So many people have already dropped their iPhone 6 in the toilet

Apple’s iPhone 6, just two days old, set a company record with upwards of 4 million pre-orders—though some early birds are simply flushing money down the toilet.

We all had a good laugh at the Australian teen who dropped his new iPhone on live TV, but that’s nothing compared to the ignominy of having lost it to the commode. Such an accident confirms the dirty truth we try not to think about: that everyone surfs the Web while shitting.

These reports more or less confirmed various predictions.

Other people seem to be dropping old phones in the toilet on purpose, just so they’ll have an excuse to shell out a few hundred bucks for a newer model.

Of course, there’s more than one way to break your fabulous status symbol. 

Oh, well—it’s about time to line up for the iPhone 7 anyway.
