    Default temptation and the dark movie theater

    I went to the movies today and just when the movie starts, a guy two seats to my right decided he would whip out his pda with a really bright back lite screen that looked like a small television and it was all I could do to keep from pulling out my L4 and shining it on him and then ask him if I could help put some light on the situation. I was going to hold it up to my L4 and shine it down at a 45 degree angle to help illuminate things. It was all I could do to resist the temptation. Any one else tempted in a similar way?

    Fortunately, I have not been to the movie theater with my MR-X yet, or I could have been arrested. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img]

    I don't know bout theatres becasue the ones round here can dim the house lights to the point where it's not totally dark.
    however, at a dark restaurant lit by candles I can't see the menu at all. If I bring out my light I'll look like a nerd to all the office hotties. I do keep an emergency kit in my drawer though, you know, pr of sneakers for going down stairs, sox, flashlights, nylon windbreaker and water.

    I went to a live version of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" about a month ago, and whipped out my Positron Laser and shined it around. The theatre was dark, and I had, by far, the brightest flashlight in the whole place.

    I always thought of how evil it would be to bring in a x990 into a movie theatre [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    What would you do with it... scorch the screen or blind the projectionist?

    Isn't there anybody else here but me who would tap this assclown on the shoulder and then give him a face full of L4 while politely asking "May I be of help?" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yellowlaugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/poke2.gif[/img]

    JackBlades, now yer talking. That's exactly where I was going with this thread, the guy was lighting up his immediate area and I was tempted to help him out by blasting my L4 onto his lap. He was a couple of seats away and I couldn't tap him on his shoulder but I could have showered him with extra light,heh , heh, heh,

    I just hope the that person is not a flashahlic himself, otherwise he may return "fire" and turns this into a fire fight [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/popcorn.gif[/img]

    I got in trouble with security at the Def Leppard concert here in NJ a couple months ago. I was using my E2e as a spotlight, shining my Arc LSH on the ceiling, etc... The guys told me they were very nice lights and that I needed to put them away, then asked where I got 'em.

    You'd be surprised how everyone liked using the Arc LSH under a beer instead of a lighter. It looks like a big torch, kinda.
