I have a cell phone, yep I do. so why am I saying you don't need one? Well the truth is you don't. My cell phone I tend to leave at home pretty much always. Why do I need to be able to be contacted at any time? For what. I don't suffer from "fear of missing out" syndrome, (Fomo) in fact I suffer from "Leave me alone syndrome." (Lma) I don't like being tracked by whomever, I don't like being disturbed by spam phone calls while I'm doing something I want to be doing, which happens a lot. If someone wants to let me know something or other they can leave me a message and I can tend to it when I feel like it.
People often ask me, "What if someone wants to get hold of you?" Well they can leave me a message and I will decide whether or not I'm interested and whether or not I need to phone them or whether a reply to the message will suffice. Not having a phone with me isn't going to kill me. In fact the opposite is far more likely to happen. You do know that cell phones are electro-magnetic transmitters and receivers don't you? And electromagnetism causes cancer, so why do I want to carry this harmful device around with me in the first place. How often do you see some other motorist driving along at a snails pace while texting or with the cell phone parked up against their head? How often do you hear of people involved in car accidents because someone was glued to their cell phone?
Your cell phone is a tracking device, it can also listen to everything said within range of the microphone as well as record every image coming through the lens whether the thing is even switched on or not. When you hold that phone to your ear the camera on the other side of the phone is active while you flood your poor little brain with electromagnetic radiation, literally flood. And the most astounding thing is, You don't even know who is listening to your conversation.
You cannot eat your cell phone. Yuk! Can you imagine? If you loose it you are more than likely to go into complete melt down, all your most valued and private documents, contacts, images and so on you store ON YOUR PHONE. How pathetic is that and how easy for someone else to manipulate and blackmail you with it.
One Sunday my sisters and I were walking around in their garden and just talking about various things and plants and so on. My one sister mentioned a plants she had heard about from a movie she had seen, it was called a Dragon Fruit Plant. Within a matter of minutes a message popped up on her phone, "Dragon fruit plants are available from such and such a nursery." We were amazed for about three seconds and then realised someone had been listening to our conversation. Yes, she had her phone with her but she hadn't even tried to Goggle it (spelling intentional.)
So, you have to have a cell phone do you? No you don't.
