    This Is The One Reason We Should All Get Rid Of Our Smartphones

    Our fingers are going to fall off.

    Hello, it's me. I was wondering if you'd like to discuss why having a cell phone in the 21st century may actually be terrible?

    Sure, there are a ton of great things about cellular devices: We can stay connected to family and friends...

    ...and having a cell phone almost makes computers obsolete —you can stream movies and whatnot right in the palm of your hand.

    However, there is one downside to having a cell phone. Do I have your attention? Great.

    We hold our phones so much that we're literally creating dents in our pinky finger.

    Apparently a good bit of people use their pinky finger as way to hold their phone when it's in hand.

    We did it to ourselves. Maybe we deserve it?

    No, you aren't alone.

    We can do better, fellow humans.

    What's happening to our phalanges?

    Note: It's really unclear if this was due to a phone indentation, but it could've been.

    Let's all try to preserve our pinky fingers for as long as possible this year.
