Yeah, I don't watch TV either, and haven't had cable for 15+ years. I have some ol' reliable things downloaded that I'll throw on from time-to-time, like an episode of "The Waltons" or something, but I got so fed up with commercials and the outright crap that's presented anymore I stopped.

I understand the business justification for social media, because that is a valid justification. I have no need there. The false dopamine pleasure from those Likes is destroying the human. Jesus, people are getting pleasure from feedback, yet since they are phony and fake online, it's all false! They are living in, and getting pleasure from pure falsehoods and make-believe. People looking down at their phones all the time makes me absolutely sick and disgusted. Next time you walk down the street, pay attention to how many people make eye contact with you compared to how many are blindly walking along looking down at their phone.

Fsck, sit in a restaurant and pay attention to the tables. The vast majority of people, even at the same table, aren't even communicating or looking at one another. Again, they are on their phones.

Not for me. I don't even spend time with anyone who can't go out for a bite to eat, a walk, a drive or anything if they can't leave their damned phone alone for an hour... or hell, five minutes.

    Some time ago I decided that my phone's place, smart or not, is left of my keyboard. I'm not taking it with me to let Google spy on my ways, or let someone haul me back in with a large, invisible rope whilst I'm out in the woods with my dog. People can reach me when on duty, and when I decide to be available.

    More off-topic, it looks like my IT career is coming to an end - if there was any career at all, that's not what I pursue. At least making a living from that is ending. So, less attached, and less harm done.
