Phuket 'volcano' hoax causes panic among Russians

1382092322_1.jpg

PHUKET: -- A picture of Wednesday night’s SuperCheap fire posted on Facebook prompted Russians on the island and in Russia to fear a volcano had erupted.

The image, which shows smoke billowing from behind a hill in Phuket Town, carried the warning that everybody should get their money, documents and travel to Phuket Town Bus Terminal to catch a waiting bus that would take passengers to safety.

It caused some Phuket-resident Russians to fear the worst and post desperate and panic-stricken questions, alarming relatives back in Russia.

Eventually though, the hoax was revealed by fellow Facebook netizens, and the post author was threatened with “prygden” being put in his pants.

The Phuket News is still uncertain what that is.

I think it is the Russian term for a pigeon.

And the last thing anyone would want in their pants is a red hot evil pigeon from hell.

Does believing what you see with your own eyes count as stupid Rob, especially if what you are seeing is something known to exist?

I don't think so.

Later you can do a face palm, but at the time it's happening..........

Sure you got a point there, im not saying I would not fall for it. My point was more that people were slagging of the Russians while acting all smart themselves while in the good old US of A they fell for a similar joke.

That was more the point not actually about being stupid. Though one would think that if a volcano became active some seismic activity was noted and it would be on the news.

Was there a "Red Dawn" too? Dumber than a bag of hair (but no monopoly on that attribute, for sure). I lived near Mt St Helens when it blew back in '80. "Oh that's nice" and went on installing speakers in gf's car. Volcanoes are common on ring of fire, that is why it's called that. Name one other volcano in Thailand, please.
