Too bad he doesn't have one of those compressed air horns on him. Guaranteed big winner on America's Funniest Videos.
I have recently exchanged my SmartPhone against a very simple non web compatible prepaid phone, as I simply needed a break from being online 24/7. I caught myself checking email in the middle of a conversation, repeatedly, and decided that it is getting too much.
A bit strange now, you sit in the waiting area at the dentist and you have all the magazines for yourself... everyone else is tapping away on their iPhones and Galaxies.
See, I like this. As Joerg has I have a £12 phone that doesn't even have a colour screen. I also left Facebook a while back and ok, I spend a lot of time on here when I am home but I am so much happier in general by unplugging. The only strange thing is when I am out with friends I will say "Did you see that animal/car/crazy naked person?" and the answer is a distracted "Erm..what? Erm, no" before looking back down at their device. The internet is an amazing invention but the world is more amazing than most people can be bothered to see.
i still have my nokia 8210 with no internet and have been very happy i like this picture as it shows there are some real people left we have not ALL become cyborgs attached to an electronic device all day. like many of us here i say i prefer the feel of oak and theraband in my hand
I carry 2 phones wherever I go. My personal phone is a 'dumb' phone that's about 6 years old. It sends texts, and gets used for personal calls, that's about it. My work phone is an iPhone 5 which I'm required to carry for my job. I'm also occasionally on call for work, so it becomes a life-line if I'm troubleshooting an issue and need internet access. But l do enjoy looking at the world around me more than I do at the phone, plus with my eyesight starting to go, unless I have my glasses on, it's getting tougher and tougher to read what's on the screen.
Joerg - I thought the pre-paid phone was for keeping in regular contact with Baba. I think we can deduce that since the guy on the platform is not searching his phone for meaning or entertainment, he has already come into contact with Baba and has found fulfillment and meaning in his life. Technology no longer matters.
Once you have established a vashikaran connection between a full blown Baba and yourself, no need for a cell phone anymore. You use color coded gaseous byproducts of your digestive system to communicate. At first those are a bit hard to see in broad daylight, but after four or five gold medals the glow is bright enough even on a sunny June day at high noon.
See the attached pic, here the vashikaran akolythe is asking his Baba for another one of these great love spells that work so well on muscular men wearing shirts three sizes too small...
Wow... we've gone from glow in the dark to glow in broad daylight. Such enlightenment...
My mrs bought me a phone i have no idea how to use it , she does
Color coded gaseous digestive byproduct communication-----
O how I yearn for that day of enlightenment!
Years ago we discovered that Miller Beer and hard boiled eggs makes green death-fog, but that probably doesn't count......
All you need is beans for lunch and a lighter!-
The teutonian Kraut-specialists used the "lighter" version,
communication by acoustic growls and squeak noises
(due to the lack of lighters) ever since!
Plus: guess how we REALLY defeated the roman intruders ..
every child is educated to take care from where the wind is coming!
LOL I don't even HAVE a cell phone, and I feel no need for one. I have a land line at the house, and if I go out, I have no intention of answering the damm phone. I'm "OUT". Especially if I'm out Fishing!
I have a "no cell phone within 100 yards" rule when fishing. Leave that thing in the dang car. Bring it out in front of me it will go into the river.
I see all these people walking around with phones and my primary thought is "Man those phone company's are raking it in, these people are just cash cows for the big company's, when they going to get smart?"
maybe this could be the start of the cure ... change the function ...
I can't count the number of people that have walked into the street right in front of my car, eyes down, on their cell phones, completely unaware that their life just about ended, but didn't because someone else was paying attention - me. "Situational awareness" is a term used in aviation (I learned it in flight classes many years ago), the military and other areas that helps to teach you to be more aware of what's going on around you, not just seeing things, but comprehending them, which involves more brain power than just seeing. Perhaps it's something that needs to be taught in schools. Whether it be smart phones or anything else that distracts your attention, it's important to always be just a bit more aware of what's going on around you.
