I was shown this by a fellow employee at work today, and used our computer there to do it myself. It however will work on any computer anywhere, and I guess has also been mentioned on the news:
Go to Microsoft Word Works and type in capitol letters the following ( I suggest you make it a size 48 or so type to observe it easily, you will want to....)
now highlight this with your mouse, (left click) so its in the negative;
then go to the choice of fonts and pick "Wingding" not 1 or 2 if you have that choice, only wingding. Your words will be instantly transformed into :
A plane, two "towers" a skull and cross bones, and a Star of David.

Well, to scare people more you are supposed to lie and say some nonsense about "Q33NY" being the number of one of the hijacked flights. Of course, that isn't true. Here is something equally weird. Go into Microsoft Word, and put the size at 18. Now type (minus quotes):
"On September 11, 2001, the World Trade Center will fall down (both buildings)."

Totally ON TOPIC!!!!
The feature film "Breathing Hard" (by John Lee and Eric Young with Denise Poirier) was awarded the Best Film Prize at the first ever Ashland Film Festival in Ashland, Oregon. This is the seventh award the film has received in its various screenings at film festivals in the U.S and abroad. "Breathing Hard" next shows in the Canyonlands Film Fest in Moab, Utah on Nov 1st and in the Ohio Film Festival on November 9th in Cleveland.
See it if you can.
Told you-Cleveland rocks!

This is totally off topic as well, so rather than starting a new thread, I thought I'd' toss it in here :P
Anybody see "Waking Life"? I thought is was pretty interesting, but I would have preferred if they explored the darker side of the psyche a bit more... While watching it, I constantly anticipated use of some 'Flux-style' quick, awkward, paranoid glances to convey some more distress and tension, but alas :(
