Dear HistoNetters,
	Now that everyone has rushed in to give tons of good websites for
urban legends, hoaxes, chain letters, etc. - I want you to think about
this.  What - IF - it had been true - the lady who sent the original
message would have done us a huge favor.  For the ones who've been on this
website for a long time - you will recall seeing this antiperspirant
message sent  a long time ago.  At the time no one rushed in to debunk it.
It was written in such a scientific manner that I felt sure it had to be
true; therefore, I told all the ladies in my department to quit wearing
antiperspirants.  Well...needless to say...things began to get a little
smelly around here:-)
	Boy, was I ever glad when the Samurai Pathologist gave out the
address of  I had gone there to read about
the supposed "quick fix" for the Y2K computer problem and accidentally
found the antiperspirant hoax.  I sure was glad to reinstate the use of
antiperspirants in my hot, humid building!
	Thanks, Andrea, for caring enough to be concerned about your
colleagues.  Just remember, if it's too scary, too easy, offers money, or
sounds just plain weird - it usually is.
