Hi everyone!

We can now make it possible for extraterrestrial beings
interested in our DNA to have it without having them abduct us
from out beds, take us aboard their crafts, undress and poke us
with strange instruments before returning us to our homes in
someone else's pyjamas. For just $50 you can send your DNA
directly to them.

A modern European Ariane 5 rocket will take your DNA into
geosychronous orbit afterwhich a small rocket will be fired to
take your DNA from high Earth orbit towards Jupiter whose
gravity will fling your DNA out of the solar system. No kidding.
For your 50 bucks you even get a membership kit which includes a
poster, a lapel pin and a certificate among other things, and of
course, a plastic bag for your DNA.

The mission is called "Encounter 2001" and is associated with
Celestis Inc. of Houston, the people who pioneered
space burials.  See the following web site for details.
