Would You Rather Give Up Sex, Money Or Your Cell Phone?

Sure, it seems like a wacky question, but a recent survey shows that Young Britons would rather give up sex than live without their cell phones.

According to Reuters, one in three people would not sacrifice their cell phone for one million pounds (that's equivalent to about $1.9 million USD). Women were most likely to refuse the lump sum in exchange for the cells, while folks in the 16 and 24 age bracket would rather give up alcohol, chocolate, sex, tea, or coffee than live without their mobile phone for a month.

While the survey results both confuse and upset me, I have to ask: What would you give up for in order to keep your cell phone?

::thinks:: Wouldn't it be smart to give up your cell phone for money? Then you can BUY ANOTHER cell phone. Hmm. How ingenious!

I don't need a cell phone and I never will, I think they're very overrated so I would not give up anything for a stupid cell phone.

for all the people who would give up their cell phone for money, do it. your phone costs money, so therefor if you don't have one, you have more money. strange how that works....

I carry my cell phone all the time & it rarely rings. Of course as soon as I forget it at home, I have like 16 messages. I'd definitely give it up for money, I'm not a big phone user anyway.

I'd totally give up my cell phone. Half the time I hate having it. I hate text messaging, and I hate being constantly accessible. I turn it off if I'm out with someone, I turn it off when I sleep, I turn it off while I'm at work...and plus it's another bill I could totally live without.

A lot of things come before my cell phone. I may use it as a watch, maybe even a calendar, or an address book, or a tip calculator, but I have backups for those things with the exception of the tip calculator. I'm so bad on the phone anyway!

i am so glad to see that most people didnt say they would give up all kinds of real fun things for cell phones. we were all fine in the 80s and before without them. plus who needs a phone if they are giving up sex and booze?!
