How about I'd like everyone to put away their precious CRAP and pay attention during takeoff and landing just in case, oh I don't know, we all need to get out in a hurry.
Pay attention to what? The back side of the seat in front of me?
Perhaps I should use the time to contemplate how very tenuous this thing called life is and how easily it can be snuffed out instantly in the event this aircraft suddenly explodes in a huge fireball on takeoff. Maybe I should take very careful notice of the location of the exit doors and meticulously plan how I'm going to incapacitate the unfortunate innocents in my way as I desperately attempt to flee the impending disaster.
There are just a couple more important things going on at any given time during a flight than killing that last little piggy.
Yes, but those things are all going on in the cockpit and out of my control. Perhaps I should play a little game to keep my mind preoccupied, as I admit I have a little problem with flying, actually.
