OK, so I get this email from my friend Sarah and it was too funny not to share:
19% of smart phones get dropped down the toilet; only a brave few basejump to their rocky death
Illegal basejumper fatally injured on Saturday: declared deceased on Monday
Yosemite Valley, Lower Cathedral Spire- Purple Blackberry Curve 8340 jumped out of climber's summit pack, plummeting 150' to a rocky landing. Ms. Curve was not instantly killed, and initially appeared to be in stable condition, despite loss of vital component: back-of-phone. On Monday October 24, 2011 at 2:48pm Ms. Curve suddenly became non-responsive, succumbing to her fatal injuries.
Ms. Curve is survived by close friends: I-pod Nano IV, sailcloth wallet, Matrix car keys and Kleen Kanteen. She will be remembered for dutifully coming when called for defying her low bandwidth -- nearly regularly providing access to the Verizon G3 network.
Following a 24-hr period of mourning, Ms. Curve was replaced by a Droid. Sadly, she will not be missed.
Friends are encouraged to send their respects via email to xxxxxxxx; please include your phone number.
