Breaking News Just In
A brand new epidemic of Manus has been discovered to be spreading around the globe via electronic devices such as cellular phones and other portable communication accessories.
The virus takes the form of an e-mail or text (SMS) message, and contains two deadly words: “Text” and “Manus” The message may also contain other words as well, trying to disguise its true form, but it still has the same effect no matter how many letters are displayed.
In order to get rid of the Text Manus, (Codenamed TM) you must forward the message in question onto another contact, then delete the original TM as soon as possible. The same rules apply as normal Manus, you are protected once you have passed the TM on, but if it falls into your hands, it has disastrous effects. The only difference between TM and palm-slapping Manus is that there is no way of blocking an incoming transmission

User: Hmm, I have a message from an unknown number, let me see what it says
A short while later...
AHHHHHHHH I GOT TEXT MANUS! I GOTTA PASS IT ON ASAP!
In a FPS videogame (like Call of Duty), someone who kills people on his own team.
I do it in Call of Duty often (how do you think i chose this name?), it really rocks to see people get so pissed off.
Some tips on teamkilling in Call of Duty:
-Always use SMG's or AR's, Rifles are rarley useful in TK'ing, since you are almost always in close proximity.
-In Team Deathmatch mode, when you spawn, back up a few steps and wait. Your TM's should spawn very soon, and you can kill them as they appear. This pisses them off beyond belief.
-FORGE ALLIANCES!!!! If there's another teamkiller on, make sure you ally yourself with him and say on the same team, killing all other TM's and sparing each other.
-Never, ever teamkill with admins on, it's a very nice way to get perma-banned. Make sure you do it when only peons are in the server
-There's also another little strategy I use. (Team wounding) Use an SMG, and shoot your TM's in the legs, enough to ALMOST kill them, but not quite. This way, there's no proof, and they might kill you and then get banned!
