Fuel from corn husks? Nuh uh!

Is there anything more annoying than going to check your email, opening it, and then finding an email waiting for you from someone that you haven't heard from since like three Christmases ago but by the "Re: fwd: fwd: fwd:" subject line you just KNOW is asking for you to fwd a poem or sign something or make a wish or jump up and down three times and then sing a song and THEN sign something and that if you don't your life will end as you know it and you'll have a one-way ticket to hell because you DIDN'T (*gasp*) fwd the email on? *breathe*. And you can't help but think how frickin' annoying it is to receive emails such as this, especially since you haven't talked to this person in over three years, so you hover over the DELETE button with your mouse pointer all the while thinking "Self...you really shouldn't open that email. You KNOW what it is. She just wants to send you the 'hug of the day' or the 'please sign this and fwd it on to 6 bazillion of your friends' email. It's a trap! Don't open it! But I feel sooooooooo guilty if I don't! Nope, not opening it...*sigh* alright, fine...I'll open it. But I am NOT sending anything on and I am NOT signing a flippin' thing! Do you hear me, self!??!"

So after all that arguing with yourself (freaks) you open the email and find something like this:

"Dear Friends,

I have just read and signed the petition: "Help America Declare Energy Independence."

Please take a moment to read about this important issue, and join me in signing the petition. It takes just 30 seconds, but can truly make a difference. We are trying to reach 20,000 signatures - please sign here: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/422244770

Once you have signed, you can help even more by asking your friends and family to sign as well.

Thank you!

X."

Now. You sit there, roll your eyes and think "dude...I have TOTALLY met my quota on signing petitions this week. NO MORE! But what if I don't sign? Someone's totally gonna know that I didn't. I could destroy the world because I didn't take a lousy 30 seconds to sign a petition.:(" Well, that whole time you took thinking about signing it you could've just been signing it and calling it a day, right?

But seriously. This one is good. Not ONLY does it affect us and our environment now, but it will affect our kids, and their kids, and their kids. So, as that annoying chick who sends you fwds and petitions in your email, I genuinely urge you to quickly go sign this petition. It really only does take 30 seconds and it will help you hit that quota of signed/petitioned emails so that when you get the one that wants you to sign and fwd the "please sign my petition to save the earthworms" email you can giddyly skip over it and say "ha! I'm saving the ozone man...the worms can wait!" :)

Have a super day!
