Default I knew it..I knew it !

.
After observing the addictions gripping people, it has been found that time on Smart phones, should be limited, for adults as well as for children.

Has anyone else noticed the addiction signs?

My redneck son got so tired of the Ipod thing that he built a pen on the end of one of his outbuilding and bought 100 chickens. A certain 9 year old and a certain 11 year old are the sole managers of the operation. Not only do they not have time for their Ipods but they are the only boys for miles that know a good laying hen when they see one....and have chicken chit in the tread of their tennis shoes. Ipods need to go away!

yeah...the iPhone is the constant divider. a crutch for the low in IQ. whole families sit at dinner, in public, and not one of them talk to the other as they are ALL texting someone else far away. death by phone happens as distracted drivers plow into hapless innocents, texters walk over cliffs, into traffic, and ignore practically every social grace in their love of that gadget. The world has gone backward, to the technology of WW2, in text. computing is delivered through the phone. gaming. every conceivable application developed by man and some probably developed by animals. when the electricity runs out, there are instant hissy fits, conniptions, and fire shoots out of eye sockets. cut off, snowflakes become insecure. perhaps they need a 12-step program.

I-phones already surpass drunk drivers in deaths and injuries to road construction workers. I glad I'm nearing retirement or I'd have to demand every orange barrel be filled with concrete. People are addicted to phones and can't put them down anywhere including my office, which is the double yellow line any road USA. You will never see meaningful legislation against cell phone use either because the people who make the laws won't be without theirs.

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.

Thing is. Most idiots think they are filled with concrete...
