In order for a Northern European to evolve fair skin and hair, there has to be something that will kill a human of dark skin and hair. Since people with dark skin can survive in Northern Europe, it is not through evolution.

The "something" doesn't have to kill, just reduce the probability of reproductive success. Vitamin D deficiency fills the bill.

I don't think that's the intended use at all.

I'm guessing they're expecting texts more like "someone broke into my house, and I'm hiding in the closet", or "my husband is abusing me, and thinks I'm just cleaning up in the bathroom, but I need help", etc. Situations where being discreet is important, situations where people currently try to text 911, and often get no response.

If all the world's economists were laid end to end, we wouldn't reach a conclusion. -- William Baumol
