Going to the movies is a favorite pastime. I love to see a good film on a big screen with larger than life sound. Summer is an especially great time because all the big, action blockbusters happen. What makes it all go to crap is the people.
I have huge respect/kudos to a theater in Austin, Texas where the rules are the rules and if you don't like it...don't go!
My favorite rule is not allowing kids under 6 years old. I get so pissed off and annoyed when I am watching an adult movie and people who are too cheap to get a sitter drag their kids to the movie. We got sitters when ours was small. What makes these newer parents think that we want to hear their toddler yapping/crying etc. during the movie we just paid top dollar to see.
ANY talking/texting they will throw you out!! YES!! I am so tired of still seeing/hearing cell phones light up in a dark theater! Even after the sign tells you to turn them off you can still see the glow as they answer them. Are they such total assholes that they believe that they are exempt from the rules? I would applaud if I ever got to see one of them tossed on their ass. It seems that there is someone in every movie I got to. At least one jerk.
More people/businesses need to get on this bandwagon and start putting their foot down and maybe people will either stay home or get a clue.

I guess we are just too dumb to know how/what to eat. Yes, the food pyramid has been around forever and not too many gave it much attention. I saw it all through school, but it was not anything I used when cooking or food shopping. Now, it seems that the government has spent two million making a picture that any dummy can read who doesn't know how to eat!
Ever since daycare or elementary school we are told about healthy eating etc. If we choose to do it or not I don't think some group of idiots needs to make a ton of money coming up with some picture that they think we are all going to follow.
Next they might just as make little plates with compartments for us so we can just drop our food where it tells us to put it.
