Remember the old cartoons where people would walk right off a cliff, spin their feet and drop? Yeah, humanity is like that when it comes to texting. Too many people are walking into poles, cars, or on this case, walking off a cliff.
The moral of this story is to pay attention to the world around you and not be so absorbed in your smartphone that you die(Or very badly hurt). Apparently, a woman was so busy texting on her handset, that while she tried to discard her cigarette butt in Kodiak, Alaska at a nearby cliff, she lost her balance and bearings and slipped on the wet grass in her garden and fell down.
She ended up just a few feet away from the tide and suffered multiple injuries. Her recovery is well underway, and she is lucky to be alive.
