in blankstare news: To Text or Not to Text?

A British man decided to get "tweet" revenge on an internet seller who ripped him off – by sending the crook the complete works of Shakespeare via text message.

Edd Joseph sent the unidentified con man $150 for a used Playstation but never got the console, but rather than call the cops, he decided to dial up his own way to get even – 140 characters at a time. Joseph found a way to copy Shakespeare's works in large chunks, but have it delivered one text at a time – all for free, since his plan allows unlimited texting.

So far Edd has sent 22 plays including HamletMacbeth and Othello, which have been delivered in 17,424 texts. He reckons the remaining 15 works will take another few days to send – meaning the sleazeball's phone will have been constantly beeping for nearly a week, non-stop. (Bristol Post)
