    How does anyone on earth do this?

    I lost my phone on Tuesday, and have been without one for the rest of the week so far.

    On the train to & from work - what do I actually look at? Can't look at people. That's how you become the train weirdo (every train has one). Nothing to see out of the window after work in the pitch black, so I found myself reading the Welsh signage on the train windows & doors, and guessing what it meant without reading the English bit. Kept me occupied for a full 10 minutes, that.

    Had to use a watch to tell the time, like the olden days!!

    I didn't know Nuge's bum chum was embroiled in a scandal until a full 24hrs after the story broke. During the day tomorrow, we could declare war on France, and I'd have no idea that I'd be conscripted by teatime.

    Had to resort to the wank bank, again like the olden days.

    Had to actually do some work whilst in work, too.

    All-around terrible week.

    It's a blessing and a curse. There's that one analogy Joey Diaz talked about, being a kid in disney land. It's sensory overload and by the end of the day your brain is fried from taking in all the information so your are mentally worn out. That basically happens day in, day out, all day now because of the internet, phones etc. all getting cooked on information.

    I fucking despise youtube at the moment, the ad ratio is beyond the pale. Going without for a bit ain't so bad

    Love it..We had phones for emergencies and French TV that I never watched. Radio on in the background. First few days it's a bit weird, Not for long though. Talking, reading, puzzles, bbq's sitting out in the late evening sun. It was ace. I was tired earlier and slept much deeper and woke up refreshed. I hope to do it again next summer.

    You need an adblocker. I've never seen an ad on youtube.

    It's called YouTube premium now but as Steve R said, any decent adblocker should ensure you never have to sit through an ad on YouTube again, although that is for desktop PC's/Laptops, not sure what Android users have to do.

    Yeah I know the family all talking to each other and really engaged in the moment it was like when we had the power cuts in the early 70s it brought the family together more. Im off to Thailand in a couple of months so you've just made me think it's time.:thumbup:

    Bearing in mind I spent most of my life without one, I too would be lost without mine.
    I wouldn’t know where I was supposed to be, wouldn’t know anyone’s numbers, I can’t even remember my wife’s or son’s numbers.
    God knows what I’d do on the train home.
    Looking back, for a night out me and my mates would have to agree a time and place 48 hours before and just be there.
    Before he left home, I’d give my son a lift into town to meet his mates. “Where are you going?” I’d ask, “dunno” would be the mumbled answer, followed by ten minutes of WhatsChat and SnapApp a couple of changes of direction before finally making their fucking minds up.
