Default Chain letters. D8

So, these things are annoying me.
Like those stupid imaature kids who post on alot of music videos,
"You say Hannah Montana, I say AC/DC.
You say Jonas Brothers, I say 30 Seconds to Mars." Ect ect ect.
It aggrivating how they just HAVE to pst that on every music video they dont like.
Why watse the time posting that when you could watch a video YOU like.
Also theres one,
"If the Jonas Brothers were going to jump of a building 98% of teens would scream and cry.
Post this to (Insert numerical value here) videos if you would grab popcorn and say, "JUMP! JUMP! JUMP!."
/End rant.

This is an old topic, but I might as well add to it. These chain letters are dumb. Bill Gates will not send a free computer to a starving Somalian kid for every letter you send out. One cup of rice will not be sent to that same Somalian kid for every letter either. In fact, that Somalian kid was probably dead by the time you got the chain letter. And by dead, I don't mean recently dead. I mean dead, as in one week after the chain letter was written. In 1998. And you know that kid suffering from cancer who will have his life extended one day for each letter in the chain? He's either dead or has gotten enough chemo to light up a Christmas tree. In either case, your letter did jack squat.

Here's something the worthless chain letters did do: make over one million people wish for someone they liked and never had it happen, wish for money they never got, and send ten million chain letters to irate people who tore it up and threw it away. This tells me that roughly 9.1% of the population are complete idiots, which makes me wonder why more politicians don't appeal more to dumb people instead of Hispanics during an election. Or maybe they already do, because they are part of the demographic. To the poor, pathetic 9.1% of you who still believe sending around chain letters does you any good, remember this: the little kid is dead, cancer wins, people don't fall in love with you after you forward the letter, neither will money drop from the sky, a cup of food will not be sent anywhere, no free laptops will be given after 1,000 sends, God, Buddha, Rama, or Super Mega Death Christ 2000 will not bless you, and absolutely nothing bad will happen to you if you don't send the chain mail. You already had something bad happen to you: you got that stupid chain mail and lost 1 minute of your life you will never get back. Go cry about it, or tell ten of your friends.

Which is why I don't support awareness mail shit.

M... my... my life is a lie...

In all seriousness, though, I haven't gotten any in years.

What I feel like doing to one though is to modify the contents and then re-forward them.

LOL hey... this reminds me of a nice fun thing I did a while back.

In a pile of junk mail one day I got a whole bunch of ads from some company for books on 'how to make more money'. In the same pile of junk mail, some letters from the local church asking for donations.

So, i eliminated the middleman; I sent away for the book in the name of the church and mailed them off.

Some weeks later i hear from a neighbor that the church and a publishing agency are going to court over books they never ordered... Lets say that at that moment i felt like i'd won at life.

They never DID find out who the heck did it either

Woah, how the heck couldn't they find out? Can't they trace who forwarded the mail??

PROTIP:
1. Write receiver and return address backwards.
2. Do not put any stamps on.
3. Go to the center of the town/city and send out the mail.
4.
5. profit!

It only works for local mails though :v

What MrClastro said.

Mail is literally untracable if you don't put any form of forwarding details going back to you, and dump it off in a public postbox in the middle of the city.
