  1. Is it depressing seeing everybody always on the phone everywhere you go? Should we ban phones to bring back civilization and normalness? Even the children do it. Think about the children!

      My phone is basically a moble extension of my PC whenever I have go to work/ anywhere else. If it weren't for it, I wouldn't get even half of my art-related work done, especially when I'm neck deep in art commissions, etc. Technology is awesome.

      I use my phone as a glorified MP3 player on the bus, and waiting for one when I cat sit my Aunt and Uncle's two cats. I do believe too much phone time is bad for your eyes and brain, but the way you voice your concerns, is, to be frank, really bad.

      Is it depressing seeing everybody in you one anyone's house glued to a television or a computer? Should we ban TV and PCs to bring back civilization and normalness? Even the children do it. Think of the children!

      Are you really going to use a "think of the children!" argument to prop this up? Because that isn't good, as Mighty says.

      No, getting rid of mobile phones is not a good idea. Despite the hindrances that come with them, mobile phones and by extension - tablets - not only allow people to be a lot more productive and complete work anywhere, but they also act as forms of entertainment, either throw playing games, watching movies/TV, or listening to music. Not to mention that said phones allow children to remain in contact with their parents and contact them in the case of emergency.

      Are phones as bad as rich people, then?

      I feel like this would be deeply hypocritical if he's saying this on his phone.

      Is it depressing seeing everybody always on the john everywhere you go? Should we ban public restrooms to cut back on water costs and sanitation? Even the lions do it. Think about the lions!

      This is more fun than Mad Libs

      @MightyRay That's pretty much all I use mine for is an MP3 player (hooked to a pair of speakers via an auxiliary cable), since it really serves no other purpose. Except for playing Bejeweled Stars like once a month and recording audio for my videos about 2 or 3 times a week in maybe 4-5 minute sessions depending on the video. That's why I limit phone usage for when I play Bejeweled because of the bright light (this can happen even after adjusting brightness to low) having an effect on the eyes after long enough exposure.

      Maybe we should ban obnoxiousness to bring back civilization and normalization first. 

      Real talk though you are making a big deal out of nothing. Sure there are pros and cons to phones as is pretty much everything else but the pros I feel outweigh the cons by a lot and I’m not the only one that thinks that per the comments here. 

      With phones you can keep in touch with friends and family, do a whole ton of things on a productive scale, have some means of entertainment and can even be a means of saving lives.

      I really wish you would think before making these kinds of statuses. They are disruptive and they really don’t give you a good look at all.

      Glad y'all had fun with the post however kinda surprised nobody longs for the old times when everyone wasn't constantly on a phone 24/7. Also people who use tv and computers are not taking it with them everywhere they go. Also we have record people who wear glasses which could be result of constant phone use.

      Also friendships are much harder today because everyone is always on their phones which means we don't observe our world. Go back and remember the time when you did not constantly go to phone screen. Remember those days?

      Hey @Kiah, was not purposely being as you say obnoxious, however I was expressing a concern I have. There was mix of humor in there too but perhaps you can the way it was worded could have been better.

      People could also be wearing glasses because their eyes get weakened by constantly staring at a TV or PC; at least a phone isn't as big as those. The reason people got into phones in the first place is because they asked what if they could take their TV and/or computer everywhere they go. What if you wanted to talk to people in the same room and they were all but you attached to the TV all the time? Smartphones wouldn't be an issue to you if it weren't for how TV and computer abuse became an issue to others, for the same reason.

      And chances are, anybody who does use phone could be talking to their friends on there, so don't be quick to assume that people who use cell phones are loners who don't get out and "observe the world" much. If you believe people who are friends online but never met in person is not a real friendship, then I respect that. But there's more to the lack of in person friendships then just people being distracted.

      I respect your opinion. All I can say is that I grew up in a time when phones were something that was plugged into the wall and computers with internet was not commonly used. I don't believe you can compare phones technology as new thing like computer was or how tv was when it came out or when the newspaper came out. It is very great point but it ignores the fact that phones today are causing a great unforeseen crisis that is only getting worse. I not saying that to be "obnoxious" it's based on my years of experience and seeing how the world changed. I am certain that even my own phone use is causing negative effects. I no longer see the world the same way.

      Your track record of status updates says otherwise but whatever you say. Especially since I nor anyone else saw anything funny with what you said there on top of you complaining about this subject several times previously in the statuses.

      Phones can be very useful especially if you do the thing that they were originally designed for such as talking to people (whether it is talking, texting or these days various online services). Smartphones have also replaced many of the old single use devices such as music players, cameras and yes, people even play games. Some even use them for tickets and allsorts. If you told me 15 years ago that phones would end up like this, I wouldn't have believed you.

      The problem is that people rely on stuff way too much depending their entire lives on it. From literally getting them up in the morning to falling asleep at night. I have seen people nearly get killed because they were glued to the phone. Ban phones, no way but at least educate the dangers of using them as well as cutting down use of them when you don't need to.

      Also I wear glasses. Not because of phone use (I am perhaps one of the few if not the only person here that doesn't have or use a phone, have a guess why) or the old excuses such as TV but because of genetics. My vision started getting bad during my teenage days and I wasn't on the TV as much or the computer when it started.
