Well, not technically.

But after yesterday there seems to be a new addition to the ranks of Darwin Award Recipients.

A girl, 19, was killed yesterday in New York City, after she jumped onto the subway tracks to retrieve her cellular phone, which she had mistakenly dropped. Said girl was then hit by an oncoming train.

What kind of idiot would do something like that? Seriously.

At first I thought it was just a tiny platform she dropped it down. Then I read 5 foot. Blimey, she did seem a bit stupid. She should have at least asked one of the workers there to make sure it was safe or something. You see, that's one of the reason's I don't have a mobile. Granted, it's not the major one but it's one of them.

Huh?

Why? in case you drop it on a rail track?

Better not have a purse/wallet/hand bag/cigarettes/football etc etc either
