when i was in the fledgeling XR group in san diego (yeah, I know) i brought up that the 5G rollout was going to destroy a lot of fairly old trees in the area and INSTANTLY got a bunch of "yeah and the EVIL DEATH RAYS" back from these 40 yr olds
things that are bad about many 5G rollouts:

- that spectrum could be WAY better used for other stuff
- it's a totally pointless technology
