They were covering this on the local news channel, and I thought it was pretty funny:

Damn, I must admit I never really took those shits seriously either. I thought it was like highly unlikely for something to happen if you used a cell phone at a gas station.

The static ignited and set fire causing his arm to catch fire? Was he prosecuted for possesing a firearm?

Actually it could also be considered an explosive detonator. That means strictly illegal weaponry...

Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!

That's just stupid, you're just stupid, and I take back every hug I ever gave you!

It should be a law that every person over 16 hast to have a cell phone.

I know they are called mobiles, but why, when you get a call do you walk around? Can no-one answer a mobile without moving about?

I never heard anyone call a cell phone a mobile, however I would assume some might because it's a mobile phone, meaning you can take it with you to most places and it will work.

In England cell phones are "mobiles", no one ever calls them cell phones, it's always a mobile

Of course, driving+cel = WRONG

But there's nothing like one of these babies to set up a gathering with your friends in 30 seconds.

Um, if you're gonna have a gathering, wouldn't it be at your house. In that case, using a cell phone would be retarded.

Also, I hate that fact that most of them don't have proper reciever/earpiece distance anymore. The reciever is usualy lying on my cheek while the earpiece is where its supposed to be. WTF am I supposed to do?

"The driver sustained some fist degree burns on his hand..."


That's a direct quote...Is this because of the firearm pun?

I'll be damned if I ever own one of those things. Shit I never answer my phone here at home, why would I want a phone I can take with me where ever I go just to not answer it, either? I hate phones all together. Then again, I'm extremely anti-social. That's why i love forums, I say what I want to say, when I want to say it. :)
