    I am really getting tired of people shouting into their phones while I sit
    on a bus or train seat near them or even in an outdoor cafe. Is there any
    small gadget that would create very local interference. One or two blasts
    should put a flea in their ears and get them off the phone.

    And as I am already here, anyone know of a radio that cuts out the
    commercials?

    TIA

    There are such gadgets, though they're much harder to find than all the
    articles a google search for "cellphone jammer" yields.

    As you are a Prodigy user, I'll assume you're in the USA -- tempting as
    it may be, jamming a cellphone might not be worth the legal penalties to
    you; see the legal page in the above article.

    You should also know that with a digital signal, which nearly all
    cellphones use most of the time now, simply creating "local
    interference" will not introduce a "flea in their ears" as it might with
    analog signals. The effect of jamming digital audio would be more like
    rapid disconnects/connects, resulting in a very choppy conversation, IF
    it didn't kill their connection altogether -- the legal page explains
    why ya can't do either.

    I find taking a ball bat to the offenders works quite well. Most
    likely a hell of lot cheaper that a a radio jammer. Now if I could
    figure out a way to get those drivers to get of their phones, life
    would be grand.

    **** you. Other people are free to speak on their phones anywhere
    short of a courtroom or theater or play. Take your fingers out of your
    ass and stick them in your ears, asswipe.

    What you are after is a fucking federal offense, you criminally
    minded fucktard.

    I find that a nice curare dart is good for retards that can't handle
    other people getting on with their lives. If I could shoot every one
    of you retarded bastards with one, life would be grand.

    Thanks Ray.

    I am in USA and I think I found the solution when I was answering Jeff's
    email.

    What's the penalty for firing stinks?

  13. He's also stupid. Some research has shown that 50% of the pretentious
    cellphones calls are to no one.

    The trick is to start asking the person on the phone all about their
    business they're talking about. "So how did Jane meet Paul?" Why doesn't
    Jane like their son?" "Did Paul wear a condom?"

    They get most offended while standing in the shop queue with bunch of
    complete strangers asking them questions about their telephone conversation
    everyone has to listen to.

    :) Try it. The reaction really REALLY is worth it. :)
     
  15. Or

    "Blood EVERYWHERE? You can clean it up with meat tenderizer but you'll need
    a lot of it. And run the knife through the dishwasher on power cycle at
    least three times".

    But I already like opera. How does that help me --- oooohh, I got it. I'll
    bring a radio or tape recorder along and blare it at them, and MassiveProng.
    You know that guy probably has just a little worm and is exaggerating again
    ;-)

    Now there's a great idea. About a month ago a real skunk fired at something
    about 20 feet from where I live and that stuff still stinks a bit. For the
    first two weeks it was like getting a kick on the nose. A water pistol
    filled with that would be as good as a shotgun.
     

  18. MassivePong is more accurate.

    I have an even better idea. I will get a pet skunk, train it to shoot at
    people with cell phones, and then take it along on the bus. :)
