How does one get stuck in a drain? I’m not familiar with this phenominon. Is it just as stupid as petitioning Facebook friends for help instead of calling 911?

There was something similar with people chatting on IRC, one of the people suddenly couldn’t breathe and asked for help.

How many of their 1,274 friends clicked that they "liked" the status?
Like, totally OMG, LOL, BFF!

No, it’s more reminiscent of the video of the people trapped on an escalator, because they have lost the vision that modern technology has simple alternatives.

Is it possible they didn’t have enough signal strength for a voice call but the data connection worked? I know that’s often the case for my phone. I can send text messages when I cannot get a voice signal.
