Your smartphone📱is making you👈 stupid, antisocial 🙅 and unhealthy 😷. So why can't you put it down❔⁉️

Bonus: The Great Attention Heist

Apologies if I've linked this already... Repeat-Madness.
Now I'm flummoxed. Should I click on the links provided by Madness? Or should I just put my phone down?

If the argument is correct, then by clicking through and reading the argument, I would become stupider, since there I am, on my smartphone. But, if the argument is correct, reading the argument should make me smarter.

Quite a paradox, Madness. Kudos!

I simply post a percentage of links I read here if I think Bakker fans might be interested in them. I don't vouch for the argumentative or logical validity therein, titles or otherwise.

Somehow I feel like the three of us have now wasted seconds or minutes of our lives.

Not me. I enjoyed concocting the paradox. So, this "Bakker fan" was "interested ".

I enjoy talking, I don't feel it a waste. It's about connection, man - like totally.
