Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts.

Living in a world where everyone owns a smartphone has brought with it a new set of risks that we have to live with every day. For example, someone could steal your phone and get all of your personal data along with it. Dropping your phone could easily cost you $1,000 in repair fees. There have even been people who have died after absentmindedly walking into the street while sending a text.

But this guy encountered a risk that I guarantee you've never thought about. He somehow managed to swallow his phone. I know that sounds slightly insane, but it actually happened. There's even a video to prove it.

That might be one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen. His insurance had better cover water damage. That's all I'm saying.
