YOU should read a paper sometime, or maybe because a live near a major manufacture, that I actually PAY ATTENTION to aviation news.
At least a couple time a month their a stories about someone getting ejected/remove from a flight for failing to follow "Turn it off and buckle up" instructions while still on the taxiway.
Flight attendants get up at 1500 feet, YOU have to stay seated until 10K.
and several time a week planes to/from Seattle alone do a return to terminal/closest airport for mechanical reasons and maybe one more for passenger health or discipline problems.
Try googling Emergency landing in google news
and hard cover book?!? do they even make those anymore?
not nearly as distracting as a reader/game/ movie on a little screen.
