Did you know you can now text from public phones? For 20 cents?

I didn't. Until this week.

Anonymous texting. Oh, the possibilities... :)

Well if I get any anonymous texts i'll know who they're from.

Have you ever played sms roulette? Swap phones with someone when you're drunk in the pub and you each get to text someone on their address book with whatever you want?

I tried to play it a few months ago but we were both so drunk we couldn't work the other person's phone. Just as well really.

I didn't say I was going to prank *you* - you're all 'easily amused, not easily offended' - where's the fun in pranking someone like that? :P

Have you ever played sms roulette?
I haven't, but from your description, it sounds like Russian roulette played with one's social life...

I've only attempted to play it. :-) The guy I was swapping phones with was a married lawyer and I figured he had more to lose than I did.

I'm thinking it should be more than just two people swapping phones, though. Kinda like a key party or something :)

yeah only with no keys and no other stuff, just SMSs.... so not really like a key party at all.

Yeah, nahh, I meant by analogy - everyone puts their phones in, then everyone takes one out.

*rolls eyes* I got that, I was being difficult. :-)

Ah. I did not get that. More fool I.

yeah I think I need a "i'm being sarcastic and/or difficult and/or this is very much tounge in cheek" icon.

Yeah, the one you've been using doesn't really convey that so well.

BTW, where is it from? I keep thinking I've seen the larger work somewhere, but I can't place it.

Hmmm. I think there's a more or less endless conversation to be had in picking apart the symbolism of that one :)

yeah. :-)

You know, for a war god, Mars doesn't appear to have that much stamina...

You've got to feel sorry for Venus, really. All that effort to cheat on Vulcan, and then this... such a let down...
