Share this and money will arrive within 4 days

My apparently superstitious family decides to share one of those silly "share this!" photos. I'd rather not antagonize my family, so I'll post it here, just to vent.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!! This year December has 5 Mondays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So share it and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui. The one who does not share, will be without money. Share within 11 minutes of reading. Can't hurt so I did it. JUST FOR FUN.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!! This December 31, 2012, comes once in eternity. This is called money bags. So share it and we'll make extremely vague claims that money will "arrive" within an extended period of time. This claim will be so vague that any number of normal events will qualify, making this claim, statistically speaking, very likely to occur without any kind of supernatural crap helping it along. Based on Chinese Feng Shui, Hindi Karma and Irish Lucky Rabbit Feet. Just like the prior vague claim, we'll make another one threatening those who aren't quite gullible enough to jump on this bandwagon by making another vague claim that they will "be without money", which also can be any number of events, and even though there's no way to track whether any of these claims actually have any basis in reality, even though they clearly have no basis in rationality, maybe that threat will get you onboard. If we ignore the concept of "Death by 1000 cuts", it can't hurt to do this just this once, nevermind the cumulative time you've wasted of your life on things like this - the sum total that could have been spent working on retirement funds, or educating yourself to get a better job. You, and the entire human race has blown unfathomable amounts of time on irrational endeavors like prayer, superstitious luck-changing objects, and wasting internet bandwidth and time on rediculous things like this. If humanity had spent its time on evidence-based investigation instead of superstition, we'd probably be off exploring the galaxy by now. Nope, doesn't hurt at all.  And just in case this doesn't work, hey, it was all in fun! Yeah, that's it. Of course, the only people laughing will be us, because we managed to dupe so many people into sharing this by preying on their misfortunes in life.
