Lost (the Mobile Edition)

Here's something you didn't know about mobile phones:

Apparently, 855,000 handsets are flushed down the toilet every year in the UK only.


Amazing isn't it?

I think I'm going to get myself a new WinMo phone... In the sewer!

810,000 handsets are being left in the pub

315,000 are forgotten in a taxi or on a bus

116,000 are going through a spin cycle with the dirty laundry

And... listen to this one:

60,000 phones are chewed by dogs.


I wonder if they swallow it by accident while drinking from the toilets...


Oh wait, no! Stop it! Puyol! Don't eat that! It's vibrating! And leave the antenna out of it!


Note: the numbers are from 2007, but I assume they did not went down during 2008...
