A facility turning a foul

Filed under: Fun — Tanveer Badar @ 1:23 AM

Yesterday, sitting with a bunch of programmers in my team, most of us received a ridiculous message/variants over a period of three or four hours. It said that if you get a call from a certain number you will die because of the frequency used for transmission or the frequency of voice issued from the speaker damaged your neurons. The number mentioned was of course bogus.

We chatted about trying it with land line, one sent a message to that number to see what would happened. All that happened was a response from the carrier provider that that particular message could not be delivered.

I immediately thought that someone was trying to shoot Ring 3. This gave me the idea to invent some of my own hoaxes. I sent the message:

“If you receive any SMS from [my own number], you will die within a week.

Stupid, this message was sent from my number, use your own number when forwarding it to others.”
