Would you turn off your mobile phone for a discount ?
Thought for the day…” Just because nobody complains does not mean that all parachutes are perfect” (Benny Hill).
Spotted an interesting story in the news about an Italian priest who had installed electronics in his church to jam the signals to mobile telephones. Signs in the church asking people to switch off their telephones had not worked, so the priest took things a stage further and installed the jamming device. Local shopkeepers have been complaining that the phone-jammer is so powerful that it is affecting electronics in their shops as well. That story reminds me of the story about the Israeli restaurant owner near Jerusalem who offered diners a 50% discount off their bills if they would switch off their mobile phones during their meal. His idea was to encourage people to be social with each other again, rather than being glued to the screens of their mobile telephones. Other restaurants in the USA have followed the idea, some even offering discounts to diners who give up ALL electronics for the duration of their meal.
No signs of any mobile phones in today’s photo, which comes from southern Oman. Both photos taken with the Panasonic camera.
And another photo from the archives… market colour in Mozambique.
