None for now, too much $$$, my work is shop related, sweat by the brow work, funny, I'm college edumicafated<<lol and some pilot training yeup I did solo a few times and 47 hrs dual, but I restore classic autos, and a free lance artist, I don't need any extra expenses now. Kevin I noticed at the rec center something I see a lot of, a young feller lifting weights for a few seconds, then he picks up his smart phone, then lifts weights and back and forth, very odd, I don't like to be bothered when I'm working or exercising.....:cool:

For some the constant need to be connected is nearly an addiction. And the phone makers are OK with that.

Alter says that technology is designed to be addictive and that the gratification it provides is similar to that of other addictive behaviors, such as drug abuse or gambling.

Its odd for us gen x'rs, I had some nice neighbors, whose kids would play basket ball, then like a twilight zone episode they dropped the b-ball, reached for their smart fones, and started messing round? weird, their b-ball rolled down the hill about a block, until they noticed it 6 minutes later, the chased it, played again, then back to the phone. Back in my day, you hit the court, play ball, sweated, drinked dr peppers and ate funyonions, and chilled out with your bros, sorry dude these youngins are indeed odd.....
