If you're wondering where all your time is going, here's THE answer. You're literally wasting your life staring at your phone.

A new survey found the average Android user spends three hours and 42 minutes a day looking at their phone, and the average iPhone user spends four hours and 54 minutes.

A Very Slow Criminal Got Chased Down by a Guy on a Riding Mower

If you can't run faster than this, you deserve to be caught . . .

A woman named Debra Grebas tried to cash a bogus check using someone else's ID in Lincoln, Nebraska last Saturday. Then she crashed her car trying to outrun the cops and got arrested.

But a 23-year-old guy named Deandre France was also in the car with her, working as her accomplice. And he tried to take off on foot.

And somehow, a random guy managed to chase him down on a RIDING MOWER.

There's police helicopter footage that shows the end of it. You can see the guy on the lawnmower tearing down the sidewalk at about eight miles an hour. Then he follows Deandre behind a house.

A cop car pulls up right after that, and the guy on the mower walks out holding Deandre by the arm.

Turns out the guy's name is John Massie. And he was working a job for a lawn care company when he saw it all go down.

The woman Deandre was with got arrested for forgery. And he's facing charges for criminal possession of a transaction device.
