Random Pay Phone Tip of the Day

This is pulled straight from a News.com Article:

"If you're really bored--and don't have to worry about long-distance phone bills--you can make calls to pay phones listed on this site and perhaps strike up a random conversation with whomever answers.

Aptly named Phoneswarm, the site is updated with a new number and location each week. We're still not exactly sure why it exists, but here's the FAQ for your edification."

Calling Alcatraz could be fun!

Now, what cracks me up is some of the comments at the bottom. "Called at 10:00PM PST, no answer. I think the island shuts down when it gets dark, or at least the ferry stops."

Um...that's why the phoneswarm guy gives the hours at the top of the page.

OK, so is this "phones warm" or "phone swarm?" Hilarious. This totally sounds like something I'd do!

In addition, did Pete actually post this tip from Mississippi? Or did someone else? Cuz I sure didn't!

Maybe they have been really busy and got computers up and running already! Wouldn't that be something?

Jay, I did it (posted the comment, not call Alcatraz).

OK Good. Teehee! BTW, Steph, b/c my emails to you don't work, thanks for the call the other night. I didn't get your message until after midnight that night! (My emails HAD been working, but don't anymore.) :-(

I didn't post it. I was kind of disappointed when the tent village we were staying in didn't have wireless. But then I remembered that I was living in a TENT and the only toilets there had blue water and you don't actually flush them.
