Go outside and take a walk! – TTG

This parody was put out by Inspired by Iceland, a public-private communication platform to promote Iceland and Icelandic products owned and operated by Business Iceland. They gave us Björk Guðmundsdóttir for God’s sake. Of course it’s quirky. I think it’s on the mark (Pun not intended, but there it is.), brilliant and just good advice. 

Drop the damned smart phones, get off your fat spreading arses and get outside.

    We could have our lives back if every single person on earth threw away their slave master cell phone.

      Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a luddite. Hell, I even conducted HUMINT operations in FIDONet, IRC, QQ and Second Life for years. I elicited intelligence of major significance in all of those online operations. But I don’t miss that stuff now.

    Did a lot of football watching yesterday and noticed all the upraised cellphones in every crowd victory celebration surrounding the winning teams.

    Young people seem to have a universal and permeant connection with their cell phones – if I don’t get it on my cell phone camera, it did not happen. Who has to look at all their photos – or are they hoping to get the money shot that lets them retire early?

    ITA- get outside and take a walk – life’s online intensities drop instantly. Along with blood pressure.

    Yes, indeed. Spot on! We have the most immersive metaverse in reality. Get out and interact should be the mantra. The authoritarian covidiots however sure are working overtime with their fear mongering and snake-oil lockdowns and mandates that push for more virtual connections. Immensely destructive!

    Great advice, TTG. The devices are an addiction and most of the information that comes through them is BS designed to enslave your mind (and wallet). I don’t even own one. Work gave me one for work purposes only, but now that work related travel is a thing of the past, I use it maybe once a month, at most. Otherwise, all work calls/meetings are on the land line in my home office or on WebEx via the corporate VPN. When I’m away from my desk and out of the house, I’m on either on my own or with my wife or friends. No distractions from deranged marketers out there in the ether.

    At the risk of sounding preachy, IMO, not only should we go enjoy the outer world without interference, but also people should enjoy the inner world – learn to meditate and shut down the inner voice(s) in their own heads that define and narrow the reality we perceive and who we think we are. Bored with yourself and your life? Seeking escape? Stop the internal voice(s) = stop the world = opening to new potentials. Live instead of simply exist.

      Good idea. Getting out in the natural world alone is a wonderful way to shut off our inner voices and listen to what nature and the spiritual world has to tell us.

    Brilliant parody, thanks. Funny that he couldn’t open the door — it probably required an app to do it.

    One of our tenants was recently boasting about an app he installed on his phone that turns his lamps on and off. While he was demonstrating it, I thought to myself, “why doesn’t he just reach over and turn the lamp switch?”. A week later he went out of town and texted us, asking if we would turn off his lights — he forgot to do it before he left. What?!?! What good is the app if it only works when he’s home? He also forgot to adjust his thermostat, which BTW is programmable. SMFH…

    My husband and I love nothing better than taking long walks together. We thank God we’re fit enough to still do it!

    Their water is wet! But does it have salt?
