Isn't there something newer than Twitter on the horizon? I don't know what this next thing is called, but AFAIK it's shorter than Twitter, so in a sort of Newspeak trimming of language, human conversation is becoming even more limited to fart jokes and bumper sticker leftist indoctrination.

It's also great for mindless cheer leading, so it's a good medium for tracking the anti-gun forces.

Convenient way to post Bible verses, I've noticed.

Oh, I don't know. Let's see: "Is Schrodinger's Cat Alive or Dead? And what does it mean to Existentialism?"

Like having a philosophical discussion using beeper codes!

sepulvedasrevenge, if you fart into the intake of said leaf blower (assuming it's a light electric type, not those backpack gas-powered abominations), and you're aiming the, er, exhaust at someone, you can stink 'em from well across the yard.

Or, so I'm told. By a friend.

It would be a cruel father that would do something like that to his teenage son.

You always hear that the brevity of modern communications is dumbing down the population.

I wonder if it's in fact the other way around - that communication is in fact catching up with the capacity and comprehension of the average person.
