    Storm, a presenter on Jeremy Vine tv show, called pedestrians using their phones without looking where they are walking 'phone zombies' and she says she stands still to allow them to walk into her. Do people agree this is the best course of action?

    I don't know if it's the best thing to do, it seems kind of silly actually. But phone zombies seems an apt term as I saw someone today cycling with his elbows on his handlebars and his phone in his hands, reading something. Guess he could be called a bicycle zombie.

    Then the zombie apocalypse is real, and been right in front of our face all this time. Interesting.

    Best to just bludgeon or shoot them in the head to avoid getting bitten.

    Love,
