YELLOW ROAD HANDOUT

got a "Yellow Road Handout" today at UL main gate, quite strange, some sort of chain letter style thing or something, apparently UCC also got some: http://www.halflife2.net/forums/showthread.php?t=148165
This is the first page typed up by someone from above forum-

YELLOW ROAD
HANDOUT
This is a handout for a book.
The book is about a test that
People do aged 18-28 years



Yellow Road
This is the handout for a book which is based upon a Health Test that begins when test takers recieve their childhood vaccinations. There are six tests and three stages within this Health Test and the character will start the tests aged 0935 weeks old.

Stage 1: 0935-1045
The character will awake one morning to find that there is an extreme pain in his/her backside. This pain will be the result of an implant, which was placed in the characters bottom while sleeping. The following chapters portray the test taker as a mixed-up young adult who is too ashamed to visit a doctor, as he/she believes that something untoward happened and that this is the reason for the pain.

In order to understand that the implant comes as part of his/her Health Test, the character must have an examination by a consultant after being referred by a doctor. The consultant will diagnose and treat 'Piles' with an injection of Phenol Oil. After the character takes the actions of paying for the costs of this treatment, he/she will learn why the implant/tracking device is included as part of his/her Health Treatment.

Stage 2: 1045-1465
Consists of the main content of the book and will follow the test taker though the most difficult period of his/her life. This stage will ebgin with the central character awakening one morning to find that he/she is in a drug induced high, all day every day. This occurs through the administration of a substance, which is given by a tester while the test taker is sleeping.

The character will discover at this stage that he/she is partaking in tests which are passed through receiving vaccinations. After completing the vaccination schedules for the first-five health tests, the character will learn that he/she can win Prizes from enabling other test takers to pass all of their six health tests. Handout Distributors win the Prizes for their families, the Third World, local governments and themselves.

Stage 3: 1465-1880
The character will become aware that there is a sixth test at the same time as he/she realises that his/her fellow test takers have implants placed in their ears after they finish the second stage. The character will have previous knowledge of the implants because he/she received them as part of another test which began aged 0934 weeks.

To pass the final health test he/she must, between the ages of 1446 to 1608 weeks, get three Typhoid Fever vaccinations each sperated by at least thirteen weeks, followed by one year after the third by a fourth vaccination. At this time the character learns Prize Money can be won by Technological Distributors for the Third World, their families and themselves, through enabling people to pass the final health test.

Handout recipients can technologically transfer the handout contents to ten people (5/5)



Anyone know whats the story with this?

My bank manager requires me to get a deposit on transactions in other currencies. If you could send €1,000 cash by registered post, I will pass the details once I have received and lodged it.

It's spreading!

My daughter just got handed this same booklet on the bus from Newry, coming home from college, by a sane-looking man who confused her with babbling on about bottoms. Looks like he was on his way to Belfast.

Thought it was a weird one-off jerk, but googled it out of curiosity and found this and one other thread of bewilderment and fear!

Seems these anal tracking devices are spreading to the North now. I'll keep my posterior firmly planted on a seat at all times!!

I was given a copy of this outside Mary I about 6 weeks ago, it's viral marketing for a book that's coming out. The guy doing the handing-out should have made it clear that the book is a piece of fiction. In fact, he was refusing to talk to people under the age of 18 because he didn't want some stupid kid to think the things in it were real.

Yup. Tragic really.
On the plus side, this book could do for Limerick what War of the Worlds did for America. 'Twould make for more interesting headlines anyway...

Is it just me, or is there something strange about the OP and the last poster having only 1 post each?

No. Especially not if you assume that the last poster got the handout, googled for the text and found this thread as the first result on the list. I'd suggest just reporting a post if you ever find it suspicious, notifies me to check it.
