No doubt AT&T will still charge you a Quarter per MMS you send AND RECEIVE with their amazing Grab-Your-Ankles Data Plan – which does not include text (and likely not MMS, when it is available…late this summer.)
Therefore – AT&T wins their second (yes, they count as Cingular – one and the same…) Jar-Jar Award for Raising Teh SuXX0R!
I loved it so much, I had to repost this Consumerist story:
David L. Mackie, a 35-year-old salesman from Oklahoma is perhaps the coolest person ever. He personalized his Capital One credit card with Nick Nolte’s mugshot, and now, embarrassed, Capital One has offered to pay him $50 to send it back.
You may have noticed that I modified the “Crap of Interest” section on the left sidebar to include Headlines as well as short subheadings, or quotes from the link. Sometime I run across funny or notable items that don’t require a full posting, and they will appear in this section. Be sure to check these out when there aren’t new postings on the main blog.
I have added my Twitter Feed on the right sidebar also. If you are a Twitter nut – to follow my updates – just look for user ‘wtc’ or go here.
“I am the father of our Star Wars movie world – the filmed entertainment, the features and now the animated film and television series,” (George Lucas) says. “And I’m going to do a live-action television series. Those are all things I am very involved in: I set them up and I train the people and I go through them all. I’m the father; that’s my work. Then we have the licensing group, which does the games, toys and books, and all that other stuff. I call that the son — and the son does pretty much what he wants.” He laughs. “Once in a while, they ask a question like ‘Can we kill off Yoda?’, things like that, but it’s very loose.
“Then we have the third group, the holy ghost, which is the bloggers and fans. They have created their own world. I worry about the father’s world. The son and holy ghost can go their own way.”
Yeah…uhm, what?!? So full of crap modest. Oh – but you forgot one little thing George:
As a tribute to George ‘do I get to come with you on your starship’ Lucas – I present you the anthology of WTC Jar-Jar Fail (click each to view related post):
With skyrocketing gas prices, it is clear that the American people can no longer afford the Republican Rubber Stamp Congress and its failure to stand up to Republican big oil and gas company cronies.
Democrats have a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels.”
-Nancy Pelosi (April 24, 2006)
Here’s some recent audio from Nancy on the oil price problem:
Nancy’s Oil Plan:
Make oil companies drill where it wouldn’t be cost effective. (Maybe Baskin-Robbins should open an ice cream parlor in Antarctica while we’re at it.)
It would take 10 years for the price to reflect any change, if the government allowed oil companies to drill today. (Wrong. This is basic economics (see chart below): Investors will immediately see the potential that more oil will be added to the world supply and reinvest so they won’t get hosed – this will cause costs to go down. Plus, as Mark points out – it won’t take ten years. If there is money to be made – they’ll get the rigs in place ASAP.)
The high price of oil is only because we have to “two oil men,” (Bush & Cheney) in the Whitehouse. (Yeah, and they’re forcing the price higher right at the end of their term in office for what…so they can have even crappier approval ratings? Plus, doesn’t this sound a little conspiratorial? Where’s the evidence?)
Meanwhile – we should be investing in alternatives like solar and wind. How exactly are solar and wind energy going to fuel the millions of trucks, trains, planes, and ships that are distributing food and goods around the country and the world?
The other solution Pelosi has put forth is to wait for the magical clean energy solution to come along. Ok, I support that – except again, what are we going to power our distribution and transportation networks on until then…Hope?
We need a realistic solution for the energy situation now. Challenge American ingenuity to come up with a clean solution for the future — but if the oil companies know where the oil is, and can drill in a relatively environmentally safe way, why not let them?
Here’s a little supply and demand graph refresher:
“Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, theynegotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.”
I’m sorry – I usually don’t resort to flat out insults, but…What a freaking clueless idiot!
This ludicruis comment is so typical of the know-nothing douchenozzels in Washington. It even earned Nancy the coveted flaming skull over at Ace of Spades (I had to transplant and quote):
Having blurted out, probably accidentally, that the surge was in fact successful, Granny Rictus McBotoxImplants now scrambles to credit the enemy nation murdering our troops with the victory our troops accomplished through blood, sweat, tears, and more blood.
It’s not our troops. It’s not Petraeus’ leadership. It’s not the Iraqis turning on the Al Qaeda murderers. No — it’s Iran’s goodwill.
