    What if 29 years ago, we banned cell phones?

    Does this idiot understand the irony in tweeting this?

    Damn, yeah! We STILL don't know what the long term affect will be since cancer rates don't peak for 40 years. The gubberment should ban those things.

    I remember the days people used to write letters on paper and actually send them in the post.

    Awwwee now I feel like a sell out

    I held out buying another mobile phone for over two years- technically I did have one but gave to daughter with excuse she needed one - which was true sorta- they didnt have to know it was her back up phone that has sat in a drawer all this time ( dunno why people want them - all that yapping about stuff I mostly dont care about )

    Broke finally yesterday after missing someone by five mins 80ks out of town and then fighting with my bank over them smsing my old number rather than emailing me over a corrupt card.. then not being able to buy a load and go visa bc of no mobile -_-



    Overrated imho - although I might try for a while at least not to 'accidentally' lose it in my car ...

    You can still do that, but now it costs a dollar and takes six days instead of costing seven cents and taking two days...

    Unless you pay another 50 cents apparently, and then it takes just four days.

    Yeah, but that was back when AusPost actually delivered letters and parcels to the correct address ...

    Yeah but back then mail was solely delivered by postman, employees rather than subcontractors to Austpost
