And 13% of people have walked into something like a pole or a wall because they were staring down at their phone.
Of course, we also have plenty of dumb injuries that AREN’T caused by our phones . . .
35% have tripped over a pet.
28% have accidentally hammered their fingers instead of a nail.

A Marine corporal named Jarrod Haschert made one of those YouTube videos, asking UFC women’s champ RONDA ROUSEY to the Marine Corps Ball in North Carolina on December 11th.
He said, quote, “You are my celebrity crush, like, I love everything you do and I think you are a phenomenal person, which is why it would be my honor to take you to the Marine Corps Ball . . . You would truly be making my dreams come true.”
Well, somebody’s dreams are about to come true, because Ronda said YES. She told TMZ that she doesn’t know how to work out the details, but, quote, “I’ll totally go . . . It is a yes.”
She also joked that Corporal Haschert had to find dates for her three friends, who were there with her.
Check out six tricks to help you if you have a SNORING problem . . .
- Sing along to the radio. A study in 2013 found that people who sing a lot are less likely to snore, because it strengthens your throat muscles.
- Sew a tennis ball into the back of a t-shirt. Sleeping on a tennis ball won’t do anything, but the point is you WON’T sleep on it. You’re just much more likely to snore if you’re on your back. And the tennis ball forces you to sleep on your side instead.
- Do some tongue aerobics. Just stick your tongue out and try to touch your chin . . . then try to touch your nose . . . then repeat it.
- Put a big book under your mattress. If it’s under your head, it forces you to sit up a little, which can stop you from snoring. You can also do it with an extra pillow, but there’s a chance you’ll toss it off your bed in the middle of the night.
- Clean your bedroom. Dust and other allergens can stuff you up at night, so you have to breathe through your mouth, and you’re more likely to snore.
- Wear compression socks. It can help with sleep apnea, because it prevents fluid from building up in your lower legs during the day. A recent study found that when you lie down, that fluid can shift to your neck area, and make you snore.
