I just came off of starting up a controversial thread, so I am hoping that this issue will be just as informative, or maybe even persuasive for that matter (only for the number of viewers who are not aware of the hazards).
I say it alot - my generation has been spoiled with Technology. I will admit, not all of it bad, but most of it kills our mentality.
I have a cell phone, but on the verge of tossing it away. Not because it was turned off last year, but now because as I grow in these days, I am becoming wiser in what I possess. With that being said, I don't need a cell phone. Some people say it would be nice to have one, but I think not.
First of all, I have issues with cell phones such as ringtones, loud speaker (supposed to be privately interpersonal) conversations, and such, but when they all add up, my issue is the fact that it is just one big "Dis-traction." It causes a number dis-tractions in public, when it could be easily kept at home. Some people sit at home all day arguing and fussing at each other over the phone - next thing you know, they both invest in cell phones, and carry their madness into public. To quote modern-day black folks: "Ain't nobody try'na hear all that!" Keep it to yourself, and leave the phones at home. Your privacy is your business; no need to bring it out into public. That is outside the health dangers, although there are some.
