sms rape and evolution..

wait. do not yet give up. this post has no illicit content whatsoever. or maybe it has. illicit is relative. everything is. anyhow, if you are reading this, focus, if at all you can, we are discussing a grave issue here.

do any of these sound familiar:
"to vote for your favourite breed of dog send an SMS 'my-fav-mutt-is-' followed by the breed of your dog to 7575 or let the dog bark after you dial in the number 1904 4242 2500 05."

"if you think bipasha basu should accept john abraham's 'package' deal of playing with his you-know-what while eating a roshogulla simultaneously, send an SMS 'mouthful' to 8888."

"whether india should give a chance of introducing more youngsters as 12th men in the remaining matches of the ODI series, send SMS 'young-dozenth' to 672455."

"those dimwits who dream of participating in who-wants-to-be-a-millionaire indian version, send SMS 'dreamer' to 646 if you are a retail subscriber, or send 'greedy' to 123 if you are a hcuth subscriber."

"model carol gracias was involved in a wardrobe malfunction fiasco at the lakme fashion week. to let us know whether someone else should also have been involved, SMS the name of the model to 457835."

"to let us know your opinion on whether any cricketing captain should be sued for using the azharuddin patented sentence 'the-boys-played-well', do send an SMS 'royalty' to 4444."

the reason i spiced up the above examples is that a person like me doesn't give a damn to any of the above as much as the non-spiced up counterparts of the above examples. but i'm still put through all the above through one medium or the other. most of which cannot be turned off, for the basic reason that you never know which new medium they will hit you by, and when. Television, Radio, Service Providers of variety of services, newspapers, the list goes on..

the future as i see it:
cell phone evolution will result into one cell phone having multiple typing pads. and to cope with them, human evolution would lead into humans having fingerlets spawning from fingers on the hand. legs would soon be vestigial organs. more the number of SMS-es you send, more fingerlets you will have. i guess hrithik roshan would be considered the Adam of such a gene pool. procreation via SMS-es would be the next in-thing.

solution: strike the problem at its root. chop off your fingers instantaneously. i just did.

cool down budd..
Wait for a couple of more years .. You would be walking with pockets full of mobiles and like (I dunno what the fuss is: all about little gadgets ... its just that we have too many little gadgets - they try to club all in one .. but every function has its own favourite. Eg: photos come out better on a camera compared to a mobile- videos are better on a cam coder compared to a mobile- typing is better on a keyboard compared to a mobile keypad-)
You get my point- now weight loss would be considerd (in the future mind you) as loosing body mass + pocket mass.
Read things like - "Yahuunna Gymnasium adverticement : Guranteed weight loss in 6 months and metabolic and physical weight loss programs available too :) )

U get my point. Dont think too much... the grey(mind) is a grey-scape, u let it free it would sprout shrubs everywhere- u nuture them they transform into a throny tree!

Samjha na.. tension nahi leneka... ungali dabba ke typing karneka- kisine pareshaan kiya to unke site pe janeka aur dabbake gaali deneka... Simple :)
