Coworker just showed me this. smilies/eek.gif

If you have Word, type Q33NY, all in caps.

Highlight the text and change your font size to say, 28.

(* Now put a pad on the table to protect your jaw when it drops. smilies/wink.gif )

Highlight the text again and change your font to Wingdings 1.

smilies/scared.gif WTF is that shit???!!!!

That is toooooo fucked up. smilies/mad.gif

I see what it did w/Wingdings, but does the "Q33" have any significance or is it just random characters? If so, that would be creepy... smilies/rolleyes.gif

I was told it had something to do with one of the flight numbers going in to NY, but I don't know how much truth there is to that.

Has anyone else received the picture of the guy standing on the wtc with the plane coming in right behind him? The FBI found the camera in the rubble?

Will post the picture soon, though I'm not sure it's legit smilies/confused.gif

I think the q33 stuff is fake too, I had a look around and it doesnt seem to appear as any flight number or anything - it just seems to be a smartarse at work

goo's golden rule - 95% of the shit like this you get sent via email, is utter bullshit.

None whatsoever. It's not even the right format for a flight number from what I've heard (I have seen this posted elsewhere).

I think that picture is fake. There's the 9/11/01 date in the lower right hand corner which probably means it was taken with a cheaper camera that doesn't have a manual shutter on it. At the speed that plane was going I seriously doubt a cheap camera like that would be able to capture a plane in such good detail perfectly centered with no blurring. It's almost impossible.

That q33 thing really is the way most airlines classify their flights, but I dont remember a flight 33 anywhere. smilies/confused.gif

The picture of the plane is a fake.

The plane in that pic is an American Airlines aircraft. The planes in the WTC crash were United.

Plus, there is NO WAY a camera would survive a 110 story fall, amid TONS and TONS of rubble, not to mention the intense heat of the flames and jet fuel.

That is why you don't see anything wooden...the heat was so intense, everything (ie: desks, cpu's, bodies, etc) were incinerated.

From the website mentioned above

"The last "coincidence" is strictly a manufactured one. Although typing the characters "Q33NY" using the Wingdings font does produce the string of images shown below (an airplane, two pieces of paper that sort of resemble buildings, a skull and crossbones, and a Star of David), there was no flight "Q33NY" involved in the terrorist attack on New York City (the two flights who planes were crashed into the building were American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175), nor does that string correspond to any airplane's FAA registry number. "

The first plane to hit was AA11 which flew over Manhattan and hit the North tower. The picture is obviously a fake though smilies/smile.gif

snopes is one of my favorite sources for debunking some of the garbage that I get in email. smilies/biggrin.gif

The picture is a fake anyway... look at the clothing he's wearing... and isn't the observation deck on the other tower? ...and I don't think any decks are in the open any longer... WTC was all enclosed like the Sears Tower and the Hancock Center
