we should, as a society, develop a custom to go "bla bla bla bla bla" and cover our eyes whenever we encounter an advertisement

I'm just imagining a theatre full of people doing this during the intro ads to a movie

@SuricrasiaOnline one time a friend asked me to stop trying to talk over the advertising reel "because someone else might want to watch it"

@robotcarsley @SuricrasiaOnline it’s a whole thing for people who aren’t into sportsball to watch the Superb Owl solely for the ads

policing, guns 

@SuricrasiaOnline I wonder how far movie theatres would try and push back on that before they give up.

I imagine them having guards with assault rifles in the front row and then they wonder why no one wants to go to the movies anymore.

@SuricrasiaOnline my daughter just screams "ADS! ADS! ADS!"

to be fair, she probably does that, because I do that...

@theotheroracle @SuricrasiaOnline can't wait for her to goto school so i can get regular calls from teachers who don't know how to use computers and the internet, and yet insist on showing "educational" YouTube videos in class

@SuricrasiaOnline but you are committing microtheft against the advertiser by not giving them your attention

@schratze @SuricrasiaOnline [tiny arresting officer] you have the microright to remain silent anything you microsay may be used against you in a tiny court of microlaw and blah blah blah
