Surveys o' the day

Yes, they are French.

First up, do not ring a 15-17 year old boy on his mobile, as a rather loathsome 22% admit to using it in the loo.  Compared to 8% of the wider public.    Equally, 32% of girls 12-17% are looking for trouble as they use their mobiles in the bathroom.  4% of the Plain People of France use their mobiles in the cellar.  Presumably the rest cannot get a signal.   41% of Gauls use their mobiles as torches, which is odd.

Elsewhere, 16% consider mobiles bad for French society.  91% of adolescents think that mobiles are good for adolescents, whereas only 32% of the 40+ cohort agree.  Probably because they are paying for them....

Sticking with our Gallic chums, just 29% of them can, unprompted, name their regional president. My old friend Ségolène Royal does rather better, with 83% naming her as the head honchette of Poitou-Charentes.  The Prexies of Centre and Nord Pas de Calais muster a laughable 7% and 8% respectively.  Proving that stupidity is indeed the basic building block of the universe, fewer than two-thirds can name the political colour of their home region.

Whilst being surprised by the high figure of 41% I must admit to using my mobile as a torch after a wrong turning in the tunnels underneath the Moorish castle in Ronda yesterday. I can't report on the reception though but I can't imagine the tunnels were designed with signal strength in mind.

So mobiles do have strange yet practical uses at the oddest of times.
