Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Note to all:

You know that cell phone that you're holding to your face in public?
Yeah, that one.
Well you know those little holes at the end that's not at your ear?
Go ahead and look. I'll wait.
Okay. That's your phone's microphone.
It's right next to your frickin' mouth!

Pay attention, because I'm only going to say this politely one time:

You do NOT need to shout or indeed even raise your voice when speaking into a microphone that is within 2 inches of your piehole mouth. Good modern microphones pick up proximal noise better than ambient noise. This may mean that you might not be able to hear yourself speak. That's okay-- they can. If you have to shout, then your phone/radio/communications device is broken-- get a new one.

The movie you're watching? It's not only about you...

I LOVE the people who completely disregard all the frickin' signs plastered ALL OVER THE SPA which proclaim "NO CELL PHONE USE - SERVICES IN PROGRESS". [/sarcasm]

Okay, I'll stop shouting now, since I got that out of my system.

One of the few instances where I agree 100% with instant capital punishment is when people talk on their cell phones during a movie.

They should rent out suppressed .22s at the popcorn counter just for that purpose.

"Yeah, dawg, I'm at the mov..." *PLOP PLOP* "...urrrgh."

(Most of the douchebags who answer their ringing phones in a movie theater also have annoying ring tones to boot, like some rap "song" or Top Ten crap at full volume.)

As far as I'm concerned, thats reason #49365 that pistol whipping should be an acceptable means of communication.

But Marko, then you'd have to deal with the stench of voided bowels and bladders for the rest of the show...I don't know if I could hang.

sigh... the ones I 'love' are the abusive and foul mouthed at the top of their lungs... NOT

We actually built a little white noise generator a few years ago that would cause a cell phone to drop calls, maybe I need to look at repackaging that... hmmmm
