Of those who responded "No," some still cited that they leave their phone on a nightstand nearby or beside the bed. Well, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but neither case is good for your health

Oh. Malarkey. It's no worse than a clock or the t.v. in your room. Unless you are a psycho teenager who hasn't figured out Do Not Disturb. Then I guess I get it.

Yay bullshiat clickbait posing as science!!!

Im so glad their study of studies made sure to check EVERY SINGLE THING that can have an impact on your sleep, and not just phone proximity. That way we know there isnt any corallation causation malarky going on

Nighttime access to electronic devices? You mean like a TV in the bedroom? Clock radio on the nightstand? You already got your clicks, so go back in your hole for a while.


/Yeah, I know, but some folks really did just zone out watching the 2AM infomercials anyway.

Well, I see this has been covered a couple times for the clickbait article.  Wonder if the article writer realizes that the cell phone has mostly replaced the clock radio for waking people up yet.

/laptop replaced the bedroom T.V. long time ago

And?  Before the pandemic, 75% of all the money thrown into our healthcare system has gone toward treating diseases that are usually preventable.  People only care about their health once it's gone.  Why should health issues related to lack of sleep be any different?

I have no one else to sleep with, and my phone has little people in it who like me.

Who else here thought at first that this had something to do with extended exposure to electromagnetic (EM) radiation?

I know, you all don't notice.  now listen to this:  I have a horrible phobia or I don't know what you call it, about cell phones.  Well, all phones, I hate them.  I had a stalker once, which made me avoid phones completely, but I am not good with phones anyway.  I don't like to call strangers on the phone, and do everything I can to avoid it.

I think they will do nothing but signal bad things, and I have such an aversion to hearing the sounds from my phone that it is almost always on silent, or turned off.  I started hearing the little clicks from texts coming in (I had it set for the littlest noise, on the smallest volume), and I had to turn that off, because I started hearing them all the time, even when my phone wasn't there.  I finally learned to set my ring tone to a song that I like, because any ringer noise will make me jump out of my skin.  And then I'll freeze up if the thing rings, because it's probably someone coming to get me, and I probably wont answer it, but if I do, it's an ordeal.  I look over and see that thing sitting on the beside table (always face down, so it can't get me), and I make sure that it's either off or can't make noises.

I'm the person who has been bothered for 20 years by people's cell phones going off in stores.  I'm the one who can hear the ringtones when they aren't there, who can hear the ping of a text coming in from someone else's phone, and I want to climb the walls.
I don't think that I'm really all that oversensitive, except for my issues from being stalked.  I think you all are dulled.  I think you all are dulled by being overstimulated from the day you were born with electronic noises and flashing lights and sensory overload, and you've learned how to tune it out--or you think you do.  It's still there, hyping us all up into some frenzy of working and doing and shopping and checking the phone, in case we MISS OUT.  That is a deliberate move by the people who love you so, they want you to forget who you are, so they provide a constant companion to distract us from anything that might not be consumer-related, like relationships with other actual humans, or the knowledge that living your life on-line is not very healthy, mentally or physically.

You're addicted to that conversation, and it never stops and you know it.  That's why the phone always has to be nearby.  I lose track of mine, I leave it off all day long. And I do it on purpose sometimes, to break that idea.  That phone does not tell ME what to do, or how to be, or how often to pay attention to it.  When I sit down here with my laptop, it's very distracting but it's still under my control.  When I get sick of ranting on Fark, I shut it  down and go do something else.  You don't do that with your phone.  It is MEANT to be a constant reminder of what you are MISSING OUT on.

That's why it's always close by.  You can SAY that it's nothing more than an accessory, and has barely influenced your behavior.  But you'd be lying, because those data engineers have been working for years to make sure that your phone is way more than an accessory.  It's your life, it's as essential as your power of speech.  You're mute and helpless without it, and if you need a voice, your phone can direct you to whatever it is you need to buy to express your feelings.

Turn off your goddamned phone once in a while.  And put it away in public before I punch you in the face, and it would be WORTH IT.

No. Why else would the manufacturer have made it vibrate?

I'm amazed by the number of people who won't use DND "in case they miss something."
But if anyone calls me for bail after 10pm, they are so spending the night in jail.

Yep. I kept scrolling down, scanning rapidly, looking for definitive evidence from a serious study.

Welcome to Fark, etc.

Oh snap, really? I'd get outta bed for a friend, and I'm sure they'd do the same for me.

I prefer getting in bed for a friend.  Maybe two...

Nothing wrong with phone sex.  I mean, it hurts like hell, but I won't kink shame anyone that's into that.
