Rectoscalar waves - Yet another Hoax?!

This morning me and some of my friends received emails forwarded from known people. Here is the one.
Tonight a rectoscalar wave is passing at 10.25 pm, Indian Standard Time.... This causes damage in mobiles and computers..... So switch off your mobiles and computers at the specified time... This has been published in todays The Hindu paper also.... Keep fwd this message to your friends and loved ones.....

Is this true or yet another hoax? Have to wait and see at 10:25 pm IST ;-)

  • However long you wait, you will not be able to see one... Such hoax messages \ sms keep coming. The sad thing in this is that many of the so called "well educated" people keep forwarding these kind of chain mails withput verifying its authenticity.

    Dont catch me if you cant :-)

  • We educated people have to take some measures to stop this kinda hoaxes. As an initiative, lets double check that the messages are true enough and then forward \ post them.
