Has anyone tried this?

Open MS Word, then type in upper case the letters DC (for Washington, DC), then change the font size to 72, then change the font to Webdings

Do you see a White House crossed-out and city skyscrapers which might represent New York?

Try the same thing with the letters NYC. You'll see "I love New York." Change the font to Wingdings and you'll be shocked.

Here's another one:
Rearranging the letters of "George Bush" will give you, "He bugs Gore"

I tried it...and yes "shocked" would be a good word for the NYC....spooky even.

The other ones were cool though, thanks

You know, I don't mean to be over-reactive, but I find this kind of this particularly insensitive and offensive.

6000+ died recently.

This to me is a game - produced from their horrific deaths.

Games of this nature are completely inappropriate in my opinion.

Yes, you are over-reactive. I only posted this because I was shocked by it. I didn't invent this. It's not something I would ever make up. Anyway, I just noticed that Rex Allen McCoy previously posted something about these weird coincedences. So don't get on my case about it!

Before criticizing me why don't you read my post in the "Poetic Haven" Sanctuary forum? http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum55/HTML/000109.html

Ok guys, everyone take a breather and calm down. Be reminded that personal attacks will not be tolerated. This is the Lounge, for pete's sake, a place to unwind and have fun, socialize and meet new people. I implore you to use it as such. Any other infringements will warrant the locking of this thread.

*dances around to break the tension*

It is really odd but hey, those peeps out there find ways to make milk cartons look evil. It was interesting to do though.

Yeah, cheer up! Just be happy something like this doesn't happen everyday!

If I've lost the girl of my dreams...who am I looking for now?
