Dear External:

Fuck bluetooth.

In fact, fuck everyone who feels that they are so self important to have a phone jacked into their heads 24 hours a day.

During office hours, maybe, but on a Sunday afternoon while you are raking the leaves off your lawn?

Get the fuck over yourself already.

Love,
Grampz

The ultimate in these cell phones morons are the ones who are SO important they MUST take a call in a public restroom. Nobody is that important.

I still want to design a hack that would take over anyone’s frequency to my bidding. Yeah, that would rock.

I’ve done a bit of bluejacking. Many people used to have their phones set to accept any incoming bluetooth connections.

New phones aren’t set up that way anymore, but it was fun for awhile to mess with people in public places as they received what they (mistakenly) took to be text messages which were only labeled bluetooth contact requests.

They’re not really talking to anyone but themselves.
That’s right. They’re just crazy people who walk around and mutter to themselves all day. Take away their headsets and they’d soon be pushing a grocery cart and sleeping under overpasses.
The headsets are the only thing that let them ‘pass’ in ‘normal’ society.

amen to that grampa! i think one that engages in such behavior has a lack of self esteem.

Thank you. I understand your pain. When asked when I would get my pager for work my response was something like ‘are you fiucking kidding me? i’m here 10 hours a day as it is’.

No. No. No. There is no reason that we should be able to have some ‘alone time’. In fact, maybe we should mandate that at least 2 hours of non-sleeping, non-working, non-on-the-damn phone time.

I f’ing LOVE this post! I am NOT available 24/7 – and I do not carry a cell phone in my dreams either.

I think that you’ve made the right choice.

Watch subject. Bush goes ballistic about other countries being evil and dangerous, because they have weapons of mass destruction. But, he insists on building up even a more deadly supply of nuclear arms right here in the US. What do you think? What is he doing to us, and what is he doing to the world?
Are we safer today than we were before?
The more people that the government puts in jails, the safer we are told to think we are. The real terrorists are wherever they are, but they aren’t living in a country with bars on the windows. We are.
