Cell Phones SuckSubmitted by zooamerica on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 21:44
Not only do they track your every move, listen in on you, and heat up your brain...cell phones are also destroying human communication. Notice how so many people can hardly talk anymore?
They mumble with a quiet, weak voice because they barely use it!
How ironic is that? A supposed communication device is in actuality an anti-social tool that is destroying our language, and our speech.
Do people still talk? Barely. They're too busy texting. ALL of my friends now text more than they talk on their cell phones.
I work in the restaurant business...picture this:
Lunchtime, 12:00pm on a Friday, and the place is packed. But you wouldn't know it if you were in the kitchen area because nobody could hear anyone talking out front. I looked out into a sea of zombified people staring into their phones as if they were looking at the true meaning of life. Nobody was talking to one another. The place was full, but dead quiet as the bright lights of peoples phones rendered all of them mute.
Ever go out to a bar and all you see are people constantly on their cell phones? What the hell's the point of going out to a bar if you're not going to actually talk to people? They used to call a bar a, "speakeasy," because once people got a few in them, they tended to conversate away with total strangers.
Who'd of thought that a cell phone would be more powerful than booze?
Ultimately, what are cell phones doing to our society besides tracking us, listening to us, and heating up our brains?
Cell phones are making us speechless. If we can't talk and communicate with one another on a human level instead of through some kind of technological interface, humanity is screwed.
"All we need to do is KEEP TALKING."
"For millions of years mankind lived just like the animals
Then something happenend which unleashed the power of our imagination
We learned to talk."
