A Weapon of Mass Destruction

From Arch Hart’s book on “Adrenaline and Stress” (p181.):

‘I sometimes find myself wishing Alexander Graham Bell had not invented the telephone; it has become such an intrusively destructive instrument in the hands of those who do not have the courage to control it’

  1. I reckon the telephone is a lot less distracting than it was even just 5 years ago. A lot more people rely on texting, fbing or good old-fashioned e-mail to communicate, especially just information.

    Most times now if the landline phone rings I know it is a family member or something that is genuinely urgent. Other things get done on the mobile, which can be switched off or switched to silent. fb and e-mail are potentially distracting, but you have to be sitting at the computer for these distractions to operate.
