A cocktail bar owner has installed a Faraday cage in his walls to prevent mobile phone signals entering the building.

Steve Tyler of the Gin Tub, in Hove, East Sussex, is hoping customers will be encouraged to talk to each other rather than looking at their screens.

He has installed metal mesh in the walls and ceiling of the bar which absorbs and redistributes the electromagnetic signals from phones and wireless devices to prevents them entering the interior of the building.

Why you hating on millennials, Bro?

    Frittering away the moments of your life on a phone is probably one of the least destructive, and getting them to a point of being comfortable in their own skin is a large undertaking.

    Just play this everywhere to remind these people that they're just: [youtube.com]

    Ticking away the moments that make the moments that make up a dull day
    Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown
    Waiting for for someone or something to show you the way

    Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain
    But you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today

    And then one day you find, ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again

    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older
    shorter of breath and one day closer to death

    Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
    Plans that wither come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines

    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over
    Thought I'd something more to say

    Home, Home again
    I like to be here when I can

    When I come home cold and tired, it's good to warm my bones beside the fire

    Far away across the field, the tolling of the iron bell, calls the faithful to their knees
    To hear the softly spoken magic spell

    If nothing else, the alarm clock sounds might jolt them out of their handheld device induced haze.

    Besides, those millenials listen to crappy, crappy music.

    Oh please, Pink Floyd lyrics?
    Why that's nothing compared to the artistic styling Nicki Minaj:

    If you cute then the crew can roll
    If you sexy eat my coo-coo raw
    Put ya cape on, you a super hoe
    2012, I'm at the superbowl

    Stupid hoes is my enemy
    Stupid hoes is so whack
    Stupid hoe shoulda befriended me
    Then she coulda probably came back

    Stupid hoes is my enemy
    Stupid hoes is so whack
    Stupid hoe shoulda befriended me
    Then she coulda probably came back

    You're a stupid hoe
    You're a stupid hoe
    You're a stupid hoe

    And I ain't hit that note,
    But, fuck you stupid hoe
    Yeah, fuck you stupid hoe
    I said fuck a stupid hoe,
    Yeah, fuck a stupid hoe
    I said fuck a stupid hoe,
    Yeah, fuck a stupid hoe
    I said fuck a stupid hoe
    Yeah, fuck a stupid hoe

    Seriously though, I nearly flubbed typing the 'artistic styling' line due to laughing so hard I couldn't type.
    If you truly want NSFE....this should be near the top. It make BS* totally listenable in comparison!!!

    I miss lyrics with meaning.......
