Movie-Theater Etiquette

The Groupon Guide to: Movie-Theater Etiquette

Movie Rule #42 - Always dress in 1960's clothes
 when attending a 3-D film.
To maintain the suspension of disbelief necessary to enjoy a film, movie theaters maintain a complex code of conduct for their guests.

Here's a look at what you can and cannot do during a movie:
  • Talking is frowned upon.
  • Frowning is frowned upon, as your physical displeasure may spread to other patrons.
  • Texting is tolerated, as long as your phone's virtual keyboard noises are disabled.
  • Making the keyboard noises with your mouth is not necessary.
  • Enjoying popcorn is encouraged.
  • Dipping Reese's Pieces into your soda is discouraged, on grounds of radical deliciousness.
  • Deducing the film's twist ending before the director intended is considered rude.
  • Aiming a laser pointer at the screen is considered hilarious.
  • Being too good at preshow trivia will arouse the suspicion of the theater's security force.
  • Not being good enough at preshow trivia will do the same.
  • Allowing the emotions aroused by the film to later be replicated by real-world experiences is impossible.

Sunfyre's Google Glass Fundraiser (a.k.a. shameless begging)

Well, Google Glass went on sale today for a limited time to the general public.

Unfortunately, I can't exactly spare $1500 right now.… Commence shameless begging!

I try not to play the "help the disabled guy" card.  It goes against my nature. But in this case, I figured I'd make an exception (at least this is how I'm rationalizing it in my own head).

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
