More Pocket Solutions
This image provided by the Direction of Penal Centers of El Salvador shows an x-ray taken of one of four prisoners at a maximum security Salvadoran prison in Zacatecoluca, 35 miles southeast of the capital of El Salvador.
Who would have thought that my suggestion of compulsory universal pyjama wearing would cause SO much furore! It was meant to be helpful, people! I am only concerned with minimising the number of spider-related fatalities. But to hear people carry on, you’d think that I was suggesting over-turning civilization.* One of people’s biggest worries seems to be; what are they meant to do with their phones if they have no pockets?
I could think of a few solutions… taping them to your heads, being just one of them. But it is prisoners in Zacatecoluca who have really demonstrated that there’s no problem that a little bit of initiative, and Vaseline, can’t solve.
Last week officials at the prison found four mobile-phones, nine sim-cards and a recharger distributed between the *body cavities* of four inmates, all of whom are members of the Mara Salvatrucha gang.
The beauty of this storage and transport solution is that it’s so cheap and simple. And it’s what I most often feel like telling people to do with their phones.

Thanks Mr S for drawing this innovative mobile solution to my attention >>
* It's not as if they aren't prepared to completely give up their civil rights at the mere mention of Terry Rism. Whoever he is...?
