Texting can be hazardous to your health.

Guy in Los Angeles Almost Walks Into a Bear Because He’s Texting. This happened a few years ago but still... yikes!

Re: Texting can be hazardous to your health.

A couple of years ago (more or less) I heard/read that the kids of today will have a carpel-tunnel types of disabilities regarding their THUMBS by the time they are adults. Because of over-using their thumbs texting, etc.   Hope it's not true, but it does make some sense.

I work with a lady who says her son doesn't have good penmenship because his muscles are underdeveloped for holding a pen or pencil.  She blames it on texting and playing video games.

 

I need an eye rolling emotie.

I would assume reading, painting, cooking, hunting, etc throughout millennia would have caused Humans to have sore fingers & hunched back by now.

Amazing how God's design is resilient to consistency and/or change.

What are the odds the anti-texting faction will see this & quote, "See, see??! Texting is bad'. Giggle. It's just a Big Ole Bear (said in prospector's voice)!!

Re: Texting can be hazardous to your health.

p.s.  If any teens want to go into medicine (career-wise), being a hand surgeon will be very lucrative.  Oh, wait, but they should make sure that they aren't overly texting now, because they will need precise hands, fingers, and thumbs in their profession.
