Texting while walking is apparently dangerous


Who knew?

Incredible finding!

In a bizarre study that confirmed the obvious, researchers have confirmed that texting while walking increases your changes of falling. I’m not making this up.

As I noted at the time, I’m looking forward to their next study investigating: ‘Whether falling asleep at the wheel increases the chances of a crash’

But jokes aside, there’s actually some useful lessons from this:

  • Yes, you can still get funding to research the bleeding obvious
  • Yes, you can still get news coverage when confirming the obvious

Use this as you will.
