Headline shock: METRO runs out of news! 

Today's front-page story in the Metro (London's free daily newspaper) was that a study has concluded that it is dangerous to use mobile phones and iPods outdoors during thunderstorms.

Amazing!

No, I don't think that it's amazing that it is dangerous to hold metal things to your ear while lightning is crashing down around you. That should be obvious to anyone. It's a stupid thing to do.

No, I think it's amazing that, firstly, someone actually went to the trouble and expense of researching this and, secondly, it's amazing that the editorial team thought that it was worthy front-page news.

Monday's headline: Breathing is good for you!
