    There are days when my phone rings so many times with nuisance calls that I sometimes think the world would truly be better off is there were to be a global EMP powerful enough to send us back to the stone age or at least pre mobile phone age.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Worldwide catastrophic EMP would = approx. 6,500,000,000 deaths. Be careful what you wish for.

    Frank the solution is simpler than that. I speak from experience.

    I just do not carry a phone around with me. I only take a phone when travelling because it would be useful in an emergency and sometimes to notify people of a safe arrival at destination. I am not bothered by calls even then, I guess anyone who wants to call me knows that I only rarely have a phone with me.
    So we do not have to return to a pre mobile phone age, as individuals we can act as if we are in that age.

    Oh yes, I forgot the urgent calls, the 'world will end if I do not take it' calls. Generally what is urgent today is not tomorrow. Armed with that insight, I can wait until tomorrow and by extension that means that I can wait forever.

    I have spent the vast majority of my life without the dubious benefits of instant communication, I am sure that I'll be able to live out the rest of my life in the same way and remain more content than most worrying about 'who was that missed call from?'. OH NO, NOT A MISSED CALL.

    Since I am frequently working alone I carry a mobile phone for my emergency situations Fortunately, none have yet occurred, but I like to be prepared.
