Isn’t that exciting?! Holding your phone with your thumb and index finger is the only rule you have to follow The game wouldn’t be fun unless the stakes were high!
People say that this thrilling moment is fueled by their adrenaline rush and love for experimentation. This bizarre challenge has given us, the viewers, endless amounts of anxiety and stress.

Whoever engages in this dangling act has engaged in its risks as well. Pinching your phone as close to the edge as possible and being confident that you will still have it the moment after that picture is has been taken requires a lot of courage; unless you have a numerous supply of other phones, in that case it wouldn’t really matter to you.
