Magic goings-on in Sharjah

I was thinking only a couple of days ago that recently there's been a dearth of stories about black magic.

I must say I miss them, so I was happy to read this morning that the black art is alive and well.

Sharjah's finest have arrested two men after they received a complaint, which seems to have been that the magic didn't really work.

Briefly, the two alchemists claimed that they could change ordinary paper into dollar bills. To prove their magic powers they poured liquid over paper and, hey presto, dollar notes appeared.

That convinced their victim to hand over Dh250,000 to them. Well, you would wouldn't you.

Somehow he later worked out that the magic was an illusion and off he toddled to the local nick to file his complaint.

I'm so pleased that we're still getting these stories.

The story is here.

I've been distracted by a couple of other stories James, but I intend to post about this one.
I'm trying to get my head around all the complications of it.

Amazing what some people will believe in the 21st century... then again, about 2000 years ago people believed that some long-haired hippy could walk on water and change water into wine ;-) But that's another story!

Hey, what ever happened to our friend with the magical bullet-protection black stone?

If they really invented a way to double money, why would they sell their services?

Just beg for 1 Dh and keep re-doubling it up until you are a millionaire!
