I don’t know why I am consistently surprised at the stupidity of people, but I am.
Here’s a concept for you: The NoPhone helps those addicted to their smartphone. The following story was by CNBC.
Chained to your smartphone? Maybe try the NoPhone
The iPhone 6 may help you stay connected to the digital world, but now there’s a “phone” that promises to keep you linked up with the reality.
The NoPhone, as described on its Kickstarter page is the “technology-free alternative to constant hand-to-phone contact that allows you to stay connected with the real world.”
The NoPhone is exactly what it looks like. It’s a black piece of plastic in the shape of an iPhone that does absolutely nothing, except act as a phone surrogate for those addicted to their smartphones.
“With a thin, light and completely wireless design, the NoPhone acts as a surrogate to any smart mobile device, enabling you to always have a rectangle of smooth, cold plastic to clutch without forgoing any potential engagement with your direct environment. Never again experience the unsettling feeling of flesh on flesh when closing your hand,” the NoPhone Kickstarter page states.
According to the Kickstarter bio, the folks behind this stunt are a few friends from the United States and the Netherlands who said the idea spawned from spending an evening at a bar staring at their phones instead of actually socializing, which is all too often the norm these days.
“Phone addiction is real. And it’s everywhere. It’s ruining your dates. It’s distracting you at concerts. It’s disrupting you in movie theaters. It’s clogging up sidewalks,” the website states. “Now, there is a real solution.”

I wouldn’t have the money to fix it up, but an abandoned island? Sounds awesome to me!
Read more about it below from SlipTalk.
What if I were to tell you that there is an abandoned island between Queens and the Bronx in New York? With a city that is populated with millions of people, how could there be anything, especially an island, that was completely abandoned? The island is called North Brother Island, and one reddit user came across the island when kayaking from Connecticut to New York. The pictures he took of the abandoned island near NYC are absolutely amazing, and it still blows my mind that this is unoccupied.
North Brother is located between the Bronx and Queens.
The island was developed in 1885. It was originally used to build a hospital complex.
They used the hospital to quarantine patients who had small pox or typhoid fever.
I saw this on the website Diply and just had to share.
