That Twitching in Your Thigh is Probably Guilt Because of Something You Did

A while ago Clive Thompson at collisiondetection blogged about "ringxiety" and phantom cellphone ringtones. Like many people, I hear those all the time, but I also experience numerous instances of phantom vibrations, where my thigh will ring and I try to answer it. I mentioned this at work, and three colleagues said they get them too. Planning to post something about it here, I leapt to the Internet to employ the Google™ Web-search service as a handy way to check my idea for originality. Let’s just say I’m not the first to notice this phenomenon.

Anyone else? I’m sure that non-existent radiation the communists are always talking about is completely harmless. Spasming muscles burn calories!

It happens to me almost daily. I'm sure it's more common when you're routinely in an environment that creates extraneous vibrations and noise (such as a train, bus, automobile, etc.) ugh!

You guys need to move to Restigne. My thigh never rings. Neither does my cell phone.

I must be giving out the wrong number for your thigh, then, because my friends say it never answers.

I am going to the doctor for this soon. I dont use a cell phone in my left pocket nor do I keep it on Vibrate. I do take a train every day. Its like a slight vibration its driving me nuts.
