Weird World: Savolinna, Finland

Wondering what to do with your old Nokia? Trying visiting Finland for the World Mobile Phone Throwing Championships...

Ahhh, the Nokia 5110 – we miss the good old days of Snake and battery life. If you're anything like us, your old mobiles will be gathering dust in a draw of tangled cables. Here's a better way to treat them: hurling them as far as you can in the World Mobile Phone Throwing Championships in Savolinna. People travel for miles to take part and it's all very serious – there are no doping tests (phew) but you will be disqualified if you're considered a danger to the public. ACT NORMAL.
