I'm just not a douchebag that's attached to gadgets I don't need. Even cell phones, the vast majority of people don't even need one, yet they can't stop walking around yammering away and texting on them for no real reason at all. This is just another useless device for assholes. I can hardly wait to see when it starts killing all these idiots who are going to be distracted walking into traffic, etc. from wearing those stupid things. People that fill the emptiness in their life with needless toys are just sad.

So you want to see people wearing these get killed - who's the asshole here? I realise you don't mean this literally but even figuratively, that's bullshit.

People yammer away and text a lot because they want to. Because they're communicating with friends and loved ones - the people who perhaps make their life fulfilled. Even if they're just playing games or reading web pages, so? Why is this a problem for you? In what way is people doing what they want to do with what they want to use a bad thing? The vast majority of people do not need cell phones, but they want one and if they can afford it, why not?

Do you not do anything that's not needed? Since you're posting here, I'm pretty sure you do - with all due respect to Blue, this site isn't needed. It's a hobby (for us, not Blue), we play games and we read about games because we like it. I also play games or text friends because I like it and ultimately yes, it's a needless toy, but I like it and that's no one's business but mine.

You sound like the sort of douche bag poser you are talking about, except your particular brand of posing is to think you're too cool to use a gadget.

You are presumably an adult, if you can easily afford $1500, yet you're posting on a website about games - is that not just as much filling your life with needless toys?
