    Careful where you sit!

    Hi Everyone, I have just received this e-mail from a friend of mine. I'm not sure how genuine it is but, but hey at least it's worth checking what you're about to sit on:



    This message is serious and has been passed to us from Cheshire RFU.

    Could you please cascade as quickly as possible as this came through our NHS web page.

    For your information, a couple of weeks ago, in the Odeon cinema , Festival Park, a person sat on something sharp in one of the seats. When she stood up to see what it was, a needle was found poking through the seat with an attached note saying, "you have been infected with HIV".

    The Centres for Disease Control in Birmingham, reports similar events have taken place in several other cities recently.

    ALL of the needles tested HAVE been found positive for HIV. The CDC also reports that needles have been found in the coin return areas of pay phones and coke machines. Everyone is asked to use extreme caution when confronted with these types of situations. All public chairs should be thoroughly but safely inspected prior to any use. A thorough visual inspection is considered the bare minimum. Further more, they ask that everyone notify their familymembers and
    friends of the potential dangers, as well.

    The previous information was sent from Hanley Police Station to all of the local councils in the Staffs area and was interdepartmentally dispersed.

    We were all asked to pass this to as many people as possible."

    I assume that's the Center for Disease Control in Birmingham Alabama, USA then?

    Got this from a friend last night as well. Pretty certain it's a hoax.

    Take a look here: clicky

    This stuff is always total nonsense. Best delete it rather than let it clog up your mailbox.

    i remember this story about 5 years back when i was at uni, was on the news of a few cases of clubbers infected and the notes slipped into their pockets, don't know if it were real or not & never came across anyone who actually had that happen to them
