GL: << My wife told me of a news story that in one EU country (Denmark?)
they
have decided that since so many people will be texting while driving anyways,
it will now be a required task on the diving test. >>
LH: << Yes, but texting while diving can be particularly dangerous, to the
phone as well as the diver. >>

WB: Reminds me there oughta be a law against **dunk diving**. (I.e.,
text-driving while trying to retrieve part of a doughnut from a hot coffee
cup. As GL indicates, such a law should apply to dunking Danishes while
texting, as well. Join Mothers Against Dunk Divers ... today!)
