Now all the assholes can go see the movies together and not actually watch it.

At least now I won't have to see people on their phones and kick the back of their seats to remind them to turn the damn thing off.

Imagine instead of smoker sections in society, we start having texting sections?
Good evening sir would like to sit in the dining hall or the bar jammed with people making ZERO eye contact and so many bleeps, ringtones and vibrating you'll feel like you just got shell shocked. so many bright Lcd screens in a dim lit room you'll get a complimentary migraine on the way in.

People 30 and under we better really hope that so much exposure too Un-ionized radio frequency (yea know the kind of signal every cell phone uses) really doesn't irradiate us. My old neighbor is a Senior RF deployment engineer he always worried about this, he himself and he has his young kids always use speaker phone to limit being close to the phone as much as he can, never keeps it on his person or pockets.

what is the point of even going to a movie if you're just going to text through it?

Didn't know you couldn't text during a movie. If you're just going to end up texting there was no point in seeing that movie.

So that plan ended as soon as it began

AMC: Hey guys you know what would be an awesome idea? Texting sections in movie theaters!

Everyone: FUCK NO!

AMC:..... okay then. Someone fire an intern for that idea and lets forget this ever happened.

Yea, let's ban texting....hell why stop there, ban any talking, laughing, sneezing, or even breathing in the theater...awesomeness!

agreed with above. the light from the phone is incredibly distracting - especially in a theater where all the lights are off (except from the screen)

sometimes there are small leaps in logic. then there are bigger jumps in logic. but you went a step further and made a rocket-jump in logic.

assuming you were serious (of course not):
