There are times when I really wonder at the sanity of the modern generation.
I was poking around last night and came across one of the strangest things I have seen in a while.
Apparently there is an application [and I refuse to use that tacky term ‘app’] for your mobile phone that rewards you for going to the gym and penalises you if you miss a session.
Within two seconds of reading about it, I thought up enough flaws to make this idea completely unworkable, unless of course you have either an IQ in single digits or are a member of the iPhone generation, which amounts to the same thing.
First of all, how does the phone know you are in the gym? It can’t possibly know the location of every gym in the world so what is to stop me registering the back bedroom as my gym? All I have to do then is to stay in that room for half an hour and I get my reward.
Suppose I don’t particularly enjoy the gym and have only joined to watch wimmin in tight leotards? The chances are I am going to be regularly fined, so am I really so fucking thick that it doesn’t occur to me to remove the application from my phone? No application, no fine.
Finally, what kind of brain-dead moron wants his mobile phone to nag or chastise him? What kind of idiot is going to shell out hard cash for something that is going to cost him money? What kind of imbecile thinks it is fun to be ruled by a mobile phone?
I really despair for the modern generation.
All those thousands of years of evolution and look what we end up with.
It wouldn’t surprise me if they discovered that the dinosaurs had invented the mobile phone.
It would explain why they are extinct.
