Please Don't Call Me


Thanks to our pal Moose who sent this to me.

If you think holding a cell phone up to your head is safe,
please watch this video.

Check it out on snopes.com. It's false. I saw this misinformation a couple of years ago.

Rat bastards!! They duped me and I went on a duping spree. Sorry Guy...but regardless... I still think that cell phones are the cause of the honeybees demise. From personal experience and testing, I found that providing cell phones to honeybee colonies rapidly led to colony breakdown with the worker bees no longer interested in foraging but more keen on texting each other and spending countless hours gabbing. Sounds emitted by the colonies of peep peep weeee zzzt zzzt can be loosely translated to "can you hear me now?" leading to the dissappearance of the bees as they jockeyed for a connection location. Free minutes were rapidly used up and with no regard to air time, and the colony slipped into financial collapse. Snopes that!

Donna, thanks for the reality check. Moose duped us all...Bad Moose, bad Moose, you even let down Beth, a fellow Canadian. Is there no end to your cruelty? I hope that bees propolize your phone, or at least the nine and one so you can't call for help the next time they go on a stinging rampage after they find the hole in your bee suit you keep neglecting to repair. Dirty rat bastard!

Loopy, just look away, there is nothing here to see.

P.S. Please don't call me anyway. I still think cell phones are dangerous and if one is looking to get into a field of medicine, brain cancer would be the one. Considering that most people have only gotten their phones in the past ten years...give it another ten years before the exposure becomes toxic.

P.P.S. Moose is still a rat bastard.

I think we've all been duped at one time or another. Let's just be glad Snopes is out there, or email would be a worse mess than it already is.

Sheesh, Guy you are really going off on poor old Moose, our neighbor to the North. Even though it is in his nature to play the trickster, he still is loveable!

I'm glad I rarely use my cell phone whether this video is a sham or not. I'm not so self important that I have to be in contact with someone 24/7. I rarely have that much to say to anyone.

rev, that is the way Guy professes to feel about cell phones too, but I will bet his I'd turned to the ON position as we speak!
