Out of all the things you should almost never do, it's pulling that red cord.
What Would Happen If
You've just gotten something nice to eat. And, well, would you look at that, a fly is now on it. Should you just eat it?
Maybe you would be sad. Maybe you would be happy. It's hard to say. What we do know is that your phone will definitely die.
