And you can apply the same rule during wargames… grin

(Except for the paying the tab part…)

I would ALWAYS win, because I would never, EVER answer a phone in a restaurant, especially when I am with friends or family. It's rude as hell.

Somebodies sure to pour maple syrup over them and try to eat them.

Maybe for wargaming a cumulative negative modifier can be assigned to offending players? grin

Then again, how would the game apply to someone who likes to take pictures of their food or drink on occasion when eating out, and also taking pictures of games using their cellphone? huh?

It would apply just the same. Nobody frikkin' CARES what you are eating at dinner. The people that post those sort of everyday minutia to Facebook need a good whacking, and regularly. Games are different, but I'd rather use a nice actual camera.

Dead on Nazrat…

How is this enforced, exactly?

What sort of person, other than the sort that isn't rude and cellphone obsessed, and thus does not create the targeted problem, would agree to this?

Seems like a waste of time, or an obnoxious way to not invite some of your friends to dinner.

It also fails to cover the people who are cellphone-obsessed, but aren't cheap bastards.

I have long been puzzled by the trend to photograph every damn meal you eat and post it on FB. It seems particularly prevalent here in Asia.

I did once photograph a live lobster at a seafood restaurant while on holiday and also the resultant 'after' shot when it re-appeared on my plate. But apart form that, nope.
