"AAJ TAK" - the fastest news service spreading rumours

How can people be so stupid?
well.. just yesterday while I was out attending a marriage... one of my relatives came to me sounding distressed... apparently he had been watching the news and "aaj tak" news channel reported some 27 deaths .. and the cause?
You get a call from an unkown number.. and when you answer the call ... you instantly die of brain hemorrhage. This is because the call activates a virus which sends out high-frequency waves...

I mean.. how stupid is that!
First... how the hell does a call activate a virus?

Second... Are the handset makers stupid enough to provide speakers that can emit such high frequency tones? (well ... even NORMAL programs do go wrong.. and they are aware of that.. so they will never take such a risk)

Third... Why does the screen turn red?.. does the mobile OS somehow get a premonition of the forthcoming death? :P

and Last... technical.. but well.. even the techies were taken for a ride by this rumour...
Do you know the concept of bands? .. no signal outside a band of frequencies is accepted or transmitted.. bandpass filters ensure that.. so how the heck does this new virus circumvent that?

i believe it....
aaj tak is infallible, best news ever...
yesterday they were showing a snake giving birth directly to babies, no eggs involved... its absolutely essential and path breaking news that they show, not stupid irrelevant and incorrect things...

i think aaj tak doesnt hire reporters anymore..they just pick up some third grade writers to conjure up any damn story..somehow add the visuals etc..n lo n behold...u have a breaking news..why spent so much on high profile reporters!!!
