Technology is a dependency. But there is a massive difference between needing power to stay alive and needing a smartphone.
I always wonder what would we do if our power grid was attacked & unable to function for more than a couple of days. It's a really scary thought.

Not everyone needs (or wants) a smartphone, and I know a couple people who do not have one. Some do need one. Of course, it is true that it is rarely a need on the same level as needing your medical technology to keep breathing.

I'm talking about those who believe they need it Ian.

This is not a challenge this is a discussion of a challenge.

Challenge: No social media (that includes Political Hotwure) for one full year.

- No posting on social media. Twitter, Facebook, Forums, SnapChat, etc.
- No reading social media.
- If you get news that includes social media, you source and read the news but skip over any instances of social media that is included.

Do you think you could do it?
Yes. Already did it. For 2 years. It was the day after Roberts betrayed the country and allowed Obamacare. Stayed off for 2 years.

I think I could do it, might not be fun but that's why it would be a challenge. :)
