That's cold, man

Technology has made our lives better in so many ways, but I can't say that this is one of them:
A Saudi man has become the first in his country to divorce his wife by sending her a text message.

A court in the city of Jeddah finalized the divorce, which under Saudi Arabia's Islamic Shariah law only requires a man who wants a divorce to tell his spouse "I divorce you" three times, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.
And in addition to being an insensitive prick, the guy texted his wife from Iraq, where a newspaper said he was for "what he described as 'jihad.'" Sounds like an all around great guy, huh?
