    A little did you know:

    " Think you can text pretty fast? Try typing this 160-character sentence: "The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human." A 16-year-old Singaporean student, Ang Chuang Yang, did it in 41.52 seconds, using a standard phone keypad. That's a new world record, beating the previous record of 42.22 seconds set earlier this year. Clearly, having nimble fingers helps, as does lots of practice -- but Ang also recommends using a phone with large keys on its dial pad. "

    Why is it that they walk reasonably straight but as soon as they answer the phone they start walking like a drunken sailor in wanchai?
    I'd also leave them to their own devices and if they get themselves injured or killed, oh well.

    On their phone they no longer pay attention to what's in front and they start to wander. It's easier to walk a straight line if you keep your head and focus up.
