Padded Lamp Posts Tested in London to Prevent Cell Phone Texting Injuries

Trend Watch: Walking, Texting, and Running into Sh*t

The following story was yesterday's headline of the day, but this live-action news coverage is too good to pass up. Injuries caused by walking while texting are on the rise and a London charity has decided to do something about it. That is, they're padding lamp posts located along the "most dangerous" texting streets. The story is absurd, but the highly informative footage of peeps "accidentally" walking into street fixtures and poles really amps the entertainment value here. Hard-hitting news, eh?

Maybe they should just tell people to look where they're going like my mother did and they would never do it again after hearing her voice a couple times. Maybe I should ask my mother to help with the crisis.

This is absurd, so I find it very appropriate that one of the interviewees used the phrase "higgledy piggledly." I should say that more often.
