I believe that cell phone jammers should ABSOLUTELY be installed in movie theatres. Jesus fucking christ, they TELL you to TURN YOUR CELL PHONE OFF before every movie. That's not subtlety or subliminal messages; that's plain fucking english, my friend. People who talk on cell phones should be hung by a discreet steel-wire noose that slides noiselessly from the ceiling, thereby ceasing their conversation and their life. I believe this would decrease cell phone conversations in theatres exponentially. Or at least heavy sand bags could be deployed to knock them out. This goes for libraries as well, and any area where you are explicitly told to NOT be loud and NOT talk on your cell phone. Polite suggestions, yes, but any idiot can tell they are basically RULES. Abide by them or leave the premises by your own means or others. To all those complaining about cell phone conversations outdoors and in other public places where cell phone usage is generally permitted: Suck it up. This is a free world, and as long as they're not exposing themselves or shrieking invectives at a high rate, they can do whatever the hell they please. Personally, I don't like assholes who talk loud on their phone about anything, especially not about their sex lives. Those people make me make this face
: Then I turn into this
and do something bad Politely asking someone to keep it down or to go elsewhere is the best strategy. Don't be a smug prick and jam someone's cell phone. If I ever catch anyone jamming calls in public, I am going to find a policeman, and you will find yourself in jail with a nice $11,000 fine. I'm generally quite a laid back individual, and am a firm believer, and practitioner, of non-confrontational solutions. If someone is an asshole and says "Fuck you." when you ask them to keep it down, just think like I do: Rest assured that they are incredibly insecure, most likely have a small penis, and have some bizarre fetish like necrophilia or beastiality. Just remember this, and thank God that you're not them.
