What the fuck is up with that?  He is some sort of luddite or some shit?  I don't know.  What is your theory as to why he has not joined the rest of humanity?

No cell?  Does he have internet access?  Does he have electricity?  Does he have indoor plumbing?  Does he live in a house with a roof and not some wattle-and-daub thing made out of tree roots?

Fucking technophiles.  Those things will give you cancer, and shit.  If I didn't have to have one for work, I wouldn't carry one either.

Be strong, Matt.  Don't give in to the bullshit rat race that is modern society!

I'm with Matt! No cell phone needed.  Don't give into the hype.

My wife and I have no cell phone. We are probably the last people both in NC and Japan that don't have cell phones.

A monthly phone bill is like the price of a dinner at Vespa.

Everything but the roof. Roofers were supposed to come this week.

Mrs Snyder: We should get cell phones.
Mr. Snyder: We should not let rain spill on our bedspread.
Mrs. Snyder: Good point.

Here's my speculation regarding the real conversation:

Mrs. Snyder: We should get cell phones.
Mr. Snyder: Ooohhhh, pretty Dust Devils cover.
Mrs. Snyder: I really need a cell phone, to keep track of you at all hours of day and night, and to make sure you buy the right brand of personal products when you're wandering helpless in the grocery store.
Mr. Snyder: Can we play Dust Devils with my mom again? Honey?
Mrs. Snyder: Get away from me.

Best, Ron

I think Ron has a webcam set up in Matt's house.

This explains much. Ron, that night-time incident with the mayonaise jar? Let's just forget about it.

Hrumph.  Using a cell phone to meet the challenge of picking up the right brand of personal products is cheating.

Keith, if you pay me a stipend, I'll gladly hang around Snyder with my cellphone, and be his personal cellphone. "Ring ring! Ring ring! It's Keith dude. Ring ring!"

He doesn't keep weapons around, does he?

Do they have electricity out there yet?

About three weeks ago:

Thor: Awesome! Give me a ring when you land. Here's my cell phone number. What's yours, in case I need to get in touch with you?

Matt: ... I don't have a cell phone.

Thor: ... ::scratches head:: ... Watchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?!
