cool.. (i won't discuss what i said to the all-knowing all-seeing mind as it might expose my extreme criminal element)

oh, and Soze... if you truly feel that way then you could either politely state that amberglow's post doesn't fit mefi's criteria, bring it somewhere else or if all else fails, STFU

My first reaction to this thread was also that I would never participate in something that in any way uses this techno version of baby talk.

Reminds me of the ubiquitous graffiti at the Univ. of Rochester (back in the day, anyway):

"UR Here."

Underground Resistance went to the Univ. of Rochester? Who knew.

Interesting concept, amber...rather a technological twist on the message in the bottle.
As for floating things in rivers,this can be ritualistic and ceremonial...the Japanese and some other cultures have a tradition of floating paper lanterns in rivers...I think the purpose is generally in tribute to ancestors or the dead.

We will have to see how this plays out....could be interesting.
