    If this is real, I am speechless.

    Really? Why is that?

    If we start redefining marriage what's off limits? And why?

    My husband and I went out to the local tavern a few weeks ago and almost every person at the bar was texting someone. They were having very little interaction with the live people they were with. Kinda scary.

    I see sorta the same thing when I'm driving to school in the mornings... people on the highway on their cell phones at 7 AM... who TF are they talking to?

    And I say this as a habitual texting maniac.

    Ha ha. Crackberry addict myself. :eusa_shhh:

    In NJ, cell phone use while driving is illegal. I wish they would change that. Instead people are texting (which is also illegal, but easily concealed from cops), and is far, far more dangerous in my opinion.

    I am a cell phone Nazi at school. I can catch kids texting with my back turned. It's not that I don't understand that all kids do it (inc. my own) but I honestly believe that permitting it in class is feeding the addiction. It's becoming a pubic safety issue in addition to hurting social skills.

    Hey - if they allow people to marry video games, what kind of benefits will the virtual spouses be entitled to? Lifetime warranties? Replacement parts and checkups? :lol:
