mosquito

anybody here about this ringer called mosquito?

apparently someplace in england there was a shopping center that was frequented by some rough youths, and the adults didn't like them hanging around. so they emitted a very high frequency that adults can't here, but youths can. and it's highly annoying.

whatever the story, i have it on my phone. so today in lab i set my ringer to mosquito and i was able to test without my professor knowing.

but my lab partners got really annoyed.

thanks. however, I've found the downside of this marvel. after a whole day of using it as my text
notification (it rang a bazillion times a day cuz I'm a text addict) my ears are ringing constantly (sheepish grin)maybe it's not the best idea after all.

I shouldn't think so. :)

yea, problem is that i have no ringers because i just got another phone (I'm in a big fight with verizon) but my friend just told me about myxer.com which supposedly will text you ringers for free. dunno if that's true

Yoni said...

if they're texting you ringers for free, I'd be worried about it.

or thats how I feel, maybe it isn't worth much.

that's what i say.

anything free is worth what you pay for it

hugs are free, are they worthless?

well free hugs aren't always worth it.

once,a guy in my class was giving out free hugs. believe me, i sure didn't want them!

Yoni said...

windows 2007 costs alot of money and its not worth much. :)

and ick...

I bet it was part of the "free hug day". was it last semester?

frumcollegegirl said...

yea...i think so...it was like the third or fourth week in september

the hillel actualy sponsored the free hug day at the local university. One of them told me She'd give me a hug, save that I'm not allowed to accept it, so I just just accept good wishes anyway.

I never heard of that ringer. That's so interesting.

I remember learning that animals and humans have different pitches that they can hear, but I never knew adults and youths had different ones.

About free stuff, the most free thing is air cause its the most basic to survival. Then comes water and so on...
