"Hey Carm,I saw him playing drums earlier in the week...
endschuldige die späte Antwort, ich war krank und heute ist der erste Tag an dem ich mich besser fühle... "
Sorry for the late answer, I was sick and today is the first day that I feel better..."
Pink Floyd's Empty Spaces covers this theme quite well. The more technology we buy, and consume, the further it drives up apart. People are more likely to lie via e-mail than text, because it is even less individualized, in that it is not connected to the present time. I wonder if there is a statistical difference between lying via text message, and speaking over the phone?
