Who Killed Electric Car?

EV Nissan

The big oil companies and their political allies may hate the very idea of the electric car, but writer-director Chris Paine remains an unabashed fan of the technology. His informative and entertaining documentary, which makes an explicit link between carbon dioxide emissions and global warming, traces the evolution and eventual marketplace failure of the innovative vehicle.

Laying the blame at the feet of General Motors (which eventually reclaimed the first models leased to consumers and crushed and buried them in the Nevada desert), apathetic politicians, and an unrepentant oil industry, Paine also gives voice to the car’s staunch defenders, Mel Gibson among them. He may have a clearly defined axe to grind but, in this war-ravaged and environmentally distressed day and age, Paine’s passion is worth attending to.

Filmmaker Chris Payne explores the many factors that played into the ultimate failure of the electric car to catch on with consumers, even as gas prices began to skyrocket, in a thoughtful meditation on the increasingly important role that renewable energy plays in modern society. Introduced as a means of providing an alternative to increasing oil consumption and reducing pollution in 1996, the electric car was all but a forgotten memory only a decade later – but why?

The mobile phone number 0888 888 888 killed all its owners


The number 8 is usually considered auspicious, and is particularly prized by the Chinese who see it as a symbol of wealth.

But it seems that what should have been a lucky mobile phone number had instead placed some sort of curse on its owners.

The mobile phone number 0888 888 888, issued by the Bulgarian telco Mobitel is now being suspended after it killed all three men who had owned it within a short 10 year span.

First victim

The phone number's first victim was Mobitel's CEO himself. Vladimir Grashnov died of cancer in 2001 at just 48 years old.

Although Grashnov had a spotless business record, there were persistent rumours that the CEO's cancer was caused by a business rival using radioactive poisoning.

Second victim

After his death, this phone number was used by a Bulgarian mafia boss, Konstantin Dimitrov. He too died two years later, gunned down by a lone assassin while in the Netherlands to inspect his drug smuggling empire.

The phone that held the cursed number was with him when he was dining out with a model. Dimitrov was just 31 when he died.

Russian mafia bosses were said to be behind the killing.

Third victim

The jinxed number was then given to crooked businessman Konstantin Dishliev.

He was gunned down two years after Dimitrov died, in 2005 outside an Indian restaurant in Bulgaria's capital Sofia.

The estate agent had been running a massive cocaine smuggling operation.

Dishliev had apparently died after a huge amount of the drug was intercepted by police on the way into the country from Colombia.

Jinxed number now suspended.

The number was only ever assigned to these three people and all three owners had been killed within two years of each other.

Now the jinxed phone number is understood to be either suspended or dormant.

Callers who try dial it up will only get a message recorded in English and Bulgarian that says the phone is either turned off or is "outside of network coverage".

The phone number can be reached internationally at +359 888 888 888.

You can try dialing it, if you dare.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.

I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
