I thought this riveting post on the New York Times Bits blog about the rise of the toilet texter deserved a graphic. Since their graphics department is no doubt busy with elections, I took the liberty. I am — the 91 percent.
I got the numbers straight from the Bits post, but you can download the full report from 11mark for all the demographics. You have to register though, and I didn’t want to be the guy who creates an online account to just read a report on what people do while they make dooty. I have standards.
I am reading this on the toilet.
this hilarious… yet a bit worrying
This might be why cell phone makers profit so much from phones dropped into toilets. I’m one of the 9% because I’m one of the 99% and can’t afford to replace my smartphone before a discount is available!
“One in six mobile phones in the UK is contaminated with fecal bacteria, researchers found”. Oups.
This post is hilarious.
We call it “pooptexting” in our household.
Just say no to FaceTime.
And this is part of why I think video call products like Facetime will never take off big time. Toilet or not, people do things while on the phone that they don’t want the people on the other end to know about.
Pretty much the same in Brazil. And I learned to do it, when working for a Telecom company – internal corporate habit. #believeitornot #weirdo
PS: never dropped my cellphones into the toilet. :P
Gives new meaning to the term “data dump”….
