Maybe we should just take away phones from old people like we do with driver licenses.

I was thinking more a whitelist system. Aside from friends and family, who genuinely receives worthwhile phonecalls outside of work?

If you're on the whitelist, you can call right through, else you need to enter a pin.

So if you call a company and are expecting a callback, you can hold down * and it will whitelist them for an hour/day or something like that.

Well, the Kardashians are billionaires, Kansas et al. are dismantling public education, and our president is advising foreign firefighters.

It is a contender.

So, not taking them away at all?

Plenty of localities have "unsafe driver" policies.

For instance, The Ohio BMV will accept information from a law enforcement agency, court, physician, hospital, or rehabilitation facility that a licensed driver should submit a medical statement or take a driver license examination if there is "good cause to believe" that the driver is incompetent or incapable of driving safely. If a law enforcement agency or court makes such a request, there must be some personal observation of the subject's driving or personal contact with the driver.

So if grandpa is routinely demonstrating that maybe he shouldn't be piloting a 2000 lb hunk of steel, you have a way to maybe get him off the road.

Same thing.

Well, same idea.  Silly thing.  But it is what it is.

There. Is. Only. One. Timeline. There's no such thing as "the stupidest timeline" anymore than there is a "stupidest universe". There's just the universe and the timeline. Back to the Future was just a movie.
