    Devil's advocate--is this much different than, you know, the standard "shit while reading a magazine or newspaper"?

    I ask because I don't know anything about magazines and newspapers, but I've learned from a sitcom or two that people do that sort of thing.

    Plenty of states where it's illegal now ... plus this link's even better, a fun map!

    As for using the cell in the bathroom ... I'm with you, ick.

    I just don't get why people are permanently attached to their cell phones period. Every time I turn around someone is fondling a cell phone like they've found the holy grail. Does no-one actually take in their surroundings anymore and be fully present in the moment? Is a msg on twitter so important that you should exclude everything else. I must be a special case because I see no point in being on a social networking site....aka gossip site, and no point in using my phone unless someone's calling me or I'm doing my banking. I can't even remember the last time I sent a txt let alone wandered through the streets totally consumed with the contents of my phone.

    Texting while driving is pretty crazy, and illegal here in Japan. I have never seen anyone talking or texting in the toilet, out drinking maybe. Can't remember.

    Maybe they should be.
    It's just weird to me.
    For years I've been shocked when people use a public restroom (for whatever reason) and don't wash their hands as they leave.
    This just compounds an already existing problem, IMHO.



    OK, let's simplify my case.
    The last place I want to be is in a public restroom, taking a dump, and reading a sweet text message from my beautiful wife.
    There's a better place for the message to be read, like at my desk, or as I take a 15 minute walk around my company's campus.
    Again, this is my preference.
