    I saw a documentary about John the Baptist in which they said that there are five species of locusts in Israel and three of them are kosher.
    I wonder how that was decided.

    But Martin Cooper had the pleasure of calling Bell Labs to rub in the fact that he had created the cell phone before them.

    Cooper has invented something that is such an annoyance, he was overpaid.

    6500 cartons @ 12 eggs/carton = 78,000 eggs! Their cholesterol levels must have been higher than their plane will ever fly!

    I think the conch shell was the first cell phone.

    He should have gotten a bonus on the order of what his lard ass bosses get for doing nothing.

    He should be given a medal. Cell phones are very important.

    Standard procedure at Motorola, Harris and many others -
    $1 for your inventions.
    Reminds me of a Dilbert cartoon, boss giving lady a performance review:
    “You met expectations, you get a 3% raise.”
    “Met expectations? My patents made the company millions!”
    “Well, we expected that!”
    “And I donated bone marrow to our best customer – twice!”
    “We noted that under attendance problems!”
    Did anyone preserve that strip?

    Luddite. Cellphones probably save as many lives as they take.

    Thank you Martin Cooper..I was 20 miles out in the desert and my ATV quit(one time occurrence)..I climbed up on a small hill and phoned my brother to come get me..The search and rescue chopper would probably have found my bones eaten by coyotes 6 months later.

    The kosher locusts were blessed by a rabbi. They must be eaten only from meat dishes. If you eat ‘em from dairy dishes or wash ’em down with milk, you’re gonna go to hell. Amen

    Martin Cooper led the team that developed the cell phone for Motorola. He did not invent the cell phone.
