I thought I'd pass this along to those that dont go around robbing others. It was sent to me in an e mail.

          What is an Automatic Teller Machine Machine ?

          When people say ATM Machine they are being repetitive.....

            That's very true, but it has become part of the language, language.

            Wink

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              Thanks Lottogroups, Todd and Tenaj. Whatever it was I thought I'd pass it along as it sounds like a good idea. I hope the do pass a bill like that one day.

              Your right DoubleDown. My mistake.

               

               Good Luck,

                Judging from all those carets you pasted it from an email that had been forwarded at least once before reaching you. For anyone who doesn't already know, a good rule of thumb is that any email that tells you you should forward it is probably something you shouldn't send to people. No matter how good or sensible the message is, the request to forward it is probbaly the most comon characteristic of hoaxes and urban legends. snopes.com is a really good site, but if you ever have any doubts about something you get all oyu need to remember is google. 99% of the time 3 or 4 words from the message will tell you right away if it's true or not, usually just by looking at the results page.

                  Thanks CoinToss.

                  Thanks KY Floyd.

                  Funny thing is that I have my home phone # in my cell phone listed under ICE ( in case of emergency) . That also came to me in an e mail . Never know what to believe though .

                   

                   Good Luck,

                  Blackie.

                    thanks blackie and everyone.after a rash of ATM burglaries here in memphis i started taking enough money that i need for the week and sticking it in my safe at home.i then take enough money with me that i think i'll need each time i go on a errand and leave the rest here.i also keep the money i take on errands in my sock and a ten dollar bill in my pocket.that way if i get robbed the bastards will get ten dollars.the real loot is in my sock.its sad when we have to resort to these measures.i have no respect or tolerance for thugs.

                      Thankas LottoMike. I used to take a razor and slice the inside of my jeans at the waistband and tuck a couple of hundreds in there just in case.

                       

                       Good Luck,

                      Blackie.
