Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Imagine if cell phones had always been part of life!

History, Rewritten

by Rachelle Allen

The Phenomenon of Cell Phones Contest Winner 
Oh, how different this world would be
If cell phones existed throughout History!

"One if by land; two if by sea"?
Please! You can stream it live
On your iPhone tv!

And how 'bout those tribes in the desert:
So lost!
Get a GPS app, Dudes. Don't you know there's no cost?

No "Conspiracy Theories" on who shot our leaders;
All assassins would promptly be seen,
Thanks to Tweeters!

Of course, Norman Rockwell might suffer the most;
Pics of farmers on Smart Phones
Might not sell to The Post.

But if Henry the Eighth had a Tumblr account,
Far, FAR more wives' heads
Would be rolling about!

The Phenomenon of Cell Phones
Contest Winner


It's not just current times that are affected by this technology.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
