Re: Twitter?

Re: Friends don't let friends text and drive

Ever had someone call your cellphone that's in the same house as you? I refuse to answer. Are folks so lazy that they can't leave the room to actually speak to one another? As for texts, I can receive them but have never sent one and don't have any immediate plans to do so. not in the same house, h...

Re: Choose, please, from two extreme possibilities.

I'm sure that in some instances, the bearer does not follow the definition by MW online, as below. When my son used this symbol on note books, etc. he was still quite a teenager... in my own experiences, it appeared more from skateboarder dudes than the general population of teenagers. my son was a ...

Re: Friends don't let friends text and drive

So how about cell phones on planes? Texting, fine. Wi-fi, fine. I honestly think there will be violence if they let people start talking on mobile phones on airplanes.... :o Too close of quarters for multiple conversations......too many people are loud talkers. if two people are talking in person o...

Re: Mom wants dead son's sperm for future children

In some extreme instances, as chemo/radiation, sperm is stored as there is a possibility after treatment it would no longer be viable.
