This is a question Pointless Experiments

Pavlov's Frog writes: I once spent 20 minutes with my eyes closed to see what it was like being blind. I smashed my knee on the kitchen cupboard, and decided I'd be better off deaf as you can still watch television.

Unbreakable phone
I'd just got a brand new Nokia phone - it was black, the size of half a brick and entirely encased in rubber. I took it out of its box and placed it carefully on the table.

"New phone. Its unbreakable!" I boasted.

My mate looked at it for a moment, then picked it up and smashed the screen against a corner of the table as hard as he could.

"No it aint" he said, and went back to watching the Golden Girls.

Genius. With mates like that...

Similar story...
Had a mate called Ryan who'd just got a new phone, one of those old "rugged and sporty, honest" type phones.

"look, it's so tough it bounces" he said, bouncing it. And it did.

So he bravely tried it against other things. Walls, doors, concrete, etc, bounced off them all.
Turns out it couldn't withstand a 2ft drop onto carpet and wouldn't switch back on when he tried it :D

I had one of those rubber phones once
'splashproof' it said. So I decided to test this by using it as a scoop to splash people from a swimming pool.

It wasn't submergeproof.
