The way I figure it, you just earned $245.00 if you are reading this. I don't know about you, but the way I see it there are at least 1000 users on SI, so that's 245.00 times 1000 is let's see move the decimal over three and you get $245,000.00 for me. I mean I get not you get. So I am letting Bill Gates know right now because I could really use that free money for doing nothing but starting this thread. I don't have is e-mail address but I guess it's probably bill@aol.com or bill@yahoo.com or some big company like that. I wonder how they do that. Find out it's me that started this. I mean I didn't start it, I got this email, but I wonder how do they do that. It must have something to do with computers. RULES: If you start another thread about this it is cheating me out of my money and I will ban you from posting here and notify the authorities so. Taker your $245.00 and be done with you is what I say. Where is my check?
