We'll probably all have brain tumors 10 years from now.....an evil plot from the Chinese government (they make a whole lotta cell phones, huh) to take over our country (though I thought we were dang near giving it to 'em). LOL

Who knows

I love 'em but I do think they are a burden sometimes. No one talks to each other anymore, people are texting and driving, new laws preventing texting and driving, kids using them to cheat on tests at school, etc. etc.

Safe how? Healthwise, I'd be suspicious *only* because the technology was not originally developed for near-continuous use. It is a fact that they emit radiation; whether or not that radiation can cause harm... personally I think that is a case of better safe than sorry.

I do wish people would not use them at all while driving... I was behind a car just a couple of days ago that kept suddenly swerving into the shoulder, speeding up and slowing down... when I finally felt it was safe to pass him, saw it was a 20-something with his cell phone in his hands and his eyes *not* on the road. That to me is most definitely a public safety issue.

I agree with Courtney that they can be "harmful" socially. Every member of our families has a cell phone, but I can't say we keep in better contact because of them. DH and I cannot afford cells right now, but I think even if we could we wouldn't want to have them again.

I think they're another distraction-def scary when driving

I don't worry because I bearly use mine. It's prepaid only for emergencys. I agree about the car thing and don't even get me started on the teens and the texting and the sexting and the picture thinging and the I think that they are rude when you are talking to people and that people can't function without playing with them and geting texts and calls all the time and OMG Ok I just can't stand them!!!!!!
