In twenty years, you might recognize the kegger parties your children are getting blackout drunk at, but the class offerings will have changed some. Technology will hava huge impact on the courses offered, and no technology impacts the world today more than text messaging.

Not only does text messaging help to push the limits of tiny keyboard technology, it molds the language of its users. To accomidate the lingistic impact of texting universities and colleges will offer special texting classes.

The first of such classes to be offered will be "Texting 101: texting as a foreign language." This will direct towards the generation who did nto have the opportunity to grow up with texting and are a bit behind on proper etiquette and spelling. Students would be informed about abbreviations such as IDK and when and where to leave out vowels. A second class, "Texting 201," will continue where 101 leaves off.

Once students either pass Texting as a Foreign Language 101 or a texting proficiency test, they will be allowed to take "Literature 275: an exam great works of art from the view of a texter."

Additional classes could include; "History 365: Origins of texting," "Kinesiology 115: strengthing te wrist and thumb to avoid texting carpotunne" and "Political Science 230: The use of text messaging in congressional campaigns."
