Small is beautiful

A friend of mine said that mobile phones are the only thing about which men argue over whose is the smallest.
I know another topic for ‘inverse size envy’: email addresses. Until recently I was quentin @ att.com, which I thought was pretty good, but a friend who works for Electronic Arts told me at the weekend that he had two initials before the @ea.com. 9 characters in total. My shortest valid address at present is my 3 initials followed by @pobox.com. 13 characters. I feel suitably humbled.
