    The way people walk around these days staring at their smart phones, I am surprised there are not many, many more accidents.

    People who stare at their smart phones and walk into incoming traffic (seen it in Manhattan) deserve to be out of the gene pool....IMHO.

    I watched a girl walk diagonally through an intersection this week staring at her phone, and she only looked up when a car passed so close the noise/air movement startled her.

    This! There is a certain Darwinian design to this behavior and I am becoming more convinced, the design is actually intelligent. Obsessed and fixated people staring at the lights, letters and colors on a small mobile device causing them to suspend all conscious awareness of surroundings resulting in their falling down stairs, into garbage cans, fountains, walking into streets filled with oncoming traffic. What does this say about them...us?
