I don't have any old cell phones, because I don't use cell phones, and I don't want to use cell phones.
I am appalled at how cell phones have made people into zombies.
They walk the streets very slowly with eyes focused on their tiny screens, stopping in street corners, in narrow entryways, in pathways in the supermarket and sometimes suddenly in front of me. They are a nuisance.
I once saved one of these zombie-women from being run-over by a train when she while texting walked out into a railroad crossing just ahead of the falling booms ignoring the klaxons and the flashing light.
She could have died if I had not stepped in, but she just ignored that she had been in real mortal danger and continued texting.
Then there is the radiation. Science has still not concluded enough for me that cell phone radiation in the normal doses you get from a cell phone would not do me harm. On the contrary, there are more and more paper being published on the subject proving yet and yet again that cell phone radiation is harmful to brain cells of lab animals, although with much smaller heads than we have. Nerve cells get stressed and die. There are even a hypothesis that the radiation itself could cause addiction to it, although there is quite a bit of tissue in the human brain that would absorb that radiation before it would reach the centre of the brain where it would have an effect .. or is there?
No, I choose not to become a zombie. Thank you.
