    (2X + 10) times the normal crowd who read most of the threads I post have found this thread to be a dud. I officially declare this thread dead, unless someone cares to prove me wrong.

    That's because we're offended by what you're implying - that old people don't know much about today's world. It isn't only old people that don't know things.

    I remember when my sister-in-law had their second kid. At the time, her two little brothers thought it amusing to make random replies of "SOMF" when people talked to them - or sometimes just let out a random "SOMF" even when no one had said anything. It was almost like they had Tourette's. For some reason, my sister-in-law and her husband found the random "SOMF's" amusing - it just sounded funny. So the nickname of their second saughter was Somfy. Sounded cute as long as they didn't use it around someone who knew what SOMF actually stood for.

    Of course, I guess my sister-in-law isn't really young anymore, so maybe all that means is that the current crop of old people didn't know anything even when we were young.

    I texted for the first time in my life just a few days ago. My dentist sent me a text message reminding me of my next appointment and told me to text back yes to confirm it. So the funniest texting conversation I personally know of is:

    Dentist: Reply 'Yes' to this message to confirm your Tuesday dental appointment.
    Me: Yes

    If a funnier one comes up I'll let you know.

    If the thread's not dead, then people will stop posting. There's just something perversely satisfying about replying to dead threads.

    Too late Don, time to delete has expired.

    The reason I posted this in the first place was I got a new phone, that has, ughh... a keyboard and I re-enabled texting with my wireless phone provider. I had a friend once that would send wise ... messages all the time at any time of the day or night, so I had it turned off. He is no longer in the picture, so I reluctantly turned it on. It is great if you want to send someone a message with privacy, but really, if you want to leave an extended message, it is much easier to use voice instead.

    P.S. Bob G, I like your sense of humor...
