59% of Americans Now Email from the Throne


I thought this was a pretty funny stat from AOL Mail's fourth annual Email Addiction Survey. Email usage in the bathroom is up 6% from last year to 59%. I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one. I knew people were doing it with their blackberries (those button clicks are very loud and distinct) but 59% is a huge number. That probably means that your average cellphone user (non-blackberry) is also checking their emails from the throne as well. Gotta love it.

I get everything accomplished from the toilet at work and home, especially with my new iPhone 3G. I check sites and apps for the latest news and sports information, I watch videos and movies, I listen to music and I check email. I could pretty much work from there all day if I wanted to. It's the one place where I can get some peace and quiet and not have people all up in my face bothering me every 5 minutes. I have to worry about the auto-light switch going off in the work bathroom after 7 minutes but that's another story. I can't tell you how many times I had to jump up and wave my hands to turn that thing back on. WTF!!!

I wonder what percentage of bloggers post from the toilet? Whatever that number may be just went up a few percentage points...
