You're talking on your phone while you're in line -- or in the restaurant -- or on the street. You're holding up traffic. You're ignoring people. Aren't you? Admit it. Well, at least you know yourself. Excuse me/Man/Would you/Please/Put your/Phone down? NICE! Check out the rap video, via @FogAndSmog. FogAndSmog.

The snake gets bigger and, while I'm playing it, not coincidentally so does my email box! Here’s a short video showing the game in action. Sure, it’s old school – but sometimes those are the most fun games, for me anyway.
