judgement, as in showing a lack of

I read today that soon passengers on European flights may be allowed to use their cell phones on board. How's that for living hell? Sartre can come back from the dead and write "No Exit" all over again. I vow that if the person next to me is yakking away on his cell phone, I will read my book out loud for the benefit of everyone. I just started reading This Repubic of Suffering, which seems apt.

I couldn't agree more. I sometimes talk to myself when stuck next to a cellphone talker. When I get glares and strange looks, I just act oblivious, the way phone talkers do.

Oh no, bad idea.

I figure if I get strange looks I can just read the book into my cell phone.

Or I could put on my ipod and sing. Air guitar also an option.

Haa! great idea ! I think I'll do that--except I'll pretend to be talking on my cell to a small child, and read the same children's book a loud several times.

"What's that honey? You can't hear mommy? Don't cry, Mommy will talk louder."

I love that idea. Baby talk will drive the crowds wild. Dose it carefully, though. I wouldn't want to see your life put in danger.
