    This has been my theory all along. People are too afraid to be alone with their thoughts. I literally think it's destroying human interaction.

    Yes! This also explains the apathy of people in general. We live in a generation of not caring or not "giving a fuck", depressing really.

    I'm quite happy being alone in my thoughts (and oftentimes find myself that way on RJ, lol) and have also long held the same theory, yet I find myself wondering if cell phone addiction has suddenly become news, and why, since this is the third thread on it in the past month:

    Are smart phones ruining our overall happiness?: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3405982/

    Has Your Cell Phone Become A Ball & Chain Daily?: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3440085

    Btw, the "smart phones" thread shows the same clip.

    im very co-dependent on my cell phone.
    I love it and am not afraid to admit. I fucking love it. I can barely go to the bathroom without it. It's amazing and it does so much for me. I love it more than my parents. I love it more than anything, ever.

    Again, like the OP's post, even better the second time around:

    I posted this a couple of weeks ago. For a comedian, he sure is insightful. And he's great live too.

    not addicted at all, usually glad when the thing runs out of battery been known to accidentally not recharge it oops. I miss the days when people couldnt contact you unless you were home.

    I often notice that when someone in their car finishes up a call, they tend to hold the phone up looking for someone else to dial or text. That split second of alone is too much to bear.

    Unless there's a major movement to rid people of this habit, or somehow make a co-dependence on cell phones look really stupid, humankind is f*cked.

    More and more people are going back to this way of life, especially younger people.

    One of the reasons I only use my cell phone mostly for outgoing calls and emergencies, and rarely text, is because I don't want to be found. Making myself available to people 24/7 was never my thing. I even kept RJ's instant message function turned off because people can become so proprietary. I'd rather be alone in my thoughts than share most of theirs when I'm not up to it - I'll live longer.

    To me, its not a matter of not baring alone-ness, but a matter of learning normal human interaction. rather than interacting via electronics, talk to people in real life ! Interact!
