    London, March 5 : Chatting and texting on the cell phone accounted for about six million injuries in Britain last year, according to a new survey.

    Agreed...the strange part about these 6 million people hurt is that it doesn't include drivers, only people hurt while walking. ???

    Here is a link to an interesting site, it lets you search for all kinds of accidents that have occurred in the UK, some of the statistics are unbelievable, for example in 2001 nearly 800 people were hurt by a biscuit
    ??? or in 2002 over 67000 people had an accident while "shopping".

    I like the fact that there were 123 accidents in 2002 involving talcum powder - go figure

    As long as you don't start putting your makeup on at the same time, we can probably let this infraction slide.
