Briton and texting
« on: November 06, 2007, 03:52:24 pm »
Some 4.825bn texts were sent in September 2007, equivalent to 4,000 every second.

Oh lawd, that's a lot of people with RSI :<

This is why I try not to use phones.
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

i think you misunderstood. i meant that you cant just make the guess that everyone is gonna get RSI because not everyone uses their phones so consistently.

Comon, I only text 5-10 times a day and I don't text anyone else :(

No but I use public transport for 2-4 hours a day 5 days a week, I see how much some people text and how often (surprised some of them don't have arthritis) ;p

Isn't that a tad expensive?

I'm not really worried about the money to be fair.

'Spose you do have a job now, but texts to America are like 50p a pop. Just go on MSN in work? :P

I sit right next to the I.T. guy at work and he hates me because I got MSN to work on the computers so he's completely removed them and removed my permission to download anything except data on websites... or something, I wasn't listening.

Why use MSN when we can use the forums for PMs? :D

It's never good to get on the wrong side of the I.T. guys. If he hates you then yeah I think you'd be better off texting :P
Just remember, if you piss him off, he's been there longer than you and he could probably blame a few things on you. I've had it all before. :P

Is there a budding forum romance going on here?  ;D
