In the latest edition of "who wants to throw a cellphone," we'll toss out any baseball references and say that those frustrated with their cellphones (or wanting to flex those biceps) were invited to throw three phones as far as they could in an event recently at the Old Hamptonians Rugby Club in Britain. For a pocket-change amount of just £5 (a little under $10US), interested parties were allowed a threesome of tosses. The longest cellphone throw came in at over 95 meters, besting the world record-holding sub-95 meter throw during the 2005 Mobile Phone Throwing World Championships.
