Fun with maths

I got sent this in one of those forwarding things this morning:

This arrived at 11:27. It's now 12:22, which is 55 minutes later. That's 11 x 5. It took me 5 minutes to read it. SPOOOOOKKKYYYY!!!

(i haven't had anything shocking happen to me yet. unless you count someone sending me a link to an article about licking toads).

My conclusion? Somebody needs to get out more. Also, go back to the bit where it tells you to use the wingdings. Look at the numbering on the side. And tell me whether you trust this person to get their maths right. Then go and have a look at the Wikipedia page on 9/11 - with specific reference to the flight numbers, and tell me if you believe anything else this person is telling you.

Does it make me a bad person that I replied with a link to Snopes?
