Dude Gets Thumb Surgery For iPhone

This is about the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard of. Some dude named Thomas Martel got thumb surgery so that it’d be easier for him to use his iPhone. Now although Tom could argue that he’s a tall guy and therefore needed the surgery, it’s still not worth slicing skin for the sake of using a phone. The procedure was done by making a small incision into both thumbs and shaving down the bones, followed by careful muscular alteration and modification of the fingernails.

In essence, this is totally gross and probably very painful. Never alter your fingers just so you can text Becky to tell her how great that skirt looked today at work. Seriously.
