I'm on average with the first couple of comments, 11001 (binary) texts per day.

Did you feel that? With our posts and ljw, the lowered production level in Lawrence created a jolt in the force.

It takes a lot to make me laugh at loud at possibly fake stuff on the internet, but this site cracks me up

Real? Fake? Who cares? It is the comedy that counts.

To read while we're waiting on TOB to dampen and block his too tight helmet over something larger than a softball this time: http://www.someecards.com/2011/04/06/the-best-obnoxious-responses-to-misspellings-on-facebook

I usually don't apologize for misspellings and bad grammar, but jeez. Sorry.

Anyhow, SPC says the same thing (Gotta beware those tv forecasters... it is sweeps month.)

From the SPC… …TORNADIC OUTBREAK POSSIBLE ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS TUESDAY. AN UPGRADE TO HIGH RISK MAY BE WARRANTED AS SITUATION BECOMES MORE CERTAIN ..

Lezak excepts some part of that moderate area to be in a "high" risk bad storms tomorrow. That is extremely rare. It is also somewhat rare to have a "moderate" risk the day before a storm. KU Weatherman would have a better handle on the historical aspects of SPC forecasts.

5-10 per day, mostly when I'm driving.

"Oh, my. Best be getting out your bike helmets for tomorrow." Bob

Is this weather or rapture related?

It will storm only if I plan a fishing trip.

Texts?

Probably none.

But, I send a bunch of emails to smart phones which are pretty much the same thing only better.

zip,zero,nada. Don't own a cell phone. I'm sticking with my trusty land line as long as I can. I never felt the need to be that accessible to anyone. No call-waiting or any of that junk either. Just a phone.

I send maybe 1 or 2 per day but my teenage daughter averages 12k to 13k a month. Thank goodness for unlimited texting plans

Whitney, that is 1-2 more than I did in the last decade.

I still have a VCR blinking 12:00.

I do a lot of sexting so much that my thumbs have calluses

Let's just say I have an unlimited texting plan, and that's a good thing for my wallet.

Zero. I have maybe sent 10 texts in my entire life and those were just for drug deals for Hollis.

I'd text more if the somewhat boyfriend could learn how to text. But he will take random pictures of stuff in lieu of texting. Or he can do some sort of auto reply lines from a menu on his phone if I text him. I guess I need a more tech savvy boy.

Texting has a communication value. I don't quite understand the reluctance to embrace it. Maybe it is the growth of the hermit population.

"Sober... one or two. Drunk... I'll text until I pass out."

Posting on ljwonline is the closest I get to textin. . . . .

Got the message this morning, the one that was sent to me About the madness of becoming what one was never meant to be.

For security, I only use trusted couriers so the exact location of the compound is not compromised. They may be on the list but you got to trust someone.

autie, You make it sound like you are on some kind of list.

autie 2 years, 11 months ago

My actual number is closer to .6, so not often. But that can be sketchy at times.

eleventy-seven, sometimes more depending on twitter.

I'll have people ask me why I didn't answer their text and are shocked when I tell them I don't have it enabled on my phone. At least I can never be accused of texting and driving.

RoeDapple 2 years, 11 months ago

I average three words per text. For a total of five texts in this life. My thumbs are as big around as a ball bat and I can pick up 2 basketballs at the same time with these huge hands. I was not made for texting. On the plus side, you know what they say, . . . "Big hands . . . . Big feet!"

I send messages in bottles. Every now and then I get a reply from this guy who says he's stranded on a desert island. He's a big joker I think....
