|E-RFD: Marketing Used Refrigerators
Subject: They Walk Among Us. . . . .

A man bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old
fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on
it saying: "Free to good home. Works great. You want it, you take it."
For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking
it. He eventually decided that people thought this deal
looked too good to be true, so he changed the sign to read:
"Fridge for sale $50."
The next day someone stole it.

distinction between the types, here, but rather offer them pretty much
as they come in -- as examples of comment and rumor from a global mind.
