My mantra.  ;5; ;5; ;5; ;5; ;5;

Have you seen the commercial where the couple from the city goes camping? They are in a tent at night listening to the sounds of frogs and crickets and realize they miss the city sounds. She has app for city sounds and plays it, horns, traffic, etc. and they sleep like babies.

I have been camping...in a tent. Then, next space over a nice big RV complete with satellite dish for their television, their microwave and all the other comforts of home.

Why bother camping if you can't leave the mindless tube at home?

As for annoying people in public...
it can be fun especially if they (and/or their children) were annoying first

I used to LOVE Prairie Dog Hunt

I was pretty good too.

Simple Brainless Games

I have long been a fan of what I call "simple brainless games".

Some of my favorites (basically all DOS based games):

Asteroids
Bouncing Babies
Frogger
Pac Man
Prairie Dog Hunt
Space Invaders
Super Mario

I have two games on my phone:

Ant Smasher (had for a number of years, it's loud and very annoying to anyone nearby)
Bouncing Babies (also a bit noisy, especially the opening screen)

I do love to annoy people in public. Is that a surprise to anyone?

I also don't answer my phone when it rings, unless a specific ringtone for a handful of people. Other people are really annoyed if you let a cellular ring and don't answer it.
