The street finds its own uses for things

The latest weird juxtaposition between technology and society: toothing, the practice of using BlueTooth-enabled cell phones for anonymous sex.

Pretty straightforward, really; you set up your BlueTooth device for automatic discovery, create a new BlueTooth entry, and put your text number in it. Other people in crowded places--trade shows, trains, and so on--search for BlueTooth-enabled devices within range, they find you, you chat, you nip off to the bathroom for some quick, anonymous sex.

Bet Ericsson, IBM, Intel, and the rest of the Bluetooth consortium never saw that one coming...

Oh, yeah. This is the sort of thing that always accompanies those weird places where changes in technology and changes in society intersect, but dammit, I still want to live forever anyway.

Or perhaps I want to live forever because of things like this--it's these little weird things that make life worth living, after all! (Well, that and bacon.)

Are you sure your reply was placed under the right post. Cause that reply makes no sense at all.

Or, perhaps, you think my husband is an asshole, and you somehow believe this entire post came out of his experience. Your response indicates you are a whole ass.

Go back and read it all again. Click on the links. Then, show me where it says he has experienced this personally.

If you just want to call someone names at least have the balls to sign your name.

Yea, I stole it from a friend of mine. I love it. I am going to change my journal so I can use it for my weight training posts. If I can figure out how to do that.
