You log onto the internet...
And check your email.
(Which looks something like this.)
Hey, a new message!

If you don't, bad luck will find you.
According to the email, one woman passed it on and won the lottery that week!
But a man in the Philippines broke the chain and, the next day, his wife died.
Who believes these things?

So you consider who your recipients will be.
These are difficult decisions.

Finished! You hit 'send.'
You wonder how long it will take for something lucky to happen.
Good things are totally coming your way!
