Teens in circle holding smart mobile phones - Multicultural young people using cellphones outside - Teenagers addicted to new technology concept

Well, throwing your phone out of anger might get you a prize in Finland !! In 2000, it became a sport over there and they set a world record too. A guy named Dries Feremans set it by throwing a cell phone 110 meters (which comes out to be about 360 feet.)

 

The phones are supplied by the sponsors and you get to pick what phone you want to throw. During the sport, you get judged on throwing distance and technique. Now the person throwing the phone has some rules to follow with staying in the throwing area and if they step out of that area the throw will be no pun intended but thrown out.

This sport does let men or women do this and even kids can play at 12 and over. Now when the jury comes in with the final say you can not protest it all. Most of the people who compete do the traditional over-the-shoulder throw and whoever throws the furthest is the winner.

It does have a team of 3 so I say we get a Rat team together and get over to Finland and get it going. And there is no drug test too. That’s today’s One More Thing On The Morning Rat Race!

These 20 Artists Have Sold the Most Concert Tickets in the Past 40+ Years

Pollstar, a tour industry publication, has released a list of the artists who have sold the most concert tickets since 1980. On that list are some of rock’s most iconic acts.

Topping the concert ticket sales list was U2 with over 26 million tickets sold. Pollstar noted of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame group’s humble early days, “U2’s first show recorded in the archives was a performance for 1,440 patrons at Warfield Theatre in San Francisco on Nov. 29, 1981, during the band’s “October” tour supporting their second studio album. It was the fourth headlining trek in the group’s touring history and ran for about one year, wrapping in August 1982.”

A number of major rock acts are scattered throughout the top 2o of the massive 150 artist ranking. Among them are Bon Jovi, the Eagles, Metallica, Paul McCartney and more.
