I know what you mean about the cell phone. I got along just fine for 50 years without one, but now feel half naked if I go somewhere without it. I'm not a fanatic about having it on my person 24/7, but if I go someplace I have it in the truck. Occasionally I'll just be going to town (15 miles) and after going a couple miles realize I forgot it and that "feeling" comes over me! Then I just consider that for most of my life I thought nothing of starting off on a 2000 mile trip, or going into really remote places without one (because they weren't invented yet!).
I agree on ugly guns. I've passed up a lot of good deals on guns because some idiot drilled holes in the receiver of a classic gun or scratched his drivers license number on it, etc. None of it would have affected the function, but it would have bugged me everytime I looked at it.
