hypnosec (2231454) writes "In this year’s annual mobile-phone throwing contest held in Finland Ere Karjalainen has smashed the world record by throwing his phone 101.46 meters. The event, being held every year since 2000 in the town of Savonlinna, saw quite a few mobile-phone throwers participate. The 2nd position went to Jeremy Gallop, a South African who managed to throw his phone 94.67 metres. Finnish public television network YLE covered the Saturday event [Google translated]. Contest organizers are of the opinion that users can vent their anger on their phones and that this offers a unique opportunity to "pay back all the frustrations and disappointments caused by these modern equipments.""
