You want to do WHAT with your cellphone?

Yet another stupid idea from the Federal Government: They’ve thinking about approving cellphone use aboard aircraft. Awful, terrible, horrible.

That’s what you’d want: Someone next to you talking on the phone during your Washington DC to San Francisco flight. Five hours of hell, listening to some super-bag talk about bulls**t at conversation level. That’s something that just bothers me in total: People talk on their cellphones like there’s no microphone in the device. The Washington Post opinion writer Jonathan Capehart sums it up like this:

The possibility of enduring ceaseless inane phone conversations while trapped in an aluminum tube 35,000 feet above the earth is truly awesome. About as awesome as that time in the 1990s when I endured a flight from Paris to New York seated across the aisle from a man who chain smoked the entire nine-hour flight.

I love sarcasm. I hate cellphones. I’m going to write my congressperson on this subject, while suggesting the person bringing this to a vote have to sit on commercial aircraft next to some a-hole talking for the entire flight. They will be flown from Dallas to Atlanta to Chicago to Denver … horrible hub airports … for life. That’s about the most deserving penalty I could imagine.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
