Sept. 11 Attacks - E-mail

Tue Aug 16, 2005 10:45 pm

Sorry to sound stupid, but I received the below e-mail from a friend and I thought the best place to find out if it was true was here:

The e-mail was as below:

TYPE: Q33NY

1) Highlight it
2) Increase the size to 48
3) Change the font to Windings (1st one)

My friend is trying to convince me that by following the above steps, a series of images will appear that will signify (in code) the tragic events of 9/11!!!
The above word 'Q33NY' is claimed to be a flight no. of one of the planes (or registration).

I would like to put the person who sent me this in her place as she is trying to convince everyone she knows, I am the only one who doesn't believe it.

Sorry if this appears to be silly, but I don't like ppl who play with peoples mind over a tragic event.....

Thanks

Interesting, I just tried it out. No clue what the Q33NY is for though. The NY is obvious, but the Q33 is beyond me.

That one's been going around for quite a while. If you go to hoaxbusters there's a pretty good explanation.

That is bollucks. Some that that was a flight number of one flight that crashed into the building... 'It was from some hoax creators. Don't give anything about it... Just not true.

It's not a reg, that's for sure, I mean at least not of one of the planes. Neither is it a flight number but more likely is it just $§%&!!!

Just tried it to amuse myself... yeah something does appear, no joke: a symbol of an airplane flying left to right, 2 symbols that look like twin buildings (but are prob supposed to be sheets of paper with text), a symbol of a skull and cross bones, and a symbol of the Star of David. Kind of eery, but probably just a coincidence.

Could Q33 refer to the MTA Bus with that number?

Someone clearly had too much time on their hands and was just messing around with the wingdings font.

people wait for things to happen, then they trace backwards and create a code or word game that makes it looks like it was set before the actual event..

it's very simple to do

A very old "hoax" email. Been around for some time.

Word of warning, in some forms it has been known to carry a virus so, if your friend doesn't have up to date virus protection and a firewall, it would be woth running one of the free virus checkers.

If you use other types of characters, lets say western and them you type a sequence of letters, you can also see the same results:

try to type the following:

a i r p l a n e - t o w e r s - s k u l l - s t a r


Isn't it amazing, you can read the same, but different type of characters.

Never seen nor heard about the e-mail in question. However, I do know that if one folds a US $20 bill ('96 design & newer) a certain way; one sees the a few 9/11/01-related events.

Some of you may already have seen these (I wasn't aware of the 3rd folding until today):

Judging by the addition of the Star of David, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if this is from some weird group that keeps insisting that Israel and all Jews were behind 9/11.

Maybe because september is the third mont of the third quarter? Quarter three, month tree. Still pure BS.
