Syrian Rebel Texts with One Hand, Machine Guns with the Other

Sometimes you just have to send out that text. This Syrian rebel, photographed by C.J. Chivers, seems to be in that position. According to Chivers, even though there's a war on, a lot of the countryside has cell service, and many fighters spend a lot of time texting, and trying to figure out how they can charge their phones.

So what do you think, is this better or worse than texting while driving?[THE GUN. via @erinmcunningham]
