Cell-ibacy? not likely

One of the things I enjoy most about my job is reading the (sometimes quite bizarre) world briefs. One last week mentioned something along the lines of a baby pound in Japan: you drop off your baby if you don’t feel like you can take care of it and somehow the baby gets placed into a loving home.

Tonight I came across this fascinating little blurb:

In England, young Britons would rather give up sex than live without their cell phones, according to a survey. One in three people would not sacrifice their cell phone for one million pounds or more, with women leading the way on those most likely to refuse, the survey by the Carphone Warehouse and the London School of Economics found.–from wire reports

Coming straight from a college town that’s all about getting laid–and texting around to find willing partners (aka booty calls)–I can’t fathom people in my age range willing to part with either facet of society.

I mean, damn. That really made me think.

What did we do before cell phones? And how much have condom sales dropped since the advent of our portable pals?
