Food comas apparently awaken food kleptos.

IDH Research found smartphones are most likely to be stolen at restaurants.

But it's not because you're too distracted with the dessert menu.

44% of the time people simply forget them at their table.

The study also found thefts tend to peak between 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm.

While it's frightening to think of everything that could happen when someone gets ahold of your phone, almost half the time the worst consequence is lost productivity.

And yet 68% of people say they're willing to put themselves in danger to avoid losing their phone.
