HP Dual-Core Notebook w/ Blu-ray

by Wootbot

Sir? Sir I’m going to have to ask you to put that away.

Sir, FAA regulations prohibit the use of electronic devices during takeoff and landing.

“If you don’t mind, I’m trying to distract myself from the upcoming six hours of hell-in-a-tube by watching a movie on my HP Dual-Core Notebook with Blu-ray.”

“Sir, that’s what I’m saying. You can’t turn that device on until we’re at a safe altitude.”

“What happens then?”

“Well, then you can turn electronics back on.”

“No, I mean what changes that all of a sudden you’re not worried about my 17.3” LED Display, 1.9GHz dual-core processor, and 6GB DDR3 memory, and Blu-ray player?”

“Sir, those are the rules.”

“Ridiculous! Since when do grown adults accept ‘because I said so?’ Look, I know what this is about. It’s about keeping people cooperative and awake for the safety presentation, but I’ve flown before. I get it.”

“Sir, the laptop prevents you from getting in the proper position should the plane need to make an emergency landing-”

“A crash. You’re talking about a crash. And are you honestly going to sit there with a straight look on your face and tell me that the thousands of fatalities in airplane crashes could’ve been avoided had everyone just been sitting properly?”

“Sir, you need to be alert in case there’s an incident-”

“You know what’s going to make me alert? The plane suddenly plummeting from the sky. I promise you, I’ll take my headphones off if that happens.”


“Actually, you know what? Scratch that. I’m gonna leave ‘em on if we crash, because I’d rather spend my last waking minutes watching 300 again than be snapping back to attentiveness with just enough time to face the horrific realization that life is finite and my time is up.”

“Sir, I’m going to have the Air Marshall pepper spray you and escort you off the plane if you continue like this.”

“All right, you make a good point. I’m turning it off.”
