"Funny" E-mail

Got this today:

Pass This To All Of Your Contacts Because Now Its Effective

Hotmail Will Close

If you use Hotmail send this message to all of those who use hotmail, on the
contrary the owner of hotmail (Jon Henerd) will delete your mail from here.
Hotmail is overloading, we need to save people from their account being
deleted, and we also need to know who are the actual users that are actually
using their accounts from Hotmail. So, if you are a user, please send this
e-mail to all those whom you can but if you don't pass this on to anyone
your account will be deleted from hotmail. Thank for your cooperation, Mr.
Jon Henerd Depar tment of Administration of Hotmail. We are suffering a
mockery in the the crazed accounts of the e-mails. The consequences
sustained are:

1. No more space other than 1 MB of the space on the hard drive.

2. No more than 20 contacts in your address book.

3. You will have to at least re-establish a copy of this email to at least
10 people so that the system can compress your existence and your
participation in this.

If the requests asked aren't being done then in less then 7 days your
account will be cleaned out and eliminated from the system.

Sorry for the bother.

I don't use hotmail and wouldn't fall for it anyway but I was just wondering if anyone else has received it.

Advert seen on company intranet site:-
1.5ghz, 128mb Sdram, 20GB disk, dvd drive, 14" tft screen, 56 v92 modem, 10/100 Lan, usb, etc Windows XP Home and XP Home. Original box, recovery cd's and manuals. £500

Now I may be wrong but I always assumed that laptops had to have flat screens. Unless they carve an indentation onto the key board. Or the screen ends up having a beer gut when closed. so to speak.

14" tft screen - possibly referred to the time when laptops came with DSTN (I thnk) screens rather than tft - they were not so easy to look at from a angle.

please explain your post about laptops having flat screens. Either you've forgot to type summat or there's something wrong with me.
