...being some form of criminal is more likely to get you killed than a telephone number?
A Bulgarian phone number featuring nine eights has been cut off after three successive owners died in suspicious circumstances. The details come courtesy of the Telegraph, which reports that the first owner of 0888 888 888 died of cancer aged 48, while the next two were gunned down following shady business dealings. Such …
Yes, a rather stupid conclusion there, that the number is in some way cursed.
I'm not sure dying of cancer is actually all that suspicious, not unless there was some Polonium & Russian spies involved.
Getting gunned down when you're a Mafia boss/Cocaine Smuggler isn't really that suspicious either and I'd say falls under the "Occupational Hazard" category.
Yes, if we were to use this method on a larger scale, we'd be forced to conclude that all phone numbers are cursed. This should be reasonable, since everyone that has ever had a phone number has already, or will eventually die. Thus, all phone numbers that have ever been used are cursed.
Popular causes of death rarely have much to do with actual causation.
If one really wanted to prevent death, he would stop things from being born/grown. 'Cause being alive is the primary cause of death.
What is this, 1635? FFS! "The owners are in leagure with Grumbledook! Burn them and their families! Cast then all to the cleaning flames! Satan walks abroad this 'morrow!"
It's a number FFS! If it had been 08882467346 and 15 people had died, would they cut it off? No!
3 people have died, one from one of the biggest killers in 20th/21st centrury, cancer. The other two were killed...but they were gangsters living very, very dangerous lifestyles! They spent all day hanging about with a bunch of headcases who'd kill you as soon as look at you!!! Doesn't take a degree from the Hendon police training college to work that out!!
Going to go lie down in darkened room, wait until humanity grows up a little bit.
