"This photo was taken in a hospital after the patient was in an accident where he was responsible for a young woman's death. It is said that when you receive this image and do not send it to at least five people, the woman will look for you during the night to collect your soul."


http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_slideshow29a.htm

from a segment on a webside debunking myths circulating on the internet, those annoying things that say, "FWD:  It's true and if you dont..."

What i want to know is: how do we know she'll collect our soul?  Did she tell someone she was going to circulate her image online and collect the souls of those who ignore it?  If there are no survivors, HOW CAN THERE BE A LEGEND?!

Oh, yes, further reading on said website says the image is from a movie.

I was instantly reminded of The Exorsist, although I am sure its not from there.

This is so daft it is funny. Sounds like something those kids from Belfast would tell you.  rolleyes.gif

Snopes is a great site for Urban Legends. It has a team who research them, find their origin and determines whether there is any truth to them  thumbsup.gif

And I don't think you needed to post again just to remind me that you've established something I've added my oppinion to. I meant by 'rest assured' that I'd actually received this email and was still here mad.gif

If I was a vengeful ghost with the power to kill, I would think of less lame things to make people do than send 5 e-mails.
