Beware of text messages that start with + and end with 111. It will kill you. At least that’s the latest rumor sweeping Egypt, where a man allegedly died after receiving a text message. This joins a crockpot brimming with crackpot theories that abound in the Arab world, mostly about Americans (whose soldiers have X-ray vision to undress Iraqi women) and especially Israel, which planted special chewing gum that makes Arab men horny.
Funny stuff, superstition, at least until women get burned to death for witchcraft.
