Make money with Paypal


First how to make thousands of dollars in cash overflowing your paypal account.

be interested in making some extra free money alongside
of what you are already doing. After all, we could all use
some extra income, no matter what we do!$! How does $20,000

Maybe you have seen an older version of this $5 letter going around,
but WHAT IF you haven't seen this NEWEST version??

time to sink in and you realize THIS VERSION is SIMPLE,
CHEAT PROOF, LEGAL, and SPAM FREE!! Finally a proven method

If you are already working a home business, you can do this one along
with it. If not, this is the easiest way to earn $$$ online that you've
ever seen! Just be sure to read it all...take your time, come back to it...
go over and over it, you won't be sorry.
WHAT IF I share with you a way to make some fast and easy cash, using
a copy of this letter and the simplest Internet Payment System around?
You have most likely seen or heard about
"The Letter" $5.00 program that was recently televised
on 20/20, OPRAH WINFREY, and an article published in the Wall Street
Journal on 6/16/2001. If not, here it is!!
WHAT IF it took only a half hour to set it up? Even if you are already
in another program, stay with it, but do yourself a favor and
DO THIS ONE as well.
There is NO LIMIT to the income you can generate from this business!!
You can do it over and over again, ANY TIME you need extra income.
THE FACTS ARE SIMPLE;- IF YOU NEED TO MAKE A FEW
THOUSAND DOLLARS REALLY FAST, THEN THIS PROGRAM
I'M GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU IS THE WAY TO DO IT!
IT'S THE FASTEST, EASIEST PROGRAM YOU WILL EVER DO!!!
Please read all of this, right to the very last sentence.
If you don't have time now, then SAVE THIS LETTER, and read it later.
Everyone has heard about " PayPal" ( if you haven't you will soon)
and, when I came across this concept I knew it
would work because, as a member of Pay Pal, I had
already experienced their efficiency and excellent standing.
PayPal is the simplest method of making and receiving payments online
anyone has ever seen.! Anyone with an email address can join, for FREE!
Please read further before you go there...
You can complete this whole process in less than one hour and you
will never forget the day you decided to do so!!! Oh!
Did I say FAST? By fast I mean 'the speed of the
Internet-type fast.' Everything is done on the
Internet by E-mail. And, if you abide by the rules, it is NOT
considered SPAM, so it's perfectly legal!NEED PROOF? Here are just two testimonials from
individuals who decided to invest nothing more than a
little of their time.
TESTIMONIALS FROM:
Tony Stevens, Vandenberg AFB, CA:
Hey! I got your e-mail! YOU ROCK! I sent it to all of
our frat brothers.....and while I haven't seen my $20
grand yet, I'm up to $8,285. Hook me up when you run
this program again........
Mary Gathers, Columbia, SC:
Hey cuz! This is Mary. I only have one thing to say to
you... OH MY GOD! I sent 20 e-mail's out like you said
and went on vacation. When I got back, my account was
up to over $12,000! I owe you!
GETTING STARTED.
If you're not already a user, the very first thing you
need to do is go to PayPal and SIGN UP. It takes two minutes
and PayPal will deposit $5.00 in your account once you start
using it. That makes this program FREE!
HERE'S THE LINK:

BE SURE TO USE THE LINK ABOVE, THEN SIGN UP FOR A
PREMIER (FREE) ACCOUNT OR YOU'LL BE LIMITED TO
ACCEPTING $100 DOLLARS ONLY!!!
YOU WILL MAKE MUCH MORE THAN THIS!!!
Then...... SEND a $5.00 payment from your PayPal account
($5.00 you can earn back from Paypal, which makes this program FREE!)
to the FIRST email address in this letter (No.1) along with a note
saying "Please add me to your mailing list."
BE PREPARED TO GET EXCITED.... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
Don't laugh! Try this while you wait for the others to start working.
One half hour of work to get started - no mailing lists. No printing,
copying or waiting and the concept is 100% legal (refer to US
Lottery Laws, Title 18, Section 1302 and 1341, or Title 18,
Section 3005 in the US code, also in the code of Federal
Regulations, Volume 16, Sections 255 and 436, which state a
roduct or service must be exchanged for money received).
This version has nothing to do with Postal Laws, as it' EMAIL
ONLY.
Here's How It Works. Unlike many other PayPal programs, this
THREE LEVEL PROGRAM costs only $5, that's right, only $5 ONCE,
which is much more realistic and brings much, much faster results.
No cheating can occur (Don't be fooled by other PayPal
letters that mention cheaters) as Paypal only allows one Account per
person.
Because it is so easy, the response rate is VERY
HIGH, VERY FAST-Internet E-mail FAST-and you will
start seeing results in less than one week! JUST IN TIME FOR NEXT
MONTHS BILLS! You need only mail out 20 copies, to start with.
Start right away, as soon as you pay the #1 email address below!
Send to personal contacts, reply to people who send their programs
to you as they are already working on the web, and they know these
programs work. They are already believers in the system!
Once you have paid the $5 to the number one (No. 1) email position,
please send an email to the No.3 postion, with "THANKS I'VE JOINED" in
the subject (topic) area, and I'll send you a copy of the "Follow Up
Letter" that is FULL of TIPS and HINTS on where to obtain
THOUSANDS of spam free email addresses to send to, where
to find free web based email accounts to send your emails from,
instructions on how NOT to lose a web based email account, and much,
much MORE.This program is MUCH, MUCH FASTER and has a
HIGHER RESPONSE RATE than any other program!
Even if you are already in another program, stay with it, but do
yourself a favor and DO THIS ONE as well. START RIGHT NOW!
It's simple and will only cost $5.00 max. It will pay off long
before others even begin to receive letters! Just give ONE
person a $5.00 gift (REMEMBER THOUGH, this $5.00 is the $5.00
YOU GET BACK WHEN YOU START USING YOUR new PayPal account).
That's all! If you already have a PayPal account, please still donate a
$5.00 GIFT to the person in the No.1 spot and add your name on the list
at No.3 position having moved up the remaining two. Follow
the simple instructions and in two weeks you will have approximately
$20,000 in your PayPal account!
Because of the VIRTUALLY ZERO INVESTMENT, SPEED and
HIGH PROFIT POTENTIAL, this program has a VERY HIGH
RESPONSE RATE! All from just one $5.00 transaction that
you can get back from PayPal!!!
Follow These Simple Instructions: Click below to open your
free Paypal account, and be sure to open a Premiere Account, as it
does not limit you to how much money you can have deposited to your
account. Then come https:
www.paypal.com/refer/pal=59XAPNTAH869A
back to these instructions.

Once you link to the Paypal site using the link above,
open your PayPal account, and E-mail the $5.00 payment to
the FIRST name on the list (#.1) along with a "note" in the NOTE AREA
of that page, saying "SUBSCRIBE ME TO YOUR MAILING LIST".
Be certain to add this note, as this is what KEEPS THIS LETTER LEGAL.
Instructions on how to send a payment are under "SEND MONEY" at
the Paypal site. It's soooo easy!!
Only the first person on the list gets your $5.00 gift.
Edit the list, REMOVING the FIRST #.1) EMAIL ADDRESS FROM THE LIST
after you have made the $5 payment.
Then, move the other two email addresses UP and
ADD YOUR PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS in the #3 position.
Don't try to add your name in the first place in order to earn money
fast!
If you do that, you will ONLY reach people you send e-
mail to then your name will be immediately removed
from the No.1 place and you won't reach thousands of people!
But if you add your name on the No.3 place, there will be millions of
people receiving and sending e-mail's later, when your name is No.1!!!
NOTE: Do not forget to replace the PayPal referring URL in
the body of the letter with your own PayPal referring URL.
You can find YOUR referring URL at Paypal after you join, just
look at the bottom of the first page once you sign into Paypal,
and click on the "referrals" link.
Send out 20 copies (minimum) of this letter, but
only to people you know, or respond to MLM offers. Once
you've paid the person in the #1 position, be sure to email
the person in the #3 position, with "Thanks, I've Joined" as
a topic in the reply. You will then receive a follow up letter that
is full of SPAM free hints and tips to insure your success in
this version of the PayPal letter.
ALSO NOTE: By sending this letter and the payment via E-MAIL,
the response time is much faster... ELECTRONIC TRANSFER
INTERNET FAST!
Consider this! Millions of people surf the Internet
everyday, all day, all over the world! Here are the 3 people
to start with. Sign up, send $5.00 to the first person, move
the other two up to Nos 1 & 2 respectively and add your own
e-mail address at No.3. Be sure to use your email address
that is associated with your PayPal account.

*************************************
There are fifty thousand new people who get on the
Internet every month! An excellent source of email addresses
is the people who send you offers by email.
The source is UNLIMITED! It boggles my mind to
think of all the possibilities! Mail, or should I
say 'E-mail', your letter and payment TODAY! It's
so easy. One hour of your time, THAT'S IT!
To send your letter by e-mail, copy this ENTIRE PAGE

3. Start (compose) a new E-mail message (make sure
it's PLAIN TEXT so everyone can view it!)
4. Fill in your Address and Subject Box
5. Go to "edit" and "paste" (Then you can format it
anyway you want!)Now you can edit the addresses with ease. Delete the
top name, adding your name and address to the bottom
of the list, then simply changing the numbers. Remember,
YOUR NAME goes on the BOTTOM and the other 2 names move up. But DO NOT
forget to send $5.00 via PayPal (along
with your note) to the position #1 - TOP E-MAIL
address before deleting it!
NOTE: Be sure to replace the PayPal referring URL in
this e-mail of the letter with your own PayPal

When your name reaches the first position in a few

The money will be sent to you by 2,000 to 4,000 people
like yourself, who are willing to invest one half hour to

total of $20,000 in $5.00 bills in your mailbox (account)

real money that you can spend on anything you wish!

GO AHEAD--- TRY IT!!! EVEN IF YOU MAKE JUST 3 OR 4
THOUSAND, WOULDN'T THAT BE NICE?
IF YOU TRY IT, IT WILL PAY! CAN YOU DO IT AGAIN? OF
COURSE YOU CAN---
This plan is structured for everyone to send only 20
letters each to start. However, you are certainly not limited
to 20. Mail out as many as you want. Every 20 letters
you send has a return of $20,000 or more. If you can
E-MAIL forty, sixty, eighty, or whatever, GO FOR IT!
THE MORE YOU PUT INTO IT THE MORE YOU GET OUT OF IT!
Each time you run this program, just follow steps 1
through 3 and everyone on your gift list benefits!

mailing lists to buy (and wait for), and trips to the
printer or copier, and you can do it again and again
with your regular groups or gift givers, or start up
a new group. Be SURE and PAY the first person on the
list. This is proof that you paid to get put on the
list which is the service rendered to make all this
legal!!! Why not? It's working! Each time you receive
an MLM offer, respond with this letter! Your name will
climb to the number one position at dizzying rates.
Follow the simple instructions, and above all, PLEASE
PLAY FAIR. That's the key to this program's success.
Your name must run the full gamut on the list to produce
the end results. Sneaking your name higher up on the list
WILL NOT produce the results you think, and it only cheats
the other people who have worked hard and have earned the
right to be there. So please, play by the rules and the
$$$ will come to you!
$$$ E-MAIL YOUR LETTERS OUT TODAY! Together we will
prosper! $$$ You are probably skeptical of this,
especially with all the different programs out there
on the web, but if you don't try this you will
never know. That's the way I felt. I'm glad I did it!
I've been watching this type of program for years and
this is about as easy and fast as you can get it and
it can even be free to try now with Pay Pal, no stamps,
no envelopes, no copies to be made - just a little effort
and faith!!! This program really "Keeps It Short and Simple"!
OH BY THE WAY....each time someone signs up with your link
under your name... you also make $5.00 from PayPal...
so they pay to open up the account but they also pay you when
someone signs up from being referred by you. AWESOME!
Let's all make some serious money

For my project, I plan to examine Jewish attitudes toward martyrdom, and I would like to focus on the sacrifice of children and its significance in the formation of early Judaism and rebellion to the inevitable Roman rule. Preferring death to rule by the Romans, the mass suicide at Masada is recorded as a true testament to the will of Eleazar and his comrades. I wish to look at reactions by Roman Imperials, through texts such as Livy, Plutarch, and Josephus, and compare those to early Jewish narratives especially the later genre of Jewish literature which discusses a continuation of the child-sacrifice at Masada. The key factor in this case study will be to stress the importance of heroic honor so central to the life of the Romans versus the complete sacrifice to God as was emphasized in Jewish tradition.

I would like to examine Origen's treatise Exhortation to Martyrdom as it reflects the outlook of the Christian community living in the second century CE during a time of persecution. This document serves to illustrate the importance of martyrdom in the theology of the Church and to what purpose. I would like to include an analysis of the following points:

1. That martyrdom testified to the Church's teaching that it was the worthiest goal to rise above the urge for self-preservation. Therefore, martyrdom was the ultimate test of the individual Christian's willingness to prefer a spiritual to a corporeal existence;

2. Martyrdom as a second baptism, providing forgiveness not only of the martyr's sins but the sins of those around them;

3. Martyrdom as an imitation of Christ and as a means to perfection. By Christ's death and resurrection he overcame death and defeated the devil by removing his most powerful weapon: the fear of death. By imitating Christ the martyr becomes perfect as Christ himself is perfect.

4. Martyrdom brings the Resurrection into the present as a real, living event, and by doing so re-enacts the redemptio of the faithful.

 Women martyrs are a unique lot in classical literature. While they remain feminine and dutiful, their actions carry them above the common people (women and men included), the leaders, and male heroes. Their willingness to die for a belief, the gods, or the nation, bestows them with an unearthly glow, a depiction reserved for martyrs and the gods. In this way they become greater than themselves, however, as women they still maintain a social position indicative of their sex. What I find interesting are the similarities between the roles of female martyrs and women’s roles in society and the family.
 In Euripides’ Iphigeneia in Aulis, the character of Iphigeneia represents an incredibly devoted and heroic woman who recognizes her true calling in life. She travels to her father’s side under the ruse of marriage but with her innocence and purity all too apparent, her mother escorts her to the military camps. When she and her mother learn that she is not to be married, and instead is to be offered in sacrifice to Artemis, she is overwhelmed with trepidation. Her mother Clytemnestra also dreads the sacrifice and forcefully speaks against her husband to no effect. However, upon considering the situation, Iphigeneia’s childish nature disappears and she willingly submits to the demand.
 It is this transformation that is important to analyzing female martyrs. While the role seems more suited to a man because of the required bravery, it suits Iphigeneia because of her strength and sense of duty to Greece. Iphigeneia’s name even bears the mark of strength. In Greek, Iphi- means strength, resulting in a full name meaning “she who is born with strength/force”(Lyons, 140). In her self-sacrifice, Iphigeneia transcends the mortal world while fulfilling her female duties. By comparing the two central female characters in Euripides’ play we can see the similarities between their nature’s and their social roles, regardless of the one’s transformation into a glowing martyr. I will use these two women to show that being a female martyr is consistent with the traditional social roles with which women ascribe to.

My topic is not altogether defined yet, but I would like to research the actual (if we can safely speak of reality in the ancient world) life and death of Cato and how his death influenced philosophy, literature, and the acceptance of suicide as a viable escape from unpleasant situations. To do this, I will be looking at writers like Martial and Vergil and philosophical movements like Stoicism.

I realize I am trying, once again, to write a paper about "the whole world" as I think our fearless leader put it, but I fully expect one element or another to grab me and drag me along while I'm researching. Right now, I want to keep my options open. In a week, I expect I'll have a more focused topic.

"Not being afraid of killing someone else means you're not afraid of killing yourself."
-Sonatine
"The condition of a person is revealed by his dreams. It would be good to make companions of your dreams and to put forth effort."
-Hagakure
For my final paper I would like to use the 1993 film Sonatine as a document to study. The film was written, directed and stars Takeshi Kitano, one of Japan's foremost actors (etc.). I cannot pretend to be an expert on his films or an expert in Japanese film-making or culture. I find that Sonatine is an interesting, visual example of stoicism in the face of danger and death and the acceptance of one's own death. It also toys with the idea of humankind's inability to change fate.
The movie begins in Tokyo with a group of yakuzas (gangsters). A hierarchy is immediately evident with the boss and his henchman (Takahashi) giving the orders and Murakawa carrying them out with the help of lieutenants and a retainer (Ken). The boss wants Murakawa to take some men and go to Okinawa to act as a mediator for the Nakamatsu clan (Nakamatsu is a "brother" to the boss) and the Anan clan. Murakawa has some reservations about the job, especially as it becomes clear that he and Takahashi do not get along. Despite his suspicions, he goes to Okinawa to discover that Nakamatsu did not beg the boss for a mediation team, but agreed to greet them only after the boss insisted. The job of peacekeeper turns quickly to that of prey when their headquarters are blown up and some of his men are killed in a bar. A small group of men, three more senior yakuzas plus Ken and an Okinawan retainer flee to a beach house to lie low while awaiting orders from Tokyo. They amuse themselves with games. Murakawa catches the boys shooting cans off each others' heads, William Tell style, and proposes a game of Russian roulette. As he holds the gun to his head, the boys try to intervene. The gun is empty and Murakawa walks away laughing. He later dreams of the same event, only this time the gun has one bullet left and he shoots himself. Waking up he walks to the beach only to witness a man assaulting a woman. Murakawa shoots the man and the woman becomes a frequent visitor. No word from Tokyo, but Nakamatsu tells the men that the Anan clan will make peace, on the condition that the Nakamatsu clan disband. Murakawa will be banished. Although he does not want to disband, he leaves the decision up to his men. Nakamatsu and then Ken are shot by a mysterious henchman and Murakawa decides to end it. He captures Takahashi, who is stoic until faced with torture. He reveals that their boss was greedy because Murakawa was getting rich off his territory, he planned to kill him and take it for himself. Takahashi offers to be a negotiator to Murakawa if he wants to take over the entire clan's territory. He refuses and has the only living yakuza, a teenager, kill him. Then he calmly, methodically assassinates the members of the clans that tried to destroy him and take his property. Returning to the beach house, Murakawa commits suicide, fulfilling the prophesy seen in his dream.
In examining this movie, I would like to try to make comparisons to the samurai way of life and the Japanese code of honor. Both Ken and the Okinawan boy see the men pointing a gun at them, only Ken faces him, the other boy runs away and lives. Takahashi is quick to betray his boss under the persuasion of pain, yet this treachery does not save his life. Murakawa although he admits "when you're scared all the time, you almost wish you were dead," never shies from danger. I am interested in the stoicism of the older yakuza and their embrasure of violence and death as necessary aspects of life. There is also the importance of fate versus choice. One of their games is to imitate a children's toy of paper wrestlers, knocked about by the merciless hands that control them. After his dream, he realizes that death is his future and he accepts it by bringing it about by his own hand.
