    I know married couples who do this every day in their own home. crazy.

    It really is a different world. Our culture has become sort of schizotypal. People seem detached from their environments and so into techno dialoguing. Can you imagine if some natural disaster made communication with cell phones and computers impossible for a few days. What kind of social chaos would ensue. Conversations would be face to face. I wonder if everyone wold discover that they had become social phobics.

    It's probable that they are speaking one with other and do not know it.

    The mouth will become another cheek (no longer used), fingers will fuse together (only need thumbs to text), one eye in the middle of the forehead (better to see the screen), and the legs will drop off (only takes an ass to "Fritter" and "Wastebook"). Nicely done, Jen.
