    At first, I couldn't believe it when I saw the title. :lol:

    I laughed out loud, one does not inadvertently send someone the wrong fax. Looks like as usual, Newt didn't do his homework first. :rofl:

    On another interesting side note:

    That's correct, no one receives a fax they weren't supposed to get. In fact, I've never received a phone message or fax that wasn't meant for me.

    My favorite one went like this: "Tom? This is Jim. We're gonna' move in tonight. Serve the warrant while they're asleep. Bringing three officers with me. Here's the address again..."

    Got that one when I was living in Palm Springs CA.

    :rolleyes: It was sent to the right person at the right fax number. Newt realized his mistake and backtracked. In fact, they did not even bother to pull the invite until someone pointed it out to their rep.

    Also, that must of been hilarious.

    Porn didn't create it - but I'll bet it inspired much of the innovation in its media delivery systems.

    It's strange isn't it, but yeah, I see new fax machines at the local computer stores even. Stood there for a moment before remembering what they were even for.
