Ever try and watch a “serious” movie and your movie-watching buddies just won’t stop making dopey comments the whole time, ruining the experience for you? I’ll answer this for you: yes. Sometimes it’s better to be a loner. Unless it’s a comedy—which are always better to watch with other people—or a lame movie you don’t really care about in the first place, you’re probably better off with the old headphones-and-laptop method. Here’s why…
Why It’s Better to Watch Movies Alone On Your Laptop
- No distractions from the outside world.
- You can pause the movie whenever you want to check your email, if need be.
- You can conveniently monitor and re-prioritize your music/porn downloads at the bottom left of the screen, should you feel the need.
- You can jump over to WordPress real quick and tune up tomorrow’s post, should it strike your fancy.
- You can keep your finger on the pulse of Facebook; be the first to Like your friends’ silly comments, if you’re into that sort of thing.
- You can quickly investigate interesting Yahoo! headlines via RSS, should you want to.
- You can heat up your crotch with computer-warmth, to the point of first-degree burns, if you’re into that.
- You can take a nice refreshing break when your laptop runs out of power halfway through the movie, should you want to.
- You can extend said refreshing break for as long as an hour while your ancient laptop struggles to reconnect to the Internet.
- Once you finally get back to the Netflix homepage, you can abandon your in-progress movie at any time in favor of a more interesting looking alternative in your colorful Netflix queue.
Like I said, when you watch a movie alone on your laptop you can really tune out the world and focus on the task at hand. I highly recommend it.
What about you, Reader? Would you prefer watch a “serious” movie alone, or with a bunch of people who are likely to make dumb comments the whole time?
