    If you have a LG cellphone, beware...

    T-minus 18 hours until my mother-in-law calls and tells us to get rid of our cell phones because they kill people...without, of course, knowing if we have LGs. (I used to but don't any longer...not sure about my wife)

    Cell phones kill bees, not people.

    I knew South Korea was out to get me. Eh, at least it's got Seoul.

    Another exploding cellphone urban legend. Right up there with "don't use your cell phone when you're filling up your car."

    I've never been to a gas station that doesn't have that sticker on the pump.

    Yet, I'm on my phone about half the time.

    A friend used to yell at me every time I was talking to her while pulling up to the gas station. I just sent her that link. Thanks, sir.
