In The Mouth of Madness!
Warning!
The GR Surgeon General has deemed the following email to be "Toxic" and extremely hazardous to one's health. Extended exposure can lead to cecity, baldness and the brain bursting from the back of one's head.

This letter may also result in severe defects, such as complete nescience or a compelling urge to cut off large chunks of flesh. Please avoid if pregnant!

The Life of a Revolutionary
From: "CoryC" (***@hcis.net)
Subject: I'm A Revolutionary
I'm A Revolutionary! I was wordering what they do. What do u do? 
What's up Cory,

Some revolutionary you are.

What do we do? We revolt like nobody's business, of course. This entails loud boisterous picketing, wearing tie-dyes and beating drums, printing embarrassing newsletters and making signs that say "Down with this sort of thing!"

Sheesh, what a silly question. We shall overcome...

Eggs, Bacon & "Revge?"
From: "Luis Domingues" (***@home.com)
Subject: Belgium Gets their Revge
We here at Belgium (makers of cheese and fine proud of it to) 
are sicken and tired of ur insults. We have had long, boring 
meetings, and came up with a simple answer. Were gonna bomb u 
f*ckheads outta the f*ckin sky. Yes Revge is f*cking sweet. 
F*ck u all! F*ck u all to Hell!
BTW u guyz kick ass in every OTHER way.
Ok Guys,

Concerned at first by your threats, we contacted President Bush about his faith-based missile defense. However, lacking faith, the GR staff tried some research instead.

Turns out that the Belgian Air Force has loaned it's plane to Canada as part of the psuedo-French foreign exchange program. You have no ability to bomb anything and your threats are as thin as your overcooked waffles.

You're just going to have to get your "Revge" somewhere else.

-GR

P.S. We kick ass in every way.

PS2 Takes Over The World.
From: Macuser Paul (***@aol.com)
Subject: Fact...or fiction?
Hey GR. I've been hearing some pretty strange stories from 
a lot of strange people, so i feel that it is my job to 
inform you of these rumors, and ask of your help to solve 
this question crisis. Many people have told me that Sudam 
Huasain (forgive the bastards spelling) has purchase hundreds 
of PS2's in advance, and has used their chips to guide 
missiles. Also, many other countries and militaries are 
doing the same. This may sound crazy, or some attempt to 
explain the PS2 shortages, but please tell me if this is 
true, the rumor has gotten to the "i saw it in the News!!!" 
stage.
-Macuser Paul
Hey Macuser,

We too saw this curious coverage on our local news. It's quite terrifying! Or at least it would be if there was any truth to it.

This silly rumor appears to have been started by the paranoid, right-wing publication, World Net Daily. Unfortunately, "legitimate" news channels run by people who understood too little about computers also picked up the story and didn't bother to check up on sources. Aside from a slew of other gaming sites, this bogus story was also reported by major news networks like NBC. How embarrassing!

It probably all began because of a brief argument within the Japanese government about whether to limit exports of the system because of potential military uses. After a couple days, the whole notion was dropped because it was nonsense.

Besides, nobody ever really needed to worry. We could kick Saddam's ass at Tekken Tag any day of the week.
