Well, on the other hand, we do live in a funny world...

Well, on the other hand, we do live in a funny world... Can't find the link for now, but I recall this story of a couple teenage girls, in '09 or so, getting lost in the Australian wilderness (no water, of course) with a cell phone - within range of a relay antenna - think they immediately dialed their 911 after realizing?

Nope. First thought was to update their Facebook status. "Omg! Omg! *cries* Etc."

Yup, they called for help via Facebook.

By miracle, they got rescued. Their battery didn't die too early.

Some people are pretty darn lucky, if one asks me.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
