The only thing a RAZR is good for? Stopping a bullet!

Reader Darren King knocked me over this Gizmodo story about a chap who took a bullet to his chest.

Only that’s exactly where his Motorola RAZR was — sat in his breast pocket.

“I stopped and I lifted up my sweatshirt and I took out the cell phone to check it to see if it was damaged and this bullet falls out,” Richard told the local CBS affiliate WWL. He said the shot—which was strong enough to tear a hole in his sweatshirt—felt like a punch to the chest.

Well I never.

It’s ok though, as Gizmodo explains:

Investigators said that the bullet could have come from as far away as a quarter of a mile, and that people shoot guns in that area all the time.

So, just like Bas Vegas, Basildon, Essex, then?
