Any tech that requires CUTTING yourself to remove it is NO BUENO.


Remember when phones were huge? We laughed at how huge they were. The oldest satellite phones looked like an Army issue two-way radio. Of course the satellite phone was pretty neat in the right hands. People who wanted to show off. Soon after though, phones were getting smaller. It was good. You could fit a phone in your pocket, and that was definitely an advancement over having to be home to answer the phone attached to the wall. Crazy! The new small phones were amazing. If you went to the beach you could stick the phone in your shoe. It had really tiny numbers on it so a lot of people would use a pen or pencil to type on it. A finger might be too big and you’d hit three or four numbers at the same time. Then phones got even smaller and you had to have the option of the touch screen so the buttons were the right size for human fingers. And not long after that phones started getting bigger, tablets came out–and tablets started getting better. Even though the same companies making phones also make tablets, there seemed to be this competition thing going on, so phones started doing things that tablets did and tablets started doing things phones did. Then they started to look and act like each other. Gone are the days when you could fit a phone in your pocket. They’re just too big now. And now companies are trying to convince us that we’ll have tablet-phones embedded in our palms?! Ouch! I’m kidding of course. They’re actually talking about embedding chips in our hands. Forget about it! The “next great idea”? I don’t think so. I say, unless I have a cybernetic limb, or something, with hydraulic action so I can leap really high, or crush heavy metallic things, then I don’t need any internal microchips. I’ll keep the microchips external, thank you. Do I really need a chip that goes with me? No, not really. Anything that requires CUTTING yourself to remove it is obviously a bad idea.

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
