Blinding Angels

From an article on the nose in the health section of the Washington Post a while back: (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A59335-2002Nov2.html):

"...early Muslims believed that flatulence caused angels to go blind. In fact, the author explains, if a person passed wind outside a mosque, the act was so connected with evil that people marked spots where it occurred with small piles of stones."

This should enter the common lexicon. "Dude! Stop blinding angels! I can't breathe over here!"
