Your phone can kill you

Ever think that spending too much time on your cell phone might be taking years off of your life? It looks like there may be some credence to that theory, though not in the way you might expect. An exploding Motorola handset killed a welder from China named Xiao Jinpeng. The phone combusted during a spell of incredibly high temperatures in an Ore Dressing Plant in Gansu’s Jinta County.  The phone exploded, piercing Jinpeng in the heart.  And we thought drunk messages to your ex-girlfriend were bad. So sad.
