So there is this guy in my class, who is really, really "dumb". He asks the worst questions, sometimes which have nothing to do with the discussion. However, he presented an interesting question today; if you couldn't talk, naturally, or due to and injury (for example, you were in a car crash and you somehow slit your throat), could you text the hospital on your cell phone to call an ambulance?
I was wondering about his all day, because you can text some home phones now...
Any thoughts?

uhhh if I were in a car crash serious enough to injure me so that i couldn't even talk, I don't think i would have the will to get out out my cell phone and going through the long process of texting the hospital. and actually I think it would make more sense to text 911, not the hospital

you don't have to have a slit throat..

all you need is your teeth knocked out, your tongue mangled or cut, your ribs broken etc.

yes I do think you should be able to do that

i think you can text someone to dial 911 for you...but that might take too long.

maybe if you just dial the emergency number and make gurgling sounds for them they'll see that youre hurt and track the number down for you.

I don't know about texting, but maybe you could just dial 911? I don't think you'd have to say anything to get them to send an ambulance; unless they thought it was a prank call or something...

I broke my toe as a result.

best to dial 911 and scream the loudest you can

only a cold-hearted idiot would ignore that

Have fun trying to call the emergency services then.

Yea, quite 'wise' problem.. I just wonder how long it'll take to bleed to death with slitted throat. Propably enough to type: "Help, I've crushed into a tree, my throat is beei... Ah, **** it anyway."

I swear I've seen this exact thread before. When I hovered over it I thought "Someone brought this thread back from the dead"

Deja vu?

If you black out. You'll loose 50 % of your money though and wind up at the latest visited pokemon center.

This is why I make sure I am able to say my location in Morse code by clicking my tongue at all times.

No I don't think you could do this. They'd need to have a cell phone and I assume that emergency lines use regular pluggy-inny style phones.
