In the words of a fellow opponent of bullying:

Listen bullies, that kid you punched in the hall today? He committed suicide a few seconds ago. That girl you called a slut in class? She's actually a virgin. That boy you called lame? He has to work every night to support his family. That girl you shoved in the hall? She's abused at home. You think you know these people?!?!?! ? ! ? ! Well news flash : YOU DON'T!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! REPOST THIS! 99% of you won't and that's sad. But to those 1% that have

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works.
