My idea of hell…

Forget the safety issues – of which there are many – is there any worse idea than the idea of allowing mobile phone calls on planes?

I can think of nothing worse than sitting for 1, 6 or 9 hours listening to people barking into their mobiles, hearing text messages arriving and worse.

Can you imagine the first couple of years after this “technology” is introduced?

One hundred calls on every single flight for three years which go as follows:


“Hey, it’s me?”

“You’ll never guess where I’m calling from…”

“… the plane!”

“No I am, seriously…”


Ladies and gentlemen, the future sanity of mankind is at risk
