    ALWAYS USE LEFT EAR FOR MOBILE PHONES

    That was the heading of an e-mail from my aunty that I read when I woke up this morning. It was all in big red fonts.

    ALWAYS USE LEFT EAR FOR MOBILE PHONES

    >As received

    Save your brain


    Please use left ear while using cell (mobile), because if you use the right one it will affect brain directly. This is a true fact from Apollo medical team. Please forward to all your well wishers


    It was early and I foolishly almost believed it for a few minutes. Then after I had the first sip of my morning coffee, it finally came to me: "WTF?!?!"

    So I did some research online and it turned out that some of the e-mails of this 'warning' sent out had even this diagram to help convince people that it was ... real.

    *It turned out to be a hoax as reported by Hoax-Slayer. Click
    here to find out how/why*

    But what the diagram said didn't really matter did it. They could have had THIS for a diagram

    and yet half the people who received it WOULD HAVE believed it.

    Realising how naive some people were, I was a tempted for a while to release a hoax of my own.

    All you have to do is write a small case with loose reasoning and put in the name of a seemingly valid organisation. Example...

    -------Beginning of Leng Mou's Hoax----------
    SIT ON YOUR LEFT BUTT CHEEK WHEN YOU USE THE TOILET.

    Brussels, Belgium -Scientists from the World Health Development Body (WHDB) had recently discovered that sitting on the toilet when taking a dump can lead to brain damage in the long term.

    Prof Dr. Jacob Mou, Head of the World Health Development Body said

    "We have found very strong evidence in the past few days that due to our modern diet, the human body has evolved to make it such that putting weight on your right butt cheek while sitting on the toilet can cause brain damage in the long term. We strongly advise people to sit on their left butt cheeks when on the toilet and ensure that their right butt cheek is in mid-air throughout the duration of the time."
    The research was carried out for 8 years on 5,302 human participants of which 2,900 were male. It was found from the research that 53.2% of the human participants had became slow or mentally retarded by the end of the 8 year experiment.

    ------End of Leng Mou's Hoax-----

    THERE YOU HAVE IT! I took 5 minutes to write this HOAX, and I bet that if I send this out by e-mail, some people will believe it and forward it around (no matter how ridicolous it sounds... seriously.. LEFT BUTT-CHEEK?!?!).

    But I'm not going to do it... neither should anyone else do it because... we are not bastards are we?

    Note:that there is no such thing as a WHDB, nor a Professor Jacob Mou.I just made it up ... but few people are going to get this in their e-mail and google "WHDB" or "PROFESSOR JACOB MOU BRUSSELS" are they...*sigh*

    So the next time you receive something stupid like that in your mailbox, VERIFY first.. because 90% of them are hoaxes.

    And the next time you see a broken toilet seat... you know the last person to sit on it reads Leng Mou?

    • why are people just so...er... i hesitate to use the word stupid/idiot/dumb/retarded/etc but then I would have a hard time describing them. I get hoaxes on friendster all the damn time and my reply was to always take the last hoax I received, modify it so that it becomes even more ridiculous then forward it.

      Sorta like, there was one floating around about having to forward the message or else you will be deleted from friendster so I re-wrote it so that it claims that the reader must get the home addresses of all the people in their friend list, print it out, pray facing North East and having two tausa-pau placed beneath their armpits while chanting the addresses. Fail to do so and may the semen of the gods bind them to the earth.

      And you know what? It never works. I still get the delete acc thingies every now and then. MAHAI!

    • I have a friend who recently gave up her full time job to become a Health Consultant (read: Nu Skin). All the sudden I am getting a barrage of health information in my email account, most of which are not backed by any scientific evidence. I am so tempted to send her a link to this entry………grrrrrrrrr!

    • What really winds me up are those chain mails which curse your mother and father. I don't care if it's cursing my love life, etc. But cursing family, that's just wrong!
