    For once Earl said something that makes sense.

    Exactly!! As a remedial teacher, I know this. They can bail on a class without having to man up and face you, even orally over the phone. It’s a lot easier to lie or at least stretch the truth by textmessage.
    I know of one case of an engagement that was broken by txt. In txtspk.
    Now that’s tacky.
    I told the victim that he was definitely better off without a person who would even consider doing this.

    SORRY, BUT TO ME IT IS A PRODUCT OF A MOST INCONSIDERATE AND IDIOT GENERATION.
    CASE IN POINT: THEY GO TO ALL THE TIME AND TROUBLE TO DIAL YOUR NUMBER AND THEN TEXT. AS LONG AS THEY ARE ON LINE, THEY MIGHT AS WELL TALK. AND IF THEY ARE NOT GOING TO TALK, WHY WASTE THE TIME CALLING?
    STUPID, JUST PLAIN STUPID!

    In 1995, Cliff Stoll wrote “Silicon Snake Oil,” about how throwing technology (and money) at educational problems was the new educational trend. Seems he had a valid point, considering the rise of anti-social behavior crimes that plague schools and society in general. A world with vast amounts of information at our fingertips, “friends” available world-wide 24/7, phone service available almost anywhere we go… yet we have lost the ability to carry on a simple conversation (or resolve a disagreement) face-to-face.

    Yes, I’ve over-analyzed another comic when people just want to read it and have a chuckle. My apologies. Hmm… what was Earl’s funny comment today?

    look in the strip about Sylvia and it is likely the cat has been doing all the texting

    I wish obama would just use text messages that way we don’t have to see or hear the fool. They could just set up his tele-prompter in front of the camera and let it run.

    FishStix… Your right, One call = 50 texts.
    USAFMSGT… You should text that post to all your Republican friends.

    Texting was developed by Nokia, apparently because “Finnish teenagers are shy” (and I quote) and they thought texting instead of talking directly would help kids relate to each other.
    How is increasing their isolation from other people IRL going to help?

    Texting is convenient for quick messages that don’t need to be a conversation such as “On my way”

    I like texts because I don’t have to answer them right away

    If I’m busy a text can sit for a minute or two, unlike a call

    I agree, Doctor Toon. I send a text if it’s a quick message like “we need milk too” while my husband is at the grocery store. Also it’s better for areas that get bad reception. A friend was in the mountains on vacation and could not make a call, but she could text. Very useful in that case.
