To avoid being zapped by alien airwaves, I recommend using "Semaphore". This low-tech communication method is a lot cheaper and more fun than a bag of juicy-fruit bubble-gum. After all, how many people do you know who carry around flags all day long, flap their arms, and look a tad miffed when cab-drivers interrupt their train of thought and terse text messages?
As for "laptops", they seem to languish about prominent places. Have you ever noticed how they invite unwanted attention from sticky-fingered sorts who can't wait to abscond with them when you're responding to call of nature? Then there curmudgeons like me who think it's a waste of time to invent something that helps nincompoops organize their recipes, play solitaire, or keep them busy looking for a non-existent mouse.
Being from ďold schoolĒ, I was always taught that children should be seen and not heard. Now if only that credo would apply to all these modern communication tools, world would be an infinitely quieter place.
Just imagine a world without wireless windbags, wonky windows, or wicked weirdoes Öwhere we would all be free to follow our bliss ...be it picking four-leaf clovers, drawing dorky droodles, coloring outside lines, or maybe even tickling someone pink for a change!
