    Mind boggling thoughts.

    Some smart phones light up when lifted vertically and then shut down when laid flat. I know my iPhone does this. Does that mean when it's in my pocket and I'm standing vertical it's lit up the whole time? >scratching head<

    "Fully rigid" isn't a thing.

    I hope so, that explains the long battery life anyway.

    You need to get some see-through pants and test your theory.

    That's what I've been waiting for. Have they been invented yet? At least some see-through pocket area pants so my ass crack isn't hanging out.

    Yes, it does that in your pocket and you should turn that function off. My grandmother got an iPhone recently and was complaining the her battery was dying within a few hours but only when out of the house. Turns out her phone was lighting up over and over again in her purse while moving around.

    Does this mean that DJ is a senior citizen?

    TevOR, you can't come prancing in here after a, who knows how long hiatus and call me old. We have a "50 year old plus" forum where that takes place daily.

    Besides the old iPhones die very fast. The new ones I have zero issue with battery life. Even while lit up in my vertical pants.

    Do you hold the phone at various distances from your face with that concentrated squint look? Is your font size enlarged on your phone? Do you put Walgreens OTC reading glasses on to see your phone?

    Let me know so I can tally the numbers and determine if you are old or not.

    Alright boys, I bet if you really put your mind to it you could come up with some other mind boggling thoughts other than my phone. That was just to get you warmed up.

    No.
    Just a thought on the refrigerator subject though.

    If you put your phone in the refrigerator and shut the door, the phone light probably will go out.
    Those refrigerator door switches are universal.

    I bought watch in 2004; Casio G Shock Ceptor and never knew it had a handy feature for a long time.
    One night when riding the motorcycle, I glanced over at my wrist to see the time figuring I'd barley be able to see the readout by overhead streetlights but to my surprise, rotating my arm (wrist motion) activates the lighted dial.
    I'd say it's very James Bond except it won't hypnotize people or shoot poison darts unless I just haven't found the right buttons.

    I guess you could check this theory if you have a Samsung phone: Stand up for a while, fart, and if you explode, you know it lit up...

    If an iPhone lights up in the forest, but no one is there to see it light up, would it wake DJ from his nap he's taking in his truck while double-parked at the mall?

    I don't know what dimension he's in, but there should be a space between each ellipse . . .

    I've only seen one member here (007) use them properly.

    Ellipses

    An ellipsis is a set of three periods ( . . . ) indicating an omission. Each period should have a single space on either side, except when adjacent to a quotation mark, in which case there should be no space.



    Please note: This is incorrect also, but it's funny, lol! (.)(.)

    Oh B.S. . . . I've used them correctly since being scolded by Korn several months ago. At least I thought I was using them correctly by diminishing how many I used. Now I find out there needs to be a space between each one. Why . . . why . . . why Korn didn't you make me aware of this sooner. All this time I've been living ellipsis deficient, with many whispering under their breath. Me none the wiser. I curse you ellipsis deficiency.

    I thought it was no space if next to quotation marks.
    I'm going running on the beach.

    Maybe I'll get that right
