Youths Check Their Phones Every 10 Minutes

A study of 2,000 youths (sponsored by Kana Software and published in the Daily Mail) found that people ages 18 to 24 looked at their phone every 9 minutes and 50 seconds, while those ages 25 to 34 looked at their phones every 9 minutes and 55 seconds.

I like to imagine that this study was titled: Exactly How Often Annoying Youths Do That Thing That Makes Them Annoying Youths. Every ten gosh-darn minutes! Millennials are doing this millennial thing every ten gosh-darn minutes of their gosh-darn lives. Must they live and communicate in the way that they live and communicate? I suppose they must, but at least they do it with the timely precision of a well-oiled pendulum clock of yore.
