Man Killed Over Sending Text Messages During Movie Previews

Hey, kids! Sexting is a bad idea!

You know, back in my day, us kids were perfectly happy to just cop a few condoms from Dad’s drawer and get on with our business. We’ve heard plenty about kids running up ridiculous texting bills and sexting (sending erotic pictures, video, and even text via SMS and MMS) has made headlines in the last year or so. Now, though, a study by Pew Internet & American Life Project reveals that as many as 15% of teens have received or sent sexually explicit text messages.
