The first ever text message sent is up for auction by a Que. man


This holiday season, many of us will be texting our Christmas greetings to loved ones, a tradition that goes back to the very first text message.

Simply stating, “Merry Christmas,” the first SMS message was sent almost 30 years ago.

Now, that moment of digital history is up for auction Tuesday to raise money for charity.

  1. You cannot auction off a moment in history.
    The NFT thing is literally the _STUPIDEST_ thing. An NFT isn’t _anything_ because you _cannot_ own a moment in history.
    Buying a piece of paper that says that you own a thing is the *most GULLIBLE* thing a human can do
