Man paying attention to smartphone, steps on four-foot snake

People, don't be afraid to NOT use your smartphone every second of every day.

People, don't be afraid to pay better attention to your surroundings while using your smartphone out in the world. A DJ in Oklahoma was walking into a building while using his Google Android smartphone, and accidentally stepped on a bull snake that was about four feet in length.

The non-venomous snake quickly snapped at the DJ, instantly biting him on the leg before trying to escape. Oklahoma has endured a large amount of rain, and it's possible the snake was just trying to get somewhere dry. Surveillance was taken from the O.K. Skateland, in Chickasha, Oklahoma, where the DJ was scheduled to work a birthday party.

I guess, even if people so engrossed in their smartphones aren't walking into poles, or disappearing into open manholes in the city, then they can still get punished while in less-crowded areas.
