Computer Mice Can Cause Cancer: Click Here To Find Out More
« on: November 04, 2015, 03:20:20 am »
So it looks like not only red meat, bananas, margarine and apples can cause cancer now. A recent study led to the conclusion that computer mouses can lead to cancer as well and that they are even more dangerous than the aforementioned food.

The reason why computer mouses can cause cancer is because when you use them, you are at higher risk of finding websites about hard drugs and cigarette, images depicting their use and thus, make you at higher risk of being inclined to try those drugs. Computer mouses also reportedly hurt the world's economy severely, because they also lets you find contraband cigarettes dealers more easily, meaning less taxes for governments and more convenience stores closures, while also increasing risks of cancer by making it easier to get hooked to cigarettes. The higher cancer rate also hurts the economy due to increased costs of health care.

By using a keyboard and no mouse, risks of cancer are reduced for younger people, because it takes them longer to access websites that way, unlike baby-boomers, who first used computers back when mouses were not mainstream.

Computer mouses are also a source of seizures: Several hundreds people who used a mouse suffered from a seizure after watching a Youtube video of the banned Pokémon Episode 38 despite warnings.

Have you even thought about why touch-screen phones are so popular these days?

The argument could also be made that they will navigate to anti-drug sites as well.

Those people who use a tiling window manager such as i3 on Linux. Or even, don't even use a GUI. Screw graphic user interfaces, command-line interfaces are the future.

Command line interfaces are the past, pretty sure. Real men flip switches to input their code.

Back in the days, when a device stopped working properly, we use hit it with our hand very hard and it fixed it. Very common back in the 70's with old TVs :P


Also the reason I made this topic was to make fun at sensationalist news medias for using clickbait titles and overhyping studies about foods that cause cancer, especially that recent study about red and processed meat and making it like everything will kill you overnight. :P

And it's not just with such stories: Before halloween there was a news report here about an asteroid being headed towards earth and the way the intro and title was worded sounded like it was gonna hit us, when in fact it was just a fly by.
