One afternoon the doorbell rang in the London flat of Peter Sellers‘ . As Sellers was busy in his study, his wife Anne went to the door, where she was handed a telegram. The message said: “Bring me a cup of coffee. Peter”.

Thus: based on the later experiences of spouses all over the world we can claim that peter Sellers was the first person ever to use a text message, to request a service from someone in the next room, that they could no doubt have done themselves with marginally less effort than it took to send the message.


About Transremaxculver

An entirely fictitious username I created for posting on 'alt.religion.scientology', Scientology is something of which I am highly critical. For those of you who don't know, the Church of Scientology have a habit of making life very uncomfortable for even the most legitimate of critics, which is why this username is completely anonymous. Anyway I have become quite fond of this username, and although it has to some extent outgrown it's original purpose, I think a blog is perhaps the right place for me/it to continue to grow and develop.
