A sorry comment on the level of human intelligence today, and truer than we might want to admit.

So I'm just taking out the garbage, and what do I see in the almost empty parking lot next door?

 

If you guessed, "Two girls boxing, both with real (sized) boxing gloves, while another girl and guy, took videos," you would be right.

 

They went at it, pretty furiously, for about 15 seconds.

 

Then stopped, started laughing, took off the gloves, and got in an SUV.

A blessing in disguise:  Neurological problems have severely affected my hands with the result that a "touch screen" cell phone is useless to me thus I carry an old flip phone with real keys.  Advantages: Cheap phone, cheap plan (even on Verizon)  Disadvantages:  Since I don't do Facebook, Snapchat or any other social media, none.

I'm with you Alan.   Also using an old flip phone for something simple like phone calls only, keeps you from being tempted to check online every 4-5 minutes for facebooks, snapchats or other  ways to keep from having face to face live interaction with PEOPLE.

Alan, I recently "upgraded" from an *old* flip phone (an old Samsung Tracfone) to my sister's unused iPhone 4s. The biggest advantage I find of the smartphone is I can have music with me, I can text (rarely done but is useful when needed) and I can use a map if I'm unsure of the location of an address (another rarity). 

 

I don't need to upgrade. The 4s is more than what I need.. Yes, I have Twitter and use that app but really only at home and on the weekend when I'm eating breakfast. I'd still have the old flip phone if the carrier wasn't forcing 2G phones off the network.
