The Q33 NY Hoax Strikes Again

In Entertainment, Internet on June 6, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: , , ,

Czechs think it is funny, Czechs think it is true, and Czechs want to entertain as many friends as possible… 

And so, I received three identical e-mails this week – from three different people with three completely different jobs [not three journalists]. The Meaning of the Number Eleven and The Q33 NY Wingding Hoax email.

The reason why Czechs would still believe it, seven years after 9/11, is that they don’t have a clue. Americans heard and read one million times about the number of passengers on these four flights [the hoax includes the United flight number, too]. And they know that American plane tail numbers start with an N.

So, it is not really a hoax, it is a misleading lie. Kind of a lie that I would expect CIA to come up with. An excellent piece of a PR stunt…
