Are mobile phones killing us?

This looks fun, but when you think about it it's rather disturbing... Thoughts?

Is this for real? Does that phone give off heat? Surely not. :?

all the microwaves could be making a lot of damage in our brains. If you talk a lot on the phone you could be roasting or frying your brain!

I agree. I would love to see a definitive study done on the effects of mobile phones. Lord knows a won't admit to it. I have read a few different studies that seem to indicate different effects. I wonder if wireless VoIP has the same potential negative effect as regular cellular service. It probably has to do with the type of and being used.

Now this is only antidote evidence (so if those of you who don't like that would just ignore this. I'm not going to argue about it, I know what I experience) but I have discovered a really good use for those phones! There was a theory for a while that they were responsible for killing off honey bees. They've since found that not to be true but cell phones do seem to throw off their navigational system while flying and they stay away from them. It used to be that whenever I was outside, I was constantly being pestered by them. Not anymore, not since I've kept the phone in my pocket! All is good!

In about a hundred years time, humans will have evolved into creatures with huge bulbous eyes, short stubby fingers and have big f*ck-off pointy thumbs, all designed to achieve their primary goal, to be able to accurately hit those little f*cking keys with.

Shhhhh! The links may already be among us! :lookround:
