nah. to be completely BOFHly, it would have to have spikes.

Or maybe it'd have to shock the person trying to recline. :-)

Heh.

Let's combine this with your last post.

Re: Heh.

Well, then you'd want the person being reclined upon to get the shocks. ;-) Don't want to make the asshole trying to break your knees feel good.

Yay

I need one of these. Last week it really pissed me off that there were only a handful of folks reclining on my flights, and at least one of them is always in front of me. Not to mention that on the slightly bouncy ride back into Boston, the guy in front of me didn't put his seat back into the upright position and the attendants said nada!!!

You need one? I'm your height and twice as bulky. :-)

Like they'll be able to spot everyone using them. Go for it.

Do I need one? YES! I sit down and my knees are already pressed into the seat pocket. When someone puts their seat back (if I'm not paying attention), I scream in pain. Horrible, horrible pain!

On the other hand, if I *am* paying attention and can catch the person fumbling with their seat controls, I usually will push back with my knees and a hand in order to restrict the reclining as much as possible. The person thinks their seat is broken or only goes back a smidgen and gives up.
