Indestructible

Few things in this world are considered indestructible – that includes this world. Only two things come to mind as indestructible – Captain Scarlet and the above phone.

The Nokia 3310 was legendary. By today’s standards this phone cannot do much but its durablity cannot be argued with.

Like everyone else I now have a smart phone. I dropped mine a couple of weeks back. Instantly the touch screen wasn’t working – then a purple something started to spread across it and by the next morning the screen was completely blank.

Meanwhile the 3310 can still function from being dropped from 300 meters up! A distance that would never happen!

Phones these days are shinny and slippery – they look nice but they are so easily dropped. I have got a new phone now with a robust case. As I said when I got it: “I want this thing to withstand a direct hit from a photon torpedo.”

I sound like an old curmudgeon with writing this don’t I?

Apropos of nothing at all here is something I found that made me laugh. I hope it will make you laugh too.

I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.

I have a Patreon page. I hope you will consider supporting this blog: https://www.patreon.com/unstableorbit
