(Newser) – The times, they are a-changin’—and that calls for new rules of etiquette. To help out, Brad Pitt addresses issues ranging from inter-Rock Band dynamics to texting in the bathroom for Wired:

  • Problem: Your Rock Band bassist sucks. Solution: “Fire his ass. Bonus: It'll put the others on notice.”
  • Problem: Your World of Warcraft wife might actually be a guy. Solution: “If it's good, don't check under the hood.”

  • Problem: You crave porn at work. Solution: “Don't just look at it at work, bring in your old porn mags and scan them there! It's like converting your vinyl to MP3s.”
  • Problem: Your phone rings during a movie. Solution: Don’t answer. “It may be a brief interruption—just a few seconds—but what if someone sitting near you is trying to make a decent bootleg?”
  • Problem: You need to make a call while using the bathroom. Solution: “You should only text in the bathroom. Just be sure you don't hit the wrong button and end up putting a photo of your junk on Twitter.”
