Cellphones are the devil s work

Cellphones are the devils work   by Khalil A. Cassimally

Well, if I called the wrong number, why did you answer the phone? Cartoon caption by James Thurber.

But I say, I will not pick up my cellphone even if you called the right number. Message/Text me.

Lets put this straight: cellphones are a threat to both your privacy and your grey matter in the literal way.

You go to a party and find a really beautiful girl. You know that you have to talk to her. And thats exactly what you do. You grab two glasses of champagne and head towards her.
Euhem, you manage to utter. She turns to look at you. She smiles and you hand her the champagne. Then out of nowhere, your cellphone vibrates in your pocket.
Oh shit! you say. She glares at you and asks, sorry?

Damn the cellphone. Whats more, it was only mum calling to check whether you are all right.

Anywhere you go somebody can call you. Little by little, youve become an answering machine. And you dont even have a moment for yourself because the cellphone always rings/vibrates when you least need it to. Because cellphones actually do obey Murphys Law!

But then you might say that you dont even have a private life anymore, so why bother. Well you have to know that cellphones may damage people in other ways.

Only a small amount of energy is emitted by a cellphone. However even this amount will cause stress responses in your cells and affect your reflexes.

Cellphone radiation can even cause molecular changes in your cells. An experiment was performed by a Finish team to prove this. 4500 genes in human cells, cultured in laboratory, were exposed to cellphone radiation for only 48 hours. More than 20 genes were found to have had their activity rate interrupted. Now in your brain alone are billions of genes. Even if a small group of cells will be perturbed, the group isnt really small at all. It still contains several millions of genes. Are you prepared to lose these genes and consequently the cells then?

Cellphone radiation has yet another effect on your grey matter. It increases blood-vessel permeability in the brain. This permits molecules normally excluded from the brain to seep in. This same thing happens in rats brains. It is now thought that this bleach in the blood-brain barrier may be accompanied by the death of brain cells. If however you like the fact that all types of I-dont-know-what molecules are pouring into your defeated brain, then only may you continue to use your cellphones regularly. But dont blame me; blame yourself.

And yes; youre right! A rats brain is not like a mans one. In fact the energy absorbed by the rat is really low compared to what a person gets when using a cellphone! And what if the effects add up over time? Maybe your head will literally explode.

Neuroscientist, W. Ross Adey of Loma Linda University says, You have to ask, How much can people handle before it becomes a significant problem?

Cellphones may come in handy when youre in need. But remember that many of your cells are dying every time you pick up the cellphone. Hang up!

The why behind 1 1 2
The why behind 1+1=2 by Khalil A. CassimallyWhat does 1+1 equal to? Too easy of a question, you might think. Well yes the answer is 2. There were not any traps whatsoever. But why is it that 1+1 equals to 2? Whats the logic behind? This is an amazingly complex question actually.At first I was asking this question to literally everybody I met, just for fun. But then I realised that the why behind 1+1=2 may not be that simple; it was in other words of no joking matter.People always say truth...
