  5. ...Suddenly I feel a little less bad about being dateless.

  6. The real question here is, did she tell him that BEFORE or AFTER they watched The Golden Child together?

  7. Cyberpunk is here! This is just the start of what a Cyberbrain society would be like; problems emerging between people who have them and those who do not.

    1. Someone without an iPhone is a Luddite? That Apple Kool-Aid is powerful stuff.

  9. One has to wonder how she would feel about somebody like me, who STILL refuses to buy even a regular cell phone.

    Wow, anonymous 5:56, no phone? You're probably the most interesting guy ever. She probably would be like "woah! No phone? AND you post anonymously on the Internet? What an interesting guy! You're blowing my mind! Let's totally pork!"

  11. Are you of the body? Are you one with Landru? You will be absorbed. Your individuality will merge into the unity of good and in your submergence into the common being of the body you will find contentment and fulfillment. You will experience the absolute good. Peace & harmony. The body is one. Blessed be the body and health to all it's parts!

  12. Wow, really? No cell phone means you're a boring person? Maybe Anonymous 5:56 isn't the problem, Captain Eyeroll ...

    I don't have one, either. I work less than five miles from home, I don't have the type of job where I need to be on-call 24/7, so I don't see the need for the expense. Maybe Anon 5:56 has his/her reasons, too.

    If someone used my lack of cell phone to judge me, instead of the multitude of REAL reasons (overweight, own a pug dog, don't have a cool car), something tangible, I mean, then I'm probably better off without them.

    Take it and run

  13. There is nothing more ridiculous than being derided for posting anonymously on the internet by a guy (girl?) named Captain Eyeball.

  14. EarlAllison, how is judging you on your weight, choice of pet or ability to buy an expensive car any different than juding you on your lack of a cell fone?

  15. Anon 6:26,

    In the end, nothing, I suppose. The pug dog was a joke (I love my pug, even if she barks annoyingly all the time), but I've seen people judged for their car, and experienced what people decide of me based on my weight. A cell phone, or lack therof, just seemed absurd.

    I'd love for people to judge me (well, anyone, really, me or anyone else) on what I actually say and do, but while I can see making judgement on appearance or car (it's unfair and not correct, but it's understandable, if that makes sense), basing anything on a lack of cell phone just makes me scratch my head and wonder. I suppose it could be an extension of the car -- you don't have one, you're therefore poor or a Luddite or both, but it seems odd to me.

    I guess I tried to make it absurd and failed :( My bad -- at least my pug loves me (as long as I feed her, anyway).

    Thanks for the reply :)

  16. I don't have a cell phone either. Not only that, the phone in my living room is one of those old black rotary phones... just because. :D
