Mobile: Pay Attention When You're Walking While Using Your Smartphone. You Might Get Bitten by Snakes
I admit it. I am guilty at times for cross the road without properly looking for traffic that might splatter me all over the road. I mean I do look before I cross but I really ought to pay more attention. So, there. I’m guilty of using my smartphone while walking.
It’s not a crime yet. Not like in some states where if you’re driving and using the phone at the same time, you could get you a ticket from your friendly neighborhood patrol officer.
However, this LA Times story really takes the cake. A teen trying to find a signal for his cell walks right into a rattlesnake nest and gets bit multiple times.
I do pay attention to the occasional poop that people’s dogs leave behind. But I guess I now have to look out for snakes.
This blows…but what are the chances I’ll be in the wilderness, not wearing boots, looking for cell signals.
