This is absolute bonkeringness of epic proportions. I thought it was now recognised that mobile phones had no negative effects.

All this will do is make people paranoid (more so than they were already)... Those 10 people who voted for this need sitting in a room with 500,000 mobile phones... yeah, that'll teach em!

Could the phones be all perpetually phoning Assland, or whatever Ken Ham's freak circus of mutant science is called?

RP, my hat is once more swept from my head at the sight of commentary I wish I'd done first, you little bitch.
An omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God would know exactly why I don't believe in him, but would send me to hell regardless. Have I just described your God?

The only danger from cell phones is that fact it turns people in terrible drivers, and assholes.

You know, It's stuff like this that makes me fearful for the future of my country, and makes me wonder if most of my fellow Americans suffer from some-sort of unknown mental deffciancy. I know our educational system isn't the best, but I went through it and you won't see me backing something as stupid as this bit of rubish legislation....

Actually, they don't 'turn' people into assholes or bad drivers. In fact all they do is make it easier to discern assholes from good people, mostly on the subway or the bus. Regarding the driving issue... people can divide their attention by many other means, as well. Whatever it is they do besides driving increases the risk of making a mistake. The many laws about installing a hands-free device in cars so you don't get distracted by holding a phone to your ear are fucking bullshit, too. As Ellen Degeneres so brilliantly put: "Now we have hands-free phones, so you can focus on the thing you're really supposed to be doing ... chances are, if you need both of your hands to do something, your brain should be in on it too." Of course all experiments conducted show that her intuition is right (Redelmeier & Tibshirani, 1997; Consiglio et al., 2003; McKnight & McKnight, 1993; Patten et al., 1999; Lamble et al. 1999).

The UK Government has recently introduced a plan to help identify assholes by forcing them to fly white flags with red crosses on them on their cars....what...oh, er, sorry. I've just been informed that apparently this actually has something to do with the World Cup. It is just a coincidence that so many of the people who have them on their cars also seem to be asshole drivers.

Actually I honestly didn't, however I have little doubt I got it from somewhere as the suggestion comes up when ever there is a big sporting event on.

Rather than inform, the ordinance will potentially mislead consumers with point-of-sale requirements suggesting that some phones are 'safer' than others, based on radio frequency emissions," said John Walls, vice-president of public affairs for the CTIA.

Isn't this the whole reason it got passed? Corporate pressure and stuff so people who don't make too good phones can get sales by another variable.
