There has been a lot of hype concerning the rumor of Mubarak's death . Bloggers wrote about it , the government issued a denial after denial , even pressing charges against the editor in chief of a newspaper for publishing it and there was even a facebook group discussing it (You know it's big when they have a facebook group for it). A whole lot of bullshit if you ask me.
You want to know when you will know that Mubarak is dead? When one of the following 3 things happen:
1) You hear gunshots on the streets.
2) The area surrounding Heliopolis will go under military clampdown with martial law declared and a curfew until the power struggle that will ensue ends.*
3) You will find Gamal Mubarak on the street on his ass, with all of his entourage gone, unable to hail a taxi cab for himself .**
When any of those 3 things happen, let me know. Otherwise, just wait till the man dies like we are all doing. Don't run around spreading false hope. That's just cruel, man!
*This is why I moved to Zamalek. This way, if the shit hits the fan and the country descends into Chaos, us zamalekites will blow up the bridges and have all of you fuckers fend for yourselves. Muhahaha..
**That is, of course, in case Mubarak dies before entrenching Gamal in Power, which would be proof that God doesn't enjoy watching us being miserable. But then again, there is reality…
