    I can now tell you they are not as good as flasks in your top pocket as heart protection!!!Attachment 128972

    That's one less iPhone in the wild!

    Company went to iPhone, from giving people a choice of android and apple - and the folk that had androids all say iPhone they are not a business phone, less productive and generally just a crap experience.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    We think alike.
    I had a shitty laptop and after a good talking to it still refused to give me ant decent information. So off to the firing squad.
    Quite satisfying plinking away . It had the last laugh though. Theres quite a lot of glass and stuff that scattered about that I had to clean up.

    Many years back when i was a foreman for a construction company i had given couple young guys many many warnings about texing at work. It was out of control and had said i catch you again am going to smash that phone. Had enough one day and when he put his phone down i went past with the nail gun and that was the end of that. It put a stop to it straight away

    Funny, bit of a waste but, me thinks some smart tech could of fixed it up ?

    I was at a Bucks Do in Limpopo SA, crazy affair there they are, Shooting Drinking Games (all would go to jail here) Buck gets shot with Paint Balls Point blank when running in to claim money stuck in the sand in a small arena, has a tiny shield for his nuts, with very little in the way of cloths on, most go to hospital next day (or that day) !

    One of the Games involved shotguns with a handy cap of Semi 12ga big mag - Double 20ga - Single 410 type of deal, roll of the dice type draw & scull shooters/drinks when targets are missed !

    Any way one guy has a CAT phone & it has been pissing him off, so it gets thrown in the air & a few guys shoot it, gets whacked pretty good by a lot of pellets, he picks it up shows us the damage & then the Fucker rings & he answers it lol
