    Like srsly... Morse code and teletype is old technology. Voice was invented after text.

    That is all. icon_biggrin.gif

    So very, very, very, very true.

    I hate this this crap:

    To me: What you doing?
    Me: Driving. Just call me, please.
    To me: Where you driving to?
    Me: Driving. I have my headset.

    GURRRRRRRRRRRRR.

    Clueless fucks.

    I'll just text while I'm at a signal, but, try to avoid it, even then.

    I've seen SUVs loaded with kids and Mom is texting: just absolutely crazy.

    Glad this thread took a turn to remind folks to be careful on the roads..

    Hey, every medium and protocol has its uses!

    Just because the French had an early prototype analogue fax machine set up between Paris and Lyons in the mid 1800's doesn't make it any less valid as a channel in the late 20th century.

    There is a time for talking and there is a time for typing. I do both.

    I enjoy short text messages because it's an easy way to make plans or arrangements-- or simply exchange important information-- without obligating me to devote all of my attention to something by holding a phone to my ear and talking about things.

    I agree-- the whole driving/texting thing is dangerous and disgusting. I yelled at one of my best friends when she was driving with me in the passenger seat on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago during rush hour. I could not believe it. I actually ripped the phone out of her hands and told her that I would sooner get out of the car at the next traffic light than sit in the car while she puts my life in jeopardy. Women are bad enough drivers already.

    Anyway, I consider a phone call a great option when I have a lot to discuss with someone. But I actually think that texting IS the new technology. Again, it's a quick way to exchange information, and it's a documented record of any information exchanged.

    Directions to the party? Text me.
    Update on my health benefits? Send an email.

    Breaking up with me? Dying of cancer? Considering suicide? Please give me a call.

    I love reading novels set in the nineteenth century and tales of messengers running about the cities with handwritten letters, waiting for replies and then carrying them back to the original sender. Lavish!

    or something to the effect of

    "Watson, I have sent him word this morning and I expect a reply in the afternoon post."

    I only communicate by wireless telegraph. Telephones and Victrolas are just fads; they'll never catch on, trust me.

    People were texting in the 1700s? Or do you mean 19th Century?

    Aint nobody got time for talking...even though texting takes long BUT YOU CAN-...I don't know...I hate talking on the phone because I'm super nice and a pushover on the phone. I can be blunt and speak my mind via text message.

    Come to think of it, texting was used in the 18th century. But hitting "send" meant attaching it to a carrier pigeon. icon_wink.gif

    I like to use smoke signals.

    In the sense that if you see a large fire with a ploom of smoke blacking out the sky.. I'm near by. icon_cool.gif
