How to Handle an Irritating Seatmate

I want to thank Neal Boortz, a retired talk show host, for providing the Flash! animation used here; I don't know if anyone on his staff made it originally.

We've all had times when we sat next to somebody on a plane, bus or train that annoyed us. Here's a way to have some high-tech fun, the next time it happens:

1. Remove your laptop computer from its case. Boot it up.

2. Connect to the Internet if the laptop doesn't do so automatically.

3. Make sure the person bugging you can see what's on your screen.

4. Raise your head towards the sky, and close your eyes.

5. Then hit this link.

6. And maybe say goodbye!
