Alpha or Beta?

A girl sent me the following e-mail:

We are participating in a collective, constructive, and TASTY experiment. As such, you have been invited to be part of a recipe exchange concept. We hope you will participate. We have picked those we think would make this fun.

Please send a recipe to the person whose name is in position 1 (even if you don’t know him/her) and it should be something quick, easy and without rare ingredients. Actually, the best one is the one you know in your head and can type right now. Don’t agonize over it; it is one you make when you are short of time.

After you’ve sent the recipe to the person in position 1 below and only to that person, copy this letter into a new email, move my name to position 1 and put your name in position 2. Only my and your name should show when you send your email. Send to 20 friends BCC (blind copy).  You should receive 36 recipes. It’s fun to see where they come from! Seldom does anyone drop out because we all need new ideas. The turnaround is fast as there are only 2 names on the list and you only have to do it once.

I await your adjudication.

(No, it’s not a chain letter or otherwise a scam.)

    Sounds like its just a chain letter, probably from a site that collects the responses to see what emails addresses are real.

    Sounds dumb.

    “1 cup shit
    2 cups not giving a fuck
    and a pinch of don’t email me again”

    Or you can punk them with a really nasty recipe. That would be fun.

    Omega if you respond. Beta if you read it and it wasn’t from someone you know well.

    Chain letter. Unless you and I unwittingly run in the same circles.
