Ignorance in all its glory
From the "Too Stupid To Live" files Pakistan brings us this...

Quote:
Mobile service providers in Pakistan have been inundated by calls from subscribers worried by a prank message that they could die of a deadly virus being transmitted via their phones.
The rumour was so effective that some mosques in the country's biggest city, Karachi, made announcements that people were being killed by a mobile virus and they should be aware of God's wrath.
In a prank reminiscent of the plot in the hit Hollywood movie The Ring in which people die within a week after watching a video, the prankster warned users that a deadly virus transmitted through phones had killed 20 people.
There are more than 52 million mobile users among 160 million people in Pakistan.
Farah Hussain, a spokeswoman for Warid Telecom, said that their customer service centres had been inundated with panicky subscribers inquiring about the so-called virus.
The cellular operators moved to calm down subscribers and said in a joint statement: "These rumours are completely baseless. They do not make any sense in technological terms."

That is what happens when your culture makes you think that the world is flat and that you should live in a cave.

Yeah, it's true.
I saw Chicken Little, and he said the sky is falling.
Pass it on.
