On this background, the undersigned is familiar with the landscape of people not obsessing over their smartphone's wondrous capacities, and finds disturbing the widespread obsessive attention-tethering to one's smartphone -- which trait is not limited to first-world Asian nations' peoples, the following image notwithstanding.
In fact, in truly indelible fact, the undersigned is not using a smartphone to manage the telecommunication side of the defense of this blog and Mr Caidagh, and further toward that fact's point, the undersigned does not even own a smartphone.
Nonetheless, the undersigned is neither blind nor deaf, even if dumb; and the undersigned remains well aware of the techno-umbilicus-obsessive qualities regularly on display among all classes of Americans, including those filthy proles. And so, the undersigned pleads with you, good ladies and gentlemen of the jury, to consider amending the caption below by inserting "/tablet" after the word "phone."
Like a good dog, you will require some empathetic training to keep you from scratching that itchy hotspot on your four-legged corpus. The training may involve temporary prostheses, inasmuch as your willpower can only take you so far, and that destination is far short of where you need to be when you finally arrive.
Yes, there's a treat waiting for you when you master this new habit.
