TOOTHING -- As a seasoned rail traveler, I can positively assert that "toothing" aboard Irish Rail is less likely than smoking on trains. So even though I keep a Sony Ericsson S700i in its Bluetooth active mode, I have never been toothed in a year of traveling into Kilkenny among hordes of hens and stags. The Irish are not as active as the toothers found by The Register. And in case you've missed this craze--perhaps because you're caught up in tabloid coverage of Becks Text--"toothing is a form of anonymous sex with strangers--usually on some form of transport or enclosed area such as a conference or training seminar. Toothers meet by first connecting suitable equipment, perhaps through a Bluetooth phone. Users discover other computers or phones in the vicinity and then send a speculative message. The usual greeting is: Toothing? If the other party is interested, messages are exchanged until a suitable location is agreed - usually a public toilet, although there are tales of more adventurous spots such as deserted carriages or staff areas.
The most active discussion thread is "International Toothing" and Trieste might be the hottest spot. But I think there's a lot of quadruple aliases on the discussion board and that people are toothing themselves. Technology can help geeks get social in many ways.
