SMS-mania: Yes hand did not wither sending!

March 1 2005

It is known that the younger generation can easily find common language with the technique and adapt to progress. Moreover, the most interesting innovations created by talented young people and, as a rule, she has also found its first application. The average Internet user, a frequenter of forums and chats, amateur games - it does not kryahtyaschy uncle, strained convalescent tie and meditating in his study of gastric ulcer. Wherever the reigns playing, active and entertaining beginning to look younger audience.

Convinced that the future of technology for young people, scientists around the world, however, sounded the alarm. No one knows how new technologies impact on the maturing consciousness. So far, far away, the scientists advised parents to limit contact their minor children with a computer and as late as possible to buy children of a cell phone. On the dangers of cell phone recently started to talk particularly intense. Most scientists worry the growing wave of SMS-communication .

Everything goes to the fact that the passion for this means of communication recognize native drug. SMS-dependent people will be treated in special clinics, where they are strictly forbidden to have contact with any printing device. So what scares scientists in this harmless and beneficial technologies?

It turns out that young people completely lose the ability to learn. During the lesson or lecture, many prefer not to listen to the speaker and the diligent record in a notebook and organize SMS-colloquia. The next attack is that students just mastered writing. Syndrome of "rampant printing" makes them every time to look around the keyboard and scared as hell of incense clean sheet of paper.

Scientists are not completely understood, what happens to a young psyche. To understand something very sophisticated SMS-slang, which teem with lousy various abbreviations and emoticons, and that is also constantly changing, they can not. Consigned to history has become an essay ordinary Scottish schoolgirl, decorated in an SMS-message: "My smmr hols wr CWOT. B4, we usd 2go2 NY 2C my bro, his GF & thr 3: - kds FTF. ILNY, it's a gr8 plc" . Translation into English from the human "cell" of the language should look like this: "My summer holidays were a complete waste of time. Before, we used to go to New York to see my brother, his girlfriend and their three screaming kids face to face. I love New York, it's a great place ". In Russian it would be: "My summer holidays were a continuous loss of time. Before we went to New York to visit my brother, his girlfriend and their three screaming children. I love New York, is a wonderful place."

Some enterprising computer people do not pay attention to the warnings of psychologists and go on about the youth. For example, Microsoft recently released specifically for SMS-school edition of Homer's Iliad, which opens next stanza: "Wot hapnd when Agamemnon n Achilles had a barny?" In the normal form of the phrase seems to be much longer and in Russian is:

"Rage, Goddess, sing the Achilles son of Peleus,
Grozny, which aheyanam thousands of disasters wrought. "

Incidentally, it turns out that restricting the number of characters in the SMS-messages affects the brain. School children lose the ability to long logical constructions and getting used to communicate the language Ellochka-ogress: "Shine," "Ghastly!"

Here recently, scientists have finally received the long-awaited good example for their fears. Unhappy 13-year-old Italian Girl Got Game on a cell to the point that she had simply "otsohla" hand: doctors she was diagnosed with "inflammation of the tendons of the brush." For the recognition of the "Queen esemesa, she sent every day at least 100 posts. By the way, record the fastest SMS-messages, listed in the Guinness Book belongs resident in Singapore: in 43.24 seconds, she was able to print a sentence of 26 words.

The older generation is still easy to cope with the SMS-dependent. Scientists enough to declare that the cell phone can lead to infertility, hair loss, hearing loss, exposure - all in order, horror stories have made their case. I think the company will soon amount to academics compassionate mother. Just imagine how they would scare their children: "Do not play on a cell - a hand wither! Gather's better Rubik's Cube! "

In general, our hands will help save just one invention - the voice dialing. The technology, which allows to convert speech to text message is on its way. Then, perhaps, the fans of mobile phones will begin to wither languages ...
