seacoastonline: A female eighth-grade student was burned when this iPhone caught fire Friday in her back pocket while she was in a classroom at the Middle School of the Kennebunks.
iPhones are dangerous people xD watch out hahaha.
I have an iPhone... ooops.
This girl is on fire
lol I get the Alicia Keys song reference.
She took off her burning pants in class, that's pretty hot.
Hahaha well spotted xD
Who leaves their phone in their back pocket anyway?? What a dumb thing to do.
Sitting on your phone is just asking for trouble anyway.
Agreed haha it must be so uncomfortable...
Well she did buy an iPhone, that explains a lot ;) haha
Wish I had a smartphone in 8th grade.... You know what I was begging for in 8th grade? A CD player, which I didn't get until I got my own job in high school.....
We can all relate to this.
I gotta ask, what's the purpose of back pockets? Wouldn't it just be safer to put it inside your side pocket, where your arm swings when walking so no one else could grab it? Plus, they're bigger, so you can put more stuff in it. *note: I've never ever used my back pockets before.
Putting anything in back pockets makes it uncomfortable design flaws haha xD
I use my back pocket to put loose change (dollar bills, etc.) or pieces of paper I need to access quickly.
Receipts or paper, thats about it. New pants have "card" pockets low on the leg near the knee, those are probably the greatest clothing invention ever! I haven't used my wallet in a while because I keep my cards there, and money in the side pocket :P
3rd degree burns that need immediate medical attention? There's no app for that.
