Nothing worse than watching your fat arse trying to squat a bar

I suppose if I actually was thin, with decent muscle tone I'd like to look at myself a lot too, though ...

Is that a metal bar, or have you picked up a bit of a back-woods accent?

Because that makes quite a difference.

I'm ready to blame Apple for many things, but not this.

Man dies charging iPhone while in the bath - BBC News

You plug in an electrical item and then put in on your chest while in the bath ....

If he was an Android user, he'd have been smart enough to know not to do that.

Apple don't make submersible phones, that would be a cost option. Also battery life on Apple products is not very good.
