Unsocial Media

Phone fucked up the other day. I was without technology until about 7 at night. After the first hour or so when I'd normally be checking here, Twitter, news, weather, using it as a clock or a torch or a camera, I stopped missing it. I miraculously took a train journey without needing to check the times, attended a football match without needing to check other team's scores, ate out without checking if the place was ok first and took another train, a wireless carriage with a phoneless passenger. God it was good. Makes you realise how much shit we end up using them for, how did we ever cope without? Going to try and use it less now, y'know, talk to people, read books, stop looking at videos of people falling through ice, that sort of thing. MOT

Agreed, I was in the petrol station in headingley and moortown Corner the other day and they are selling basic phones I thought I fancy one, no Facebook or email, like you say watching someone fall through ice etc it's just so shit and repetitive I'm making a conscious effort not to look at all that crap, I know it was still a phone but it was exactly just that...a phone... some tiny ones that I doubt you can even message on, love em, we are able to survive without all the modern day bollox, actually feel unique when I sit in a bar or cafe and don't sit glued to a device. I remember riding from Northampton to yeadon on a dt 50cc when I was 16 had written instructions wrote by my old man sellotaped to petrol tank and yes I got there no problems, in France a few years back just a map on the petrol tank love all that.

Good shout fella.

Only got a mobile in first place cause both parents are ill and they can contact me, not that I can do much whilst working away like, never had 2facebook or twatter accounts and don’t think I ever will, social media is this site.
I do use my phone for work more than owt else but can happily leave it at home when not working.
If you weren’t in pub at 7 you had to go round usual haunts till you found everyone or you even popped 2p in a box and rang the boozer..

My mobile phone is mobile alright, I stick it in my pocket every morning and it goes around Leeds Keeping me company, sometimes in my glove box. The only problem is, I may as well not have the fuckin thing, because I rarely remember to switch it on. If it’s in my glove box, I probably won’t even think about it till I get home, then I’ll take it out and go indoors. First words from the missus “did you get my text ?”

The President

They won’t cancel the visit of Donald despite all the squealing from the lefties on the BBC and the snowflake generation across Britain. They can talk about it all they want, they can hold their protests, and they can have umpteen more documentaries slating Donald on TV. Truth is, the people that matter don’t want to alienate themselves from their biggest Allie while the rest of Europe is giving us a good kicking over Brexit. When he does come, I’ll be down to London to welcome him.

It's all about opinions I suppose. But it's fair to say the majority of Britain side with Sadiq Khan when he states Trump is not welcome in the UK. MOT.

Wish he was handling the Brexit negotiations instead of the insipid crew we currently have. And Sadiq Khan is not anti ISIS. No right minded person should agree with anything he says.

I don't know who the fuck this "majority of Britain" you are talking about is, but I don't know one person that actively wants the visit cancelled.
You been watching too much BBC propaganda fella. I can't watch BBC news programs anymore, it's bullshit social engineering propaganda shite. Congratulations on being a soft touch with no thoughts of his own.

more like social control media....

Trump is hardly Pol Pot or any number of truly despicable figures that people have had to suffer through the years - but millions of total knobs via social media have generated such a distorted view of the man that only they themselves can take it seriously. Yes, he's clumsy, egoistical to fantastical heights and prone to misjudgment but he's hardly the enemy.
The UK Govt will not & should not cancel a visit from a US President. Besides, I remember the visiting Obama making veiled threat against the good people of this country if we dared to vote to leave the EU.
The only thing that will annoy me when he comes is the usual suspects taking to the streets and spewing their bullshit claims of his plans to oppress them all.
I am in no way a fan of his but US politics has been driven to such levels of self interest and careerism that it is amusing to see those who believe they should run things having to deal with Trump running things now.
