                                   or
                        How To Fake Cold Symptoms


  Now all you dorks sitting out there in front of your crummy little mono-
chrome monitors, we all know you will do anything to stay home and waste your
time calling BBSes.  So, this little file is going to teach you how to fake
being sick.  This is an important technique that can be used to get out of just
about everything, so make sure you get it.

across you forehead, the friction will heat your forehead up, and fool your
mom.  Get a hot washcloth and hold it to your forehead, don't make it too hot
or your mother will think you are on fire.  If your mother uses a thermometer:
Rub the thermometer between your hands causing friction again and giving a

MENTAL TECHNIQUES:

  Make you mom think you are sick by looking unappealing.  Pretend that you are
about making you go to school or whereever.  Remember it hurts them more than
t hurts you.  Oh, don't get better too soon either or your parent will know
there is a scam going on.  Once, you have your parents convinced you have them
at your will, make them fix meals for you and do all kinds of things (Remember
