    New study suggests it's possible that using cell phones may help prevent some of the effects of Alzheimer's disease.

    Caveat: So far, results only found in mice.

    Caveat to the caveat: The mice in question were genetically modified to develop Alzheimer's disease for lab testing purposes.

    I like this better than imagining the walnut-shaped tumor my four hours a day on the phone has formed on the right side of my brain.

    My provider sucks so bad at my house I just say fuck it and use the land line. Hell, I'm paying for 60 free long distance minutes a month, might as well use them. Only reason I have a land line is for my DSL.

    I hate it when I get behind a mouse driving in the left lane and then when I finally pass it on the right it's talking on the cell phone. But at least he's less likely to get alzheimer's.

    Not a mouse, but a hamster.
