"In October 2011, Jeff Ragsdale, a down-and-out actor and stand-up comedian, posted a flyer around Lower Manhattan asking people to call him if they wanted to talk. He thought he'd get a dozen calls; instead, he got hundreds, and then thousands once pictures of the flyer went viral on the net. The calls came from all over the country and from as far away as Spain, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Taiwan, and Australia. Jeff spoke to as many people as he could, answering his phone all day long.

Interesting social experiment where one guy posts his cell phone number and chronicles the responses. Amazing how many responses he receives, and some of the responses (and his own revelations) can be quite disturbing. ( )

It's shocking to me that this ever got published. It has a great premise: guy puts up a poster offering to talk to anyone about anything. With that said it's simply page after page of snippets from conversations, which may have been interesting except that without context it make almost no sense. There were repeat calls from a few girls who clearly need help; anorexics, those who are suicidal, and of course - sex addicts. Again, if there had been context it might have been an interesting look at tthe lives of the lonely. ( )
