    Right. So a spirited and almost divisive discussion came up and I need to poll the TB masses for an incomplete and unreliable public sampling.

    Do you use your phone when using the toilet?

    To clarify the poll options, by video I don't mean just watching a video, I mean video chat....like Facetime, or Google video chat, or Tango, etc.

    Needs a poll.

    I dont use my phone for phone purposes when using the toilet, but Im not above knocking out some pigs while I drop the kids off at the pool.

    Dont talk to anyone but all else is fair game.
  4. I am on the toilet browsing TB on my phone right now, but I would never talk to anyone while dropping a weight class.

  5. I'll text, chat, surf, read my e-mails, post to talkbass, etc. but no phone or video.

    If I call and you're in the toilet please let it go to voicemail. It's not that important
  7. Reading. At "my" toilet I'll take only calls. Anything other than that and texting is not happeninh

    So much so that I've dropped it into the toilet at least twice and had to enact my insurance.

    No way I'm touching my phone while in the bathroom for any reason. I'll touch it after washing up. This is also the reason why I avoid using other peoples phones.

    I'm sure some of the most legendary drunk dials occur while folks are at The John.

    I'm pushing, I'm pushing...jeez. Can't rush these things, you might pop an o-ring, drop a lung.

    Oh, and no. It can wait. Which is why I have a magazine rack in there.

    Yep. I completed 3 Stars on all levels of Death Star whilst on the throne.

    Like hover though, the khazee is one of the last places known to man where I can thumb through a good bit of old-fashioned proper magazines. It's also where I can do crosswords in peace.

    People have become way too obsessed with their mobile devices.

    I don't talk or do any kind of video chatting (who the **** does that???), but I will surf the net and text.
