Approximately 1,800 years ago, an ancient curse was recorded in red paint in a burial tomb near what is now Haifa, Israel. It was penned by Yaakov (Jacob) “the Proselyte,” an ancient Greek man who converted to Judaism. Yaakov was interred at Beit She’arim, an ancient Jewish town with a necropolis buried beneath its streets – but what does his curse promise to unleash?

And, what would happen if someone disturbed his burial?

If you disturb the burial, you get published.

And of course the first thing they did was disturb the grave.

 

This is why we have ants.

Who cares right, are we not cursed anyway? What makes him think anyone would want to disturb that grave??? Weird.

Hmm... What is the expiration date on a curse i wonder?

When the paint scrapes off?

When the language used in the curse is no longer known by anyone who could read it?

When no more gullible/impressionable folks encounter it?
