    Try this

    Somebody just emailed me this -


    >>Open up your favorite word processor.

    >>Type "Q33 NY" - this was the flight number of one of the planes that crashed into the WTC

    >>Select this text and change the font size into 26 or 30 or so

    >>Now change the font to "wingdings". What do you get?


    Weird.

    I'm not sure if that was the real flight number though, so it might be the product of someones imagination.

    Definately weird. Also, the attack happened on September 11. That is 9/11/01. 911. That's weird.

    That's probably just a coincidence, but still pretty freaky ::grabs hold of teddy bear and security blanket::

    This is plain wrong.

    None of the flights had this number. Some sicko figured out
    these letters look like a mystic symbol of the tragedy in
    wingdings. So he send the word around. And you all believed
    that bull****. None of this is true. Get information from those
    people who know, not some internet/mail-junk.

    For more (german) information try:
    http://www.spiegel.de/netzwelt/netzk...158516,00.html

    Or try to search the net yourself, I'm sure other news magazines
    will have figured it out, too.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    As I said "it was probably just a coincidence", but admittedly I was skeptical about it.

    nv, rock on with yo' bad self!

    Too many urban legends born out of this...

    Like the guy that supposedly surfed debris down 87 flights...
    Like the significance of the number 11...
    Like the Nostradamus BS...

    Check sources before you believe anything like this, people!
