Louis C.K. tells Conan about why his kids don’t have cell phones. Sure, it’s funny, but he makes a good point. I hate that I sometimes find myself guilty of the very thing he talks about, which is essentially a Pavlovian addiction to button-pushing. The cell phone has become the adult version of the security blanket.

Sir, please put down the cell phone and step away slowly. It’s going to be alright. You’re going to be okay.
