I used to do it. Was defiantly proud of my ability to carry it off. Sometimes had a good laugh the next day. But after a friend introduced me to this young woman via email, it's hard to even think that I did it, let alone raise a smile about it:
The reason is that she doesn't look like that anymore. This isn't another email urban legend. Verification and some useful links are here.
Or you can just go to her page and watch video interviews of both her and the man who did this to her, look at the powerpoint slideshow, or maybe even decide that you might want to help her out.
Her name is Jacqueline Saburido. Sorry, child, I don't know what to say. But I do still fervently hope that suffering has meaning.
