Love this idea!!! Phone Stack: It works like this: As you arrive at dinner, each person places their phone face down in the center of the table. As dinner progresses, you’ll hear various texts and emails arriving. You will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. You are bound by the single, all-important rule of the phone stack: Whoever picks up their phone foots the entire lunch/dinner bill. It's about time people learned phone etiquette!
The Scold's Bridle, a British invention, possibly originating in Scotland, used between the 16th and 19th Century. It was a device used to control, humiliate and punish gossiping, troublesome women by effectively gagging them. Scold comes from the 'common scold': a public nuisance, more often than not women, who habitually gossiped and quarrelled with their neighbours, while the name bridle describes the part that fitted into the mouth.
