Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Have you heard of an internet rumour of spreading "infected needle attacks"?

For your information, a couple of weeks ago, in a Dallas movie theater, a person sat on something sharp in one of the seats. When she stood up to see what it was, a needle was found poking through the seat with an attached note saying, "you have been infected with HIV". The Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta reports similar events have taken place in several other cities recently. All of the needles tested HAVE been positive for HIV. The CDC also reports that needles have been found in the coin return areas of pay phones and soda machines.
Other versions talk of ATM machines, market places... It's quite an old rumor, but it still causes waves of scare in Asia or Eastern Europe...
