Wed, 18:40: just-shower-thoughts: Cell phones have become like portable refrigerators; we check them every five minutes... https://t.co/fcbLAQmdmj

Not me. I'll check it if it rings, or if I want to know the time.

And if I've been to the store or something without it, I'll check it when I get back to see if anything came in while I was out. Otherwise, what's to check?

Well neither do I, but then, neither of us has a smartphone.

Unless I had unlimited data, my uses for a smart phone would be *really* limited.

Even with my first phone that'd act as a modem for my old Velo, I didn't use the ability much.

Wifi makes more sense on a lot of levels. Which reminds me I gotta set up that proxy stuff on my laptops...

There are smart phones with wifi. Amy has one.

That's practically part of the *definition* of "smartphone". With the data rates most carriers charge, you've either got way too much money or way too few brains to use the G3(?) for data.

3G. Or 4G, in some cases. But yeah, I agree, the 3 and 4 G data rates are ridiculously expensive.

Thu, 03:20: help-me-yes: white people talking about other ethnicities be like white people talking about themselves be... https://t.co/iDerST0uNh

Greeks are most definitely "white". To use the old classifications, they aren't negroid, they aren't mongoloid (yes, that was a racial description and did in fact cause confusion with the term used for certain birth defects), They aren't Amerind, and they aren't "bushmanoid" (can't recall the proper term,. but African bushmen are sufficiently different from the rest of the native african types to get their own classification).

Greeks are "Caucasian"/"Caucasoid".

And those classifications were only slightly based on skin color. There actually *are (minor) skeletal differences, as well as things like hair and various other body features.

And there's even some genetic basis. Things like blood types and some other genes. Researchers are trying to document that sort of thing a *lot* because it's one of the ways of tracing migrations.

It gets harder due to all the interbreeding. Especially in the US.

Greeks are Mediterranean people of color. Classifying them as white was probably done because Western Civilization wanted to take credit for them. They do the exact same thing with the ancient Egyptians, even though the ancient Egyptians were black.

They are darker skinned. So are *most* folks on the north side of the mediterranean.But check other factors.

To the extent that legit science recognizes "races" they are "white"

Also note that they aren't *treated* like PoC.
