I wasn't sure whether to put this on the Off Topic or the Humor Forum...

On phones and escaping from sadness.

The Digital Detox is a tech-free retreat where individuals give up their smartphones and gadgets, unplug from technology, and get away from the stress of everyday life for a few days to recharge their mind, body and soul.

Ahhhh, yes. That "forever empty". I am all to familiar with my own "forever empty." Need as many things to take that shit away as possible. Cell phones do help. Alcohol and weed help more.

I fucking love Louis CK, BTW. Been a fan of his for a long time. Peace,

Ken

I went ahead this year and bought my own JOMO banner (joy of missing out) with my own pic of a nature scene and hung it in my room. A reminder to tune out before burning the midnight oil too often.

Don't know if I'd call technology an addiction, think more of it is a balance thing. But, the whole idea behind JOMO is something that wouldn't have gained much traction 20 years ago.

this is me and my son smile



it may look funny, but i wish it wasn't so.
i have been working hard to get him out of his room and into some sports.
i have to drag him to swimming pools and long walks.
the only physical activity he actually enjoys is archery,
so we try to get out to the range about twice a week,
but it usually ends up being only once, due to my stupid work schedule.

LOL. Similar story. Mine broke. It was supposed to be exchangeable, but then they tried to tell me there was going to be a fee to activate the new one. So in an impulsive moment I told them to just shut down the account instead. Haven't regretted that at all. If anyone ever looks shocked that I don't have a cell phone, I tell them they are perfectly welcome to buy me one because they obviously care about it more than I do. No one has taken me up on that yet. grin
