Coincidence...(Anyone receive this email?)

I received this email and just wanted to know what you all thought of this.
I find it quite bizarre.

"The new U.S. $20 dollar bill contains
hidden pictures of
the World Trade Center
and Pentagon attacks!
Yes! see for yourself...

1st) FOLD A NEW $20 BILL THIS WAY

2nd) CONTINUE TO FOLD THIS WAY
Compare your fold precisely to this picture

3rd) FOLD THE RIGHT SIDE UNDER,
exactly as you folded the left side.
You'll immediately see the Pentagon ablaze. (red circle)

4th) NOW FLIP IT OVER AND SEE OTHER SIDE
The Twin Towers of the World Trade Center are
hit and smoking.

What are the odds that a simple geometric folding of the $20 bill
would accidentally contain a representation of both terror attacks?
COINCIDENCE? YOU DECIDE!"

Not too sound skeptical, but I do not consider it a "simple fold," and I consider the likeness of the images to be a bit of a stretch.

This should go over big with the people who saw SATAN's image in the smoke.

What do you mean?
I received this from a friend who recieved it from someone else, etc. It's one of those emails that travels around and I was just wondering if anyone else here had received it.

You know you shouldn't download attachments from those type of e-mails, right?

I know. When I do download attachments I always scan it with an anti-virus program that I have.

wow that was rather interesting but I think that it is just coincidence- you know there is a term or theory for this, but I cant think what it is, but sometimes our subjective views and opinions will 'read' anything into something or in the case here if you look hard enough at any situation, item, article ect you can extrappolate it into anything for your own purpose- now I dont know if that makes any sense- I am sure that there is an easier way of saying what I wanted to say and some better analogies to use

THAT is the big question. I don't think I want to know the answer.

Lise, I was hoping that this wasn't a crank.

I've seen the $20 bill thing, my brother showed me. It's a stretch at best.

Sunday all the lights of London / Shining, sky is fading red to blue / I'm kicking through the Autumn leaves / And wondering where it is you might be going to

No way is this a coincidence. A friend of my brother-in-law told him about this. See, this was done by some low-level Treasury employee several years ago as a warning to the American people, but we were too much asleep to see it. He overheard Gov. G.W. Bush of Texas discussing with the CIA, FBI, NSA, and Unocal how they could start a wicked cool war in a few years if he got elected, and all they would have to do is set up a little domestic terrorism. The U.S. Treasury employee heard all this and slipped these glaringly obvious clues in front of every american, but we missed it.
