Awesome!! Thanks for voicing what millions of us feel! Time for Operation STOP SELFIES: Stop Taking Our Own Pics! Somebody Else's Laughing Face Is Extra Special. Spread it!

If I get together with loved ones, we will take pix

I expect to see out of town friends and family, and I see no reason to take pix with them. I have Never taken a photo of myself alone.

No EGO zone here!

I must admit....I do have a smart phone, but for one reason ....EMERGENCIES ONLY! I'm not an EGOTIST, nor am I a NARCISSIST. I see ZOMBIES walking around with phones stuck to their walnuts (heads), and I even see the same thing driving cars!!! INSANE in the MEMBRANE....INSANE in the BRAIN!!! I have use for people with smart phones....they are ALL HIGH MAINTENANCE and DISASSOCIATED people. Enough said.

Congrats on a great message!

What an incredibly important message to share at this critical time! Less "me" will lead to much more "we." And, unity is the greatest shortcut to enhancing ourselves, our families, the Jewish People and indeed all pf humanity in th eyes of Hashem. Way to go, Kurt and the entire Aish team! May we all be incribed together in the "Book of Wonderful Life!"

How about putting down the cell phone


I recently decided to put my cell phone on the book shelf when I get home and only use it if someone calls me (i.e. no looking at e-mails until I get to the office the next morning). There are other things more important than seeing every e-mail and SMS the second it comes in.
