    One of the reasons I stay away from my phone often - even with uncharged batteries

    Well it looks like I'm never gonna drop my cellphone into my lap while driving anymore. "Man begins 39 car pile-up after phone explodes his wang. More at 11."

    I read some article a while back where someone died from an exploding phone. He had it plugged in the outlet to charge and answered his call. Something happened with the battery and it took out his face and hand.

    It was the iPhone/iPod Touch hand grenade. Seriously. Look it up.

    I've had a lot of things explode in my face over the years. A Hot Pocket. A Sharpie marker. A regurgitating baby.

    But those pale in comparison to this.
