Commence: Headbanging

The following has got to be one of the most INANE and STUPID emails/docs I have ever been forwarded. It’s especially headbanging if you’ve received any of those chain mails saying, “Don’t support Maxis because it’s Hindu owner does not support MUSLIM CAUSES.” Yes, it is that stupid. This will be going uncut for the time being as I’ll do the cut when I log into my WP Account after work, but for now, all I have to say is this:

Are you forwarding this email and changing the name from Exxon to Petronas dumb or what? SERIOUSLY! If you want to force prices back down, why are you supporting people like Shell, BHP, etc? Why Petronas, where the money at least will circulate in this country? Yes, we could (and most likely would) have politicians who will pocket part of the proceeds, but overall, would you rather the money flow out of the country with us never seeing it again or for it to be kept within this country?

If you tell people to stop buying Petronas because you want to force the prices down, aren’t you just giving money to other kiosks like BHP (Singapore- Need verification), Shell (British-Dutch) and Esso (US)? Hasn’t it ever occurred to you what would happen if Petronas goes bankrupt?

-_-” Bloody idiots. Original email before, formatting removed and the spelling retained. If you Google the email, the one below is modified from the one in 2006 about Exxon Mobile. Gah.


THIS IS NOT THE ‘DON’T BUY’ PETROL FOR ONE DAY, BUT IT WILL SHOW YOU HOW WE CAN GET PETROL BACK DOWN TO RM1.92 PER Litre….

This was originally sent by Phillip Hollsworth, a retired Coca Cola executive.

If you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this winter, take time to read this, PLEASE.

Phillip offered this good idea.

This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the ‘don’t buy petrol on a certain day’ campaign that was going around last April or May!

It is worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!

We are going to hit RM 2.70 a litre and it might go higher!! Want petrol prices to come down?

We need to take some intelligent, united action. The oil companies just laughed at last year’s action because they knew we would not continue to ‘hurt’ ourselves by refusing to buy petrol. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can really work.

Please read on and join with us!

By now, you’re probably thinking petrol priced at about $1.50 is cheap.

It is currently RM2.70 for regular unleaded.

Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a liter of gas is CHEAP at $1.50, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace…not sellers.

With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action.

The only way we are going to see the price of petrol come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their petrol! And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.

How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can’t just stop buying petrol.

But we CAN have an impact on petrol prices if we all act together to force a price war.

Here’s the idea: For the rest of this year, DON’T purchase ANY petrol from Petronas
the biggest price-up driver company.

If they are not selling any petrol, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Petronas petrol buyers. It’s SO simple!

Now, don’t wimp out on me at this point…keep reading and I’ll explain how simple it is to reach millions and even BILLIONS of people!!

I am sending this note to 20 people.

If each of you sends it on to at least twenty more that’s (20 x 20 = 400) ..

And those 400 send it to at least twenty more (400 x 20 = 8000 … and so on,

by the time the message reaches the fifth group of people, we will have reached over SIXTY FOUR MILLION consumers!!!!!


20×20 = 400

400×20 = 8,000

8,000×20 = 160,000

160,000×20 = 3,200,000

3,200,000×20 = 64,000,000

64,000,000×20 = 12,800,000,000

That’s 12.80 Billion people folks, who will have been contacted!!!!!

Unbelievable?? Do the math and see for yourself!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 20 people. That’s all!
I’ll bet you didn’t think we had that much potential, did you!

Acting together we can make a difference..

If this message makes sense to you, then please pass it on.

THEY will LOWER THEIR PRICES TO BELOW THE RM1.92 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN.

THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

It’s simple – send the message along to others and choose to not buy petrol from Petronas.

TWENTY FIVE POINT SIX BILLION people:



Now THAT’s people power.



LET’S JUST DO IT ! ! !



More power to you friend.
