Mobile phone text messaging is supposed to be revolutionising the way we communicate. But The Diary is happy to report that it is in fact nothing more than a techie’s wet dream.
Don’t believe us? Well, here’s the proof. You can now subscribe to Guinness World Records’ text messaging service, which automatically updates you when a new record has been made or is being attempted.
What a relief. We at The Diary often wonder whether the beer-crate balancing record has been broken, or whether anyone is trying to put 153 marshmallows up one nostril.
The Diary pines for the simpler days of Roy Castle’s bugle playing and Norris “Memory Man” McWhirter dishing out the facts to semi-interested kids.
