Girl Almost Dies Saving iPod

We all like our gadgets. Still, even though we can't imagine our morning commute without our trusty MP3 player, there's no way we're risking our lives for it. Then again, we're not 16-years old.

A Tampa teenage girl was almost killed on Tuesday when she tried to save her beloved iPod from certain doom. While crossing the street, she noticed she had dropped her iPod Nano in the road. Instead of saying a quiet prayer for the health of her musical companion, she blindly rushed into oncoming traffic -- this, we imagine, greatly dissatisfied the driver of the pickup truck driver that subsequently plowed into her, leaving her with a broken leg and untold damage to the truck.

So remember kids/adults: An iPod is replaceable, even in this economy. If you have to... just let it go. [From:Twirlit]
