Will Dudley Do-Right save the Apple iPhone 5s from an oncoming train?

Can an Apple iPhone 5s stand up to an oncoming train and survive the impact? YouTube channel TechRax taped two Apple iPhone 5s handsets, one at a time, to a railroad track We should point out that this is against the law because you are not allowed to hang around active train tracks. According to the Federal Railroad Administration, trespassing is the leading cause of railroad related deaths in the states. That figure reached 500 last year. But we digress...

That is pretty awesome though. It didn't seem to deform too much due to its aluminium body. It could've derailed it though!~

There's no way a 200 ton train is going to even notice a 114g iPhone on the track. Not even slightly. It would take a lot more than that to derail a train

It takes getting crushed by a train to make the iPhone a little bit exciting.

Says "Iphone is going to be crushed by train", shows a picture of a whore on the article. Classy, unintentional irony lol.

I can't decide whether you mean that his comment is mean or just saying the album name

The test was later tried on a Nokia. The train exploded. The Nokia was fine. There was a rapid and severe cover-up by government and transit authorities.

This guy is kind of an idiot. Union Pacific will probably sue him, plus where he was standing for the second (white) destruction could have injured him.
