Нет, я не к тому, что это -- впервые.
Но сегодня -- от Михаила Эпштейна.

Я когда-то был подписан у него на рассылку про новые слова.
Потом рассылка умерла.

Вдруг сегодня приходит письмо с subject-ом dalai lama -- от Эпштейна, чьи книжки я в юности читал с огромным интересом, пару раз видел его живьём на выступлениях ныне знаменитых поэтов, а однажды, накануне его отъезда, напросился даже встретиться (выудил телефон из редакции какого-то киношного журнала), чтобы он посмотрел мои картинки -- нужна была статья для "Советского Фото", и хотелось, чтобы это был неожиданный текст. Встреча не состоялась -- кажется, он решил, что его пасёт ГБ.

Возобновил рассылку, думаю.
Ага. Возобновил.

Subject: FW: What the Dalai Lama has to say.

This is what The Dalai Lama has to say on the millennium,
which actually began 01/01/2001 (and not 01/01/00).
All it takes is a few seconds to read and think about. Do
not keep this message. The mantra must leave your hands within 96
You will get a very pleasant surprise.This is true even if
you are not superstitious.
Instructions for Life in the new millennium from the Dalai

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
2. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
3. Follow the three R's: Respect for self, respect for others, responsibility for all your actions.
4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
6. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
7. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
8. Spend some time alone everyday.
9. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.
10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
11. Live a good, honorable life. Then, when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.
12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation.
14. Don't bring up the past.
15. Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
16. Be gentle with the earth.
17. Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.
18. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
19. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
20. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

Do not keep this message. The mantra must leave your hands within 96 hours.
You will get a very pleasant surprise (this is true even if you are not superstitious) if you send it to:

* 0-4 people: Your life will improve slightly.
* 5-9 people: Your life will improve to your liking.
* 9-14 people: You will have at least 5 surprises in the next 3 weeks.
* 15 people and above: Your life will improve drastically and everything you ever dreamed of will begin to take shape.

Ну, каково?

А ещё -- он шлёт так, что видны все остальные адресаты. Компания удивительная подобралась: Баян Ширянов, parker, frei (все, заметьте, с разными адресами), Настик Грызунова, алексрома... :)
