do when spammed is to follow their remove instructions. By responding, you merely confirm that your email address is a valid one and so can be used ad nauseam. The only and simplest "solution" to these SPAMs clogging our email boxes, is our delete button.
And just for fun... this is the silliest SPAM claim I've ever received!
"Did you know that there's a way to lose 2 to 14 inches of
fat PERMANENTLY and SAFELY in only 1 HOUR?! . . .
AND TO CONCLUDE, A NO-LAUGHING MATTER
If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people,
with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following.
There would be:
14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north & south (America)
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be non-white
30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death;
1 would be near birth;
1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education
1 would own a computer
When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent.
Last minute addition: Again for those interested, I've posted today the Final feedbacks to the Peace Meditation Focus Group proposal at:
