    Oh boy. This is great! There is still a lot more to be done with zip ties. I’ve been thinking it would be big fun to zip tie people together. What better way is there for people to meet one another?

  2. [...] HOW TO KEEP MOTHERFU%#S FROM PUTTING THEIR SEATS BACK | F.A.T.. [...]

  3. but if they get together and lean back at the same time, yer fucked right?

  4. Paula says:

    Anyone likely to do this to the person in front of them on a plane, is most likely to be the same person who also leans THEIR seat back, at the same time.

  5. jason says:

    this sounds like a douchebag thing to do.

  6. thecolor says:

    that just rocks. there really is no need to move a seat back on a plane in coach, it’s like an inch… but just enough to make the person behind them totally uncomfortable. If you want to lean back, pay for the seat that really leans back, in biz or 1st class.

    Me, ‘could never afford it, but still don’t like being crunched or unable to read, etc. etc. ’cause of the recliner in front of me. :(

    It doesn’t just sound like a douchebag thing to do. It *is* a douchebag thing to do.

    How convenient, then, that the people in front of you always happen to be able to afford it. Or maybe it’s just that your comfort is more important than that of the people in front you.

  8. thecolor says:

    strange, it appears the comments are out of order with names. Hmm… and I don’t quite get the last one by “Anon”… “How convenient,…”?

  9. no says:

    You forgot…

    Step 1: Be a complete ass

    Or was that just obvious?

  10. [...] their seat and smash your screen into your hands. If this has ever happened to you then Evan from F.A.T. has figured our this hack to keep the person in front of you from doing just [...]

  11. thecolor says:

    WOW, I sense an anger problem here. that’s the type of person I would not want to sit behind.

  12. rod furlong says:

    article should be titled: How to stop the guy you’re sitting next to from putting his tray table down.

    or: Another way to get punched for being an idiot on an airplane.

  13. thecolor says:

    hahhaha, now I like that title. :) We should all be punished for trying to relax on an airplane, I mean, really!! If they intended us to relax, they wouldn’t treat us like sardines. :(

    re: “article should be titled: How to stop the guy you’re sitting next to from putting his tray table down.”

  14. evan says:

    People that put their seats back on airplanes are what is wrong with the world today. I will say that 1) I never put my seat back, and 2) war on all those that do.

  15. Axle says:

    so wait, you can’t use your tray table, the guy next to you can’t use his and neither person in front of you can lean back unless they both do? Seems like a sub-optimal hack to me.

  16. Ben says:

    I found the best method to stopping melonfarmers from putting their seats back is to hang the air jet directly at the top of their head and crank it full blast. After a few minutes they’re not going to be sleeping with a cold head and blowing air streaming down.

  17. sj says:

    This is the greatest invention of all time.
    Seriously.
    Quit putting your seat back in COACH you SELFISH MOTHERFUCKERS!

  18. thecolor says:

    this topic has hit totally hilarious. :) Flame or no flame.

  19. [...] those who fly frequently …..HOW TO KEEP MOTHERFU%#S FROM PUTTING THEIR SEATS BACK HOW TO KEEP MOTHERFU%#S FROM PUTTING THEIR SEATS BACK How To Keep Motherfu#%s From Putting Their Seats Back [...]

  20. Ivana Kutyurkokv says:

    This cocksucker hasn’t told everyone that when he’s a douchebag faggot and pulls this insane bullshit, HE’S reclining in comfort.

    Listen jackoff: Do this to me and I’ll MASSIVELLY FUCK YOU UP. I don’t give a rat’s ass if the flight’s diverted! You’ll be taught the lesson you so sorely need.

    Fuckhead

    “this sounds like a douchebag thing to do.

    THEN…

    It doesn’t just sound like a douchebag thing to do. It *is* a douchebag thing to do.

    It is NOT a bad thing if you are a 6.5 footer sitting behind a dbag that insists his comfort is more important than mine. Try riding in coach for more than two hours of this and you would change camps. immediately.
