Cell Phones: Advanced Stuff

posted by xscot mcknight

From a fellow blogger (HT: Hal). This, I guess, is why my students can actually communicate with students in other classes without having to say a word or write something that is knowable to professors who don’t know cell phone lingo.
First, I ask this: What does “SMS” mean? I hoped it might show up under “SMS” but, evidently, I was supposed to know. Now I feel like a “dodo”.

Scot,
Did you also know that a ringtone exists that is supposed to be imperceivable to anyone over the age of about 30? Something like that. It’s a tone that becomes inaudible as we age. What next?

Oh my goodness! I am hopelessly behind. :) No wonder I can’t understand what my 19 year old is writing.

I’ve heard of the ring tone and I’m 34 :-)… It sounds similar to the sound that used to come out of the back of old CRT TV’s when they turned on… but without stopping. It’s really annoying.
What’s even funnier is that the ring tone actually started out as a “Teenager repellant”.

I am 44 and have a hearing loss since birth. I hear well enough to use a cell phone but do not always hear it ring. My daughter left a message the other day to the effect, sorry you missed my call, guess no one was close enough to you to tell you your butt was ringing. Off topic, but kind of funny.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
