The cellular approach

Vampire2727, ASF: "You're on a bus, sitting next to a HB and there's no good excuse to
start talking... Take your mobile/cellular phone, pretend to call someone and have a fictitious
(short) conversation. Then hang up. Start to comment about the
conversation with the HB. The beauty of the thing is: you get to CHOOSE the subject of the
conversation on the phone... so when you start talking to the HB, you're
at whatever subject you chose."
Suggestion by Tom, ASF: "Err... make sure to disable your phone so that it doesn't ring when you
pretend you're using it :)"
Suggestion by Nathan Szilard, ASF: "You look her in the eyes and say to your fictitious friend
"Yeah, it's always the same story, girls keep ogling at me, yeaaah, there's one in front of me, and you know what the worst is? She's shy. ... Yeah she's shy. She's been looking at me for 10 min.
And she hasn't even yet started a conversation! Ok; I mean, at least I appreciate the fact that she has a LOT of self-control; she has not felt me up so far." If she doesn't laugh HERE, well damn:)"
Suggestion by Ned Ragdnuos, ASF: "Some phones have a ringer test or a ringer volume control, which you could
use to pretend the phone is ringing. Then you ask "First you gotta give me your ID number. OK. Let me remind you the rate for this call is 80 cents a minute." And you look up the number in a book or whatever, and start your stopwatch. Then you launch into a phone-sex conversation like as if you're selling phone sex. The great thing about this method is you can have a cheat-sheet
listing all the patterns right there in front of you."
