Swallowing Mobile Phones May Be Considered Harmful

from the just-saying dept

While we know that the holidays are supposed to be a peaceful time to spend with family and friends, it can also be quite stressful for many people and fights with loved ones are bound to break out here and there. Now, as a holiday suggestion, we’re going to recommend that should your fight with your significant other get serious, that you not swallow his or her mobile phone in an attempt to keep said significant other from leaving. Unfortunately, this advice comes a bit too late for a woman in Missouri who tried to swallow her boyfriend’s phone to prevent him from leaving after an argument. The event resulted in her being rushed to the hospital with difficulty breathing. No word on whether or not the boyfriend actually left (or if he got the phone back). Update: Later police reports are saying that the phone swallowing may not have been voluntary — though the rest of the details have not been explained.

No Subject Given

That’s not exactly how I heard it went down. No pun intended. Local news reported that the Blue Springs couple (suburb of Kansas City) was arguing over calls the girlfriend had received. The boyfriend tried to get the phone from her to review said calls and she swallowed her own phone getting it lodged in her throat, because the boyfriend reportedly called police from his own phone.

Here is a much more exciting topic for those who don’t yet merge with technology quite the way some others do… Yikes!!

Plainly, RICHO is pushing the PDF format they are the largest manufacturer of the ps printing devices in the world. Post Script is not a value I want crossing my domain in the way of VR and the MATRIX EVOlution… It’s code is actually very laden with open holes in the binding area.
