Postby GalFisk » Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:07 am

It has never happened to me, but I imagine bleaning must be a very frustrating exeprience.

So it partially involves losing connection while using a bluetooth, say, during a phone call? Is the connection lost as a result of the person's actions? For another specific reason? Could you also blean while listening to music over Bluetooth?

Could you blean alone in a field naked with nothing but the phone and headset (there's an image for you)? Does it require you to be in a specific location? Or with another relevant item?

Might you blean on a train? On a plane? On a bus?

Is the connection lost by interacting with the phone? With the headset/earpiece? Does bleaning also involve what a person does as a result of losing connection?

Is movement relevant? Is a person who bleans in motion at the time? Is electronic interference relevant? Do buildings, trees, etc block a signal?

Does it involve something you do with your hands? With your head? Let's say for now this is on a train: would it matter whether the train was in motion? Are the actions of others relevant? Could you blean if you were the only one in your train car?
