Rates for movie theaters busses, airplanes and other things are often discounted for children or the elderly, which i find ironic because it is these individuals who tend to take the most time and resources to manage, they tend to act the most complainsome and entitled and make demands for extra accomodations, and can be the most detrimental to the general atomophere they inhabit.

I believe a fee structure should be based on a individuals history of being being loud, flatulent, demanding and unpleasant or overly chaty with the disinterested. Likewise discounts could be given to the quiet people who dont ask for special service, clean up after themselves and dont take up much space portentially if a person was sufficiently pleasant and there demands were low theri actions might justify them gaining free admision.

Charlie Brooker imagined what a world where an implementation of this idea had taken place would be like, I think they have it on Netflix. [Zeuxis, Oct 02 2017]


       Despite the lack of punctuation, reprehensible grammar, randim spelling, rant-like delivery, and unforgivably incorrect use of the word "disinterested ", this unpromising ore could be smelted into the parent metal of a quite useful idea.

       In exaple if halfbakery had a fee based admission structure. I belive I should pay +10 percent. while i post less than average, my ideas are often hard to read. while i am not a troll my comments usually do not add any net entertainment value. Yet I have never asked for free hot water for tea, or lashed out because my pants feel poopy.

       That's only because they have not fully solved the SOIP issue yet. Once scents can be accurately conveyed over the internet, your diaper will drive appropriate fee adjustments.

       First they came for the adolescent, and I did not speak out— Because I was no longer adolescent.   

       Then they came for the geriatric, and I did not speak out— Because I was not yet geriatric.   

       Then they came for the flatulent... and I knew I was totally screwed-   

       Then they came for the incontinent - and went away again, holding their noses and trying not to retch ...
