This revision addresses the following problems the
- Auto adjustable seats too expensive
- Cheating is way too easy
- Not communist enough .. IMHO
Each seat is *manually* adjustable. Each person adjusts
their own seat.
... wouldn't they cheat?
That's where the auto-enforcement system comes in. It
consists of two components. A scanning laser that
anyone who is sticking out above a preset threshold.
Upon detection the scanning laser sends coordinates of
offender to a punishment device of some kind. I leave
design of such a punishment device to the annotation
section. The design constraints are minimal: Input
coords, output _____your_choice____
Notes: I was also considering adding a warning device of
some kind: ex: "Warning you are out of compliance.
Please return to a compliant position within 5,4,3,2 ...."
. But I guess it's kind of optional. Do you really need a
warning? Not if it's a hard core communist stadium.
Similarly, with things like a "toilet break pass" - to allow
you to temporarily break the rule. Again, not really that
important considering the context. There is no such
thing as a pee break ... and what the
hell is standing up to buy a snack? We're talking
Pyongyang - not Las Vegas.
I was kind of sad about the wave possibility disappearing
.. but that's not true either. If it was a lazy ass
capitalist pig stadium .. then yes, let them ride up and
on their automatic seats all night long. But here in
we have a lot
of young energetic people who can go up and down
perfectly to the tune of the undulating laser beam
without any such lazy seats... if not, they get a
small dose of constructive feedback that's all
