    Holy shit.

    EDIT: I suck. But that video is still pretty cool, fake or not.

    Not debunked in my mind.

    That link never addresses how that video of four cell phones cooking popcorn is bogus.

    That's just what George Soros wants you to believe. He's shorting wireless communications right now.

    Either way, I'm going to stop holding my phone up to my ear while it's ringing.

    Can someone find a video that will prevent golfers from using cell phones on the course?

    Those people shouldn't be allowed on golf courses.

    What we know about these things is about what the medical community knew about smoking in 1958.

    This particular thing may be bogus, but I'd still be careful about having cell phones on your ear for an extended period of time.

    I love the speaker phone capability of mine.
